    This is such a huge event in Japan, and the hardware they bring out is awesome. Honda generally owns this event, but every now and then one of the others will sneak in a win, and the bragging rights that go Lang with such a win are enormous.

    And this year, Schwantz is making a come back!

    Schwantz is without a doubt a GP legend, but his mouth isnĀ“t serving him very well these days (his stupid comments on Pedrosa, etc.)

    Still great to see their team do so well at Suzuka.
