Like the Harley Sportster races only the bikes can corner without looking like they are hinged at both ends.


Stoner laps the field.

After seeing Marquez ride at the Austin,TX MotoGP, my money is on him to win it all. No one other than Pedrosa even came close to him all the race. And the new track in Austin is Awesome. So proud to have such a great track in Texas. It sets the mark for new, great racing venues for years to come. Truly state of the Art.

That's cuz it was a Honda track. I don't think Jorge, Danni and Vale and ready to concede just yet. Lots of racing to go, he just showed how he good he is!

Pretty sure no one came close to Jlo in Qatar either, it's a long season ! I've said it before Pedrosa will NEVER win a premiere class championship , he just doesn't have the heart. Is it news to anyone that Dean is a Jackass ? Re the all Ducati Race, the results would have been the same.

That would be telling...
SBK Ducati could use the GP12 right about now, to get back up into the standings, against that smoking BMW!

How many riders have won in the 4 stroke era that were older than Rossi is now? Bayliss obviously; maybe Caprossi?
