I'm diggin' that! I wonder how we can watch it in the USA? You know Honda wanted Nicky cuz there's a real strong chance an American is going to stand on top of that podium.:D

Brad Baker could repeat the AMA Grand National Championship again this year. If Sam Halbert stays healthy he will be in the fight. Don't count out Jared Mees or Brandon Robinson as well .

Brad could and should kick everyones ass in Spain in a few weeks if his KTM SMR works as well as it should .

And I'm cheering for my Triumph guys Johnny and Mikey to push for podium finishes. George Latus is a really competitive guy, I think they'll be moving forward in the pack.

So much for Latus and Johnny Lewis on the Triumph...I see he's on a KTM this year.

that bike is sick.

And let us not forget that Bryan Smith is a free agent again after Howerton-Crosley has called it quits with that fast Kawasaki. Hopefully they can build more chassis like that and it has no patent on it. Is he back to HD? Something new? It is too bad someone is not trying the MT-07 Yamaha engine in a tracker. Seems like it would be a good mill also... Isn't it available in Canada and Australia? I think it has more promise than the big KTM. Kirkness.....you listening?

JN3n 12-31-2013 04:57 AM

I heard that Bryan was working on buying one of the Kawasaki's he raced last year.

Johnny Lewis will help Dave Waters take the KTM to the next level . ( Notice the Mitas H-18 Flattrack Tires on the bike )
Mitas will come on board for tire sponsorship in 2014 at Non Nationals Events.

Based on how much time he spent on the rev limiter, I think Brad Baker needs a gearing change. Touching the rev limiter, good. Spending 5 secs a lap bouncing off the limiter, not so good.

Champs.
