DNF mechanical FBF

Whats up with FBF?. Big time props to Luca and Matt.....but how many races have ended for them because of mechanical issues? I've stopped counting. FBF needs to figure thier sh!t out. These guys are blowing up motors every race.


okay....I'm done.

Hey,
We HAVE not been blowing up motors during the weekend/year. Mostly just little issues, Race 1 at Elkhart was a faulty hose clamp poping off, Cali Speedway was the shock coming apart, And Race 2 at Infineon was an internal part, but our engines are not becoming un-done. The bike is getting better. We have just had some teething issues so to speak..... we expect big changes for Miller... Thanks for all of the support guys!!! You Rock!

Whoa.
You never know who is listening
Well to be fair everyone, FBF did say this was a 'shake down' season.
You really cant expect a new bike on a track new to it, with half the team who has not been here before to shine............ unless you are Rossi and Jeremy

Italian outfit, Rubber, heat, grunting, and you fill the open hole for more?? What's not to love??

Makes for great photography, though.

Still processing, but got some photos of Matt and Luca here.

Sample is attached.

Matt don't get upset. Here are only peoples complaining about You, Luca and FBF which don't have a glimpse of a Clue about Racing. I saw only Daytona so far, since I'm out of business reasons in Italy. But from what I read I can see that you Guys do a marvelous job. Realisticly is a top ten result a giant achievement, any better would be a wonder. Considering the full factory competition of HoYaKazuki. What did I read last time that Mladin and Spies have now even a Launch Control, besides all the other electronical aids. No wonder that the old man and Ben drive like from another star. Matt do You know anything about Factory develepment of driving Aids, as traction control ? Which would be available for FBF soon ? Of Course this would need excessive testing either. How ever good luck on the next rounds, You do pretty well my friend !

Make no mistake, Im not upset not even a little. I know what Ytak was stating. He is just wondering what is going on, Im just trying to fill everyone in and make the facts clear. Yes, it is true some of the issues that we have had, could have been prevented but some of these issues came outta nowhere. Such as a hose clamp in race one at Elkhart, The shock in race two at Cali was just a freak deal. Anyways, we should have some more new stuff to try out at Miller for the race. As for electronics, Im not quite sure when and what we will get....
