Toyota dirt bike??

I thought this was interesting....
http://yotatech.com/f123/toyota-conc...rtbike-196321/

I wonder if the throttle will stick on their dirt bike as well. Will we see a Toyota ATV soon?

It is a Yamaha dirt bike. If i remember right, Joe Gibbs racing built it as a "show" bike. Since Joe Gibbs has a supercross team and the Nascar teams are sponsored by Toyota, this project came about.

They are beating up Toyota because it is so rare for them to have re-calls..The other big US makers are always having re-calls..Nothing new

Another thing is that Toyota has built their reputation on quality and they milk that for all that it's worth in their advertising... So for something like this to happen REALLY damages their reputation... more so than for other auto makers.

exactly. didnt ford have some huge recall with the explorer and its tires or something a number of years ago?

both of my cars are 08' toyotas, neither of which are effected by the recall. however, this doesnt turn me away from their product in the slightest bit, even if i did have to take them in for repairs.

about the dirtbike, it looks nice even though its not a toyota product.

I tend to agree. Toyota will recover from this. I know that some of you might be thinking that I can't have it both ways. On one hand like Toyotas in general and then bash their Prius while bashing hybrids in general and also bash them for their recall. My answer... sure you can. Bashing big business is one thing that we do and do well.

I think that Toyota as a whole is better than any other car manufacturer as a whole. I just wish Toyota sold diesel trucks here.

Are you prejudice or just don't know what all the ACLU & Rainbow Push is involved in? Again..... As a race team member that is sponsored... You should stay away from vocalizing strong opinions on matter's like these unless this is something the entire team agrees on and would like known. No one says you can't have your own opinion but there are criteria you should consider when you have sponsors.

Exactly what is it about ACLU and Rainbow Push you do not like? Equal rights? Did you know they fight for everyone's "equal rights"? Just for there involvement in trying to stop the government from snooping in america's phone data bases I support them.

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
