Sure there is: "Toyota's February Sales Suffer Over Safety Concerns"

It's one thing to complain about the bike while being the fastest Ducati; if he's the slowest, the complaining isn't quite earned, and is not good for the brand.

Whatever happens with the big boys we should still have some great racing to watch in moto2... I got a real kick out of that last race.

This probably won't make me popular, but me and a lot of my buddies do enjoy American beer. I prefer Coors or Miller light over all the other fancy beers.

Can you describe your head injury and tell us how long ago it happened?

First of all. it was Bryar, and second, who are you calling an old coot ?

Bryar was my home track - they butchered it for NASCAR.

Not a head injury, just a bade case of red-neck-itis AKA Acute Culture Defecency Syndrome... I've had this condition since birth.

I went to college to try to cure it, but came out like I went in: attracked to loud enigines with pushrods, American lager beer and firearms. I think it might be terminal.

Just because speed is too busy with Nascrap doesn't mean there wasn't lots of racing going on this past weekend.

Thanks to Krop for this link

Bol d'Or

Oh and some racing in BSB this weekend as well

No. I wouldn't say that. They are still young bucks in the big sceme of things, they'll come along...
I'd think any track time is good time, no matter what you're riding, and BSB is THE most competitive domestic series around. Learning new tracks, bikes, racing in general. Good move...
I noticed at Phillip Island they were pitted next to each other, so it's probably a healthy rivalry going on there.

Pardon the spelling. I think I knew that. How was your swim? set any times?

Besides, you are an old coot! You just won't admit it.

I did go swimming once to help get someone else's bike out after a T3 'incident' .

1 min 12 sec for 2nd row start of 1985 Superbike Nat'l.

I just read that Repsol is in a bit of bother (shares dropping and Argentina about to re-nationlise energy companies). I hope this doesn't trickle down to the sponsorship monies.
