Hondas have always been bad on the fuel consumption/distance ratio. I was on a ride one time and we had 3 hondas that needed gas that time. It was a pain in the .

Good on Kawasaki, but too bad for them all FX races aren't endurance races.

If the race would have been a standard FX length, Honda would have had 2 podiums and Suzuki the other...

Hayes & Duhamel will win once the other races get here. Barnes' GSXR looked strong as well.

I'm not discrediting Kawi's performance at Daytona. Taking the top 2 spots on the podium was huge as well as a punch in for Honda. All I'm saying is that I believe their spot will be short-lived once the standard length races get here. I wish it wouldn't. I would love to see races every week where all major manufacturers are battling it out, but I just don't think it'll happen. Same w/ AMA Superbike. The only reason to watch will be to see if Spies or Mladin willl win.

That's why SBK owns AMA. Better competition and a much more rider/manufacturer parity...

Not sure I totally agree. I think Spies/Mladin/Duhamel and maybe a 2 others are on par w/ the top 10 in SBK.

AMA just sucks cause the first 5 or 7 laps maybe interesting with 10 riders swapping postions, then Spies and/or Mladin checks out and there may be 1 other rider that may win if they make a mistake late...

It's just 2 races into SBK and Tosleand, Biaggi, Bayliss, Corser and Haga all look they they have the possiblity of winning every week and win the championship...

Yep, couldn't agree more. Puts it more on the rider/team to get the most out of a set of tires...
