    Thank you.
    Living in Italy doesn't help. Major sports here are soccer, soccer and soccer.

    Those '04 Husky's built in the Agusta factory were bullet proof! The sealant issue among other nuances on the early Ape's killed the sales a few years later. I remember the deals on crate bikes, crazy. My '10 had been tuned by Noland so I took the plunge.

    True.
    Mine's a '04 too, stock plastics were the black 100 years anniversary. Never had an issue in 30000km of commuting, day travels and some track days.

    In the U.S. this year it was whining about no stick and ball sports, until most all organizations figured out how to deal with the pandemic, either working to avoid it or working to get around the regulations.

    This 26 minute video is a recap of the final 3 races at Busca in S1GP and shows the crazy fast track with no dirt, but some banked pavement corners...

    The battle up front made the championship points really tight, 1 point gave Thomas Charerye his 8th title ! Epic ending to 2020 :thumb

    Chris Fillmore posted some details on Facebook about the AMA Supermoto races in Tucson November 7-8. Streaming will be available via Spotnetwork.TV I don't know if the streaming is free or not. I will post more info as I find it.

    What a shame they can't seem to set up and run a series that can get the racing distributed around the country in a better way. Might actually see the racing grow in popularity, maybe even help sell some bikes.

    I remember Fillmore in the race in Columbus Ohio in 2003, like 16 or 17 years old. I think, if I remember right, he slid out and high sided coming onto the pavement after the dirt portion.
