Great news, but I'm still disappointed - I wanna see Eric race with Mat, you know, the whole good/evil thing...



Seriously, if Yahama wants to be a real competitor, they'll put at least a couple of riders in Superbike. That's still the premier class. It's only boring because it only had two riders in it last year. And this excuse about the new R1 not being ready doesn't fly with me - they've got 4 full months to develop the thing before Daytona. They've got just as much time a Suzuki and Ducati. (and Honda and Kawasaki - c'mon, get with it, guys!)



An Mat! Don't get me started! (too late) Just what kind of ***** wins 6 championships in a minor league and stays put? I've got a HELL of a lot more respect for Nicky when he gets out there with the big boys and stands on the box.



And AMA roadracing is hereby exposed for what it is - marketing fodder. Think about it - they don't have particularly competitive racing, but they do have enough classes for every Japanese make to get a title every year. I'm convinced they do it on purpose. FX- what the hell is that? Just make sure there's one class that the best riders gravitate to - all others are support classes, a farm system if you will - and I'll shut up.

I am quite sure that there will be some interest in running the superstock bike in superbike but there is a horsepower difference that Yamaha will not be able to overcome. The WSB Yamaha has NO connection with Yamaha USA so just like Honda USA had to develop a bike from scratch Yamaha will do the same. As much as I hate it, Yamaha is doing the right thing. They will come out fighting for '07 and ask for patients for '06.

It is a shame and also a lack of respect for the racing fan and the racing community. I for one will not be buying any of Yamaha's products. All the excuses made about the factory support crap are that, crap. The WSB team is a product of Yamaha of Italy without factory help, did anybody see the great results that Nitro Nori had? They kick a$$.

As far as Chuck Graves running a factory team, forget it, scientology does not go that far!
