MotoGP » Rossi: We still have a lot of work to do

VR is the calmest man on the grid (does anyone remember when they monitored rider's pulse rates a few years back and found that when other's were racing VR's was normal) and has a history of great starts in races if not in qualifying. There are going to be a lot of pumped up riders on the grid but there'll be one who'll be cool and calculating and this time he has a better bike under him and he has the experience and skill to get through what will undoubtedly be an even busier dash from the line. Especially if, as is quite possible, there are a couple of Dukes in the front row. All speculation of course but hey we have to do something while we're waiting.

MotoGP » Rossi ready to go: 'It will be a good season'

VegasRyder: We could all jump on the MM bandwagon so we can brag that "our favorite is the best" but we choose to root for VR . Win or lose he has been great entertainment as a sportsman for 20 yrs. He congratulates his rivals when they beat him and he is humble in his victories. He's rode extremely well at the top level for a long time. You can say it's this or that but I say look at the last 7 yrs . Look at which riders do the most laps over the season and pre season. For someone who has more money and accomplishment than any other motorcycle racer ever he still works Awefully hard. These are some of the reasons we love to see Vale out on track. Win or lose.
Couldn't agree more and couldn't have put it better - well said!

MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’

If it matters in the least, what Ernst Degner took from MZ was the science of two stroke exhaust design and the originators of desmo valve operation were Mercedes and NSU didn't use desmo valve gear but they did use eccentric rods to drive the overhead cam. All things considered the most advanced motorcycle ever produced was the Vincent vee twin (which was an inspired development of the original single).Anyone who doubts it should look up the spec. and compare it to what other manufacturers were producing at the time. Like all too many things in life it was sadly ahead of it's time. Sorry about the random nature of the comment and my goodness some of you guys really know your stuff!. Got to get down the pub now - apparently there's a penny off the price of a pint.....

MotoGP » Community shows support for Circuit of Wales

This is public money we're talking about - your money and my money. Aren't there a host of more deserving things to spend it on?. How about disadvantaged children ? How about the NHS? You can fill in the blanks yourselves , there's a list as long as your arm. Significantly there's very little support for this daft idea among motorcyclists who are already well served for circuits and know the Welsh weather. Global warming is going to focus all our minds mightily within a year or two and this idea is so inappropriate it's amazing that it's being discussed at all.
