I believe we have a winner. If they would get a good looking paint job (i.e. more than one color - maybe some black and maybe some, say, kumquat or orange) on the Duk, I think it would be a front runner.

Here's a cupla pix from a cupla hours ago....From the Troy Bayliss Classic. Held at Troys home track, The Old Bar, in Taree. He assembled a reasonable field of talent, and they weren't messing around! Racers being racers and all.
This is where most of our Aussie riders come from, Dirt Track. Stoner included, and I'm kind of surprised he wasn't there, considering he lives just up the road, then again, maybe he was?
This particular track is an oiled jobby, meaning it has waste oil mixed into the dirt, to hold it together, and eliminate the dust. Gives awesome grip too. However, after a day of constant drizzle, you could imagine it ain't too groovy
The field included; Bayliss, Randy De Puniet, Broc Parkes, Vermuelen, Jason Crump, Garry McCoy, Josh Waters (Oz SBK Champ & BSB this year), Nick Waters (BSB), Josh Brookes (BSB), Josh Hook ( BSB), Troy Herfoss ( OZ & AMA Supermoto Champ), Damien Cudlin ( World Endurance & German Supers), and so on.
I would imagine there were some team managers around the world gnashing there're teeth tonight! These guys had bugger all to win, and shitloads to lose. Good on em! They raced hard.



Super slick...

Stoner announces his move to V8 Supercars.

What a loss for Moto GP.

Not sure it's all that big a loss for Moto GP, he lost all desire to be there , why should he not move on and let someone who really wants to be there move up.
His transition to four wheels may be more difficult than he thinks. Many former motorcycle racers have tried and found it to be a tough change.
Personally i wish him luck and hope he does well , it's about time for a new star there anyway.

Bootlace, didn't know Old bar was still open used to race there in the early seventies, doesn't look to have changed much.
