Just make the gap at the end big enough, so guys aren't trying so hard to scrub the biggest hump.

The problem is that people can't acknowledge when their party screws up, or is being totally asinine. Like for instance, I'm a democrat because I don't believe in the rich getting richer at the expense of millions and millions of the rest of us. but ... more »

Daniel Blair and Jason Weigant would be the best possible announcers from the current pool of Talent, IMO. D.B. seems a little arrogant at times, but his delivery is on point and he doesn't pander to the non existent "new viewer" 24/7 like Ralph. RC ... more »

"Nothing really to show for it" Sounds like Yamaha with Langston (450 Motocross) and Heath Voss (Obscure World Supercross title) the only guys to win a title on the bike. And nobody really remembers those championships. The 450 Honda won EVERYTHING at ... more »

I'm talking wins period, Supercross or outdoors. I doubt in all the years they've been racing it, that Yamaha has 24 wins in the US on the 450. The fact is, no rider has ever been dominant on the YZ450 in the US. Roczen and RC were dominant on the Suzuki, ... more »

RC's perfect season outdoors in 2004, on the CRF 450 is probably more wins than the YZF has ever had in the US.

It's the bike (his, not the stock one). If Barcia wasn't good enough, he wouldn't have won ANY races on the bike. Some tracks he looks like he's struggling to stay on the bike lap after lap.

2 hours run-time between rebuilds, Versus 50 hours between rebuilds. Optimizing air/fuel stream into the motor with some sacrifices to chassis design has worked well for Yamaha in the 250 class, but their 450 effort has been S.O.L. presumably for the ... more »

Totally different bikes. The Zook carves inside lines, and is busier at high speeds, also the frame is more rigid. The Honda needs a little more effort in tight corners, but it's more stable. The Honda revs out better too, so it can be a lot faster depending ... more »

Possibly, but what caused the fork lug to break in the first place? I doubt it was a random parts failure. These guys case huge jumps, crash onto concrete, overjump everything in sight, and how often does something like this happen?

Added reply in a thread Barcia? 6/11/2020 9:01 PM

I think he's right though. There's also damage on the hub close to the axle. That damage on the hub probably happened whenever the fork lug got damaged.

Honda should throw some Money at Ferrandis, IMO. Not the best starter, but he's gritty and seals the deal. Sexton is gonna be held back by small bobbles, like AC9, IMO.

@mb60, Most of those guys are riding 450, because the teams they ride for don't have the budget to field a competitive 250.

Added reply in a thread Did Jeremy Martin really go home and not racing anymore SX 6/6/2020 2:22 PM

I'm not for a second suggesting that they do this, but a salary cap for 250 riders would get rid of the point-out loophole.

Or maybe slow down the three teams (PC Kawi, Yamaha, Geico Honda) that have won the vast majority of titles since 2004. Their suspension budget would still probably be more than the smaller teams' whole operations. And obviously, results are mostly about ... more »
