I have been watching for years and dont find it any more boring, I believe the only thing that has changed is that the bikes have become easier to ride on the limit (for the top riders that is) as a result the top riders dont crash quite so much, well stoner and Lorenzo dont anyway....
Valentino has also become a little more cautious, he certainly doesnt have that win or crash trying mentality, and sure, he doesnt have anything more to prove and probably IS finding the racing tedious.

Of course Rossi thinks sbk is better racing, it is. It doesn't matter if you've won a championship or never even raced, if you have eyes and a brain, it's obvious. Stoner and Lorenzo are probably the best riders right now, but two riders on two brands with a chance to win just isn't as much fun to watch as a dozen riders on half a dozen brands with a chance to win(depending on track and weather).

Poddy, Wow, did Rossi pi** in your cornflakes ?

Let it go man, Chess match, as you serious, after the first corner nothing changed until the flag, do you know how to play chess ?

Rossi is right but so is my 13 year old son, Motogp is not very exciting at the moment, its turned into F! on two wheels, yes the top riders are fantastic to watch but I, for one, want to see racing, not time trials.

I always hoped Rossi would end his racing career in SBK on a Yamaha. I wish he would have retired from GP at the end of 2010 and go to SBK.

Well, maybe he will, but please on a Yamaha or a Kawasaki.

Rossi is very, very good at keeping his supporters dancing to his little tunes. It's one of the things I can't stand about him. Such a great racer belittling himself with such antics. I thought 2011 and 2012 might have caused him to shape up as a person. No such luck.

moto gp is the leading manufacturers and the worlds top riders battling it out for bragging rights, I find it fascinating, it is what it is, and sure moto 3 has far better "racing" as does wsbk but I dont believe they are anywhere nearly as interesting.

No doubt SBK is a better show, Fact. Someone here said if Jorge and Casey go to SBK there would be a huge gap between them and the rest...LOL....coming back to topic, I think Vale really enjoyed the race and decided to tweet abt it...but as he was tweetin he decided to spice it up a bit by addin the borin part. The results are
