I really hope the race is a success and MotoAmerica make a series out of it for next year. The really sad thing is the are not allowing spectators at the Laguna Seca round this year. So we won't be able to see if it brings in more spectators.
Neat vids, thx Jim. I'm warming to this whole concept. Imagine shedding 25% of the gross weight of an 800 lb stock bagger and dropping in 170 hp. Like, the output of TWO healthy XR motors but with only 50 lb more than us, ready to race. Must go like a cut cat!
Then wrestling it round a track like Laguna Seca, wow. Love to see these negotiate the Corkscrew, that would take me back to '81 and watching a Kawasaki Z1300 race at Bathurst, particularly through the Cutting.
