Monster is unifying their efforts. In Europe they support yamaha. In the US it is Kawi. Next year the support will be all blue. Example: Monster Energy Factory Yamaha.

Monster is leaving Kawi. I think we will see Monster Yamaha just like in Europe. Which will affect Mitch and factory Kawi big time. Will be interesting to see how they handle it.

It's a bunch of crap when people say it handles poorly. Ride like normal and put your balls on the tank and the thing handles great. For those who say it's bad, they generally make this comment coming from another bike. It doesn't handle the same way ... more »

Funny, haven't seen Carey since. Yet Coy is at every race.

Added reply in a thread Kelly Lumgair Back to KTM 7/21/2015 4:23 PM

I still think the yamaha would be a perfect suit for kenny. Tons of torque and he can kid that thing around and it will be stable as shit. But with red bull as a personal sponsor, highly unlikely. Seems as though RCH is having real issues, and ones that ... more »

No, they used to. Now when the bike is in neutral it automatically kicks to the dummy ignition map. It is hysterical to hear geico Hondas rev to the moon on the track, and at tech they sound like blubbering weekend warriors with tight valves.

Seems like an all blue lineup. I'm digging it!

Added reply in a thread Transworld and Reed 7/2/2015 10:31 AM

Every rider gets photos taken on new equipment, gear etc before the contract is up. It is the timing of the two that dictate this, followed by a gentlemans agreement to not release the photos until a specified date. This is why cudby usually gets these ... more »

Also, it seems that Buddy Antinez is one exceptional riding coach. A few riders have worked with him and they have done better because of it.

Added reply in a thread Bam bam 6/28/2015 7:22 AM

Exactly what he needed. This should spark his attitude again and push him back to the front. The guy has heart and works hard. Good on JGR, Yamaha, and Barcia.

Added reply in a thread Reed to RCH ? 6/24/2015 8:39 AM

Then again, bikes can change at that level. Reed on blue next year is exciting. Still bummed about two two closing though. Was the perfect team and best atmosphere. Hopefully this shows other teams and even factory efforts that while it is a serious ... more »

Undertaking, congrats smart ass vital member. You continue to strive for the norm around here.

Correct them then.

Reedy said that fly 360 camera deal was worth half mill, and that it enabled him to race the other half of outdoors with the extra sponsorship money. With him and JG33 being hurt, two two will not go to the races. GuyB stated JG under the factory Kawi ... more »

Added reply in a thread Byrner26 6/23/2015 8:42 AM

No, two two doesn't have the funding to race the rest of the nationals unless a skeleton crew went for JG. Who more than likely will fill in under factory Kawi.

Why?

Chad has fun with the media and how people respond. I would do the same if I were in his position. Being direct does not take away the Hoosiers on this site who act ignorant just because they can get away with it. Cryptic etc would be James stewart, ... more »

No shit, what's more dramatic the guy just talking his mind and having fun on social media at times, or the guys complaining like little high school girls about how another man handles himself. Put things in perspective and there are some real winners ... more »

I agree, I think it's funny when someone says light like a Suzuki. It's the heaviest bike out there. It feels decent under you though. I went from a 09 rmz450, to a 12 honda, to a 14 yzf. The honda feels light and nimble, but so does the yamaha(just ... more »

The shrouds can be changed with the cycra powerflow kit. Reduces the width as well as the teams already reduce the radiators by 10mm. This puts it on par with other bikes. That is the only large feeling of the bike. It feels light, flickable, and quick ... more »
