Title: Oh, I think that theory could be tested.

|Oh, I think that theory could be tested. |
Leon and Duke wanted to be 100% sure they'd finish, hence the lower end modifications to the bike. But I don't think the engine would necessarily have to be brand-spankin' new "just" to survive 10,000 to 12,000 miles over 11 days.
Anyway, one Ninja 250 has survived each of the last two IBRs. But only one has entered each one, so it's not a significant data point.
On the other hand, it's still pretty fun to ignore statistics and rag on the BMWs for breaking down all the time.
Oh yeah -- Congrats, Duke! Welcome to the club. You will discover soon that IBDone is not as impressive as you thought. Just less traffic than "the big list."
