You are probably right. I couldnt see the left side from the pit wall and his leathers looked fine. So I was assuming it was just technical.

yea joey did low side. brett i agree with you about the r6's but also the last two tracks are suited to the r6 since they are mostly fast straights and not too many technical turns that the triumphs excel on. kinda sucks the best track for the triumphs is not being ran this year, and thats Sonoma Raceway formally infineon raceway where jason won last year.

Last month he competed in the AFM race At Sonoma, and killed it. Tucker in second place was two full seconds behind him.

Joey was on a bone stock 2013. The only thing they did was screw a pan onto the bottom, set the suspension, and change the tires. He even ran OEM brake pads! It was a thing of beauty to watch.

675R dedicated track bike.

I was in the pits tire marshaling Saturday and Sunday and during the practices and qualifying whenever the triumphs were on the front straight, whether it was the 2012 or 2013 model they seemed to get out motored. Even if they got in the draft they seemed to struggle to match the other bikes (yamahas especially).
