WSBK » Sykes: Baz proved a lot of people right at my expense…

EmmBee1964: @ JedPB67. I'll try and not confuse you. On the first couple of corners in a race, it is very hectic. You do not put yourself in a position that takes out your team mate. Of course he did not mean to crash, but wiping out your teams entire race is a no no. This isn't something you can argue, so go ahead and try and make your sarcastic comments, but you are wrong if you think Baz was innocent. Yes, it was a racing incident but still a big mistake on his part.
I didn't say it wasn't his mistake but your implication was that Baz did it on purpose. It's racing, you can't wobble round in fear that you'll crash. These guys are on 100% as soon as the lights go out.

MotoGP » Crutchlow, Smith, Laverty get set for TT parade

cossiegaz: Nice to see that these 3 can appreciate the TT for what it is without forcing their opinions onto people.
I wouldn't say Scott Redding was forcing his opinion on people, I didn't see him leading a petition to get it closed down. All he did was express his own feelings and personal view towards the IoM through social media, there's no need for the continued character assassination. People need to more open minded and look at the situation from Redding's point of view. If you lost your father, brother, son/daughter or your friend while they were doing anything, not just the TT, but sky diving or rock climbing then you'd have a negative view towards whatever it was too.

MotoGP » Scott Redding pulls out of TT appearance

Conrice: I'm tired of the BS that comes up. Look at the stats. The TT has gotten safer through the years. Whether you like it or not, the bikes are going faster and faster, and less people are dying. It's mainly due to tire tech, rider aids, and safety equipment.
I just randomly scrolled back through a list of riders who have lost their lives at the TT. In the last 4 years 11 riders have lost their lives, I looked at the riders lost covering the 4 years from 1957 and 1960 - 8 riders. From 1979 to 1983 - 9 riders. So there's your stats right there for you, it's not getting safer at all. Please note I'm not saying I want to see the TT stopped, just proving that as rider safety equipment has improved the bikes have become faster, the lap times have dropped and the danger has risen in equal terms with these factors.

MotoGP » Scott Redding pulls out of TT appearance

herewego: And, I never ever met or even remotely knew Karl Harris, but I still feel shocked and upset at his death!! When you actually know people, imagine how would feel!! Would you still be involved in a parade lap!! No, you wouldn't !!!
Well said, a sidecar passenger named Dave Wells lost his life 10 foot in front of me during the last race meeting I attended before I started passengering myself. It was far from easy to deal with and I, similarly, didn't know him, but it certainly affects me.
