Let me take over Triumph I may bankrupt it in a few years, but at least we will have a race team for that time haha
No need to bankrupt anything, Reason being is the Yamaha was built as a racebike 1st, everything else second..

Honda is to worried about making a bike that is everybody friendly.
Suzuki is well, Suzuki
Kawasaki in the US is more worried about the ruff ryders and guys who mainly street their 600's.


It is good that Triumph still have people pushing on with the bike after having had limited success after a couple seasons on the grid. Maybe this year?

Most of you people are not capable of being your GD self, to damn worried about being politically correct.

Remember 2012 DiSalvo had a very impressive sprint from far behind to finish 2nd on some very worn tires.
Quote:
In 2012, DiSalvo competed in one of the most thrilling Daytona 200s ever, closing a 26-second gap in 25 laps aboard his Latus Motors Racing Castrol Triumph to draw even with the race leaders. On the final lap, he set up for the winning pass but ultimately finished second by mere thousandths of a second. He went on that year to win three pole positions and the second race at Infineon Raceway.
By the way, I'm wearing my Latus/Castrol racing shirt today
