TYPICAL!

Maybe they could put limits on what everyone can spend for a season. We'll see how Suzuki and Mladin like that.

I think they should dig up Soichiro, shock him back to life, put him in the ring with Erik Buell and Kawasaki (that guy that's the president of Suzuki), and they can then have Nerd Slappy-fights 'til the Winner is announced.........

Hardly a gatling gun. More of a modestly hot-rodded streetbike that will be short a couple-dozen ponies to its competitors and won't be a risk for podium finishes.

That said, I have greater sympathy for those who have an issue with the bike's homologation process. But, still, this "new" bike is really a two-year-old streetbike with some motor work and a chain-drive conversion. I'm glad to have Buell in the class, and I look forward to a more capable 1200cc production bike that must surely be in the works.

For chrissakes, it's:

AMA (American Motorcyclist Association) Pro Racing American Superbike class.


It's not the Axis Superbike class now is it? The Japanese ought to be grateful we're lettin race anything at all. Not to mention the Italians.

Funny, I don't remember all this handwringing when Suzuki and Mladin got caught redhanded cheating.

Yeah where all shaking in our boots. I dont mind Harley competing but they have always changed the rules just to be an underdog. My problem stems from them (Harley) not taking the chip off their shoulder and just building something thats competitive. Building it themselves not hiring the job out to someone else. Its not like they dont have the resorces and money,...well maybe not now?
