Yeah like, I don't really have a dog in the fight so I'm just talking out my ass, but it's kind of a bummer the rules basically class out any actual stock 'sold in america' moped and the only way you can be competitive is with one ultra rare late model derbi or by importing a bunch of late model euro parts.
I think if you're in it to win you're probably in the wrong hobby, but it would be nice if a us model av7, 103, or a35 could actually stand a chance, just for the fact that I think this kind of nerding out is part of the fun. I've done the gp200 class in ahrma and it's kinda the same thing, a few dudes have mega $$ cheater bikes and then everyone else fights it out for 7th place ... Personally I think the guys in the pack fighting it out are having more fun but I've never been up front so I can't say. Haha.
