New pit commentator is bootsy. I guess I’ll give him some time to get his feet wet, but not impressed so far.

Yeah... a bit, but a true racer rather than just a journalist so I think he will improve. He can offer some insight and I hope that gives us some.

That was fun.

Two satellite bikes on the front row is awesome.

JL and MV... how disappointed they must be.
Miller seems to be getting on with the DUC.

The first race of the years leaves me lagging on watching practice and qualifying in Moto2 & 3. That changes after watching a race or 2.

Dylan was so much worse than Simon his first year.

I’ve got Zarco to finish behind Rossi in the race

I liked the fact Zarco did it on his own without a tow!!!!

I'm still partial to Rossi and hope he can claim a 10th title while Lorenzo and Marquez safely crash their sniveling selves. Yes they can ride amazingly well but they both just bug the shit out of me.

Well, there is a biased viewpoint, for sure. He was rather annoying, and I immediately missed Dylan. However, I won't stop watching because of him. We all have our legs crossed for commentator luck, right?

I THINK we had an amazing beginning because Cal did not crash. If I am wrong. PLEASE let me know. But, this may make it even tougher for Dovi, (or anyone else behind him) to get ahead of Danilo. There could be some really good racing behind the lead bike.

Yes, it's like brake pads. But in this case it is poo (whore hey) infused with metal rather than other materials infused with metal. Whore hey, with added metal to just to attract attention. No substance, just flashy.

Whore hey (borenzo) is still behind Rossi even though he's on a faster bike. Can't even beat some old senior citizen during qualifying after being the previous track record holder. He should just quit now before it gets any more embarrassing for him.

Young new guys look incredible, and Marquez looks amazing as usual.
