Usually yooperbikemike starts a thread for each race
This thread is for less specfic whining throughout the year

With that: Nick Harris has gotta go.

General mgp chatter here, then the race weekend specific threads deal with the event itself.

Makes it easier to track, plus as a courtesy we don't talk results in this main thread for a couple of days so folks have a chance to view the race without spoilers.

Current results in the event thread is the norm, so folks know not to read them until they've seen the race.

Ah thank you, I saw the title and thought this was the thread for all motogp chatter.

So do we spam both or just one or other?

Yooperman might want to get his title changed then "Yooperbikemike's 2014 MotoGP Thread"...perhap change it to "Yooperbikemike's 2014 MotoGP of Qatar Thread"

I assumed it was for the whole year...all in one thread.


I know now thank you

He's our official motogp thread starter, kinda evolved that way.

Week to week we talk in the main thread, then just talk results to the event specific in each thread.

That's cool i'll get the hang of it, hadn't even seen the other (sandbox) thread until just now when it was pointed out.


Thanks guys , 2014 looks like it is going to be another good one

I like him.

But, then we've been assualted by NASCAR screaming buttheads for years so pretty much anything else this side of a pop singer works.

Man I hear you; we're still better off than having the pathetic SPEED announcers.

Nick is just too wrong, too often and I can't handle his OVER.EMPHATIC.ABSOLUTE.STATEMENTS!!
I think it's because I watch a lot of practicing and QP's as well as the races.

I was disappointed about Gavin leaving but the new guy sounds good.... except when he commented about the small cylinder of fuel sloshing around mounted on the clip-on
