That dodgy video only points out two things we all already knew:

1) Rossi doesn't like to lose and
2) Yamaha's truely are crap

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

The video also proves that
A/ Hayden was the only one really fighting with Rossi on a regular basis.
B/ The rossi sheep are in denial making a 06 video about a loser

Had to use my step ladder to change a light bulb cos i don't get on with my real ladder.

I didn't vote for him, neither did the rest of the educated Americans , but the idiots outnumber us so there you go. It's scary, but in a Democracy everybody gets a vote. And in American Democracy they hide the votes that aren't for the guy with the most "friends." Farkin' Red states!!!

God Bless America!!!

We all know Bush is a knob, so no debate there

What about opinions on why the U.S GP glory days seem so long gone??? I mean since the Rainey/Schwantz days of the early 90's there has only been 2 champs with Roberts and now Haybale.

I may be wrong but it doesn't look like there's anyone new coming through the AMA or Supers for it to change anytime soon either

Pretty ordinary for a developed country with over 300 million people

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

I've heard different theories on the matter, but none hold much water. It seems to me that most of the young GP racers these days come up through the 125 and 250 GP series and then graduate into MotoGP (if they're lucky). It's not as common in recent years to see riders plucked from other racing series and put on MotoGP bikes. And it goes without saying the younger riders in the 125 and 250 GP series have a huge advantage as they're racing the same courses and running the same schedule as the MotoGP clan. It's an easier transition for them than an American coming over from Superbike racing who's never seen any of their courses and is completely foreign to the MotoGP scene. The bikes are too particular, the competition's too tight, and there's waaay too much money at stake. And they need to be competitive right away. They don't get a few years to learn their way around the new bikes and tracks, they have to win the first time out and every time thereafter. That's a super-human task!

I agree that moving up through the GP ranks WAS the way to go back in the 500 stroker days, but other than similar tracks the 4 bangers are just so different now I'm not sure that makes for a decent excuse.

I mean an AMA, BSB or SBK superbike would have a lot more in common with a motogp than the massive difference between it and a 250 two stroke!! Proof of that was Troy jumping off the SBK and winning the final gp round on the duke

Super human task???? What you think winning the world championship isn't a super human task
