Was going to say the same mate, what a race that was, one of the best I have seen for a while

Again, that Ducati 10 - 12 bike lengths quicker on the straights

Looks set to be an excellent season for the fans this!

Well, Ducati on pole.

My money is on MM for the win

Cmon FQ and Yamaha, or a Suzuki would do

Realistically I know I couldn't ride one in full race spec including tyres as could never ride it fast enough to keep the heat in the tyres or brakes. When guys come from moto2 and World supers and struggle what chance would a road and occasional track day rider have.

300 bhp on a small contact patch of rubber, utter madness, would I love to have a ride on one

Yes I've seen it. Not sure the Honda has been the best bike when only one guy could ride it and plenty have tried. No doubt you have seen the unrideables and I've spoken to a few ex racers that did ride them when at the festival of speed and revival. One told me that in those days it was a different world and most drank and partied harder than would ever be allowed by sponsors today and that today's top bikes are probably harder to ride even if they are twenty odd kilos heavier but they have a hundred and twenty more horse power and the modern riders are all athletes in their own right.

Great rider, no doubt, style of his own copied by many, bit of a dirty rat though for me and he has had the best bike for a long time for me, a factory Honda

Agree there, shame Stoner packed in, great documentary if you have not seen it? Nobody could ride those Ducatis like him at the time for sure

Can't see him going either, would he have won as many titles with another manufacturer we will never know but I'm fairly sure no other rider would have achieved what he has with the Honda. Bit like Stoner with his title winning ducati nobody else could ride it to the level required to be champion. The amount of times the honde has spat MM off and he has got back on is borderline insanity.

Could be some truth in that mate.

Canít see MM ever ditching Honda though. I will put my head on the block, he would never have won as many titles with another team

Always makes me wonder though, how other riders would perform on other bikes? That new Honda looks a proper handful!

The Honda has been the hardest bike to get to grips with for a very long time now and MM was the only one that could ride it but they have constantly focused on making it faster on a computer and forgotten a human has to ride it believe this is why rossi never went back and Danni struggled though on it. If MM ever got back to full fitness I would love to see him ditch honda and maybe go to suzuki.

Nearly time for lights out

Aprillia on the front row!

Says MM has now suffered double vision for the 3rd time in his career. Hope he is back to normal soon

Edit - what a result that

Hi All,
OK, so I'm not a fan, but rat boy is not racing Argentina this weekend. Finally a sensible decision. Puig has been pushing him to destruction, 5 falls last outing and he was pushing him to try fp1 and see how he feels.
I might not like / have any affinity for the guy, but I wouldn't want to see any rider retire through injury which was the way it seemed to be going
Best
Jon

I think the eye problems originally stemmed from the 250 GP crash that nearly blinded him? Fair play to the man, like you say, minted so could do whatever he likes but not much gives an adrenaline rush like the twist of a powerful motorbikes throttle. Take some walking away from that, has the world at his feet
