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.

MotoGP » Austin MotoGP test times - Thursday (Final)


@ Banditfan, Thanks! I've turned over a new leaf this year, trying to be open minded. All the hatred flung around over the years has worn on me & kept me away for long periods of time. It's nice to be objective, but in a respectful way. Showing too much love unfortunately brings others down on you @ times. I do have my favorite rider(s), but I'd rather see them have close battles & lose honorably, than to have processions.

Marquez is a quick study for sure. Dani & Jorge are the likely favs for the title, but Vale & Marc will def be all over them should a mistake be made. Vale will hopefully be closer to the others at some familiar tracks, apart from Sepang, where more data comparisons to the old M1 can be made. Dani, Jorge & Vale are proven rain riders, where Marc will most likely see his learning curve steepen a bit. All this waiting is getting unbearable!! Let's all just hope/pray for an injury free season with few runaways!!

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: Big gains, some problems remain


"I'd say we're seeing a new chapter in MotoGP, one where other riders will have to adopt an different approach or be left in the dust. If he's this fast and agressive now what the heck is he going to be like in 2 years?-FZ1 Jorge achieved 3 poles, with a win on his 3rd MotoGP race. Vale beat him that year in '08 & again in '09. Casey beat Jorge in '11. Dani will most likely place higher than Marc given historical trends. He is a rookie after all. Remember, not even Rossi claimed a title in his rookie season in any category. If Marc does this, I'll gladly bow to him. Either way, it's gonna be an awesome season!

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: Big gains, some problems remain


@daniel kuchnia, I wasn't comparing Rossi to those other riders, but simply saying that they all are my favorite riders over the time I've been watching road racing. Mladin was unstoppable until Spies came along. Nicky was brilliant on the RC51, as EBoz was on the ZX-7 when he was 2nd in points one year to Mladin until Yates caused that massive crash @ Laguna when we could see WSBK match up to the USA. Bayliss vs. Edwards is a rivalry, and especially @ Imola, where I'd dare say it rivals Laguna '08 GP & the Welkom GP in 2004 for the best race in recent times. Losing Sic had me in tears for weeks each time I thought about never seeing him race again. Remember when Miguel crashed his CBR in the 200, remounted & charged through the field, broken fairing & all?!! All these guys rode hard & I salute all of them. BTW, I listed Rossi 1st!! Lol!

MotoGP » Lorenzo: We'd like to be closer to Marquez


@ Shamrone, "breaking news: even if by some miracle ezpleta allows them to participate (and that's one big IF)...? there will still only be 2 factories participating." True, Ducati will be fighting to stay ahead of RDP & ESP this year, which for a factory, hardly constitutes participation for the title. I do feel bad for Nicky. All the hard work & loyalty he exudes, all the while the machine isn't where it needs to be. Here's hoping he finds a way back onto a satellite RC or maybe an M1 when his contract ends.
