He's a bad dude, lot of RC similarities. If he is not racing the outdoors hopefully he will be back for next year and beyond.

Added reply in a thread When did the Yamahas stop getting so much hate? 4/16/2014 2:42 PM

He re-signed because JGR convinced him they could get the bike to work better for him. I don't know why Big James wanted him to sign with JGR, that's why I said "I think". With hindsight James would probably say it was a stupid decision. He has already ... more »

Well said. He also was 3 points away from winning the 1992 SX Championship over Stanton.

Added reply in a thread When did the Yamahas stop getting so much hate? 4/16/2014 12:39 PM

He said he was very reluctant to re-sign with Yamaha, but JGR had him convinced they could make enough changes to the bike to make it work for him, he also said his dad was pushing him to sign with JGR, I think because of the Nascar opportunity and how ... more »

That's awesome! Win bonuses are huge. I heard the reason Kawi let RC and JS go was they couldn't afford to keep paying out those huge bonuses. I have no idea if that is true or not, but it could be an issue right now with RV.

Saw him wheelie the entire Daytona SX track in 1979, incredible talent.

There have been numerous top pros say there was major issues with the 2010 - 2013 model when it was pushed to its limits. Chad, Reed said the bike was a turd and was happy when James signed with JGR, Tim Ferry was hired to help set the bike up for James, ... more »

Will he come back? How will he do if he takes it very serious? I'm asking cause I was a fan of his and his dad, and I would like to see him come back and do well. The guy has incredible talent, and its a bummer to see him not achieve what he was capable ... more »

I never said it wasn't.

I sort of agree, its just so difficult to tell for sure without them racing guys like RV, RC and JS every week. I wish Cairoli would come here for a season or two.

Added reply in a thread Beautiful day Seattle, RV1 taking the checkers awesome, 4/14/2014 12:35 PM

Fair enough, its certainly opinion based, after RC being at the top of coarse. There is definitely an argument to be made for RV at #2 though. Meaning I think he could or should be.

Cool to see him get a win in his home town, reminded me of when Larry Ward won up there in 1990?? Congrats to Ryan and his team!
