That's a solid suggestion, no doubt. But I have this bizzare desire to try to keep the bike as close to original as possible. I did concede on the points and get a Crane ignition, and replaced the Kehnin carb with S&S. Those were "had to dos" to make the bike rideable day to day.

I prefer square with chamfered corners.

I still love to watch the races, live and on the tube, even if ama seems a little one sided right now. Maybe the rules will allow for some more competition next year. The Yosh team just seems to have it dialed for superbike. But fx and supersport are still fun, and superstock might get there. what i believe is that the riders are very skilled, the ama has to pick up its game or leave it to someone else. or maybe motorcycle racing is just not going to catch on here. i have heard good things about miller but i awlays wondered why they needed airfence for a brand new facility.

Maybe I should have mentioned that the only reason I'd be reluctant to go again was that it cost me $60 for the one day after all the ticket downloading fees were done. I won't spend that much again for only a couple of races worth watching. The park itself is quite nice.

That doesn't mean that I'm not highly impressed with the way those guys can bring those bikes down from 175mph so quickly and take that turn 1.

I guess you weren't impressed enough to pay another 60 bucks!

How to say this? I'm glad I went. I just won't bother again unless they improve the series. Go back to 750s. Encourage V-twin and triple participation.

I wonder why the AMA hasn't included 675 triples in the mix like they do in Europe. Maybe because the Big4 don't want to be humiliated.

Yeah i think you're right on all counts. And i agree that ticket prices seem way high for the product you receive. infineon was 48 bucks a day i think for general admission.
thi year we decided not to fight the heat and the crowds of laguna but then i learned i have to be working down there at the time. so instead of buying tickets months ahead of time i'm looking at ebay and other sites. judakowa batman! i guess i forgot it costs 2 people 300 bucks just to get in the door and wander through the pits. then try to wedge myself into a glimpse of the corkscrew. it costs a grand to be able to watch the whole race on tv while you watch the bikes a few seconds out of every 90. did i mention being thirsty? at least you can see a lot of the race from more than one spot at infineon.
if i compare that to a weekend series for the mariners, i could get some pretty decent seats. and lotso beer which makes it seem almost as good as motorcycle racing. and the ichiroll.
Still i watch and root and hope things get better.
agreed on the trumpets and the 750s. bring on a new zx7rr. in that green they run in motogp.
