    Great start to the 30th season! WSS race was also amazing! Loving #7's tenacity in superbike, hoping Jacobsen figures something out for rd 2.

    Re: WSBK 2017

    I've only watched race 1 so far...I thought it was unreal and looked like the most fun I've ever seen. Then I heard Rea and Davies speak and say no one was pushing the pace and compare it to a bicycle race. Really interesting being very familiar with both motorcycle and bicycle races.

    Hahaa, I was talking to my screen saying Rea was holding back and how I hope they are not "asking" riders to keep the racing close for publicity/marketing reasons.

    At least Rea admitting it after the race leads me to believe he was not asked to do it.

    Are the weekend races up on WSBK.com now? I tried watching Saturday races on Sunday and I couldn't find them.

    WSSP was a great race and finish despite the incidents, and PJs mysterious issues.

    BORING. WSBK has lost it's title as the best racing in motorcycles. Cool to see Melandri podium, but he got mugged in the last corner in both races. That had to suck

    Kinda feeling the same way. Lately if I feel like taking a nap throwing on a WSBK race will make it happen.

    Yesssss. I tried to find an addon that would have it but had no luck. Do they have moto gp too?

    This weekend definitely wasn't as good as PI that's for sure. Better racing going on back between like 7th-12th.

    It's lost its luster and poor PJ needs to sacrifice a goat or something.

    I was curious about the decision to go with MV this year. Not that the bikes are slow but more so the reliability. Looks like I wasn't off base on that. They are really sexy though.

    Cronin's sounds absolutely amazing. Even when he just warms it up in the garage everyone stops and turns around to see wtf is making that sound.

    I don't *think* much has changed in the engine over the past 10 years. You'd think they'd have reliability sorted. Perhaps they've turned PJ's up a little too much?
