Need for R1 Factory Superbike
I was wondering what the chances are for Yamaha to field a R1 Factory Superbike team. I enjoyed watching the AMA Superbike race, but as I watched the Suzuki GSXR1000's and Honda CBR1000RRs, I started thinking about what an R1 Superbike ridden by the likes of DiSalvo, Hacking, Gobert, and Buckmaster could do. Speed Channel doesn't show Superstock at a convenient time for anybody to watch either. The R1 is one hell of a motorcycle, and it's a shame that Yamaha doesn't go all out and field a factory Superbike.
