This must now be the most boring class of bike "racing" on any stage, world or national. I used to look forward to each and every race. Now I watch the start before being induced (by the "racing") into an afternoon snooze. That used to be the Sunday afternoon routine with F1. F1 now eclipses MotoGP for excitement in most areas. Sad but true.

Motogp has lost its fun races like we had with the 990 or the 500cc. I dont care who's winnig i just want to see the close races with allot of overtakings just like the moto2 gives us.. look at f1how its been since the left traction control.. Dorna a moto1 class maybe is the answer. Same engines, electronic, just different chassis .

Another boring race. Lots of talk of how Lorenzo, Stoner and Pedrosa are so much better than the rest, but I think it's because they're much more able to extract an advantage out of rider aids and traction control. Take the aids off and lest see if they really are this much faster than the rest of the pack...

Y'know when people where talking casey up as an all time great last year, i didnt beleive it , but sheesh if he keeps this up , hes moving up the ladder real fast, if he doesnt retire early, its in his hand to reach rossi's or dare i say aggo's for wins outright.

i was talking about the front 3,
and yes even the rest of the pack was boring, how many passes did Dovi and Cal make on each other,
how many passes did Rossi and Bautista make on each other, how many passes did Hayden and Barbera make on each other..

tell me what was so exciting about that race.
i sure as hell would like to know.

Here here Biddy114...best comment on Crash for ages! Nice one mate.

Bikes at over 300k's less than a second between them and people think it is boring. It's not a video game you homers! To do that lap after lap, with no mistakes and no more than the size of the palm of your connecting with the road...pure brilliance!

Every single guy on the grid never ceases to amaze me, massive coconuts !

Its Prototype racing with the best riders in the world. It just so happens that 3 of them are in another league.

That didn't change with 1000's, won't change with CRT type bikes and would be no different if the 3 of them were in WSBK.

If you don't appreciate the talent and skill htey show chasing each other and looking for the slightest advantage or mistake than this isn't for you. These guys are pushing over the edge in every corner of every lap for the entire race. Brillance and mastery that is the new standard of motorcycle racing.
