"Gort-Klaatu barada nikto!"
SUPERSTOCK=YAMAHA R1 1st, 2nd, and 4th, great race! Gobert wins!
That was rider though! I watched Buckmaster, in clean air, no draft, pull alongside and go by into the chicane! Not just once, but several times! That's motor on top! And it looked to me as if just about all the Blue would gain in the infield. The Kawasakis seem to have just a little more off the corners though!Shadow R One said:Dont sell out the Kawis... hayden almost took it
Both of those Suzukis got flagged for jumping.:crash Didn't matter though it was still entertaining to watch the new R1s and the ZX-10s.RedRider0151 said:I more true showing will come on Road Atlanta...but you can pretty much nix the honda due to rider no matter what it does...Jordan Zokes?? who the hell is that??? I think we saw that the kawi and Yami are both very competitive and have very able riders. Dunno what happened to suzi but they were on the pole so that has to count for something. I think you saw more what an experienced rider can do more than anything else today.

That had more to do with the way the bikes were geared and tuned for the race than it had to do with the bikes ability in general.Bladeruner69 said:I agree. The Kawis were a little better pulling out into the oval but the Yams would suck them back in about half way around.
Agree 100 percent. But its gonna be a great season...the youngsters getting schooled on some tracks and the old men getting wazed on others just cuz the young guys are too stupid to know to slow down.CDRacingZX6R said::yesnod
This race was won by better drafting. Rodger pulled a rookie mistake and went for the win to early, he should have hung in second until the last bank. Oh well. Anyone who watched that race and thinks either of the two bikes had any significant power over the other is a moron. The truth of the matter is both bikes out there were ****ing awesome and full of power. This is how a race should be, where the rider makes the difference and not the bike. And the Hydens were just a little out classed out there.
This season is going to be one to remember.
Actually, i would tend to disagree. Maybe.:crashTurbo329 said:That had more to do with the way the bikes were geared and tuned for the race than it had to do with the bikes ability in general.
We don't really know this for sure. Although you do make a very valid point. Those SuperStock Tuners are real slick. Don't be fooled by the class title.R1Budha said:And since the bikes must run stock tranny ratios,
Just another possibility to consider.:dunno
