WERA on Bike Week

Dave Despain and the bike week crew were at the WERA grand Nationals at Road Atlanta this week. It was a good episode (which is rare nowadays). Bonus: SuperMotard racing. Through some freak cosmic misalignment, Kevin Schwantz did NOT win the TT event. Even caught glimpses of the SV650 series!

Before you ask Kim, yes, it's TIVOd and I'll keep it around this weekend.

I tivo'd that too. I thought it was a good show. Funny watching the pres of wera dropping names like a bad habit.

I caught that too! Scott Russell winning the SuperMoto race on the KTM and pulling a fatty mono across the finish line!!! SWEET

It was also cool to see some of the Suzuki Cup clips..... wish more of the bike makers sponsored a series like that.


But by far the best action on TWT was the 125GP race at Valencia.....JESUS CHRIST there were like 7 bikes in the lead pack at arms lenght battling for the win. I'm even more jealous of Phozed's new bike now

I liked the WERA GNF coverage so much I sent speed a email.

My prediction: CLSB will be 25% 2-smoker by the end of next year
