Good point. I think Austrailia is about the size of Canada in population roughly 1/10 the size of the US.

Default ZX-636

Did Tommy Hadden walk away with that with that race or what. Before they red flaged the race Tommy was almost ahead by the whole front straight.



I wonder how well the 636 will sell to the young kids that can't wait, and have to have it now!.

So true about the bikes the top guys ride in supersport and superstock not being much like the ones you buy off the showroom floor. The factory teams put a lot of work into into these "stock" bikes, so if you are looking to buy a new bike, don't pay too much attention to AMA pro racing results, if you want to buy a bike based only on racetrack performence, check out some of the club races and see what does well there. Talk to the riders too.

Fair enough... I forgot about Gobert. Wonder why he's changed his addy? I would have thought that Mladin would have more cause to switch over to a US address.

That's a very fair point, and I've often wonderedv why myself.

However, it may just be that he's happy with his life and surroundings over there. All my Aussie mates are very "work to live" instead of "live ot work" oriented. Who knows.

Canada's bigger than the USA, and Aus. is a fair bit smaller than both.

But aside from that fact, they do have a lot of great riders, a costal population, and the year-round good weather to help them along.

Easy to get track time for the average joe, too.

No. Just read magazines! That's how you figure out all the best. Just read and re-read the comparos until you discover the best. Of course, you don't have time left to actually ride, but what the hay.......
