    Hayes has always come across as someone who has his ducks in a row.
    He also comes across as someone who would honor an agreement (in other words, a stand up guy who corners low) so if he was already and set to go with OneCure then it could be as simple as that no matter what Attack Yamaha is doing behind the scenes.

    Sure hope they don't crash into Team Poutine on track, the clean up will be super messy

    I have no inside information or insight to support my intuitions. That said, I feel confident Tom Halverson, Richard, and Josh communicate regularly and in mutually beneficial ways to all.

    This scenario ensures another competitive Yamaha on the grid. One with the all time winningest rider, and one with the #1 plate, on a championship winning team. I would guess Richard views Josh as a cooperative supported satellite team.

    Wire harnesses were on backorder from Ten Kate. Had to call in a favor at Yamaha but in the end, theirs was ready to ship out only a couple of days after we got one.

    I tend to agree with all this. I can't imagine that if Josh was available upon the realization they needed another rider, that they would go any other direction. He's clearly capable of winning it, I'm guessing he'd be the oldest winner, winningest rider of all time, finally getting that last notch on his belt that took him so many years to achieve. I mean what better story could there be? It would garner more attention and positive press than any other potential winner except maybe Kayla.

    And you're spot on that Josh has his shit together and would have been putting this effort together months ago, long before Cam P pulled out.

    Funny. Sounds just like us. Ivpray nothing happens to that kit because we won't get another one on the fly.

    If 10 Ducs can finish the 200 I'll finally consider buying one.

    ....I think I'm safe

    I mean, what do you think the chances are of a 100% completion rate for any manufacturer that entered...

    A quick Google suggests they make less hp than stock under NextGen rules. Seems like they'll be fine.

    I wonder if the SV1000 Batey use to race would fit within the rules of that class

    Got 2 flights non-stop and a rental for under $500, not too sad about that.

    Anything Superquadro based (899-1299) is basically fool proof. Even the current testastretta Evos have plain bearings on the cranks now and are pretty darn indestructible. Running belts for valve timing though is definitely not the best for endurance racing where so much time is spent at WOT.

    We've taken them back and forth from Wilmington to Tampa half dozen times. Clean 737-800s and always on time. We flew round trip for $50/person a few months ago, prices have seemed to creep up since then.

    Only the 03/04 model with the silver frame is legal. 03/04 was the only year the "naked unfaired upright handle bar" model was built/imported in the US.
    Atleast thats what I was told last year. It created a bit of a buzz when I entered it last year.

    This got me curious. Looks like Barnes was about 47 when he won the Daytona 200 in 2016. Per Wikipedia, Josh Hayes will be 48 if he wins this year.
