and having a huge a$$ chuck of rubber missing from your rear tyre

Go back and check the interviews of Stoner in previous rounds. In one race, the tyre was shredded after 5 laps and he intimated he had received a dud tyre, just as Rossi had this round. Rossi is not the only one to have a tyre issue related to a tyre not retaining its designed form.

re: "has Bridgestone ever heard of Quality Control????"

has dorna, the teams, and fan-sumers ever heard of "You Get What You Pay For????".

as a general life rule, don't look for magic in any situation where people aren't coming off the dime. ESPECIALLY in bike world.

Ha! I just posted a message criticising this site for their lack of action with regard to properly handling haters, troublemakers and trolls. That they delete! Within 60 seconds LOL. While leaving the hater/troll/troublemaking posts stand. Give yourselves a round of applause crash.

JimmyJimmy there is a HUGE difference between a chunked tyre and a tyre going off after 5 laps... HUGE DIFFERENCE!

If you have a tyre that chunks the bike will vibrate your teeth out and of course give you no grip or confidence!

Can you not grab that concept or are you a Stoner fan trying to find another excuse to big up Stoner? I think it's the later!

Join the club Jimmy!

Great ride from Casey to beat Dani today.The way he passed him was incredible.Like he hit a nitrous button!
Sorry for Jorge.I had him down as firm favourite and all his hard work came to ****** all.Not nice,but it happens to them all at some time or another.He has to regroup and concentrate on the next race.Seeing your healthy lead scrubbed out in a single race must be tough.But i have confidence he will come back fighting next weekend.

If crash had not deleted my post in which I defended Rossi as a recipient of a dud tyre, you would have had the context of my reply to kenneth.
