Gone are the Joe Rockets. He went for the big bucks.

“I did confirm a lot of what John and Kenny have been saying, but I never really got the chance (to do more). To give them a proper confirmation I’d have had to go through at least a day’s worth of testing to make the motorcycle at least fit me a little bit better. It’s a GP bike that’s easily capable of 2.04s or 2.05s and I did a seven, so you can’t give positive feedback. I went slower on the GP bike than I did on my AMA Superbike. I couldn’t be too critical because of the short stint I did
So if he was 3 seconds slower on the MotoGP bike, and went faster on the G1K, well, that doesn't speak much for the MotoGP bike. Or maybe it doesn't speak much for KRJR and Hopper. I'm interested to see what Gregorio can do on the bike....I wouldn't be suprised if they got rid of Hopper after this latest incident...there doesn't seem to be alot of positive vibes between the team and Hopper.
I know the Gp bike is faster on the straights, what I ment was the the straights probably helped the 1000 times, compared to the Gp bikes (The more curves slower the times for the AMA spec bike). No doubt MM would have waxed his times if had enough time to set the bike up to his likings. Plus contrary to the GSXR1000 name its only 988cc, but I'm not sure if the AMA GSXR1000 has more. And yes replica bikes have been out for a while, but read what I said. "Did anyone see the Mladin replica Suzuki is offering this year? No difference in performance, just some decals. What do yall think of these replica bikes (Nicky, Colin, Matt)? I dont really like them.BDA116 said:Uh, the two long straight should have helped the GP bike. The GSXR displaces what, 8 more CCs? The GP bike should be throwing down at least 20 more horses and be lighter. If matty boy had more time to get used to the GP machine he would have waxed his superbike times. He just likes to bitch about anything.
The replica bikes? They've been around for a long time. From the long before the Vance and Hines Yamahas in the mid 90s to the Smokin' Joes of the late 90s, they'll always be sold. Not necessarily my cup of tea, but people buy them.
But that Champion's edition R1 man, that's a collector's item on top of being the magic bike. :evillaugh:
