Nice going JR65. Four wins at just past the halfway point in the season, no dnf's. Still in the championship hunt. Keep it rolling.

A win and an eighth with a huge points lead. I'm sure Sykes is good with that.

I wonder if there will be the same backlash with SG50 & MM33 as there was with Baz and Sykes.

Laguna's going to be hot, both literally and figuratively.

A: you bet your a$$.

re: "Guintoli came from a long way back to attempt a pass on Melandri around the dipping left-hander..."

...only for it to end in tears.

and NOW laymen see more clearly why it's always best just to heed s1's advice regarding the folly of battling team-mates, than lean on your own understanding. do that...? and your chances of success increase by a factor of 10.

Great to see Rea on the top step if anything this season has taught us sophisticated electronics are best left to the factories cause this Ten Kate outfit seem to be struggling to get their heads around it maybe its talent, manpower and resources are up to the electonic warfare the factories are engaged in.

All in the wrist Mr Rea great work!!!

(Before some smart alec says he has eoectronixs blah blah he doesn't have more hp which is the problem go ask Salom about his electronics set up or his whole kit for that matter only original piece is the engine and you can bet Kawasaki polished that one a bit better than one off the showroom floor)

Doubt it, MM has made his share of sketchy passes, he knows the score. Besides, the chips are considerably smaller on those shoulders.
