It has been boring but, Lorenzo could fall in the wet weather which is predicted for the weekend which could open up the championship between himself and Pedrosa. So it's not over yet for one of the most boring MotoGP championships to date. The battle between 2 Japanese manufacturers and 2 Spanish riders ... hardly a "World" championship in that case :?

whats really getting boring is whining people complaining of boredom.
what is it ? the new in thing?
vale says its boring so his fans go on the march through internet threads to spread the word!!
its far from being as boring as the in thing proclaims.
its not as exciting as it could be , but its also not as boring as everyone is crying about.
if it was you poor sheep would not be watching it.

Phillip Island is never ever boring. If you enjoy motorcycles being ridden to their max then you just wander around the track and watch them at Corner 3, Corner 12, The Hayshed and tipping into corner 1 at 280KMH. The sound they make as they accelerate to 330KMH on the straight is amazing. The way they fight the bucking and weaving as they try not to under-steer coming onto the straight is brilliant. The acceleration and tyre spin accelerating out of Siberia is mesmerizing. Some of us enjoy MotoGP for the spectacle of the best riders in the world riding the fastest bikes to their limit. Even when Agostini was winning by six laps the real fans found it interesting. The same type of fans who love the TT Races where they deliberately gap the bikes. It is not all about close racing. Rossi on the Ducati has been boring as he has not pushed it. Lets hope he gives the Yamaha some stick.

it's only for you or whoever you call "the pure racing fans". The fact is maybe abt 10% out there would like to watch some "beautiful parade" as you describe beautiful racing, the masterpiece etc...
