What a finish....

Not a bad race that, BUT what about Rossi coming in due to his cold front??? Biggest mistake he's ever made in my opinion

Just handed the title to the boy Is an amazing story, good on him and bring on Phillip Island now

Congrats to the Aussies

Well done by Stoner and the team.

However, personally would have liked the championship to be a bit closer fought. So for the championship it was good to have a new champ rider and bike, but for pure spectator interest it was a let down in my opinion. And the series is not even over yet....

So come on 2009! Enjoy it while you can GD!

ok, BP. Just for you I'll might have a peak at 2008 also

yes despite saliva pullit suggesting we skip a year, pretty good championship this year!

Top last race too. Top marks to Capriossi for the win ...finally showed he could still ride. Ducati look a bit silly now!

Showed that when it comes down to riding skills Stoner isn't the man but top marks to him too for riding the championship to the best of his ability and being consistent, with everybody spnappin at his heels. Takes a special quality to do that too.
Felt a bit sorry for him he wasn't on the podium at his world victory race but he did ride a tad like a plonka.
I'm sure the PI crowd will compensate for that ( podium not the plonka bit) Pi will be full of plonka's ! You there GD

One big downer is " Havin yer farkin mrs as yer brolly babe" what a knob!!!!!!!!!!!

So Rossi hasn;t been champ for 2 years now. Is he past it

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

Yeah what about 2008 first Silva

Casey's still on his honeymoon, hoping the wife stays at home with the kids in a year or so

You just can't bag the kid or his riding, he has been sooo good all year. Consistently winning, no more crashing and smart on the track... Hate to point out the obvious, but he could win a few over the next 5 years and they could all be a bit boring, but I'll still watch

Is that what he was carrying on about? I saw him pointing at the front end, but didn't know what his problem was.

I'm with you. He should've stayed out there and done what he could.

Yeah it's a tough call. You wanna admire the champion for smart riding all season and yet want him to fight to the finish. You just want a foursome of Rossi, Elias, Stoner and Guillotine fighting for the championship on the last lap of the last round don't ya.
Bit like the 250 race last weekend. First time i've watched 250's in a while but what a race that was ...right to the end. and best of all the lolly suckin twat jorge can't ride in the wet so was nowhere

GD do us all a favour at PI and find that Braks commentator guy and slap him really hard with somethin really heavy

I honestly have no idea what that dick wod even looks like!!!!

But if I hear anyone saying 'Rossi's on hard front and a medium rear' in that pain in the arse voice of his, I'll happily start throwing punches

Really looking forward to the ride down and back (is 1.5hrs or so for me door to track) and usually there are bikes and people waving everywhere, sounds like all the record crowd numbers could be broken this year though

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

Just go round and club everybody carrying a microphopne. The chances of you clubbing a good un are zero

What else is there if your not on the track BC

Funny story, the last track day I did at P.I I figured it was only right to wheelie down the road leaving the circuit (bit of a custom down there)happened to be a nasty cross wind that day and on touch down the old girl almost shook me off - had to use the extra washing machine cycle that night
