MotoGP » Austin MotoGP test times - Thursday (Final)


I must admit, I've been lured into the post battles between Rossi & Stoner fans in the past, but now I find myself regretting it. Casey was not the flamboyant personality, but a straight-talking, fast as heck racer! This was the Doohan way, and it seems to be the Aussie way as well (Bayliss, Gobert). Easily the fastest rider when he had the bike he wanted. Vale's fans are very passionate, and Casey's are equally as passionate. This is why the wars were waged. I truly believe that had Casey been here, he'd have continued to be amongst the top 3 at most tracks. We still might have a 5-way battle with Bradl showing glimpses of podium potential this year.

MotoGP » Marquez unstoppable at Austin MotoGP test


Marc is rightfully deserved of his ride. The Rookie Rule needed to go, as it has stifled great talent in the past, i.e. Spies. Tire allocation and fuel limits are fine with me. I do however wish they'd loosen up on the number of engines. Maybe 9 in total? To have riders sitting around in the pits during practice sessions, saving mileage makes for very boring coverage for the paying fans. Also, a rider losing points, or even the title, due to the fault of a defective timing component or similar is truly tragic. It's true any engine can fail at anytime from the first crank, but 5 engines for 18 races is too few. CRTs should have no engine limits other than fuel. They stand to be no threat to the title regardless of the engine allocation rule.

MotoGP » Yamaha to unveil Rossi, Lorenzo colours at Jerez


@ My, So true that Repsol has basically been the same for nearly 2 decades. I think it's a little off that the Repsol brand is displayed more dominantly than that of Honda itself. It should be the manufacturer, the rider, then the main sponsor. After all, who's twisting the throttle & risking life & limb, and who built the machine? Just a thought there.

He's got that glow going on for sure, but I don't think the vets are too worried as of yet. The top 4 all truly believe they have a shot of the title, or else they'd not be where they are. It's a long season & anything can happen. Was it 2009 where Casey, Vale & Jorge were dead level on points a good way into the season? Or maybe it was 2008 with Casey, Vale & Dani? Anyways, here's hoping for a 4 way battle to the very end!

MotoGP » Austin MotoGP test times - Thursday (Final)


I'm happy to have found comrades here! Most of the folks I hang around with don't understand my passion for road racing. This place is often times my only outlet for conversation & knowing that positivity can spread almost contagiously makes it more likely for others to stick around a while longer. I also predict that one day Casey will return & hope that day is sooner, rather than later.
