Hard to believe its a real 00001 Frame number. back in the day the first few bikes off the assemble line were considered crusher bikes or pre-production and Honda was not allowed to sell them to the public. I remember riding some lower number bikes as ... more »

That is why I said if he got a deal - maybe he can flip them and still be in the black - I think he thought out of the box and so far its a win win, especially if Chap sold him bikes at cost or however it worked out on paper, Not a new concept, just ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2020 450 Shootouts 8/13/2019 6:43 PM

I wonder if Chap gave ML a good deal on the bikes since he has a promo deal with them already? Maybe Chap loaned or sponsored him with the $ to buy the bikes? I wish I had enough coin to purchased every bike in the fleet. Even at cost, 6 bikes is probably ... more »

Added reply in a thread Can the powers at be do anything to reduce injury? 4/3/2019 10:31 AM

The 1982 RM125 was so popular Suzuki did s second production run and in the end shot themselves in the foot. Yes his was one of the best 125s in the day but they did not have enough customers. The were still stacked up in 1983 and Suzuki did a crazy

Added reply in a thread New Triple Crown Format for 2020? 2/25/2019 2:49 PM

The idea of a B main/LCQ is to keep the privateer race pool going. If privateers never get the chance to race the night show, many won't even bother racing at all and then it might be hard to keep the field full and solid. For some privateers making ... more »

Added reply in a thread Feld may finally have to pay the racers 2/4/2019 10:19 PM

I could be wrong but I believe the AMA still owns the rights to super cross and they contract with Feld to run the series. I think the AMA could go with another promoter when the FELD contract is up - but I doubt this matter is about that arrangement, ... more »
