    Anyone think he'll be faster on the saucy Pirelli? Or will he be like Herrin and roll better on the Dunlop? How about comparing him to the satellite Yamaha's?

    I hope he does well enough to maybe get a wildcard or two later this year (with or without Attack) and is gone to Euroland next year.

    I think Jiggy is in better physical shape as well, which should help a lot.

    Super stoked for this / him.

    Why are they acting like this has never been done before Herrin?

    Who is "they?"

    It's impressive to me because it seems to be Attack trying to do it year after year and the bigguns don't try.

    Hell, Hairgel did it years ago in 250s and then took the hair show to europe and wildcarded there.

    I just think it’s awesome he’s racing everything he can, at the highest level he can, where possible. He’s a force to be reckoned with, dirt or asphalt.

    Or like Hayden did when the Jordan team ran WSBK and go significantly faster on Pirellis on equal equipment.

    Dunno, but we always see these guys year after year on the wrong compounds and by the time they get on what everyone else is using they have no practice time left. And the wsbk front is a 125/70 & the rear is the 200/65 so they have to put their heads around that.
     
  17. I think he might surprise a few people in WSBK, wishing them all the best.

    Yes. I don't have the sheet in front of me, but over race distance, it was a lot of time.

    I just don't get how someone can do this many race laps in one weekend at their pace, on a SBK, at a track with little rest like Laguna. it boggles my mind.
