I see a few chips in the paint on that rear rim. How unprofessional.

(seriously, I love looking at the details of these machines, beauty to the eye of a gearhead...)

For sure. It's also why I cringe when I see one somersaulting through the gravel trap!!!

The titanium nuts and bolts alone are enough to cause my eyes to roll up into the back of my head.

Maybe this has been asked and answered before but what is the purpose of the grid(?) or screen(?) at the exhaust outlet.

I see it on the Hondas and the Ducatis.

I suppose it would keep exploding engine parts from being shot out

But actually think it might be to tone down the flames from unburned gas?

It's seems to me that logic has very little to do with any rider saying on a team. Just from my observations of course.

Good for Bradl. He's not a spaniard and that's good.

It is however the closing of last door of factory-supported MGP for Mr Hayden. If you see him anywhere near the front of a race again, it will be in SBK. Eh, he can always hang out and knock back a few cold ones with Colin. Take the joy path.

Any Cox cable users on here? My local listings (Phoenix) are not showing this weekends MotoGP races on Speed, which naturally ceases to be Speed and becomes Fox Sports 1 on Saturday. I'm wondering if the listings are just screwed up or if Fox has decided to shuffle the races off to another of their channels?
