    Wish ET would just phone for a ride home...

    He cost me 100 points trying to block Dungy last year, now he continues costing more points this year, not exactly helping Kasawaki sell bikes either

    Now Mooskin is hurting

    Murf, maybe get your old riding gear out and look for a SX ride?

    Feel your pain, freakin Webb cost me 26 points tonight! If Vince just could have held on another 2 laps... oh well. Great racing sucks but about Marvin...

    And me race SX, uh no, all them jumpy things scare me. I once just thought about racing Pikes Peak SX and peed my pants a little. Aztec had a practice SX track for a while. I did 1/2 lap and pulled off chanting “nopenopenopenope” :loco

    WOW! I thought all the hype about MM struggling in whoops was over blown hype. Guess not.

    I'm really liking the "new" Roczen. Measured. Deliberate. Fast as hell but riding smart. On the podium interview, unlike last week, Ken was animated and moving his left arm around. Looks like he's figuring it out. Hope he stays healthy.

    Watching Jason ride is pure pleasure. When he's "on," he flows, smooth, effortless. That guy makes easy passes on tracks and in places that no one else can pass on. He's one "Bad (ass) Hombre!"

    And Barcia! The announcers said something about he's in a good place, happy, fiancé, etc. We all know how much raw physical skill and talent goes into riding and racing. But never underestimate the value of a positive attitude and confidence. I kinda chuckled when Jenny commented, "Bam Bam is back." Justin said, "No just clean, hard riding."

    I'm enjoying the racing. Hope ya'll are too!

    Well, they've managed to screw up Race Day Live. Only practice was shown, no qualifiers. I had to leave for a dinner anyways.

    Looks like a lot of us didn't know Marvin wasn't going to ride, we could have done much better if we had known.

    I did manage to not have ET in my picks and had Webb as my Wildcard.

    Lots of Tough Love this in trying to pick correcctly now that the fast riders are out.

    Merf, I'm in your rear view mirror.....

    Looks like Brosiph crashed and burned :muutt

    Musquin got hurt in his qualifier. Fantasy picks were already closed.

    Man, not me! TooF with a 113!!!! Impressive! I changed my picks 3 times after looking at practice times. Marvin always handles the whoops differently than the majority, sometimes jumping through is faster, not last night... ET was obv struggling and I’d already punted him before he announced he was out.

    Pat, I agree, the racing has been great! I’ve never really been a JA fan but he’s winning me over with his smooth AND aggressive style. And Barcia, is it time to believe? Is his head really screwed on straight?

    One thing I noticed last night... IMO KR’s bike setup isn’t yet dialed. Last year that Honda was laser straight in the whoops...LOTS of whoopwiggle last night...he gets dialed and continues to relax and believe he’s OK and it’s gonna get rough for everyone else...

    I noticed his bike in the whoops too. Can’t remember who the other rider was. Maybe Barca. Bike tracked arrow straight while KR’s rear wheel danced side to side.

    I hope KRs honda doesn't eject him again... I couldn't bear to see another bad get off.

    For the life of me I don’t understand why they don’t wear body armor... occasionally you see a tiny chest protector for roost.

    Apparently the pro riders feel the safety gear hinders their riding too much to be worth wearing it. So is surgery and wearing a cast for 8 weeks..

    Pat, I've wondered this for years. I never have fallen for the "Too Restrictive" excuse.

    I would have thought the Factory Teams and Sponsors would require wearing protective gear a part of their contract by now.

    Merf - I think Pat is calling the Kettle black, didn't she herself make the biggest gain? :loco

    BTW, I sent Vince a thank you card. :type
