I sometimes wonder if riders ever take a walk trackside to observe their rivals. Because it's bleedin' obvious who is relying on electronics, and who is fast.

After the MotoGP race at Laguna Seca I found myself inside of T1, overlooking T3, for the AMA Superbike race. Depressing. Only Josh Hayes was riding the motorcycle; all the other "front runners" were deep into the TC, and visibly slower.
