H-D XR1200 Spec Class? Comment!
Tuesday, September 22, 2009
AMA boss Roger Edmondson has some new ideas for 2010. Let us know what you think!
It has been widely reported AMA/DMG head honcho Roger Edmondson is farming around a host of options for road racing spec classes next year, including a Harley-Davidson
XR1200 spec class. According to Cycle News,
he is also actively perusing a Kawasaki
Ninja 250 class for youngsters and still trying to keep his single-make dirt bike-based 450 single dream alive. Though it’s widely believed none of the manufacturers have much desire to race a spec-bike based on something they don’t even sell. (Will someone please bring the Red Bull Rookies Cup back?)
But as for the XR1200 class, to this I say: Really? The H-D Sportster spec class has been done, played out, and was outdated 15 years ago. I don’t want to see old men on even older technology machines dragging pipes, footpegs and frames around the track at some ungodly slow pace. But that’s just me… maybe I’m wrong...
So, MotoUSA is very intrigued as to your opinions, thus please comment until you are blue in the face. We want to know what Motorcycle-USA.com
