Who should Kawi pick to ride RV's bike Outdoors? Sounds like they are both testing out RV's bike.

Langston my vote!

Langston if he's up to speed. Wey's a good rider, Grant's a great rider with multiple titles.

Langston easily.

Langston, hands down.

Wey and Langston have both been there and done that. I would like to see them give the ride to someone new to the OEM game.

Remember how well Sean Hamblin did when he was given that chance?

Thats almost like asking if you'd take Jlaw or RV. Langston has a chance to win the title. Wey is a great rider but not the same as GL

Honetly,

I love Grant's hard charging style, but you are either nostalgic, or smoking crack if you think that Grant Langston has a chance of winning the 450 outdoor title.

He won it 2 years ago!!..... How can he be washed up now?? RV out, and Stewart probably part time.... Reed, Dungey, Alessi and Grant are the only ones that can hang with Langston.

I'm rooting for the Michigan Mafia... Nick brings speed and consistency to the kawi race effort. Plus, Wey is a sharp dude and obviously knows how to rep monster kawi well. Langston is a great guy, but Nyk is Wey cooler.

I think Langston is gonna shut alot of people up this year, from what i have heard he is hauling ass.

Was it not Langston who passed Bubba at Southwick!!!! He has so much heart and the dude is Fuaaaast!!! How many titles does the dude have? world champion, east, west and outdoors 250 and 450 outdoors, ...and Wey, Zero titles, nice guy, solid top 8 or so.
Decision? what decision?

Anyone who counts out Langston is crazy. Who's gonna beat him? There are a few who could but each are just as questionable. Reed seems off pace this year. Millsaps too inconsistent. Grant just coming off injury and has never been a title contender. Alessi too much drama to last a full season without imploding. Short has a real shot if healthy enough but not Langston's speed. Dungey, also has a shot but he seems to have lost his edge the last few weeks and the nationals will be tougher, will he be able to handle it? I hope GL takes a factory KTM or even the Kawi and whoops some ass!

Honestly, Jim, if contender is the criterion, then I can't think of anyone without that quality of ride who is more of a contender. He's got a better chance IMO than other availabe riders.

I don't know if he still has it in him to win over Reed, Alessi, Stewart or Dungey at this point, but he has proven himself and there's no tougher guy still racing.

And, as for me, as much as he's gone through, as tough as he's been as a rider, the whole not being able to defend his title deal, there's a real appeal to seeing him get another quality crack at it.

Ya know, a title shot with everyone in cept RV & JS is far fetched but if anyone can do it The Zooloo warrior would be the guy I pick based on who's available. The guy knows how to win titles. Fitness and gumption are gonna be the deciding factor in just how well he does in the end.

I honestly couldn't say, but I would like to see a new guy get a shot at have a good support team behind him.

I wasn't dogging you at all there, just would rather have people like you say it as they honestly feel it is than pile on or fall in line behind the popular answer.

Now, to honestly try and answer your question, I too have been a fan of Langston since before it was the "cool thing to do", and he probably wouldn't be one of my top two choices if all the other contenders that are supposed to race show up and remain healthy.

Having said that, I do believe that he can beat anybody out there on any given day if the circumstances go his way, but I don't think that will happen enough times for him to take the title unless several others experience problems.wink

It would be a bit silly for Kawi to pick Wey as he's already riding a green bike adn will do just as good on his regular bike(judging from SX)


You give the ride to Langston and you get one other fast guy on a Kawi.

Plus it's outdoor and yes I think Langston can run up front. He was really fast at Daytona before his crash.

|

If you never crash, you don't try hard enough!!

5/4/2010 6:38 PM

If Grants knee problems were'nt in question, would this even be a valid question?

How did the supercross season work out for him?
I know he ended up getting hurt, but he struggled to make mains.

The guy is a warrior, and I wish him nothing but the best. But IMO it's not realistic to think that GL will win the outdoor.

Injuries, illness and time play a big factor when racing at this level.

Without a doubt, Grant Langston.

The guy's a much better investment for Kawasaki than Wey. He's very corporate, has a huge fan base, is extremely articulate and is almost guranteed to be on the podium multiple times over the summer. Also has a legitimate shot at the title.I like Nick Wey, but GL is the obvious choice.
