I'm gonna miss Casey next year.I always get a laugh from his head shaking if he doesn't get pole or win, or excuses on how other riders were in the way, chatter, arm pump, edge grip

"I just watch the Moto GP Qualy on Speed and there was a CRT bike in front of Stoner on his best lap...but the CRT was a second in front of him going into 11 and Stoner didn't catch him until the line and in fact used him to draft past the line so he might even have pick up a please Casey STFU"

I wonder if this the kind comment you'd make to the guy if you actually met him.

They way some people write on here leaves me thinking there's something vicarious going on.

If you check the times for each sector you'll see he has the pace to be fastest in every one of them. But, for whatever reason he wasn't able string a good lap together.

"chatter, arm pump...."

yes, chatter, who's ever heard of that?....

ANd as for arm pump in the first race of a season, thats definately not the kind of thing you'd see at the local club, is it?..

Hello again, it's hkfui......

As I have stated once before, I'm a Stoner fan. Although I think all the riders are great. I wish I could ride as fast as the slowest....

I don't see the need for the rider bashing...whether it's Rossi or Stoner or anyone else copping it..... I do wonder if the bashers wish they were as fast as those they bash...just wondering?

What clown asked "who ever heard of chatter".
Read Kevin Cameron's excellent article in the August issue of Cycle World (US). In essence, when a GP bike gets on a steep ( sometimes 60 plus degree) lean the suspension becomes almost useless, so manufacturers use chassis flex to offset this phonomena, BUT, and I quote, "such flexibility can also hurt by leading to grip-destroying tire CHATTER". Clear enough? Please don't post for post sake on this site, it embarrasses our sport.

To the idiots calling casey a whinger. I'm pretty sure any rider would have been pissed at the CRT's if their runs we're blocked like that. Some chump said that's racing get over it, you arent the one racing and have no idea how irritating it must be to be on one of the fastest bikes out there, and have all your quick laps hampered by bikes that arent even I. The same class . CRT's are the stupidest inclusion, all or nothing in my opinion. What is the point in filling out a grid if the bottom half have no chance of making any impression on a podium ever.
