Wow! Season is over.

Look toward next year.

Matt cannot reconver from that.

It sucks tho... It is not Matt's fault. (I do not like Matt much, but it sucks anytime a racer is DQd due to something outside their control.)

Wow. Man that sucks for Matt. Although, I've always wondered just how much the racers know or don't know about what goes on with their bikes.

I do not think the Factory guys want to know.
They just focus on riding the wheels off it.
What do they gain by knowing?

They know what's in the bike.

Wonder what kind of smart ass sticker they put on the crank?

Thats awesome ! Love it !

Just saw this -
http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2008/Aug/e/n080822a.htm

Wonder what they did to the crank ? I just cant understand how moding the crank can make as much of a diffrence to allow him to stomp the other guys likie he did @ VIR ? Im sure it helped, but, what i saw wasa rider set on winning -

Just to clarify, Im by no means a MM fan - I dont like the guy -

The way Miladin went by his 2 teamates on the brakes had nothing to do with the crank.

Without a doubt whatever is "illegal" about the crank would not of affected the outcome of those races.

That being said. Miladins a prick so I'm happy and he's sad. so it's a good day

Of course they know!!! At that level, you know everything that goes on with your bike.

Would a regular crank had changed the outcome of the race? NO but, the bottom line is he cheated and got caught... Period!

MM stomped on the competition mean craps since Ben has stomped on him many a times as well.

Don't they always inspect the bikes from the 3 podium guys?

Yeah, but, hardly ever this deep - most of the time they just weigh them ,check thier fuel , check thier brakes and maybe/maybe pull thier valve covers to inspect thier cams and maybe pull thier heads off for inspoection. But , most of the time its only weight and fuel that gets checked -
