No idea, I'm talking about his 2017 contract with Yamaha.

His contract may only require racing during the SX season, but it could also include representing the company until the "normal" contract end timeframe.

Rental car. Even if you train it down to Vancouver/Portland, you'll have to hire a taxi/uber to get to the track. That'll be the easy part, though. The hard part will be getting a taxi/uber to come get you after the event........... Priceline a rental ... more »

Yeah, could go any which way. But it sounds like the bike was a year and a half old and if it was used heavily as a "stunt bike" each weekend, that could add up to an awful lot of abuse, stress, etc.

Well, this might cancel out Zero from future development...... http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/stuntwoman-sues-for-injuries-suffered-during-marvel-universe-live-show/

I think the Zero is fairly viable, although they don't seem to be as interested in an off road competition type of bike at the moment. But according to their website, they have over 100 law enforcement agencies using their fleet services. Be interesting ... more »

Interesting to see that Tesla has already invested in them. Also Bob Fox........

They do on their street legal bikes. It's roughly a similar percentage, $1500 on a RedShift SM.

The Alta gang is from the original Tesla team. I'd bet that fact alone would bring some decent VC capital to the plate when they do funding rounds.....

If he went off the track on that next uphill, then I could see the argument about not making the top of the hill from a standstill. But from where he was, there is no way that a 2 time National Champion on a factory Honda can't get to that next ledge ... more »

I wouldn't bet against it right now. If he doesn't start riding full speed by October, I might start doubting it. He's definitely got the right attitude and A1 can be pretty unpredictable and have some surprising outcomes!

One of my college roommates had to eat at least 12,000 calories a day, and during certain times of the year as much as 15,000 calories a day, just to maintain his weight and muscle mass. It was insane, but his pre-bed "snack" often consisted of 4 or ... more »

The largest increase in suicide risk for SSRI users is in the first two weeks of beginning them. After that the risk drops significantly. The current thought is that the things that SSRIs do to help you get up in the morning and get stuff done also lets ... more »
