Requiring??? I know it is a point and shoot track, but....

Dani took a nasty high side today. Hope he is OK. Laverty carted off as well.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Hi Ed.
I see that, unfortunately, Dani Pedrosa has broken his collar bone in Friday's FP2.
With 3 rounds in the next 15 days it's a real shame.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

I just wanted to add here and Im not wanting to stir the pot etc. So please lets not create arguments here. Following on from last races comments about Marquez possibility beating Rossi 9 world championships wins. Whilst it may be possible for MArquez to do so, I would like to add that Rossi changed Bikes. A ballsy move. I personally dont like Lorenzo at all, I think he is not very friendly, not a great role model. A fantastic rider though, but I respect his move to Ducati. If he does well on it, good fro him for having the balls to do so.
Rossi was a champion on Honda, everyone knows. But... he had the balls to go to Yamaha, the dud of the bikes in the year 2004. He won on that. Then he took another ballsy move to go to Ducati. Did it work. No

So again maybe its possible for Marquez to win this year and more championships. But staying at Honda isnt as ballsy as what Rossi did. So..... Marquez.... yes u are an exceptional rider no doubt. Change bikes in your career and then maybe you may have the right to be called one of the greatest riders ever like Rossi

Again peeps lets not start a war here please.

I read the Honda still is out of sorts. Lacks grip trying to drive off corners ect ect. . Marquez style is so unique the Honda has to be developed for HIM. Marquez is probably the fastest rider of all time. His raw speed is amazing. When he was on his way to first motoGP title a german publication compared marquez, spencer and Kenny Roberts SR . The lines they used are almost identical.
Rossi could have won in any era. He has both speed AND increadable consistency.
I don't like Lorenzo but you cant dismiss his talent. Smoother lines than the others closer to old European style. BUT I do want to see him run next year . The Ducati is the best bike on the grid and with Lorenzo riding skills he is already the odds on favorite to win the 2017 title ( if he stays in one piece, WOW that was one of the biggest high sides ive ever seen)

wow thats a big call jake i like it. I am not sure lorenzo can work the ducati, but thats just my opinion. Based on no one can really figure the duc outi. I really wonder what he can do on the duc. Do u think he will figure it out straight away and win, or will it take a season?
