re: "Hell if everything was perfect to start with we would not be debating this right now."

i think what you mean to say is, "if we so-called fans hadn't started devaluing the core motorcycle industry (on which motogp and wsbk are based) back in the early part of the 21st century... aprilia, kenny roberts, kawasaki, and suzuki would have never left... and we would not be debating this right now".

I am worried about two riders in particular, Petrucci and Pirro. I'm a fan of both of them but I'm worried about the possible damage to their reputations if they don't do so well, especially for Petrucci because going straight from STK 1000 to MotoGP is a mega jump. Does anyone know if he had any experience on a GP bike (CIV 125 etc)? I can't find anything.

re: "so I guess it really is true"

YES

re: "No bad dream"

NO

re: "it really did happen"

YES

re: "and we really did lose him"

YES

and if we dare place safety secondary to the "spectacle" going forward, then we show we have learned NOTHING. his death (not to mention the 2 other recent deaths) will have all been in vain. as we spew hate towards riders on top of failing to support the industry, crash statistics conveniently climb to record highs (894). regarding all this, some could argue "karma" has now sent us 3 warnings...?

I believe a Roc chassis may have finished 1st. Wayne Rainey swapped from his factory Yamaha chassis to a Roc in a very public slagging off of his Factory frame which was to stiff, the Roc was a little more forgiving. However it was still officially a factory bike as memory serves. Niall Mckenzie finished third at the 93 British Gp On a Roc Yamaha. What might happen with the CRTs is they can build chassis to rival and beat the factorys, with engine power being their problem.

Looking at the list of riders and diff types of bikes it could be a farce this season. Stoner lapping riders half way through the race. Riders that are not even at motogp level, we could be watching dvd's of the 90's just to get our fix of racing.

Even with a full grid of factory bikes there would be packs of front runners, mid-packers and the stragglers.

Each grouping has good racing within their respective packs.

The CRTs won't impact this. We'll still have front runners, mid-packers and the stragglers.
I'm looking forward to the start of 2012.

My wish is that we get good camera work and editing. Too often we get to see someone's a55 for a lap while there's good dicing occurring with some mid-packers or stragglers.

@tl1000boy.
why would stoner fans need to feel uneasy?
getting a good start is one of the most vital parts of a race , and you also forgot to mention all the other things that stoner is also good at.
he sets a pace and its up to the others to join him.
so no i don't agree with you mate , but i do agree that you sound very uneasy.
