Chad Reed testing blip on a 2006

It was cool to see that Reedy is riding the '06. However, the statement that caught my eye was that he and Voss only have 2.5 bikes between them to test! &%$#@!? Is Yamaha kidding!

The sales just keep slipping away! Also, I gotta believe that Yami is making Reed spin about possibly riding the 4 stroke in SX. I highly doubt it. The factory 2 stroke is one of the best if not the best SX bike out there!

Oh, you mean the factory 2 stroke that he couldn't beat RC on? :banghead:

I don't think he has anything to lose by trying out the new 450f. Who knows, it may be as good as he says it is, and might just give him a little advantage.

RC could win on a stock bike, he's just tough to beat. I think all those factory bikes are close enough that any of those top guys would do well on any of the bikes. I think RC is proving this with his switch to team yellow.

10% bike, 90% rider......all I have to say :banghead:

Thats Bullcrap man...you're way off. It is 15% Bike and 85% rider everyone knows that:D:D

Actually, on my level it's 1% bike 99% rider. I prove that every time I go to the track and the kids on YZ85's pass me like I'm standing still on my YZ450.

I bet on the level these guys are at, when it comes to the competition between them, it's more like 40% bike 60% rider. Don't forget, the pro's actually use the bike to the limit. True RC could whip me on a pitbike, but to smoke Chad and Bubba he needs everything on the bike to be the best it can be.

Especially seeing as how his bike is yellow, and it ain't an anniversary edition Yamaha. :banghead:

I hate too say it but rc is going too have his hands full with bubba..I think it will be bubba/rc for 1 and reed and k-dub battle for 2 .. :banghead:

oh and i belive that's a 55 gallon drum of vp not 15 :banghead:

Last I saw (haven't seen a race recently) Bubba had a hard time keeping it on 2 wheels. Typical newbie to the big class stuff. I'm sure he will get patient and consistent as time goes on, but will he be consistent enough this year to beat RC? Hmm....

yeah, bubba will dominate supercross i hate too say it, just like r/c dominates motocross ..

I saw a article the other day that RC is quoted saying the 06 RMZ will be his supercross weapon too...It will be interesting

As long as those guys stay healthy for a couple rounds it should be better than the last season. Bubba will be fun to watch, I think Reed stays closer in SX and Whindam looks like the last couple rounds of MX he has been riding harder.

im still scratching my head to figure out how you guys know its VP.. no stickers on it.. the can has rust on it which means its nice and worn.. whats not to say its a OLD vp can or just a regular barrel they picked up and use to store plain ol 91 in??????

Speaking SX or MX? He was disposing of RC, Reed, and KDub in the latter-half of the '05 SX series.

Race teams NEVER use pump gas. Especially while testing. Its VP Pro-4.

Who won Daytona? :banghead:

Ricky has already said,,,,, no ifs, ands or buts about it,,,,,

he will be on a 2-stroke RM250.

Yep, Daytona, Orlando, Pontiac and Vegas were all Reed's 2-smoke, but I'm betting you'll see more 4-strokes in the pack this season.

The only thing Bubba dominates on a regular basis are the ambulance rides to the Emergency room.

this is correct :banghead:
