After not being re-signed by Rockstar Energy Husqvarana, Dean Wilson is once again hitting the open market in 2019.
Wilson is using his time wisely, trying out a number of different brands and seeing which ones he likes. In a recent video released on his YouTube channel, Wilson documents his day riding a Yamaha, Kawasaki, Husqvarna, and Honda at Glen Helen.
By the way, the Yamaha he rode in this was provided by Kris Keefer, who was also out at Glen Helen pounding out laps.
Wilson released his best lap time on each brand and no surprise, he was fastest on Husqvarna. He was on the brand the last two years, so he should be.
Here are his times:
Husqvarna – 1:58.9
Kawasaki – 159.9
Yamaha – 2:01
