You mean the moon landing they staged at Meteor Crater in the New Mexico desert? *Those* crazy Americans with the open checkbook? You Buell riders are insane. Next you'll be telling us the Earth is round or singles and twins are better for the street or some other such nonsense. Moon landing indeed!
How much of all this is the rider? What is the likelihood that Buell would have gone faster/finished better with DiSalvo or Gobert onboard?
Dave Estok is great and all, but his skill level (while much higher than my own) is essentaily that of a very very good WERA/CCS racer. Pascal Picotte blew. He finally got a non-Harley ride, and couldn't convert.
I'll give them this: there were no mechanical DNFs.
so young so angry. Damn that rap music. Be fun to see response when Buell gets on the box. Budget wise I know all the big Japanese teams tested new track in Utah, wonder if Buell was there? I doubt it...
with a Hacking or T. Hayden on there, who knows? they cost money. Y Harley will not part with a little is the greatest mystery, tho if Buell gets close a couple times maybe ???
Yep, I did see that. Unfortunate, and yes I do wonder if that fellow would have gained a few more spots, perhaps even a spot in the winners circle?
Reading between the lines of your post I think I'm being accused of being too critical? Perhaps your right. Thinking about it, I guess I'm still mad and Eric and company for getting my hopes up for the 200, then proceeding to lose badly. What really got me cranked up was the fact that it was mechanical failures that did it to us.
We are capable of soooo much more! And, you're correct, making it back to 7th after a stop and go penalty is good racing. I really want to see Buell keep after this until winning is a normal thing. WE CAN DO IT!
