    What's the fastest a 250 has ever been there that you know of?

    Oliver went 29’s the first and only time they ran there with AMA pro stuff.

    How long before we find out we're talking about a ninja 250, and that time just scared them away from even going to try?

    And here I thought 34 was a respectable time after Chaz went 32 … :crackup:

    Rich Oliver was a savage. Talk about lining up on the grid and knowing 2nd place was the best you could do!

    It was a machine only real men (and Alex) can ride.

    Poor Chuck. Second every race to Rich. And Chuck admitted to like 110 rwhp from his Aprilia. What did that Yamaha have? Lol.

    In fairness, I think he was beaten a few times by Rocky's machine. But it was a cheater bike, as I once supplied Rocky with a pair of cheater TZ250 grips. :--)

    Good God! A 250 two-smoke puts 110 at the wheel? I have a new respect for those things.

    Yeah, but only from 10450 - 10500 RPM.

    And Rich’s Yamaha left that RS250. Imagine the moto2 spec 250s RWHP.
