"Waste of a bike. Give it to somebody who is willing to ride the thing to its limits."

So you want riders to die or nearly die like Nicky Hayden? What kind of a fan are you????????? Simple question and we MotoGP fans want a simple answer from Stoner fans. Do you want riders to die or not? We expect a Yes or No answer.

According to everyone here bike kill people. The worst offender must be Honda and all roiders should boycott them now! How long can this be allowed to continue? And Yamaha too, Spies had a similar crash and so did Crutchlow. They better have a riders meeting and let them all know that these bikes are dangerous!

Hayden pushed too hard in one corner just like 2 other GP vets and can't race. Even with that he is a full second faster than Vale. A CRT is ahead of him. No one should even consider claiming that he is giving it has all.

I certainly hope Nicky is well enough for the next round, a concussion won't kep him out but the hand could...

Two other prototypes have been caught up in the CRT battle aside from V Rossi, it seems to me like this is just an attention grabbing headline, the CRT's have been closing the gap between the tail end charlie prototypes for some time now and it was only a matter of time before they started mixing it with the better machinery, the type of track is also probably helping considerably I don't see this as a failing of any riders skill, I see it as a celebration of CRT pilots overcoming their handicaps. Still a long way to go, but if what they have achieved in half a season is an indication of whats to come then there may be hope yet. Especially for the like of D Petrucci (should he be given a mustang instead of a mule)
