Those Ten Kate guys are like Yosh Suzuki here. What would make the racing real fun is watching Erion field a Hayes piloted bike against Amerian Honda. Don't the Erion guys have a data/parts deal with Ten Kate? Thought I read that somewhere. Anyway, Hayes deserves the shot. Nothing against Zemke, but he got his factory gig and now has to pull the back-up slot. Hayes had impressive momentum coming off FX and SS championships- give the guy a bike and let him see what he can do.

There you go Yossef, throwing facts and figures around, trying to ruin LR's crabby rant. Sheese, give the man a break, willya?
Right on! I should have crabby ranted about their overwhelming success in AMA racing! Maybe after getting their asses handed to them again this year, I can mention it? Anyone taking bets?? :-D

What's the bet. Gotta be modest- I'm poor. My predictions-

Daytona- Spies 1, Mladin 2, Hodgeson 3
Barber- Mladin 1, Spies 2, Hodgeson 3
Cali- Duhamel 1, Yates 2, Bostrom 3
Infineon- Hodgeson 1, Spies 2, Bostrom 3
Miller- Spies 1, Hacker 2, Hayden 3
Road America- Duhamel 1, Hodgeson 2, Mladin 3
Laguna- Yates 1, Spies 2, Duhamel 3
Mid-Ohio- Spies 1, Hodgeson 2, Mladin 3
VIR- Hodgeson 1, Mladin 2, Hacker 3
Rd Atl- Mladin 1, Spies 2, Hodgeson 3
Laguna- Duhamel 1, DeSalvo 2, Mladin 3

I know some of these are double headers but in at least one of the two races the order will be as picked.

HEY! SOMEONE WRITE THIs DOWN> :)

Real bikers....

The less the merrier! Cheap tix, easy to get a seat, no lines for beer or the head. What's not to like? I'm going to check out some Daytona action when I am down there. Plenty of good seats left!

Anybody coming to Daytona for Bike Week is cordially invited to hang out at my Mom's 120 year old plantation house on the Indian River. It's about 35-40 minutes from the track. Me and my buddy Les are going to the Daytona 200 for sure, maybe be there for some extra days in addition. I'm serious, let me know!

Hey Ken- that true. I started writing articles for a little known rag called Road Rash Atlanta and the editor and I were thinking of hitting the races. He's got his hook up already but I'm SOL. At 41 I don't camp any longer. But if I can roll a sleeping bag and have indoor plumbing I'd be interested.

I'll be coming down there but I think we will be back before the race. I will still check out practice and take a few test rides at the track. Since my wife will be with me, I have to be in my best behavior. :cool:

You're good to go, my Brother! I see the big race is Saturday, 3/8. I can guarantee you a berth on 3/7 and 3/8. If I can get away from work an extra day or two, maybe we can do the 5th and 6th too. But Friday and Saturday, no problemo. If you want to check the location on Mapquest, it's 5320 N. Cocoa Blvd, Cocoa, FL. You can see a great view of Mom's place on Google Earth too.

That's great. I just started helping my buddy with the bike rag a couple of months ago. I do a sort of Fan perspective on the race scene. I don't make any money (yet) but he trades me ad space for my work. One day I may even want to grow up and be a professional at this stuff. It's been real fun so far.

I tried making a living as a boat Captain. It's something I do really well, and love to do I got my CG Master's License, set up shop, spent two years going into debt, and went back to IT. At least I tried! :D

Daytona will be a blast!

Do I look nuts? I know this is hard to believe, but the Knuck is down for repairs for the winter. It is on the lift as we speak getting some needed attention. I rode to daytona for 7 straight years from here, but I'll be flying this time. I do not own a pickup or a trailer, but you two clowns need to show up at my doorstep next year and we ride down there. Loser of the coin flip takes the Knuck! I think that would make one hell of a story for MO next year eh?
