Thanks CRASH for getting that comment removed. Please think about only letting registered users to post comments. That way purely offensive persons can be banished. MM does this, and it makes for more interesting/relevant comments. It's hard to find good reading here most of the time. Mostly sniping one of two riders. Thanks again!

Isn't it the engineering of a powerplant the expensive part? 20,000 Euro=$25,334 & wasn't the Desmosedici around $75k? It's not like all the manufacturers don't already know how the desmo works. HRC claiming 1 wouldn't hurt too bad. 2 or 3 wouldn't either, considering how much Ducati pay Vale. Other factories just can't duplicate it's mechanism until the patent expires. Couldn't Ducati just release a limited run of D16 SBKs for around $40k-$60k? They should have used that engine in the new Panigale.

With Stoner out front you don't get to see that much of him on tv. Then Rossi was that far back we didn't get to see much of him.
We need closer racing this year then we are all winners.

More in house battles for the T.V. to pan back to, while Stoner is miles in front running his own race?
O.K. all you fans. Who will finish on top out of the CRT teams? Bet it won't be Edwards, but how could it not be with all his experience, I hear everyone say. Should be more of an interesting competition than picking who will win out of the GP bike contenders.
Roll on 2012, and hopefully I'm wrong in all the above statements.
Go Rossi.

LCTanner, such negativity towards Stoner, he obviously gets under your skin, people will start to think you care more about slagging riders off than the actuall sport, kind of like a football hooligan!

Bradl is the moto2 champ so fair enough and West got a raw deal with the Kawasaki but the rest of the new riders?

Should be funny watching the front runners deal with CRT riders after about 10 laps. I think in the first few races some CRT riders with be lapped twice.

I suppose the main thing is about CRT development so I guess it can be excused. I just hope 2013 has a better line up of new riders.

I think the Stoner supporters should exercise a little bit more tolerance.

The test of courage comes when we are in the minority. The test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority.

The Stoner supporters should be careful not to fall into the trap that the majority of Rossi supporters fell into in the past.
