You're right. I'm an old softy. Bashing fairings and hitting rear wheels doesn't seem to me the way it should be.

Quite the Superbike round, but I don't think motorcycle racing is intended to be a contact sport. Congrats to BMW, though...They must've finally dropped some of their proprietary initiatives that held them back. The bikes were fast right to the bloody last turn!

I'd like to see the Pocket Rocket have better luck. He's a fun guys to watch. Surely he'll start getting on the top step now.
Please say more about this? Thanks!

I think he means BMWs previous policy of using in-house ECU and programing/tech support. Instead of going with a known product like Magneti. And using almost entirely BMW based techicians. But that's a guess at what he was saying.

Hey Okie.

Thought this one deserved a bump.

In fairness, he was quite a ways ahead by the final turn.

Thanks LOL. Just like Rossi to turn around and make a race out of it. But it was funny.
You coming to Indy?
