What??? Are you saying that the WWF isn't for real? What complete and utter heresy!

I wouldn't expect even the Japs to be able to pick winners. It's possible even Rossi gets clipped by Biagi and high sides into the hospital. I'm just suggesting that each manufacturer is allowed to excel to their potential in a particular racing series. It would make perfect sense from the stand point of marketing. Also, don't forget about those so-called merger projects a couple years ago where, what was it, Kawasaki and Suzuki provided each other with certain types of dirt bikes. Oh, and remember when Kawasaki was going to fold a number of years ago and there would be only the Big 3? They made a miraculous comeback.

I'd like to see Yamaha run in Superbike. But if they won't, then I'd like to see Mat get on a Superstock GSXR1000 to make sure Yamaha doesn't collect a Superstock title with their fancy shmanshy "LE". At least the Superstocks run slicks so the tires won't be a big change from Superbike. C'mon Mat, you'd like to mix it up with Eric wouldn't you?

"doesn't have a bike to develop in time for the '06 season." What kind of lame excuse is that? That LE should be so good out of the box that any Graves rider would at least beat all the privateers. All they have to do is pull off the lights and get the number plates on it.

Default AMA are you listening

No Superbike effort. Too bad. Seems like WSB has their act together and the AMA doesn't.

The solution
[*]Have only two classes Superbike (1000cc) and Supersport. (600cc).
[*]Have 4 heat races (2 for each class) on Saturday
[*]Limit races to 20 bikes, to reduce back markers
[*]4 races on Sunday (2 for each class)

Superbike was in a way, the least exciting of all the classes. There's more competition and more fun (to watch) in the others. Are you sure you watch them all?
