Late night

Had to take Cheri to th emergency room this evening for a soccer injury. Luckily it is only a severe sprain but it's going to screw up a few plans.

spent a lot of hours discussing business with a potential new Dainese dealer today, trying to find solutions to launch and develop more interest and business for the brand in the great Chicagoland. This lead me to do a some research on numbers and motorcycle sales in my territory. I was a bit surprised at first by the results, but not really now that I have seriously thought about it and looked at the obvious.

Team Factory Connection will be wearing Fox racing next season and won't have No Fear for the first time in years. It will be weird to see Canard, Metty, Warton and the others in Fox gear.
Yamaha of Troy will probably change name again and may sound like Monsters of Troy or something like that. The team lost the Yamaha factory support (which is something that had been coming for the last 2 seasons). Was J-Law too much to handle for the Blue team, did his behaviour cost YOT their factory support? As much as I like his riding and believe that he has a great potential, Jason's behaviour must have something to do with the manufacturer's decision.
YOT will have J-Law and Nick Wey next year, not sure yet on which bike but blue it still can be.

Sx is in less than 41 days but still a lot can happen by then. Guys are practicing non-stop right now and we're crossing fingers that all show up at A1.
