    To me Biaggi was (is) one of the most fine riders. AFAIK, he's retired, unfortunatelly

    Good call Rocker. I think the track at Austin, TX is the most exciting, and demands the best cornering skills that i've seen so far.

    Marc should do very well on other tracks similar to it. He is able to get more of his body lower & closer to the inside of each turn. Twisty tracks
    will favor his riding style very well.
    Causing NC envy wherever I go .

    Well he did it. Took the #1 spot on the podium on the second race of the season and broke Spencer's 30 year old record of youngest rider to do it. The king is dead, long live the king. The choice of running a hard compound rear tire paid off. Pedrosa could only watch it happen.

    Ya I was just thinking in a decade when Marquez has 8 championships ill at least be able to say I was there for his first win! The track is awesome and really big. I think I have walked 10 miles this weekend to see around the whole track. It feels like it never ends walking around it

    Yes, I was thinking of you today. The weather looked like it couldn't have been better for an outdoor event.

    Have a good ride home and tell us all about it when you get back.

    I still watch it of course, but to me, "true" GP500 racing was roughly 1975-ish to 1994-ish. (there's always some leeway there for timeline, of course, but for me personally, those were my Golden Years of enjoyment.


    Sheene, Roberts, Spencer, Lawson, Rainey, Schwantz, Mamola, Shobert, Baldwin, Gardner, etc. Doohan at the very tail end.

    My interest pretty much disappeared once the two strokes were changed to 4 strokes. (which is incredibly ironic, because my all time favourite motorcycle ever, was Honda's NR500...)


    To me, Rossi---->forward, they were/are all "new guys" that I have no interest or "cheer for" feelings.


    *shrug* /old boring dood.

    my you must be old took you long enough to reply.
    anyway I think enough is said on that subject so can we move on


    as for marquez please for him.
    he is fast thats for sure.
    as for Rossi I think his days are over as far as championship goes.
    sure he'll win 1 or 2 races and a few podiums but thats it.

    working with the mentally retarded I would

    I was lucky enough to have been at Silverstone for the famous Sheene/Roberts battle. I was probably one of the few British guys shouting for King kenney
