All these 620s are making up to 600% more power than the ancient hewn-from-stone 675s. The 620s weigh in at just over 4kg (wet, full tank of fuel) compared to the 675s 297kg (dry weight, without wheels). I also believe that 675s should be allowed to run brakes next year as I'm getting fed up with leaping over the bars and grabbing the front wheel with my teeth.

Finally, I'd like to see a change to rules which would allow 675 riders to compete without a blindfold and the removal of the rule that gives poncy 620 riders a four lap headstart....

All I want is a level playing field heavily biased in our favour!

But whose bike is full of gravel??

(I hoped that you wouldn't notice and that it might even up your excessive power to weight ratio):P
