Ditto Slideways

I would also love to see MC win it this year. The icing on the cake would be Ferry finally getting what he deserves.

I wasn't going to reply to this thread but I guess I still feel strongly about it. I've disliked "Team" Honda ever since they dumped the very up and coming Doug Henry after he broke his back. He made a great recovery and even won the outdoor title riding Yamaha's over the next few years. Honda couldn't get rid of him fast enough. There's no "Team" in Team Honda, IMO. It's all about produce now or hit the road. "Groom people? Heck no! Let the other guys do that, we'll buy the best."

That was one of the biggest chicken-s*** moves that have ever taken place. Turned me into a big Henry fan.

I may ride a Honda, and I may always ride a Honda, but I will never root for "Team" Honda.:silly:

It's not anything more than "Business". Get used to it because it is here to stay. Check out the NFL,NBA, MLB, NHL and even Winston Cup. It's there too, and money talks. Kawasaki has a different approach and has a great track record too, but when it gets to the "top" it's all about Money!

I've decided that I can't stand team Honda. As great of a rider as RC is, I really hope he has a lousy first year on the Honda. I'm rooting for Mac first, then Larocco (yes...i realize he rides Honda, but at least it's an Amsoil ride. besides...who couldn't root for Larocco??), then Lusk (glad to see him leave team Honda! I hope he rides well on the KX.).

I wish RC and ALL the rest of the guys on ALL the teams the BEST, and hope for a Great season that is filled with great races and lots of good honest competition.
I hope everyone can stay healthy and all the series come down to the "Wire"

Ha Ha? What's that?
Honda has won more Championships than all the other Mfgr's combined.
They are the most succesful motorcycle company in the world.
Usually (but not always) the best rider DOES win. RC won because he IS the best rider in the World, Period. I'm not saying Honda hasn't made some mistakes, but on a whole Honda is #1.

Man, that is so true! RC came all the way up on a Kawi, and now that he is the man, Honda is ready to scoop him up. Team Honda is the biggest crock of poop I've ever seen.

I'm not saying Honda hasn't made some mistakes, but on a whole Honda is #1.
The only reason they are #1 is because they have the deepest pockets...IMO;)
