He was looking good at Daytona, just a slight limp.

The pic above is from Barber. He was looking fit and healthy.

Well, now the problem is obvious. It's up on the workstand backwards.

(Seriously, I hope they get it running faster, good to see someone "reach for the stars".)

Really nice to see some paint on the Attack! Looking forward to being track side for the race and seeing it run.

The ratbike rattle-can black look they fielded at Leguna was decidedly NOT world class decor... Not bagging on 'em, just hoping Attack can make an impact on the stating grid with some American flair!

Wonder if he'd a made the grid at Leguna if the track records hadn't fallen during qualifying...

Why do people try these things, and where do they get the money to try?

Such foolishness...

After the failure, who is pissed most?

Interesting times, but the hot rod guys seem to always be near. I wonder why that is.

Very excited for the next week. Southwick Motocross National Saturday; Indy Mile next...and then all three classes of MotoGP!

Hard to believe I can get all that live in a week. See you there!

I'm so excited that Yates and Rapp will be at Indy.

Two more slow bikes is just what MotoGP needs.

I really like it when there is a tight race and the leading bikes come upon noob back markers on the final lap.

Because they're gearheads and enjoy working with motorcycles?

I'm as unimpressed with Dorna's CRT project as the next guy, but I can't fault the Stanboli's of the world for having a go.
