the R1 isn't running away from any of the other bikes on the straights. josh hayes is just consistent and has a properly setup bike.
also i do believe the level of competition has lowered some. guys are either gettin tired or teams are just not clickin without the proper funds anymore.... i'm gonna go with funds being the best bet though.

Money and team make a difference, but if it was just that, you'd figure Herrin would have been a lock for 2nd all year, and he wasn't. As far as sticking with Hayes, best I recall is he did it for half of one race.
And while we're on the topic, how much of a difference can a "great bike" make without a rider who can handle it?
Not long ago Chris Ulrich in Roadracing World wrote a review of riding Blake Young's GSXR. Ulrich is a mid-pack AMA Superbike rider, but riding Blake Young's bike scared him to death because it was set up to work for a multiple race winner at a pace that Ulrich was not comfortable running.
