The EBR is currently more than 6 per cent off the leaders pace. Does the 6 per cent rule apply to the grid ?

I don't mean to be cruel,
But look at the Buell,
They wanted to duel,
But ran out of fuel ?
Said Eric to Aaron
“Well I'll be doggone
You'd best get a move on
Or we'll soon be long gone”

Tetley,

You do realize the EBR is only 2 years old. They are fielding 2 mid-tier ama riders, not guys who are on the podium every week in ama or Josh Hayes who has won several championships and I'm sure would come close to repeating what Ben Spies did in 09' is a manufacturer would give him a chance being he is in his early 30s.

EBR is getting familar this year and maybe next year as they continue to develope and modify their bike to truely compete. Hell where has Ducati been for the last 3 years and Kawasaki has really stunk it up with the exeption of the last 3 years with Sykes.

Lets get real and be fair here.

Sense of Humour Bypass ? Patriotic fervour ?
I'm aware of both Buell's company history and competition history, and Eric will need to find something special plus another 30mph if he doesn't want egg on his face on Sunday. That's for real.
If the 6 percent rule applies EBR may not even make the grid.
This is the wrong arena to be starting at such a low level.

fairplay. as someone who the passage of time will show to be an EBR supporter, i still have to appreciate good humor wherever it lies... and here it is. LOL
