BSL still lurks on 'zilla from time to time ; I've seen his name in the Active Users box . I sometimes wonder what finally sent him reeling . His two main apologists left at around the same time , so there was probably a PM circle-jerk prior to their co-ordinated departure . Right beside the Speedzilla title , there should be a tombstone with a pair of sandals draped on it .

And MotoGP is officially dead! Well done Ezpeleta! After watching the first F1 race, F1 is dead and now MotoGP is on death's doorstep. Rules, rules, and more rules!

It's gonna be GREAT! Much, much, closer racing by a bunch of bikes is NEVER a bad thing. I couldn't give two hoots if the Factory bikes are a little slower, as long as the racing is better, closer, with hungry young guys mixing it up with the Aliens.

I assume at this point guys are trying to lay down quick laps to get an idea of how qualifying will go. If that is the case the two Factory teams (not customer factory bikes) are in real trouble. Dovi or Escargot may very well win this thing.

So when does Cal start crashing his brains out trying to match Dovi's pace? Might be a long year for Crutchlow.

When Marky crashes in the race trying too hard, and the Bot doesn't podium, watch Honda throw their toys out the cot yet again.

You mean the company responsible for this modern classic?


You know, come to think of it, if this is the best they can come up with, perhaps they should leave, and not just MotoGP......

The Disciples of the Church of HRC (faithful to their great mentor BLS) will likely pipe in with cries of heresy....
