“We’re taking things to the next level by bringing all of these parts to privateers so they can have the same bike Ben Bostrom rode to the Supersport championship,” says Chuck Graves, company president and team owner.

Just for the record, I have the same set of golf clubs that Tiger Woods used to win the Masters. Watch for my name on the leader board for next year, but please don't hold your breath while doing so.

So hatful and negetive, your reputation preceeds you. Beside's you have to beable to actually use those Tiger Woods club's brother not just own a set, like all your friends located at this Burger Barn you seem to constantly day dream about.

Too bad you got to many ticket's on your Busa I could have showed you how to use that aswell, it will turn you know?

LR, you must hate change. I know I have hammered and hammered that this DMG/AMA thing will be better than what we've been dealing with in the past. DMG's idea of parts availability is precisely what Graves is doing now. If you build it then sell it- is not a bad concept. Not everyone will pay to play, but at least they'll have the opportunity. You'll find Attack doing this for Kawi, Yosh/Jordan for Suz, Erion already sells many parts and Ducati sells all of their Corse parts already it should be a good thing. Now guys like Ryan Elleby can actually race for the lead- if he's willing to pay to play. The kid has skills but runs a privateer effort on a string. With help from DMG to find sponsorship- like Grand Am does for their teams- and the availability of those parts it's possible for the "little" guy to actually have a consistant shot at the podium.
We have to face the fact that WSBK types of budgets can't work in an all American series. Change is good and the new Superbike American style will be good too. Everybody will have a chance at making more money and the racing will be better because the playing field was leveled- to a degree.

You're absolutely right, but it's so much fun to get MOKE's panties in a wad.

Baahaa, don't flatter yourself, apparently your not as intellegent as you think you are. You just end up sounding dumb. Just a shame we can't talk face to face at "your" Burger Barn, I suspect you'd be alot more formal in person, instead of letting your mouth run endlessly like a hole that can't stop spewing diarrhea.
