Picked up bike off showroom on Tuesday, rode the husky 3 times before today. Stock suspension and motor. Only had pipe and header. Found a mechanic and headed out to prove himself. And he delivered big time. Times were fast, hopefully a fill in ride for next weekend.

That is so cool. It would be awesome if he got a ride. Even though I don't see his results improving THAT much more. He'd still probably finish 8th-12th every weekend.

It would be cool if he got a ride - but who has openings? Tickles ride?? Wilson's?? Any others?

After the top 10 the 450 class is weak.

Would be good to see him on the open factory husky. Would whatever he was fired for/accused of/caught using keep him from said ride or equivalent? Details on his situation have been scarce, but he’s got some talent and speed.

Kawasaki seems to have a plan, expect Bowers on that bike as soon as possible...

Lets not get giddy.. its not a strong field , loads of factory guys missing, plus loads of good privateers with no deals for outdoors, and a load of career 250 racers who should be on a 450 already .

On the flip side , he can only race who is there, and he did it well, with Wilson's bike sitting there doing nothing, it would be fitting to sit a guy on it who has done a 'Deano' , sorted his own stuff , and put it behind the gate.

I thought he was just going to test the 2019 for them? Not sure where he'll stack up outdoors but Bowers being out there is a good thing so can't complain.

The lack of information on Taft’s departure from Rock River is a head scratcher wassat

So I'm guessing Grant is out for more then expected ?

They parted ways, it's pretty simple. They didn't believe in him, and wanted to put resources somewhere else. How did his replacement finish anyways?
