Roger is a prick .... I think they should just let the manufactures do what they want ... That is how we get things to trickle down to the street ... More tech. comes from the ability for them to come up with and use it. The AMA has been going downhill the past couple of years IMHO anyways!
:+1:I am to the point where I really don
t care anymore, way too much jumping around, back and forth, WSBK and Moto GP are more than entertaining and competitive enough for me.
:+1: F##king honda, they don't know what they're doing.I agree. But if you've been following this, Roger (DMG) has backed down and given the factories everything they've wanted. And everytime the factories (Suzuki and Honda) get what they want, they change what they want. :rant:
First it was a 1000cc class. Done.
Ok, now we want the 2009 Superbike rules that we agreed on already. Done.
Well now we want FIM WSBK rules, but with no spec tires or fuel. Ok, done.
Now they want to stay with the current 2008 rules.
I mean WTF!!
I'll try to post links for all those demands and agreements. Otherwise you can look around for yourself at www.roadracingworld.com It is all there, you just might need to go back a few weeks or months in the 'breaking news' section.
I was pretty excited myself when they were going to do the FIM WSBK rules without the spec tires and without the spec fuel. But then Honda and Suzuki come along... :BangHead: :rant:
Ummm. There is already MotoGP. And where is the money gong to come from to run a "no restrictions" class in the AMA? The AMA already has a hard time fielding 10 or 11 Superbikes, and has to fill the grid with Superstock spec bikes. $300k -$500k Superbikes with restrictions could easily turn into $1M+ bikes (like MotoGP) with no restrictions. What AMA teams would be willing and able to spend that kind of coin on a no restrictions bike? Just asking.I say just the hell with restrictions, lets see just what the engineers can do.
Excellent question. :dontknow: It seems like they got what they wanted. And then they didn't want it anymore....So why did they choose to opt out? Fuggin retarded if you ask me. AMA has been due for a change and this is what it needed.
