Had dinner at the Cowes RSL and sat with a bunch of MotoGP fans on a tour. They were fascinated with my old mans recollections of being a Norton mechanic at the Isle Of Man in the late 50's and early 60s and how he was one of the first non Japanese to ride a Honda there. There was about 20 of them and they came from all over the world. I did not hear a single negative comment about Stoner, even from the obviously devout Rossi fans. Just a feeling that MotoGP needs another Alien otherwise 2013 will be as boring as hell. Nobody is sure if Rossi will be that Alien or maybe Marquez will adapt quickly. It was good to speak to some real fans after seeing the rubbish posted on this site.

How about "Since both Rossi and I have been racing against each other in MotoGP I have won more, podiumed more, had more poles, had more fastest laps and was the best 800cc rider by a country mile!" corner.

They could rename the Cork Screw at Leguna, "I am out of control and I will illegally cut the corner and smack into Stoner and give my brainless fans a hardon" corner.

Never say never

Hey Wylie.
Get off your soapbox and tell us all what your relationship is to the Stoner family. Cousin, uncle, brother in law, what?
No one could possibly peddle out the Stoner propaganda like you do without being related. Come on, fess up. lol.
