    All three races were fire. That was awesome. I don't know what else to say.

    Re: Moto GP 2017

    I really wish I had more time to watch Moto 2 and 3, there's just so much good racing going on and not hours in the day. Between MotoAmerica, WorldSBK, and MotoGP, I typically just get to watch the top class and that's it.

    Really awesome GP race though, towards the end I thought Dovi might just pull off the three-pete but it looks like he spent his tires just catching up to the lead pack. I was pulling for him. Championship is shaping up to be something very interesting. Really great ride by Rossi.

    RE: Zarco. He's been awesome to watch, but he continues going out there on the soft compound tires and fading before we get to race distance. Of course I understand the soft compounds have a lot to do with why he can get out front early on, but at a certain point it would seem that if you can't go the distance something needs to change.

    Marquez back to holding court as the king. If Lorenzo doesn't get his shit together I may have to sell the duck and pick up an R1M...

    Yeah, I was surprised with that as well. But then again, the Sack Ring isn't exactly known for its high speeds & long straights.

    Still, never seen that small a gap with moto2. Luthi was pushing incredibly hard.

    Bwaahahaha....funny as hell. Love this quote:

    "Now behind the carriage, and this is important, will be a chain made of 99 links. And attached to that chain will be the Yellow Puta’s stupid Yamaha, which I will drag on its side behind my carriage until it catches fire. This may take a few laps."



    ....Pretty funny. Too funny to be real.

    Not sure about the flow with the body part of it. From what I can remember they said that the wings had to be an integral part of the bodywork.

    With the second pic, I can definitely understand why they're calling it "hammerhead bodywork." Looks just as ugly as the shark.

    That bodywork reminds me of Nien Numb from star wars.

    Re: Moto GP 2017

    Brno was a fun one, I love the strategy races. Whether Maq's lap 2 tire change was planned that way or not, it was cool to watch it all play out and the other 3 guys in the championship chase trying to salvage some points. The piece in the beginning about Rossi's first 125cc title was great, love the hair.

    Re: Moto GP 2017

    Man, Ive become so bored with MotoGP lately, I dont know why. I barely even watch the race, and usually fast forward the last handful of laps. It just doesnt hold my attention. F1? Ill watch the entire race, and be perfectly happy. I dont know what the difference is.

    I have experienced the same thing lately. Moto3 I can watch flag to flag. Moto2, MotoGP and even WSBK/WSS I get bored with the lack of passing and general drama throughout the race. Occasionally there is a good race with battles but for the most part whoever gets out front early stays there.

    F1, though admittedly it is manufactured by the current rule structure, can be more interesting due to tire strategy as well as pit stop timing strategy. It seems that the only MotoGP races that have been interesting lately have been due to weather influencing things and sometimes it winds up causing drama and excitement and others it is still somewhat boring.

    I'll still DVR and watch the races though because you never know when there is going to be a barn burner that is worth watching flag to flag.

    Re: Moto GP 2017

    Those last few corners were fun. Hat tip to Marquez for riding like there wasn't a championship to worry about...

    Not sure what went down with Rossi & Vinales, maybe they felt the bikes were at a disadvantage and not worth the risk of pushing harder, or maybe already pushing it?

    Good race either way, Dovi earned it

    Re: Moto GP 2017

    That was a fun race. I thought MM was right on the edge of dangerous in the final corner - I'm not sure how he expected Dovi to get around the corner. Glad they both pushed hard to the finish and didn't settle

    What's up with the Yamahas? Rossi and Vinales on the 2017 chassis finishing behind Zarco on the 2016. If you look at the lap times MM and Dovi had their fastest laps on lap 15 and were still putting in 1'24s at the end. Rossi and Vinales fastest on laps 4 & 7 and were in the 1'25s from the mid point to the finish.

    Whichever tire team Yamaha rode it didn't last. Which is odd because a soft rear won the race

    That was a good race. Nice try by Marquez on the last corner. Loved Dovi's reaction to that pass attempt.

    Re: Moto GP 2017

    good race indeed. i usually will put a race on (IMSA, MOTO GP, WEC, ect) on and have it as background noise while i work on something. i found myself stopping a lot and looking over at the tv for this one.
