You kind of are dumping on him. In 1976, Hannah was 125 national champion. In 1977 he was 250 supercross champion.

In 1977, no motocross bike had a single shock rear suspension except the 1977 YZ250. In ‘78 it got a new motor and frame too.

Hannah was the best rider on the best stock bike.

It is hard to understand what you are saying but, Barcia has outperformed Cooper Webb. Musquin has outperformed Cooper Webb. Plessenger has outperformed Cooper Webb. Absent those guys, Webb enjoys a podium finish.

Except Barcia is out, Musquin is out, Plessenger is hurt. Add in those three and there is your underperforming Webb finish.

There are lots of champions (125-500) but you just hit the nail on the head. If that’s what it takes to be champion, selfishly in love with me, motorcycles, and money, I’m glad that I’m out.

No, it means he has nothing else going on in his life so he has committed to this instead. That’s okay although it does imply a certain level of selfishness.

Several years ago before a deployment to Afghanistan from Fort Bragg, I called ADT to install a system. I’m fairly skilled in physical security and site defensive plans so I drew up my own plan by room, by window, by anticipated treat, by vulnerability. ... more »

Except it has developed Triumph’s racing experience and further refined the 765. 600cc may be dead but Triumph hasn’t run a 600cc motor in almost 20 years (600 to 650 to 675). Also, they are European and while the market shrunk, there was room for Triumph. ... more »

Cannondale had an awesome product, elements are still around today. I was really hoping for a US manufacturer and totally disappointed they messed it up at the end.

It should be forest green: 955i CE.

This is certainly a tremendous effort with high risk for Triumph. Producing a complete and competitive package, in my opinion is years away. I hope Triumph is committed to this. Just look at what it took to produce a competive sport bike (and consider ... more »

Because even in the crappiest countries, every moped rider can emulate VR46. Even though MOTOGP is small compared to F1, it is massive compared to motocross/ supercross and Dorna makes more than $2.50 a race.
