I just went to the AMA website just to double check the requirements for the Daytona Superbike series cause I thought I might have been confused, and this is what I found:
Eligible Bikes: Yamaha YZF-R6, Suzuki GSX-R600, Honda CBR600RR, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, Buell 1125R, Aprilia RSV1000R, Ducati 848, Triumph Daytona 675
It's even worse than I thought, I didnt realize that the Ducati wasn't even the 1098! They should have just handed Buell the trophy at the first race in Daytona. I used to have a lot of respect for Buell for trying some crazy stuff with his bikes, but this is just ugly. Maybe it was the Harley jerk offs that lobbied for this series. Everything I've read or seen about Eric Buell suggested that he is a stand up guy so I can't imagine he would want to win like this.
