Frames:My guess is that the team wanted some frames, not entire bikes. The paper work is probably already in place matching frame numbers to engine numbers. So they probably plucked some frames off the assembly line prior to the frame being stamped. There is much red tape when it comes to serial numbers ( I was the production manager a Buell - when it was still an independent company).
Bike racing has never been, and will never be as close competition wise as cars, because the rider can make a HUGE difference in the performance of the bike.
Yes, but very good riders can battle very good riders.Two good examples: the MZ Skorpion Cup Series and the BMW Boxer Cup Series. quote]When I was at Daytona Last year (2004) the BMW boxer cup was the best race of the day. I enjoyed that race way better than watching the Superbikes.I would like to see that close competition in AMA superbike! Hey, you gotta let a guy dream rite?! ;)It would be cool to give all the top guys actual off the show room floor machines, let them change tires and adjust suspension and let all the same guys run the same class "ACTUAL PRODUCTION BIKES"

In other words, we could sign the factories up for the Suzuki Cup! What would Mladin b!#@h about then?
This is true of Honda and I guess Buell, but blank frames are just another part you can order from the dealer when dealing with Suzuki, Yamaha, or kawasaki. ÊNo paperwork or red tape. ÊI've bought em myself online with no issue
Doesn't anyone remember the BMW battle at Daytona?
