    I’m not sure if he’s stock 1K eligible, but I’d assume he’s SuperBike Cup eligible.

    Very sad day. No more full factory teams in the USA. I have been watching Yosh for as long as I can remember. Yosh Honda would be awesome. Bring back HRC.

    Congrats to the Ulrich clan!


    Yeah. Kinda breathless. It was a good run. :bow:

    I guess it's a better headline than "Yoshimura Superbike has folded in the USA."

    If Yosh dissolves this union then we'd better put 'Toe on suicide watch....

    I believe Yosh actually started with Hondas. Food for thought.

    As a pipe supplier.

    They are also with Suzuki in Supercross but as the “official factory team” with jcpxyzx (or whatever the jcp team is called)

    So...according to Michael Lindsey who is an MX journalist from SoCal and knows the yosh guys very well, the yosh guys found out about this from the press release. If that’s really how suzuki did business that’s disappointing.

    Congratulations to Team Hammer! I wonder if they will still have a presence in the twins class.

    I read in one of the press releases that Team Hammer will field bikes in Twins Cup,600, 1000 Super Stock and Superbike.

    Wonder if they'll put Fong on a superbike?

    My guess is Fong and Elias.

    From Yosh’s responses on Instagram, it seems like they WANT to race and this is more Suzuki’s decision. Hopefully they will figure something out with another manufacturer and field a bike for Herrin. Like him or not, Herrin’s social media presence is second to none in MA.
