Taken out 2 years in a row at the same place is hard to stomach,props for not spittin the dummy...On the downside the TK Honda was atrocious at miller last year+i dont expect much different this year...What is going on at TK nowadays anyway? do they not have the ability to develop a bike anymore,everyone else takes a step forward+they remain static!!
