Default Ducati Where?

Just when I started getting a chubby about seeing EBoz hanging around Austin, they pick up and move the works to Road Atlanta. Makes sense for them. Sucks for me. Damn.

Default Worst. Car. Ever.

The only thing more disgraceful than the suits who made the Aztec are the people who buy them. Hey-zeus, that is one gawdawful monstrosity of a "car."

Default The best of the old V-Twins vs inline 4s a match made in KPaul heaven

I feel bad for Eric having to ride the obsolete V-Twin. With the new Honda and superior GSXR-1000, Eric has a tough job..

Default Re: EBoz Signs with Ducati for AMA Superbike

THE BASIC ARE AS FOLLOWS: EBOZ WILL DO FOR DUCATI WHAT NICKY AND MIGUEL DID FOR HONDA WHEN THE RC51 WAS DEVELOPED. THE HONDA WAS CRAP IN ITS FIRST YEAR. A COMPLETE HANDFUL. DON'T GET ME WRONG THE HP WAS THERE BUT THE HANDLING WASN'T. EBOZ WILL SURELY HAVE SOME TOUGH RACES BUT HE WILL FINISH ON THE SEASON PUTTING THE DUCATI IN THIRD FOR CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS AND THAT'S A FAR CRY FROM LAST YEAR. THE '05 SEASON WILL SEE EBOZ AND THE 999 RACING FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP. AFTER DUCATI GETS THE AMA SUPERBIKE CROWN EXPECT EBOZ TO GET THE GP RIDE HE SO DESERVES.

Man, where did you find your crystal ball? So who will finish first and second in 2004? Also, do you really think a third is a far cry from 2003. Who knows where he would have finished the season if he hadn't been injured at Laguna Seca. One more thing......COULD YOU TURN OFF THE CAPS?

Great. Now he's on an underpowered Ducati....at least compared to the Honda and Suzuki.

Default WHERE IS OUR GP?

With all this talk about how Eric (and Nicky... and Colin... and Kenny... and ...) should get to go to the GP's and how great that is, I think it kinda sucks. We won't be able to see them race live unless you cough up big $$ for a european vacation. TV is nice and all but this country needs to participate in world class racing by more than just supplying racers. I'm all for these guys advancing their carrers by I am more in favor of cultivating roadracing as a spectator sport in this country. Carting the best american racers off to Europe is not helping.

Default 999F0?

I wonder if he'll be riding this year's leftovers or if he'll get the latest and greatest? I seem to recall something about '03s, but now that they've got a top notch rider maybe not....



Best of luck to Eric.
