More ambition than ability these days, apparently  :laugh:

Will be fun seeing him back on a Japper.

 So my pontification is appreciated after all...
 I kinda forgot about posting, i'll make a note to keep y'all informed on all the goings on i hear about.

 With one week left til the first race of the season and im looking forward to seeing Rossi up front competing for a win this year; I hope this means we'll get entertaining racing now that we have a few competitive riders up front. One of them being the newbie Marquez, lets hope he doesnt do what Lorenzo did in his first year and crash out of the majority of races. He's got until the twelfth race of the season at Silverstone to be the youngest rider to win a Grand Prix and beat Freddie Spencer's record. Another racer that thinking about records is Rossi, who might be able to resume his challenge to beat Giacomo agostini's 122 win record, he currently stands at 105.
 If you want to judge the first race by the  last test then the guy to watch is the british bulldog Cal Crutchlow who managed to top the timing sheets on the last day during his race simulation...

Well I guess it will be easier for Rossi now that Stoner's out of the way.

Crutchlow ....... let's be frank Tina, the guy has a big dick!
The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle there’s no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.

Tangentially linked to MotoGP.
The new owners of WSBK are really trying to kill off the threat to their MotoGP jewel in the crown.

A bit of April Fools here unfortunately. A high level race series with something other than Tupperware Bikes (lots of plastic attached to them) sounds like fun. When I was in Suzuka Japan in 1994 the support race then was a back-to-the-roots Superbike style class. Lots of tricked out FJR1100/1200 Yamahas, Kawa 1100 Zephyres, and the like. The amount of interest generated in these these things alone from the GP teams was fun to watch.

Congrats Scott!
Ask Jorge and Dani to wait for the rest!
From what I've heard from F1 guys when they were there last year, a top notch track!
wish i could be there...
(on a sad note, Jacarepagua track in Rio where so many races happened both in 500cc and F1 with Ayrton, Piquet, etc, closed forever to use grounds for 2016 olimpics...
Wish progress had another word that could mean what it sometimes is...
ciao!

Eric Granado has been doing well in the Moto 3 pre-season tests. Yonny Hernandez was fun to watch last year on the FTR Kwacker (mostly sideways) and should do better with the Aprilia he is on this year.
