Strange that some would end up looking so well and others were missing chunks. Roberts must have been running a harder tire, no?

could be a few reasons why, compound, PSI and certainly a different chassis.

Yup. Chassis design. And possibly riding style. KRJR appears to be very smooth. The Yamaha this year sure seems to be quite the nail. Rossi's usually good enough to ride around/through it. Unfortunately for Colin, he isn't.
