I made this picture (scanned, no digital pic) of "Gunner" in 1991, Belgium, Nismes (nog sure). This was a big jump (in those days) and Mike was the only jumping it frequently..

I know I'am a little late in this discussion.. But 10 years ago Rinaldi did have different timing for sound control when the bike is'nt in gear. They had it with the 2-strokes and with the early 4-stroke. I'am not involved in GP anymore but I would think ... more »

That may be the case for some "b" or "c" level team. But I don't think TwoTwo is putting a sticker on a fender for a free product, there must be (a lot of) money involved. As with every factory (level) team. Maybe not for exhaust (as they use a lot en ... more »

I know the FMF story. Lets wait a couple rounds but I'am disapointed in the amount of effort the L&MC has shown us thus far. Seems to me that Shorty got a 2011 factory bike from Honda, not a 2012. Still not bad. The team should be happy with a 7 ... more »

I would think Honda has some say in the parts used on the factory bikes. I don't think FMF has de quality Honda would approve, like PC, Yoshi, Akrapovic or Arrow (used in Europe) for pipes. TwoTwo (for example) is not using Braking brake parts any more ... more »

Sick bike, I like the black spokes never seen these on a Factory Honda. Technical details are unreal> Nice job Lars (don't forget the last minute brake snake) I think Chad has something more on his sleeve for A1. His shirt has a lot of room for a ... more »
