Right. And if Bubba switched to KTM tomorrow he wouldn't win the SX title either I suppose. :moon:

BTW: Not sure how you can say I hate Yamaha. I came from a YZ and loved it, other than the fact that it didn't turn. Still one of the best suspended bikes I've owned.


If stewart switched to KTM for supercross he would be at a disadvantage, reed would be happy lol.

Preston went on the record saying the bike (KTM) was shit for supercross because of the frame, works good outdoors but is crap for supercross.

It sounds to me like RICKK is just a Yamaha hater. Well I'm a Yamaha lover and probably always will be. Lets just wait a couple weeks and see how that better handling and more powerful KTM does against the Yamaha in SX.:moon::ride::cheers:
Im not just talking about Stewart Im talking about all the Yamaha riders.


So if I understand your logic correctly Carmichael and Reed won all their races because the Suzuki is a superior bike…

Bikes don’t race bikes, rider’s race riders! I’ve sure seen a lot of great bikes loose races because the riders didn’t do their part and I’ve seen a lot of poor bikes win races because the rider did do their part. I don’t consider any of the bikes now (especially the pro’s machines) poor so therefore the racing is rider against rider.

And I do think the Suzuki is a good bike, best turning bike you can buy. Its a lot harder to make a bad turning bike turn well than it is to get extra horsepower to an under powered bike. I would rather have the Suzuki than the Honda or the KTM.

Exactly.

Not to mention that I guess he just don't understand the ignorance in comparing production bikes with the factory bikes that are being raced.
