Re: Won't matter. Honda, Yamaha will win in the end.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say all the protesting and quitting various AMA boards, etc.. is going to be all for nothing.
Buell may have been given a very nice hand-out with the rules but it sounds like this is going to be the first race for the XBRR. Brand new bikes & riders who haven't raced them before don't often win their first race unless they are seriously outclassing everyone else.
Daytona may be a huge track which would favor massive horsepower but all it takes is for the Buell to have one issue holding speed on the banking due to tires, suspension, setup, etc.. and that's it, no more chance for a win. Problems that might be sorted out by the middle of the season but could definitely be a factor at the 200.
