    Holy fuckin shit? What a way to end the season... 3 red flags, all kinds of factory racers burning up bikes, super technical track, privateers falling just short of a podium position, last second draft passing to win... all in all what an exciting race!

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    yeah, I got to laugh about the fact that it takes a rider to go and lay down in the middle of the track to get a red flag called though

    oh yeah, tell me about it! And then he had to get up and freakin jog out of the way of the oncoming bikes... and the suzuki pit crew... mad props to them to for putting Yates' bike back together so fast... that was amazing to watch... and then Yates cutting through the whole pack, on a somewhat limping bike all the way to 4th... unreal race...

    WTF???

    Why is it when you go down and come from the back, all of a sudden your bike is ten times faster than the rest of the field??

    When the hell is the front Suzuki rider going to use the throttle??

    Or swerve to distort the draft advantage?

    If all Suzuki riders were to get a stop and go penalty, would they sweep the podium?

    The race was great. People were going down all over the place. Hayden was ON. I was a little pissed that the GSXR's couldn't keep up with the Kawa though. Did anyone catch the French 24 hour endurance race last week on speed channel. It was teams of 2. These guys were incredible. They would crash, drag the bike back to the tent and in under 2 minutes were back on the track. It was great. Does anyone know how they change the tires so quick? All the bikes had 2 sided swingarms but they only used the gun on one side to tighten the rear on.

    do all bikes usually catch fire or this that an added bonus of having an RC51? Kind of funny how both RC51's went up.

    been happening all year to the Rc51's. It must be something with the gas tanks rupturing or something.

    Actually, there is a slew of replaced tanks for the RC51 due to leaks. I doubt the tanks that are used for racing come from the same place, but they might.


    Er, don't smoke around my RC51 please.
