Caseys fans were hanging on to every word of that press conference. Will he, won't he. Nope he didn't, you didn't get a thankyou, not even an acknowledgement, just a cowes was busy comment. So 60,000 dejected fans go home with there tails between there legs and think of what could have been.

Selfish to the last.
But i did enjoy seeing the union flag getting a parade lap.

@See Ya.
Are all you people who can't come up with an answer as to why (some of us think that Casey is the current goat and perhaps of all time) yes Rossi 9 Stoner 2, well as far as I'm concerned while a house full of trophies may seem impressive to some, there are others who think well who did he beat were they on better or worse bikes, were they hollow victories or were they hard fought.
So one of the the things that really sticks out is the inability for so many WCs to ride the Ducati and whats more I for one would prefer to see Casey loosing a WC on a Ducati than win one on a Honda or a Yam, what you all fail to see due to yellow blindness was a racer who bettered the bike that so few could ride.
In my lifetime I've seen racers who never won a WC but had loads of respect because of the feats they performed on inferior bikes.

Bravo casey only one more to go, i hope you change your mind an diced to stay for one more year, to see you bash with rossi marquez, lorenzo and dani on a competitive machine i am rossi fan, but i dont think he will be fast as lorenzo, but he will certainly be faster with the M1!!
i watched him my whole life i can tell you that the old lion has one more fight in him to prove that he can still win a race and all of you who think that rossi going to seat on the yamaha and be WC you are so wrong and all of you who think that he is a fraud are stupid, i have all the races from gp 500 and motogp ,i watched them a 1000 times i can tell one thing he earned to be a champion like casey and lorenzo earned to be champions. Going to ducati was a mistake he knows it i know it and you all know it.

The only bike Casey could not ride would be the HARLEY D at high speed at PI. Unless he take up his old dirt tracking. That man understands all dimensions, rake and trail, suspensions, gearing, throttle control, traction, combustion, and those slidng tires..
Thanks for the memories mate Good on Ya!

CS rode a fantastic race, was untouchable the entire week end as his rivals readily admitted. How anybody (reference LCT above) can say otherwise defies logic.

The grid will be a far poorer place without him on it next year. You don't have to like him, you don't have to agree with anything he says just appreciate the way he can ride a motorcycle.

When casey won the championship on the ducati am i correct in thinking bridgestones may have helped samas? RCA.

Possibly.But not unlike a certain rider and his saturday night specials flown in for him and him only wouldnt you say?

Why dont we judge riders only with tallent or skill? Eliminte machinery parameter, it is a biased parmter to compare rders, isn it? The best parmter is how fast to adapt a bike, how fast to adapt a new circuit. If Dorna can provide a RACE OF CHAMPION IN MOTOR RACING, IT would be a good observation to the parameters.
The winner would be most skilled rider.
And stoner will win that because: he is most adapted rider to a bike like he did at duc and 07 WC as he did at honda and ''11 WC already and the most adapted rider to a circuit like he did at aragon 10. That s the fact will always a great node at your mind, ros die hard fnboy..
