motogp is boring , can anyone tell me what happened in the last race apart from the lights going to green?
rossi in superbikes would be awesome ,the following would double , what rossi is saying is what we all know wsbk is very close racing lots of passing and rider error and all that makes for better viewing , unlike the modern day motogp witch looks like its from a console game,maybe rossi should do a wild card in a wsbk race like supersic did at imola
well thats my rant think whatever you like motogp is BORING ban all the rider aids make it more about the rider than the bike bring back the thrills&spills

motoGP is boring, remember Colin Edwards tweet after actually watching a race instead of riding one. but yeah, Rossi and Edwards back in WSBK going against Biaggi, Checa, Melandri etc that would be worth watching.

vale and col in wsb would indeed be interesting , why? , i'll tell you why.
firstly there is nearly double the amount of bikes on the grid to ensure there will be battles.
secondly the talent pool is more evenly matched , so it will create battles.
thirdly the pace is much more layed back than motogp , ensuring there will be overtakes aplenty.
what do you think would happen if stoner/jlo/and pedro moved to wsb??
the pace would blow the rest away , there would be 3 dudes a mile in front , there would be a largly unchanged podium.
motogp has 3 champion speed racers at the same time , they rarely ever make mistakes.
love motogp or hate it , the best riders in the world are in it , what people seem to wish for is a grid of average racers falling over each other!

If Rossi, Stoner, Lorenzo and Pedrosa would race in WSBK, it would be just as "boring" as MotoGP. These guys make few errors, that is what makes them the best motorcycle riders on this planet. And fewer mistakes is fewer passing attempts.

I think now is the time for both Rossi and Bayliss to be given wild card rides at Imola. Rossi needs to get his mojo back and one way is to have a real battle for a win in any class. Bayliss could run on my mtb and still probably run at the front, as long as it was red!
Even let them run the Panigale to add more spice, as if that would be needed.

Announce this sand see attendance double!
