MotoGP » Wayne Rainey - Q&A


In America its like sportbikes are an urban thing yet its better to ride them on twisty rural roads. Harleys are better in the city yet they are associated with the open road...it makes no sense. I live in a small town having come from the big city and all I see now is Harleys and some GS1200 adventure bikes. Yet in my back yard are hundreds of miles of canyon road. Just me and my Daytona 675 dodging tons of slow bikes. We cant even get F1, let alone any form of road racing, to be popular here...no chance for bikes. The Harley NASCAR mentality is too deep. For god sake soccer is finally starting to be recognized here. How about if USA actually got on board with the important world championships...soccer, F1,and MotoGP and stop calling our national sports championships the World Series, or World Champions when no other countries actually participate. Pathetic. What do you expect from a country where people care more about gun rights than quality health coverage.

MotoGP » Rossi, Marquez, Hayden pay tribute to Edwards


I bet 'Monstermash' just has a ton of friends and a solid relationship going...probably not. What is the point in slamming a person who has accomplished so much more than yourself? Colin was great to watch as Jamie James' team mate on the Vance & Hines Yamaha. That was just when I got into racing myself. His retirement, like Biaggi's, is like a particular generation coming to a close for me. Bayliss, Biaggi, Capirossi, Barros, Corser, Haga, Edwards, Fogarty, Doohan, Schwantz, Gobert, Koscinski, Russell, Slight, Chili, and Bostrom...such a great cast of characters from a great couple of decades of racing. Just doesn't seem the same anymore when all people talk about is economy, electronics, control tires. With these guys it was the electronics between their ears that made the difference!!!

MotoGP » Hayden: Redding’s got a lot of quality


Nicky got a factory ride, won some races, won a championship...sure it wasn't a super dominant performance, but he showed some quality...then Honda decided to build the bike around Pedrosa and alienated Nicky. Its been all downhill since then in regards to his equipment. I think he can run at the front here and there if he had the good gear, but if he displayed serious talent...all the people in the paddock know how to recognize that...regardless of the machine he's on...much like Espargaro...and then doors start to open up. Nicky is a great guy but I think the paddock recognized the limits of his talents and opted to shop elsewhere. Sure I could be wrong, but I just think the experienced people in the paddock can measure the riders' potentials pretty well

MotoGP » Rossi revels in old school MotoGP thrills


I have never been a Rossi fan...NEVER. I don't bad mouth him because he is the greatest racer...just not his fan. However, this year I would like for him to beat Marquez to the title. Still I am a Lorenzo, Hayden fan, but Rossi needs to beat that little monkey and retire a proper legend, on top. Great race despite all the issues with tires, politics, class rules, etc.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: 'Lorenzo style' doesn't work on Ducati


There is nothing wrong with copying the established masters of any given profession. Its been that way for 100s of years in art and music. One would intern and study with established greats. THEN you can move on and express your own style IF you have the natural talent. Cal is a nice guy, honest, and respectful of those he feels are better riders than him. Does that stop him from trying to show them a wheel or even beat them?? NO. Doesn't mean he has to be an arrogant, don't need no one else, know it all. He is looking to other fast riders and analyzing their styles to better his own skillset. If he wasn't good already...no one would have hired him. Ducati is a great bike...not every bike can be the best...doesn't mean its a pile of garbage because it cant win all the time. Yamaha had a serious drought after Wayne Rainey and they came back once Biaggi and then Rossi started winning on it. Everything is cyclical. I for one am sick of seeing MotoGP being Yamaha vs. Honda, and

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden - Q&A


You never hear a rider or someone who has been there and really knows what it takes to go fast say you shouldn't do it. Of course it's easy for some fans to think but they don't know what it takes to go fast, the feeling you need and the muscles - Nicky Hayden God, that's the most critical thing I think I have ever heard him say to/about the fans. If he ever read the postings of the some of the extremely knowledgeable and experienced armchair racers on this forum...he might even say something impolite!!! Best guy in racing...I will lament the day he retires. I hope he gets a good bike soon.
