Yes, thanks again.

What's really curious is that from a US perspective (I'd be interested to know if it's that way with other countries) the bikes that are competitive in the US are nowhere in WSB and vice-versa. Same with Supersport.

You'd think the light bulb would go off with the organizing bodies to finally normalize the rules between country and world competition. This would provide so many advantages: the manufacturers with better investment/advertising leverage; better, larger, and more diverse grids; better show for the fans; "progression" of riders rising through the ranks; and really answer some talent questions. It would probably encourage more manufacturers to get involved. It's so unfortunate how many manufacturers don't compete in the US

And all this without any downside.

And while on the subject- know one AMA/DSB feature that I'd like to see applied to WSB (and all other classes)? Paying a point for pole as well as a point for leading most laps.
