At the non-pointy end of the field, I find it interesting that the wildcard Martin Bauer, on a WP suspended BMW-Suter, is faster than series regulars Bryan Staring and Lukas Pesek.

Word to the wannabe's out there on this forum. ALWAYS let the superman start the MotoGP thread.

It's his job and he knows it. But life happens so sometimes we get a little anxious. Don't take it into your own hands.

Well what can I say? The title was misguided. But whatever. Maybe you should start the next one? It is Silverstone. Go for it

You have lots of content to work with. Give it your best shot.

A THOUSAND pardons......

Sorry, I just couldn't wait.

Promise to never do it again. REALLY

I'll just slink away now and punish myself by watching Ralph Sheheen explain NASCAR.

Ah, don't take it so hard. You're not the first to bite it on that front.

We like the rest of your chatter. Perfect for the forum...

Well, not that I am a judge. But I am interested in what you post.

Wow, I would not wish that on my worst enemy! IMHO, your biggest "sin" was not prefixing the title with "MotoGP".

You might not ever recover from that. Maybe just watch an entire Major League Baseball game or a single day of televised golf as penance.

What a season so far! Marquez is just incredible... And keep in mind, he's ahead in points and didn't finish one race. Imagine what it would look like if he hadn't taken himself out in Mugello... and yeah, yeah, I know he's not the only one not to finish a race... He's exciting to watch and isn't afraid to make a pass. He's soooo comfortable with relying on the traction control to bring him sliding around corners. I'm not saying he's replacing skill with electronics; I'm just saying he's damn good at maximizing the capabilities of the traction control.

If Dani doesn't turn it up at the end this season, like he did last year, he'll never get a MotoGP world title. This season is his best chance at ever getting one. Marquez is just too fast as a rookie to ever expect Pedrosa to keep ahead in points in subsequent seasons. I honestly don't expect him to take the title this season. He's not really one of my favorite racers... But I'd kinda like to see the little guy win a title.

It's so disappointing that Crutchlow traded the capacity to win for money... But if I were in his position, I'd do the same thing. Trophies don't pay the bills. I hope he puts in some good races before switching to team red next year. I REALLY wish he would have gotten a factory ride (a REAL factory ride, that is).

I'd love to see Rossi do more winning... But I really don't think he can compete with the aliens race after race any longer. Hell, even the one race he won was arguably due to JLo being injured (though, maybe not). He's still my favorite racer... But he's a dinosaur in this sport. I hope I'm dead wrong though!

Lorenzo... Meh. He's Lorenzo. It was pretty badass how he raced right after surgery and how he well he treated the mentally challenged girl that designed his helmet art... Pure class... But I still can't bring myself to like the guy.



My prediction for this race? One of the top five gets Bautista'd and screws up the points standings.

MM was three years old when Rossi started racing the 125cc bikes. Rossi is gettin old for this game.

Took the afternoon off to go to the doc. Lots of traffic and only a little waiting. I get to go to the specialist next week.
Is it usual to meet the specialist in a parking lot of a Safeway?

Got home and fired up the iPad. I watched both FP1 and FP2, called the big boss in between viewings to make sure things were connected and got a attaboy.
