Just for Inky.....


"I can't believe how fast Eric (Bostrom)'s bike is. I mean, full Superbike spec against essentially production bikes. That's just not right, is it? I tell you, if I had a bike that fast, imagine how fast I could be," Suzuki's Mat Mladin said from the Yoshimura garage after Daytona qualifying. "They've won every World Championship there is to win over the last 20 years, racing (here) against bloody street bikes. What's up with that?"



Damn ya whiney bitch! Wins Daytona and STILL has to complain.....

What's that? I can't hear you........I'm still seeing Matt at the TOP of the box..............oh that's right, you drove all the way there to see that in person! Aren't you lucky!

And I think that Aaron had every right to kick that guys ass. Maybe those damn back markers will stay the hell out of the way for the rest of the season. Fania, what a dumb ass, gets passed by Matt and still is hoggin the race line.......he knows that somebody is coming and doesn't move........lame ass. I hope he has a permanent foot print for a reminder. If I was racing for second spot on the box, I would have done exactly the same thing that Aaron did.

Well seeing how you have never raced I guess you could say that. But, those of us who have raced know that it is the faster guys responseability to pass the slower rider safely. The out side line is NOT the safest route around a backmarker. Fania did EXACTLY what he was supposed to do, maintain his line.

That crash was TOTALLY Yates' fault just like the retarted move that took E Boz out last year. Yates is trying to hard to be fast, just like Kurtis was. Once you slow down, you go faster.

And even if it was Fania's fault Yates showed the world the true class act sportsman he is.

So how's things?:twofinger

Sorry Inky, as I don't know you from Adam's housecat, but that is one of the most stupid things I've read in quite some time. Fania could have gotten up and had a severe injury. Yates' WCW move could have killed him in that scenario. No, it didn't happen, but that's just the point. Yates gave no consideration to the guys condition. All he cared about was winning and he not only took the outside line which the guy did NOT give him, but he took it too far in through the corner. Fuck Yates. He has some severe issues. Yeah, he can ride, but look at his stunts over the past few years: he's taken out several riders with these dumbassed stunts and then lying in the road at VIR after crashing? Yates also chose to pick on a smaller rider and in my books, that's a bully and he deserves to get worn out for that.

No offense, Inky, but there's a lot more involved that just rooting for someone and being glad they kicked someone's ass. Fania could have been killed and Yates didn't even care. That's reckless and as someone pointed out before, that's retarded. :cool:

Well, I guess that I'm the only one who read Aaron's "apology" or explanation, if you will. Aaron said that he had been riding that line for the rest of the laps that he had taken. Fania had been passed by Matt at least 4 or 5 seconds before all of this happened. He knew that others were coming. If he can't race with the big boys, then he needs to get off of the track. I could care less if he qualified and earned the right to be there. If he can't get the job done in real race conditions, then he's a menace to everyone on the track: Aaron just happened to be the lucky one in the way. What if that was Matt that Fania took out? Face it, EVERYBODY complained about the back markers last year...........everybody! They qualify too many people to race in that class. Especially if 1st place can lap a rider all the way up to 8th place.

You can all be holy-er-than-thou with all of your racing experience.............how many titles do you all own?

That's what I thought. I don't race, I watch the races, and I saw Fania stand the thing up in the corner and screw up the entire racing line for whom ever was behind him. IT'S MY OPINION, I DON'T CARE IF YOU LIKE IT. I DON'T CARE IF YOU THINK IT'S STUPID.

I think that we need to get Fania an autographed photo of Mladin, since he seems to feel the need to "stand" up in a corner after being passed by him. Maybe he needed time to adjust "things" after having his farings blown off.

Yup, and Yates could have had , and I quote" both of my legs broken" . Fania could have done much worse to Yates. Sorry, but I'm still taking Aaron's side. IT'S MY OPINION AND I'M STICKING WITH IT, BE IT RIGHT, OR WRONG. I too have a temper, and I would have probably done something like that for the entire world to see....do I think that was a smart thing to do? No, but it was pure raw emotion, and somebody was pissed, and acted out on his emotions. It is what it is. We will see how the AMA takes care of business.

From another forum............



Aaron Yates issues apology
Racing has extreme highs and extreme lows. It almost seems like there's no in-between when you race at the level that I do. For me, after racing 170 grueling miles, I realized that I had a chance to win the race.

With about eight laps to go, I came up on some lapped riders. I set up to pass, using the same racing line that I'd been using on this part of the track all day - in both the 200 and in the 600 SuperSport race.

I came through on the brakes on the outside and in my peripheral vision I saw a rider stand his bike up. So I got on the brakes harder and stood my bike up a bit to give him some room. But I was running out of racetrack.

We went down and were sliding toward the wall and I was honestly thinking that I was going to break both of my legs. Thankfully, the impact was softer than I'd anticipated. I got up thinking that I'd raced 49 laps with eight left to go and a second-place finish in the Daytona 200 was down the drain.

I couldn't believe that this was actually happening. But I never had any intention of hurting anyone. The last thing that I want is for people to get hurt at the track. This is not the way that I wanted to look back on Daytona '04. And this is definitely not what I want the race fans to think of when they think of me.

