Good thing the season hasn't started yet... Better call him, inquiring minds want to know.
Haha, I'll send him an email tonight. Not gonna promise you lot anything.
No, I was hoping Dan was back doing riders meetings.
Welcome back dan!!
Sounds angry! Lol...
I timed Eslick a session or two before the end of today for 4 laps, and got 3 - 15.9's followed by a 16.2. The real testing will be tomorrow & Wednesday.
I hear there's a special delivery being made for the test too!
I hear they are searching for some rear grip. And Danny is REALLY happy. Good signs.
That's about what I would have guessed... I bet it gets lower...
I got mid and low 15s. Buddy was on the geico buell team and now got picked up on the ebr team. They'll knock some more time off for sure! They had a problem with the exhaust being to loud for jgp
LOL THAT is no suprise! Im sure he'll make "adjustments" when needed. (Race Day)
Mark my words, if Danny does well on the Buell someone will call it a cheater bike. That said go Danny go! -Snack
Isn't it still smaller then the Duc?
No numbers, but my sources say they are making significant improvements. And Danny is still smiling.
I dont think they will show everything they have either. Danny should be smiling, he gets along very well with the Buells. GO DANNY!!!!!
No, I am sure they won't. I know they were struggling with rear grip a couple of days ago. I am sure with Erik working on that thing and Danny and May giving feedback they will get it worked out. That is three talented folks working together.
Thanx Johnny but it's now the Massingill report.
You're right! They're testing (improving), not track record testing.
1190 Rotax V-twins with the HP & torque.... Two AMA talented riders.... on a technical track.... yeah, rear grip is gonna be difficult to find.
While there on Monday, standing at start/finish, and hearing Eslick coming out of T11 on the gas.... you could hear it spinning up something serious! And of course out of T14, T6....
Looking forward to hearing how it went yesterday & today.
"Finished with three days testing at Jennings. Lots and lots of problem-free laps, which was great. Learned some stuff, and Danny started getting familiar with the new bike. Lots more power and grip than he has ridden before, so he was busy. Danny and Geoff were worn out at the end, but happy!"
From EBR Facebook post
Mladin called the Duc a cheater bike when Pegram spanked him at Mid-Ohio.
