    FP 2 down for MM... :D

    I am seriously impressed with Pedro, Bradl and Jlo. Those people shouldn't be showing that much speed yet! :deal

    Dang, I wish I was there.

    Don't think he'll be close enough at any point to do that.

    Yeah, for the XR's the lap time in Q isn't that big a deal at Indy. The draft for those pony's is the most. Get in with the front four and anybody can make things happen.

    Surprised at McWilliams times. He must be riding somewhere to keep his edge up. He couldn't have just come off the couch...

    That would be a clean sweep of the US rounds.

    I hope the Attack Performance bike picks up some speed, good to see those guys giving it a go. Tough crowd to perform in.

    Just looking at some numbers, the Attack Performance bike's time for FP2 would be 23rd out of 32 bikes in Moto2 FP2. Either the Stanboli effort has major problems or the Moto2 600cc bikes are really hauling ass.

    Top Speed will win Indy, Honda 1-2-3 (MM for the win and take your pick for the other 2 on the podium).

    The guys hardly ever off a motorcycle. Recently raced at the Northwest 200, for example. I'm actually surprised he's over there, I was expecting to see him at the Manx......:D

    Spies had a big, over the bars highside. Looks like he might have done a collar bone.

    You've got to be kidding. Who has the Spies voodoo doll? Never ending bad luck if he broke it.
