I talked to Tyler McDonald today, for those who don't know him he won a few CMRA championships last year and will be racing most if not all of the AMA schedule this year and did I mention he is 16. He is the son of former AMA champ Sam McDonald. Basically today on a 65 degree day with the '06 in completely stock trim, well he added 2 clicks of compression damping in the rear to the stock set-up. He went out and turned, on the stock tires with no damper with the '06 exactly as it came off the showroom floor, was running the same times as his fully race prepped '05. The '05 is a race bike, Sharkskinz, geared, full Akra, tuned, Penske triple clicker and revavled forks with an Ohlins damper and Pilot Race tires. He was running in the 24's today, his normal practice times on the '05 (was in the 19's at the last CMRA race in August). And his '06 is going to worked on a hell of alot more than the '05 since he will be racing AMA this year, instead of just CMRA with a few CCS events. Just a small idea of how bad ass the new bike is. He said it turns like his GP 125 bike!!!!!
