Pick one

Yeah I heard his take. Was waiting to hear COTA because that is a great track.

Only 10lbs more and I should fit in my Helimot suit.
Thunderhill West intrigues me.

Been a long time.

I feelz ya -
my AAMRR/AFM-legal suit was purchased back in the day
from a modest ad in the back of "Cycle World"

it still fits[!] , tho thighs are super-tight [bicycling?] -
however, the main size issue is my ever-diminishing stature,,
in that I was 5'11-1/2" then contrasted with 5'8-1/4" now

this leaves me with a nice vintage suit [it looks damn good],
so long as you discount a 3-1/4" excess waist roll of leather.....

Unusual to see Rossi go down. Especially in practice. Yamaha is at a low with no bikes in Q2. I don't think the problems will last, if they still have the money to support the series.

I recommend watching the Moto3 qualifying.

Lot of foolishness in both Q1 and Q2 and even FP3. Another rough day for Yamaha while Ducati shines.



So many people looking for a tow in Q2. Race direction was handing out prizes.

It's about time for MV. That is at least the third time he has been dawdling on the race line since MM was penalized for blocking him at COTA. He has some bad habits beyond today's shenanigans.

The announcers were really annoying today with stoopids like, "Too bad Ducati wasn't together at the start of the year." Oh really? It would be the Ducati one-two show with MM third and no one else in site. We have seen this kind of manufacturer domination before. Too bad the rules didn't really correct the problem, it just changed the winners, at this point. Ducati gets at least 5% more h.p. to the tarmac, if you believe MM and other racer comments.

I would be so suspicious, if I ran another team that the Italian manufacturer was getting different dope from the Italian ECU than others. I bet Aprilia is REALLY suspicious.

Aprilia can't figure out which end is up. They're still riding the 2016 bike that can't brake and corner- Redding was most vocal and got canned, they've tested the 2017 and it's a little better but Aprilia won't funnel it down, even Aleix was pissed about not getting it this weekend. I doubt they're concerned about an electronics conspiracy when they refuse to get out of their own way. Aprilia is a cluster and Iannone should be lucky he has their ride next year. No doubt he won't be quiet about anything either next year.

You knew it was going to be a cluster when they were all watching the Honda garage to see what MM did. They rolled out 6 or 7 deep in that last group. And then when MM checked up to let everyone by and they just stayed huddled up was hilarious.

Q2 was pretty weird at the end... get on it boys!!

Duc 1 / 2 again.

The race should be pretty good... looking forward to it.

Binder on the poll for Moto2
Good for him. He has the pace for a podium, not sure he could maintain for a win. I don't think so.

So pissed at the Q1 and Q2 sandbagging. There should have been ten penalties handed out.
