I think it's pretty cool that RV has made his way over to the Testing/ Factory side of thing's to help out with. I'm sure he has a ton to offer to Factory Yamaha and KYB.

YAMAHA, Get Travis Preston, Andrew Short and Ryan Villopoto together on some test days!

Remember so many Vitards posting about how we would never see Ryan in the sport again after he retired. it’s good to see him still motoing

Great to see Ryan enjoying himself these days. You could tell he was over racing seriously toward the end. The whole GP thing was bizarre at best and I almost wonder if he didn't crash himself out on purpose.

So could RV2 keep up with Barcia the other day at Pala?

What a ridiculous statement. Obviously he quit so he could work on his biceps.

I think he just meant it seemed like RV did not really want to be there.

Maybe lol but it's not like RV is going to be super stoked to keep pace outdoors with a 5th-10th place guy.

Surely someone at the Stop Watch Nationals was keeping tabs on him? Would be cool to know how he stacks up for a couple of heaters.

Lol Webb finished 4th or better in half his races last year and won a race. Try again, cool guy.

Back to the original topic, hopefully this helps Yamaha. I’m tired of people blaming the bike and whatever the case is for real, I want them to get it all together and have success. Based on rumblings from pulpmx it sounds like “Team” Yamaha could use some tweaks in personnel or the way they operate to get where Team Ktm is now.

5 by my count. 6 is half of 12. Those are O/A's. Should we go by Moto? Does it matter? What about in 2018? 17? How far back do you need to go? lol cool 6th Overall in the standings in 2019. RV couldn't care less if he's Webbs speed.

I know why he’s testing......because they are paying him to test!

That gives average 8 place guy. If you leave worst and best away its 4.75 so 5th place guy sounds about right?

RV, fill in rider if required.
Does he still hold an AMA license, what number
will he run, 151?

What I'm hearing here is, they need a DeCoster like god to step in and take over?

Remember Villopoto is over 30 now and has been retired for 6 years.

I was able to watch him at fox with the current guys and he still has the speed and technique to be sure, but I don't think he ever wants to be in race shape ever again, too much sacrifice.
