They realised that building a solid, reliable, user friendly bike, was more important than who won on Sunday on a factory special. Don’t know about over in the US but the Honda 450 is still the benchmark at club meetings.

Comes down to risk/reward for me. Risk of catching and serious health implications/death vs an unproven vaccine. Pass for me for now. I think a lot of people will think along the same lines, I expect rules will be implemented to ‘persuade’ the masses ... more »

No one knows how he will come back, including JH himself. No amount of will power and positive thinking can take away that subconscious moment of hesitation if it exists (and it may not, all these top guys are super human)

Understandable, I ended up chucking the Airbrakes on the shelf because the roll off system was so poor.

Everts 98 mxdn, Masterclass in the mud, seems his son may have acquired some of that wet weather skill. Lucky enough to witness it first hand.
