    Excited to say I'll be back with Latus Motors Racing for next season on a Triumph! George Latus just made the announcement on Pit Pass Radio. Thanks to George and the team for a great opportunity to represent them and the Triumph brand in 2012!

    That, or Triumph is paying at least a portion of the bill.

    He rode the triumph in the last race of the year.. that I might add was way to short.. saying they were going to campaign it.. old news kinda but necessary I guess for sponsors..

    So, is DMG gonna shed the series or keep driving it into the ground is what I want to know...

    All I can say is I wish MotoGP provided racing that was half as exciting (the racing, not the drummed-up drama about the riders).

    I can't speak for the other venues, but based on the fans at the NJ round, the series looked far from being driven into the ground.


    (ok, Shrineclown? :lol3)

    I dont think it was the bike as much as it was the fact that he was a 3rd tier bike of 3 in WSS. :lol3

    Thank you!

    It only needs support from fans who actually went to or watched the races. I never cease to be amazed by the naysayers who have done neither. The racing is as good as it has ever been, if not better. Next time they are near you, go, you won't be disappointed.

    On the promotional side, they are going to be as good as the racing with M1 doing the hard work now.

    I'm with WPBarlow, the euro's will be watching AMA races soon before they watch the GP feeds. It is that good. You just never know who is going to come out on top. And the battle is for the entire event.

    Summation: Yamaha has added a Superbike seat for Herrin and has hired all the most promising 600 riders while Yosh Suzuki is selling one of its seats to the rich guy who probably won't crash too much, and the rest, well . . .

    Tommy probably should be considering a change in direction. Ritchie Morris certainly found one. There is a lesson there somewhere...

    On Gerloff, he was riding a full Graves R6 at NJMP and he talked about his future with Yamaha with the race announcer. Meanwhile, CB is clearly the best new talent out there. Who better to represent the Tuning Fork company in AMA Pro Sportbike. He's fun to watch too!

    +1 on Hayden to Jordan to replace Bostrom. Though a move to BMW could make sense. As would Bostrom to BMW-- it's a good PR fit for both sides. There should be seats available at Kawasaki, Aprilia, and, dare we hope, Honda.


    And it would be neat to see Eslick on the EBR bike.

    F that Ray Blank. Hey Ray, if you're reading this you can come by and suck a fart out of my ass anytime :lol3. F you, and F Honda, I hope your sales crater and your company supplied commuter vehicle becomes an 80cc Helix. With a frayed throttle cable. A torn seat. And two dented rims shod with Ching-Shin tires.

    I should add the above is said with all due respect :evil

    With that said, Ray Blank will not come back unless he can be in charge. That is one thing I guess we can thank RE for, the loss of Ray Blank. Any news on Blank's head rolling anytime soon? I imagine those Goldwing sales keep him safe............. Grrrrrrrrrr.
