@ Nate Doggius

Nate you ******/Goose! Stoner, Pedrosa and Lorenzo are by far the very best Motogp riders currently 2012. And the championship will come down to these 3 riders ! No Risk!

@ shamu....Easy to win championships when you have the right bike and no competition.
You would have to be pretty good just to win 2 when you have a 9 times world champion to race against and then add in Dani and Jorge.
Then on top of that add the Ducati....I see Vale winning races and a world championship on that....NOT!!!
I reckon 2 is pretty bloody good....ohh and dont forget the wins in the 800's

Yep you definetly are a C !!!K.

BOYS @@@@@@@@@@@

have a go a each other if you must but.
But i think that anyone who bring in to the picture girlfriends, wives and families is overstepping the mark.

But this is a personal view.

the decision to go with the soft option was pretty much his only choice for a chance to win.
the hard option is out of the question for casey , it don't work on his bike without causing bad chatter and taking too long to warm up.
this has been caseys problem all year , he never gets the same tire choice options as others because they simply don't work for him.
he just has to keep gambling on tires all year long with tires and hope he keeps picking one that can work and last.
as we seen yesterday the racing is far better when casey has some decent rubber under him , not even the chatter matters , if he has grip that lasts he will fight to the end for the win.

Love the sad faces on the Yamaha peoples faces ... take that Pianos. Can't stand the whole Yamaha crowd, just seem so full of it.

Spies obviously also left because of being sick of it in his own words ...

Ok $pun%bags I've got a question for youse. As a stoner fan you should agree with me on this. Stoner the fastest on two wheels, considered by a few "the GOAT" as he has shamed and beaten rossi countless times, considered as better than Ago, Doohan, or Hailwood, only rider who can ride the Ducati, the only rider in the history of motogp who can slide a bike. Why only two championships? Surely with all the truths that I just mentioned he should have won every single championship since he started racing grand prix twelve years ago? And please don't tell me it's the bike becuase if it is, all his wins and couple of championships are down the to bike and not the rider.

Hi
Stonr only have two Champs because he is a MotoGP rider and probably not the best 250 or 125 rider
And he only have two Champs because of the Ducati that he was the only one that could ride it fast, but it was above the border line all the time and therefor he did win races but not the Champs:)
If he would havebeen on Yamaha or Honda he would at least have another 2, Rossi was pretty strong 2008-09
Cheers Claes
