But the discussion was started about the bike and Webb's suitability outdoors

Has he though? The series leaders are Ferrandis (a rookie), 2-time champion Roczen (who didn't race in 2020), Plessinger who had never raced a full season of Mx, and Sexton who Marv has never really raced.

I imagine the decline in use of both 2-strokes and leaded fuels didn't help their involvement in the sport.

I could see where they could have had a production pipeline that pushed previous model parts and tooling to the cheaper Gas Gas, but given their production shortages for 20/21, that probably wouldn't be a workable business model for this cycle.

...And looks like a workable hand hold.

Sure. I agree that physical work can be extremely difficult, maybe even too grueling for pro athletes. That's not the issue. The issue is that for professional athletes showing up just a few percentage points off of your best at your specialty can lose ... more »

If it's a '20, in addition to whatever dealer discount they are offering, Suzuki will give you $1000 rebate and the wifi tuner.

Statistically, the vast majority of people. That said, I wouldn't compare the performance requirements of grinding away at even a manual day job, to competing at a professional level in an endurance sport.

Suzuki is still offering their $500 rebate on RMZ250s ($1000 if you can find a previous model year), so it is more like $1000 to 1500 cheaper than other Japanese bikes at retail.

Wasn't discussing his general decline the last two seasons, just the difference between Moto 1 and Moto 2 at Mount Morris

And, with regard to the thread, Tomac wasn't riding for HRC.

I think all outlets communicated that it was a pretty damn good bike platform that came to them with some confounding factory set up.

You're cherry picking one moto out of six, when in all five other motos Dylan's fast lap was "considerably faster" of the two by far.

Added reply in a thread How high are the chances of Ferrandis to win it ? 6/21/2021 12:41 PM

I've been watching Ferrandis a bit this season, and I couldn't help but notice that Dylan is pretty good at riding a dirt bike. I believe this will aid his chances of a championship.

The difference was the start. Didn't have to work past a lot of riders. He gets too comfortable at following pace.

Doesn't that confirm what I just said? I said: "It is not a KTM-built engine. It is Morini Franco."

Not in Pennsylvania. Jett's of consenting age in Mount Morris.

Added reply in a thread KTM 50cc engine cut out while I was on a big ride 6/21/2021 8:56 AM

And it's not a KTM built engine. It is Morini Franco. That said, these are used in some mopeds, so application-wise it may not be that far off.