I'm just so sorry that the whole incident ever happened. And I'm sorry if my actions offended or disappointed anyone.

Aaron Yates

Inky I very strongly disagree with you.First off yates should not have passed on the outside at this point on the track,second the general way to let the faster guy pass there is to give him the INSIDE line (which may be why he moved over).if the guy had a spine or internal injurys ,Aaron the arrogant would be in jail.It was as much aarons fault as the back markers .If it was me arron would have been picked up by shovel .:finger:
His appology is a joke,and you have your opinion I have mine,I have been a part of and watched racing at all levels for years,champion or not Yates was wrong,the world isn't a perfect place,and if he can't deal with the back markers its time to hang it up.It isn't fu#king Nascar out there.
And I feel Yates was an arrogant ass at laguna last year which cost Bostrom the championship,maybe you should ask eric how he feels about yates.or for that matter frankie chili:2cents:

Then we would also need to ask Eric about Hacking and Roberts pinching him out in the last race, the year before that.

I'm glad that you all disagree with me. Good for you. I've been watching racing for some time too, but I'm still holding my ground on this one. I guess we will just have to see how the year progresses. It sure was a great way to "kick" off 2004!

Oh, by the way.........Trigga and I have been poking at each other, EVERY YEAR, EVERY RACE, FOR YEARS. If you want to get in the middle of it, then by all means.............I don't mind chewing you up and spitting you out, just like I do with Trigga!!!!!!!:twofinger

Suzuki's Yares Suspended by AMA
by staff
Tuesday, March 09, 2004
This just in from the AMA:

AARON YATES SUSPENDED BY AMA PRO RACING

PICKERINGTON, Ohio (March 9, 2004) -- Yoshimura Suzuki rider Aaron Yates has been suspended for one race meet and fined $5,000 by AMA Pro Racing for his actions following an on-track incident with KWS Racing's Anthony Fania during the Daytona 200 by Arai on Saturday, March 6.

In announcing the penalty, AMA Pro Racing Road Race Manager, Ron Barrick stated that Yates' behavior after the two collided was completely unacceptable. "After carefully reviewing the tapes and interviewing the corner workers and both Mr. Yates and Mr. Fania, we have concluded that the contact that resulted in both riders crashing was an unfortunate racing incident with neither rider specifically at fault," said Barrick. "However, Yates' actions after the crash are the reason we are issuing the fine and suspension."

TV video tape, interviews with the riders and interviews with corner workers confirmed that Yates kicked and head-butted Fania immediately after the crash. While it was impossible to discern what each rider said during the exchange, it was apparent that Fania was attempting to walk away from the altercation.

Barrick confirmed that Yates' AMA license is suspended for a period of one AMA Superbike race meet; specifically the California Speedway event scheduled for April 2-4, 2004 in Fontana, California. Yates will not be permitted to compete in any of the races that make up that race meet. Barrick also stated that the $5,000 fine could be reduced by 50% if Yates enters an anger management treatment program, approved by AMA Pro Racing, prior to returning to competition.

"Physically assaulting a fellow competitor cannot be tolerated under any circumstance," said Barrick. "This penalty should indicate how seriously we are taking this matter."

Barrick also noted that AMA Pro Racing continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding the actions of each rider's crew members following the incident.


---------Okay, what did the crew's do?-------------

Man, pretty weird: I wrote the AMA yesterday and said all of the things that happened to Yates. In particular I mentioned the anger management program. Funny stuff. ;)

Inky, my apologies for referencing your stupidity before. I shouldn't have. It just angered me as I used to see guys in the OR who didn't belong there because of what someone else had done to them. My immediate thought when Yates drop-kicked Fania was that Fania could have had a severe injury or more importantly a concussion. For Yates to do either of what he did was not only uncalled for and unprofessional, but way uncool and being a pretty big pussy about the whole thing.

Just my :2cents: .

Dude, I totally agree that it was the lamest thing for Yates to do, BUT after reading countless of posts from several different forums.........I just had to take the other side. Everybody keeps saying.....what if.........well Fania DID stand it up in the corner, and Fania DID get sucked into Yates' back wheel, and Fania DID ruin Yates' chance for second place...........and then Fania DID get his ass kicked in front of the world. Was it stupid, you bet, but like I said , I would have probably done the same thing.........Yates was hopping mad.

Just had to be a pain in the a$$ to everyone........it's what I do best! And Trigga knows that, ............that's why it's so fun to post on stuff like this.............gets everybody's panties in a bunch!

1. Yates ruined his chance for second.... Mat passed Fania just fine and went on to win....

2. Getting kicked when you have your back to someone and getting head butted is not an ass kicking... Fania could have done with out the little "jerk off" motion and would have looked like even more of a sportsman....


We all met Aaron at Sears Point and I thought he was pretty cool...nice guy that took the time out to be with the fans... but his temper tantrums on the track are uncalled for....

Jason and Frankie still lead the field in "true sportsmenship"....
