moto gp and f1. but ill also watch the ama series and moto2 races.

rossi on a duc.......italian domination. but he hasnt been runnin as strong since germany and his leg injury. but i remember watchin spies run ama in colorado and that guys got some potential. hayden somethin just doesnt seem right with him

Moto2 has had some interesting races, I hope with the new 1000cc bikes the big boys will be more competitive, it does get old watching the same 5 guys place in the top 5 every race..

I'm already pumped for next season, this one is almost in the books already, Pedrosa is doing well but I doubt he'll catch Jorge..

Also, I think once Rossi gets on the Duc Hayden should improve a lot, any rider would.

i dont know if hayden would be able to keep up with rossi. yeah hes a hella go rider, i just dont think hed be able to hold or slide the corners like rossi. but i think its all gunna come down to what tires they choose come race day.

the race last weekend with the japan racer was the nastiest crash ive watched. from what ive heard and read he passed away from head and torso injuries. and there was a youngster that passed away at the brickyard a race before. so im sure theres hunna be alot of debates bout runnin 1000s

I don't know if he'll be able to keep up Rossi's pace for the entire race, but then again Hayden's glory days are on the bigger bikes. It'd be nice to see less electronics, and more rider skill coming into play with the bigger bikes. Tires will be huge as always, but I think the bike with #46's development is going to be so much better that it wont be a lost cause if the tires aren't just right.

I didn't see the crash yet, but it did sound terrible

there really isnt much electronic wise that i know of. maybe the occaisional traction control, and i hope they havnt got abs, thats just cheating.

http://ajjugee.blogspot.com/2010/09/...acer-dies.html

after he goes down he (his body) gets ran over by 2 other riders, which happen to crash as well. theres the whole story on motogp.com and also commentaries from the riders who were involve and also some of the gp riders as well

The electronics are huge in current bikes. In one of the last issues of sportrider they broke down most of the electronics, and the Ducatis are the worst offenders. The traction control is preset for every single turn, straight away, and bump. The bike is set up for the ideal line/speed, and its the rider's job to hit that essentially. ABS is also preset, and other various forms of throttle control. That's why you don't see as much "drifting" with the new bikes.

Man that is rough, two deaths in a very short period of time, I'm surprised people are calling to have the sport banned here in the states

but you still see alot of sliding into turns, just not much powersliding throu them. i remember when the guy started powersliding and the mechanics thought the engine was burning oil but he was throwing down amazing times. then rossi sticking his leg out and everyone caught on.

what they need to do, rip out the electonics and just let it be rider motor brakes tires. take out the middle man

Yeah, I talked to the owner, Mark isn't the one who banned me, therefore he lifted it and told me to keep my cool. I didn't mind being banned from here, but I miss picking on noobs and ETHRTY.
