Why did I change the title of my last post? After thinking about it more I came to the conclusion that it’s better to race than to not. There are a lot of reasons for a company to race and just as many, maybe more for them to not.

We need all the racers we can get and the factories too.

I agree that the only way to have good racing is to have many teams that have a real chance to win. But as a purist I also want the top level to be unrestricted. The world is not bound by my fantasies. It’s bound by economic realities.

How well is racing trickle down working right now? You can buy an electronics package that does more than the best systems of just a few years ago for a lot less and it comes with a really good motorcycle. Do we want more of that? More factories racing = more of that.

Heck, I’m not racing as fast a bike as I want to be as often as I want to be at the level I want to be racing at. I’ve changed my mind. I’m looking forward to seeing Suzuki racing again this weekend with Ducati, Honda and Yamaha. Next year Aprilia will join the mix. Maybe they will knock over some windmills.
