I was wrong here. Roczen was flying on the 350. He wouldn't have gone any faster on a 450.

I heard the reason is because he was on a oversized 250..............I also followed the the road races back then. I think Yamaha placed 20 out of the first 20 places in the the 250s and in the soon to be called Super Bike class, Yamaha 350s smoked the Harleys and Brit bikes.........I know this shit belongs in Olds Cool but thought ya'll would want to know?
Thanks for that, Moses....made this old guy feel like the kid in the crowd!

it's all good. Billy Grossi did some VMX'ing at some of the big events a few years ago but never have seen Bob involved in any. I do remember the rumor of Gary Jones Honda being a tad bigger than a 250 myself. As far as the 350 Yamaha winning at Daytona, that bike is now in the AMA museum in Ohio, I saw it last month. It borders on surreal to look at it because it is so stark there is nothing to it, nothing "impressive" like suspension or brake's it's just a little shit of a bike. Don Emde rode the bike to the win and became the only son of a Daytona winner to win Daytona. He's fairly active in the industry still and is on Facebook. I took a few cell phone pics of the bike but they kind of suck..I also remember Stackable winning, he's another one who kind of drifted off and never came back to jump on the vintage bandwagon with Lackey, Hansen, Jones and the rest of them, though I think Stackable did go the the premier of One Chance to Win the movie about the 1975 500 cc National MX series that was only a 6 or 6 race series and it came down to the last race with Weinert, Stack, Lackey, Karsmakers, Tony D, maybe, all with a chance to win. Great movie, just great.

He might have gone faster on a 250 though, since his Q time wouldn't even have been in the top 7 in 250s!?!

Chiron is joined by retrograde Mercury, which due to the retrograde is spending more than two months in Pisces (February 5 through April 13). Venus just jumped into the pond, and is conjunct Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces. Then we have Mars, and the Sun—plus a new, small (and very Piscean) object called Borasisi—that's the one about how belief interacts with our perception of reality.

That's the nature of Pisces: what is real and what is not, and how do we know? To an artist, filmmaker or musician, what they are creating is what is real. Then anyone who relates to it will experience it as being real, with the power to affect and even change them.

To someone else, imagery, cinema or music may be seen as a diversion or illusion. Borrowing a bit from Dickens, fact or fancy? Well, retrograde Mercury in Pisces sure is blurring the line.
