That’s kinda interesting! When I see what some folks have to say about the different brands versus who ends up in the 22 man field and what brand they’re on....it’s almost surprising.

Let’s face it: they’re all good race bikes. But, there sure are a lot of different teams and riders having success on bikes that don’t get much love from a lot of us.

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

How do the contingencies line up?

I think most everyone here, knows your riding a RM z and spruiking its charms.
And thats fine.
Its not bad bike.
It has sat at the bottom of every shoot out (?)
And as mxa said,.there is more than likely a better bike for most people.

Not that im in the market atm, but i wouldnt buy one unless the price was really really good..

People that make consumer decisions because of professionals endorsing certain products or brands are living in a bubble. It's almost a bit sad.

Well according to Keefer's research, I don't understand why every privateer isn't riding a Kawasuki. Like then or not that's a huge difference in funds. Maybe there are some catches to that Keefer didn't point out but doesn't seem that way. Good on Kawi for stepping up for the little people.

Suzuki is paying a lot of money in local and x-country series.

I realized that, and that is true for most adults.
i was pointing out a reason why they might be paying for stars of the sport.

(Couple of posts here i like but no like button means endless quoting or new posts, kinda annoying)

Aren’t there a lot of Kawasaki’s that didn’t make the night program?

Suzuki is certainly being smart right now, the future sales will tell if it’s worth the investment.
