    IMO, if Kevin had a bike with equivalent power and performance he would have won not one but two or more world championships.
    Everyone knew his bike was not at the same level and expected him to fill the gap and he did, many times.
    He actually had a huge influence in the way pilots rode and still ride today. That careless drifting and hanging off the bike to compensate.
    But perhaps what captivated most people was his loyalty to the brand, sportsmanship and kindness. Always smiling.
    When Wayne Rainey got hurt it was a huge blow for Kevin seeing his eternal rival and friend ending his career like that.
    Suzuki and enthusiasts loved him. He was passion.

    Those were the good times.

    Max Biaggi came to mind somehow.

    Schwantz was an amazing rider and maybe he would have won more championships on other bikes. I personally don't think he would have. He seemed to lose concentration and crash too often. But, I was never a fan of his. I was more a Rainey and Lawson guy. Each to their own, though. We'll never know.

    Lucky for Schwantz that Doohan broke his leg in 92 and Rainey broke his back in 93.

    This was absolutely HILARIOUS (except for the poor rider). Our cat likes to watch racing, too, but he doesn't have the, um, INFLUENCE of your cat.

    After watching that gif several times I think the kitteh senses the ensuing high-side and actually tries to save the rider.

    He was devastated when Wayne broke his back and he was a huge player in the recovery of his ethernal rival and best friend.
    A lot more goes on behind the pits than what we see in a race and the turmac.

    I know how Schwantz felt about Rainey's career ender.

    I'm also rather confident that Schwantz won the 93 Championship on a Bradbury.

    Sorry if this has already been covered but I don't see the COTA Motoamerica races on youtube. Just the interviews. Are they no longer putting it out there? Last year it was BeIn sports...

    New TV package this year. beIN is not showing MotoAmerica. The MA Superbike races are shown on FOX Sports 2, I think, and there is a highlight show for supersport and maybe the other classes on NBC SN. For 2019 MotoAmerica has its own paid live streaming package called MotoAmerica Live+ which shows the races live and on demand. I'm guessing there won't be any YouTube channel as that would be very bad for the paid streaming package.

    Guy Martin was at COTA baffling the punters with his unique take on the English language . If you would like to understand him on future broadcasts , this video may help .

    Streaming overload. I can't afford a $100 streaming package for every race series.

    I think the MA package is only $50?

    That being said, kinda annoying to still have commercial breaks (no commercial, just stock photo during that time) and multiple sponsor endorsements during the pre race stuff.

    Also disappointed that still no Dylan Gray hosting.

    If it was Hannah's last year and he was the champion he would have raced, even if he wasn't the champ Hannah would have raced... Miladin is just a douchebag, NO ONE the entire weekend had ANY issue except "mr. I'm too good to race on this track" thats what it was all about.
