Yes there are different regulations in the US. Other head lights, carbon canisters in Your tanks,....
And I'm sorry to say it but the US is not the centre of all human minds thinking. The F3 contribution ranking might shows You how popular the USA are.

I will show my ignorance by asking what does the meaning of holding up four fingers which a number of people are doing?
They are referring to the name of the magazine that published the pictures "Revista 400" which means "Magazine 400", the fingers stands for the "4" in 400...

Thanks for sharing these great pictures....

VIVA MEXICO CABRONES!!! :)

I'm also going to show my ignorance by asking what's with the bar-ends on the Oro?
It's a new thing brought into MotoGP's to protect the front brake lever from accidental contact during racing, I have no idea why it's on this Oro, maybe someone showing of their product ?

Interesting. Thanks.

Out of curiosity, do they typically have one over the clutch as well, or is it added in this instance for symmetry?

No, this is the first time I see it on the clutch side also, will have to check some MotoGP pictures to make sure.

They are also used to protect the levers in case of a fall. A salesman once used this reasoning on me in an attempt to make a sale. I can sort of buy into the concept if the motorcycle has a hydraulic clutch and you wish to prevent the shock of an impact from possibly damaging the piston or seal. However, the F3's are cable actuated and I'll bet the lever guard costs more then the lever it's protecting.
On the other hand, if you fell and the only thing preventing you from riding on was a broken clutch lever then the lever guard would have been money well spent.

yup

The one's used in MotoGp has a shearing point in them so they will only withstand contact once, this is so that the riders hand cant get caught on it in a crash. If it was any stronger they can keep it, I would rather replace clutch parts than more body parts.
