What? Noway! KTM should have won! Honda just doesn't have it anymore! KTM Baja 690 is the bike that should have won.

If you would have had the same racers on both bikes Honda wouldn't have had a chance, team #1x COULD HAVE WON ON A MOPED! Never mind that the 654cc KTM has been beat again by a CRF450 (that is top secret i.e. really is a 700cc turbo, nitromethane injected bike) I know if it wasn't for the big crash KTM would have not have come in third.........well at least not one hour behind second and two hours behind first. It is quite a feat that it did win over the KLX650 that came in fourth!

There I covered all the trash talk and that should be out of the way and we can concentrate on the truth that Honda does what it takes to win the SCORE races!

LOL... That was too funny... I was gonna say, why are you saying all that in the piggy forum, and also, don't you ride a piggy yourself?

Haha... That was too good though...

Looking for a 1K flame war to go with the Baja 1K thread?

It is to bad that KTM had a bad crash but, I think every team has their story. I am sure that the extra weight and less suspension travel has nothing to do with the crash.

Is there any truth that the number one team was really on a XR650R?

Maybe both Honda Teams just crossed the finish line on tricked out CRF's, but ran 650R's most of the way...:busted::thumbsup::lol:

The 650 ran the actual race, and the 450 was indeed traded 10 miles prior to cross the line and appease the HONDA brass................:thumbsup:

Conspiracy?

There is three serious threads that claim that the XR650R is what the #1 team crossed the finished line with. No pictures, no facts but, some sware that is what they saw first hand. I think they had to much Corona
