Press release said they would be on Honda's but Les Smith just posted up this pic. of him on a KTM? I mean I guess it would make sense with Grant's relationship with KTM but still kind of weird with the video of Les Smith 2012 SX Preparation he was on a Honda

KTM made them a late offer, they should do good. Less can ride anything fast. I was told maybe Futrell also but not 100% sure.

Nice, I thought it was a bit odd too that Langston's team would be on Honda, glad it's now a KTM team.

Why would it be odd for them to be on Honda?

Just saw this tweet from Grant Langston

"Our riders are Les Smith, Taylor Futrell and A.J Cantenzaro. East coast lutes and outdoors."

Sounds like it's a done deal with Futrell

Also tweeted "First day testing with Les and Taylor! "

I saw a post the other day from AJ saying he was getting ready to sell an Ohlins Yamaha.

Now it makes sense.

Yeah, WTF? It's a jersey, can we get a fresh plain jersey before we start sending out PR tweets? I didn't put 2+2 together thinking they got Muscle Milk on board until you pointed it out, and there is a Yamaha logo to boot!?

And you can't spell BAR...

|

The guys who pay for the series and the guys who the team manager answers to are the SAME guys...
Whats so hard to understand about that???

I think Yamaha sold it back to Kent Öhlin some years ago

Les just went out to Cali this past monday to test the KTM and they have not finalized a gear deal yet to my knowledge.
