The correct dream. The wrong fix. The destruction of an elite series. The god complex and the unwillingness to say, "I'm sorry I messed up this idea" have turned the AMA series into a joke. Ulrich believes that the AMA series should be affordable to all. Horseshyt! The AMA series should rival WSBK. 20-25 bike grids of the fastest bikes in the world. Can't play on that field then don't bother coming to the party.

How is it possible that for some 60 years we managed to have interesting, competitive racing at Daytona and now it's so damn hard to figure out? I realize there have been times when a particular make (HD) dominated due to shenanigans with the rules, but even then it was popular and fun to watch.

Here's the Klazy Ken plan: a new series that allows only single crankpin V-Twins with a cylinder angle no greater than 75%. Pushrods, dry sumps, and 100 max rear wheel HP. People would flock to it!
