Saw it mate

Toprak, some rider that boy!

Race 1, think he started from around 13th and won, mental

Would love to see him in MotoGP, just signed another 2 year WSB contract, says he is happy there!

Limited spectator numbers at bike racing but bat as most major sport event a third of tickets are vip allocated.

TT closed cercuit that sports bikes need both sides of the road and riders that have ridden it and know every corner, totally different from normal road riding. Most bikers are killed local to their home on roads they think they know.

anyone going to be at Donnington?

Canít get tickets, guessing a lot of people have them from last year.

As for adventure bikes, I have rode an Africa twin, mate has a shop and a GS, if was looking at an s1000r and a 1250RS and the BMW dealer also persuaded me to test the GS, not for me. Ultimately itís about who is riding them. I donít see many racing them at the TT

MV looks pissed off but at the end of the day he has a factory bike same as FQ and he needs to get it performing, he is not for me

I hopeToprak from WSB gets the ride next year, I would love to see that.!

I agree, I thin Rossi has done sadly, well off race pace as he searches for one more win, cannot see that happening!

You obviously haven't tried a modern adventure bike, I've riden in Yorkshire, Northumberland, Peak District, Wales and Scotland on tight twisty roads and the tall riding position, active suspension suit them perfectly. Several professional road testers have said they couldn't ride a sports bike as fast as the multistrada v4s or ktm super adventure on uk roads.

Good racing this weekend, anyone going to be at Donnington?

Yeah, like the commentators said, very odd re MV, didn't one say he was happy to cancel his contract and forego his wages? Must be bad in the garage, dont think FQ is short of a bit of ego.

Sad to say this, I think VR should give up his ride, let a youngster have a go for the rest of the season, needs putting out of his misery if he won't do it himself.

Echo that, dominant performance for the lad

Yamaha one two and Mir takes third!

MV second with another crap start and then took ages to pass. Sounds like he is off to Aprillia, I bet Yamaha canít wait

Solid race for FQ, still wishing Taka could get a podium, needs to be able to deal with knocks.

Moto2, Sam Lowes, hoping he was going to win, 4th, donít know what was happening with the shoulder glance when Gardner passed him, like he was happy with third!

Great ride by Fernandez. Title looking like itís Gardnerís

Thereís some completion for MotoGP rides in the next couple of years thatís for sure

Agree on the comfort. As for faster, thatís all down to the rider!

I ride a lot in the Peak District and North Yorkshire moors, proper twistys and a good mix of roads. I would put a good rider on an MT09 against anything up to 100mph. Adventure bikes are too big and need too much road space, sports bikes are uncomfortable but with right set up, which is everything, are fast.

Multi v4s, all day comfort, faster than a sports bike on our crap roads, litre sports bikes are track focused and exhausting to ride on road.
