Im a big MotoGP fan but Moto 2 or 3 or 4 or whatever those lame feeder classes are; are as exciting as ama superport or superstock or supersport 4 or whatever they call them nascar classes since Daytona group took over.

I miss the 500GPs, but I miss the one year where the 2-strokes and 4-strokes competed together.

Looks like a seriously fun road bike/national racer. But waaaay out of it's depth here. (If I were 30 years younger, that'd be Lusty Bedroom Noice !!!)

Quite a few feel as Michelangelo feels.

There have been many comments about not knowing the riders names, etc.

Too bad for them. Moto 2 is the best class in racing. And to not follow 125 GP or Moto 3 is to miss all the best up coming talent.

Anyone who hasn't seen the likes of Marquez, Iannone, Redding, Corsi, De Angelis etc banging fairings is missing out. It's way more entertaining than watching Stoner disappearing off over the horizon on his own again.

I must admit, I don't care much about Moto 2 or 3. I saw Moto2 live, but it just doesn't carry any weight with me. I like MotoGP, WSBK and even WSS over Moto2. Seems like the class is a contrivance of interests.

Regarding close competition, I'd take WoO any day.

I love watching Moto2, and it is among the most competitive two wheeled action out there, WSS being a close rival. I watched the 125's just not with the same level of interest. I'm hoping the 250's allow for a little more grunt to allow them to explode off the corner a tad more, and not follow each other on the same line for multiple laps.

Fair enough. I don't agree but each to his own. The things that make it for me are the fact that all the bikes are relatively evenly matched so nobody has a huge speed advantage (like they do in MotoGP) and a lot of the riders are young, aggressive and have it all to prove so they ride like there's no tomorrow.

Without a doubt Moto 2 2011 was some of the most exciting racing I've seen. For me it overshadowed all the other classes last year.

Motgp is where its at for me,but when the 250s were still racing that was right up there.I dont feel connected to moto 2,so i get more involved withthe 125s since the 250s were dumped,I hang out for motogp though

I agree with the Moto2 assessment as being among the most exciting racing the past couple years (right up there with AMA racing). I have a tough time with following 125's simply because it's usually after the other races and seems slow; but I cherry pick & tune in for the "good parts" based upon online comments. I guess the other aspect is that those kids will migrate to Moto2 for (usually) at least a year where their up and comingness can be better assessed.
