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.
