The sole Triumph in 2013 WSS ?

Was an interesting race for sure. I think Kawasaki are going to be the force for 2013. Wonder why Triumph can't be bothered with the world stage!

Kawi was the odds on favorite being they are actually getting support from KHI (factory) and you have Sofogolu.. The yamaha i was suprised was so far down on top end power.. Other than that the Yamaha looked better in every aspect.. Kinda curios as to why the R6 was running a full length exhaust?

And that MV was looking for a solid 4th till it broke down.. Triumph is going to be a back field bike judging by what we saw this weekend.

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

Welcome to Phillip Island and I wonder why they cut the laps down.
Andy who runs that team is a great person and has helped out many a rider over the years from National level to club level. They will be up against it this year without factory, or as it stands at the moment very little support.
Still I noticed Mitch went from near the back of the grid to 23rd before he crashed, last week.

When I've been good she lets me race

Another complete lackluster performance from the D675R this weekend... Are these guys getting factory support?

I am guessing they are putting their eggs in the BSS series?

In a word No, nothing, and at the start of the year a couple of sponsors pulled out so they are doing the year out of their own pockets.
They had a motor on its last legs for the race by the sounds of it and in Practise 1 it drop a huge amount of oil, but I haven't heard what happened.
I just took this off Mitch's FB page as well
Disaster day 2 at Monza yesterday. Missed the whole free practice which was dry. Qualifier was dry for a bit, rain drops caught me out with a huge crash. Bruised and battered but hopefully race ok today.
There is a picture of a nasty bruised ankle as well.
Then this
Race day at Monza Italy all done. Race was red flagged three times. Made up some valuable positions but a retiring engine lost its will to go fast. No speed, just had to finish the race. Donington has to be good after all this bad luck.

it was at least good to hear the broadcasters talk about the Team for a bit... Competing against the likes of teams with far more $ and support cannot even remotely be easy.. Best of luck and wishes to them.

Guessing the bike is still pretty standard vs the likes of the Mahi zx6r?
