    I don't know if I'd call it boring. I remember once when I was out on the GS at a local scenic overlook that draws literally hundreds of bikes on a nice Sunday as they parade in either coming out of the city/long island/jersey or on the way home. a stunning view of the river and just close enough to be able to see the tall building of Manhattan fairly well with the naked eye. I was under a shade tree and over heard some female pirate commenting to her male counterpart that they'd done 150 miles that day with general tone that when it came to 2 wheels they were really not two people to be taken lightly. I'd already done several trips west on the GS (miss those..) and just bit my tongue. these days I'm in total awe of decent mini riders and even some of the 65cc riders. I suppose if someone gave me a new water cooled GS I wouldn't turn it down but if it went out west it would be in a van. :D

    we need to keep reminding ourselves that RV and RD are riding at a level never seen before and that includes Ricky "I'n the greatest ever just ask me" Charmichael. Add to that the fact that just a split second behind them come in very unruly and no particular order Malcom and James Stewart, Reed, Milsapps, Barcia, Tomac, Canard, Roczen, and a split second behind them all the usual suspects etc etc etc. These guys are riding at levels that by definition are not possible, on a regular basis. Picking the most potent can of greased lightning to ever meet a can opener is not boring given all the particulars. What was the question?

    I've heard Villipoto is focused like a laser beam.

    like I said. the most incredible riders on the planet.

    though dirt track riders would be right up there.

    along with GNCC riders.

    trials riders are no more than chimpanzees pushing a button when they know they'll get a banana on the other hand....:wink:

    :nono.......Wrong!! The best "all disciplined" riders in the world come from trials backgrounds. Love the pics, vids, etc though......

    Woo Hoo! Bring it. Miss SX DD sure looks nice this year.

    I just like the SX so much better that MX. Not sure why though.

    Because fuck you that's why. Now I remember...:D

    Hard to understand because I think it is in French?:D

    I forget about Canard but he also can be a front runner.

    Canard runs down Barcia only to get Bam Bamed....
    Webb in fourth on a 250 I presume.

    well I'm glad it was only that. I saw mention of it on Facebook made it sound like 51 really crunched 41. I'd say that was nothing more than wrong place wrong time for Canard and I'm much more of a Canard fan than Barcia.

    I like Decotis and think he has heaps of talent but doesn't seem to have the heart, Alex Martin on the other hand seems to have both.

    This year he will be on a orange bike - not sure he will be able to ride it as fast as his Suzuki. Dungey is one of the few who could.
