Default Re: King Kenny Roberts Comeback?

Great indeed, but maybe not smart! The new Proton is likely a real handfull in the early testing. I wish more info on power management was being published. The reaction times and number of inputs necessary to maintain traction under sliding conditions required for racing makes it look like more like magic than machinery.



The two stroke is a surgical instrument that is actually pretty competetive, but keeping it surgical with all that horsepower won't be easy.

King Kenny did exactly the same thing, for the first test of the KR-3, a few years back. It is his team and his bike, so I'm guessing he feels that he should be the first person to ride one, when there is a new bike.
