How do you feel about the Bostrom swap in AMA?

Quote:
2005 Renegade Honda World Superbike rider Ben Bostrom will return to the AMA Superbike championship again next season after signing to replace younger brother Eric, alongside Neil Hodgson, in the Parts Unlimited Ducati Austin team - where he will ride a factory 999.

31-year-old Bostrom, previously a race-winning factory Ducati rider in WSBK, will step back onto the 'official' machine after a three-year gap in which he rode firstly for American Honda in AMA Superbike and then the privateer Renegade team in World Superbike.

The only reason he is coming back to AMA is because the guy couldnt handle racing agaisnt true pros. He needs to come back to the states because he can beatup on the privateer racers in AMA. The only reason Maldin, spies, and Yates dont go anywhere....... they like beating on on the little guys.

Side note:The fans pay the bills, without us there is no money.

Theres like 5 guys who finish on top and the rest get the scraps left over. The AMA needs to make rules that allow closer races for the non-factory guys.

85% for the superbike field motorcycles were bought just like the normal everyday right buys their bikes.

Thats whY I am exicted that Kawi is steppin up to the superbike class this year, and mad that Yam isn't. Honda withdrew its factory effort from formula X as well, so I'm pretty sure that class will have no factory teams dominating it.

So now at least we will have 4 factory teams in superbike with 2-3 riders on each team. (Ducati x 2, Honda x 2, Suzuki x3, Kawi x2) 9 riders on factory machines out of about...24 or so riders. Not as good as it should be, but its about the same as WSBK.
