Voted for World Superbike.

Love watching the GP boys but voted WSBK because I can relate to those bikes better. The GP stuff is all prototype machinery. I think it's great that years from now the technology may trickle into street bikes but World Supers gives me a chance to watch guys race something at least close to what I can buy off the showroom floor today.

Cool AMA Rocks the Cashbar

I voted for AMA. I think it's a fair way to judge the manufacturer's bikes. I mean most of these bikes are tweaked to an un-human, mind-boggling level that few "everyday" riders can achieve, but it's cool to know that you can buy that championship winning GSX-R750 or RC51 or YZF-R1 in stock form at the local dealer (assuming your insurance can handle you).

I think this poll might be better at seasons end as we'll then know how motoGP has gone. So it's World Supers for me right now.

I am shocked. I can not believe that AMA superbike has more votes than Moto GP right now. 14 to 13.

I voted AMA because, let's face it, right now AMA is the least predictable(GP still up in the air due to new rules). In WSB, it is very likely that Bayliss will win and Colin, Haga and Bostrom will be battling behind him and the occasional good showing by Zaus and Hodgson.

Two of the podium positions were just about always going to be Rossi and Max.

AMA you just never know aside from Mladin and I think the gap is closing on Mladin.

As mentioned this will be a better one for the end of the season.

I voted purely based on which one I enjoy watching on TV the most. Too me the WSB coverage can't be beat....This weekend I watched all three series', and the WSB round at Kylami(sp?) had me glued to the TV. I even taped it a watched it again the next day. I find it's really well produced, and the way they use the on-bike cameras and everything, just makes for exciting TV.

I really don't know which I would say is my favourite series, (I'm a Canadian Superbike fan too, and I follow the BSB a bit), but WSB makes for the best TV IMHO.

I voted WSB....and the Monza race just goes to confirm it. The racing is usually more exciting than GP (and we don't get the AMA series in OZ).
MotoGP is getting predictable now, and I think it will be until Yamaha and Suzuki get their sh*t together.
And the fact that I'm a Bayliss fan keeps me glued to the SBK series.

I think the gay waiter wants to push my stool in!!

Argghhhh! My VCR fooked up taping the race and they aren't repeating it here until tommorow afternoon on Speed Channel. I'm gonna have all 4 VCR's in the house taping it this time. I couldn't help but sneak a peek at my WSB fantasy pool, and from what it looks like I have a pretty good idea who won (Since I'm in first place now ), but if it's was exciting as you say, knowing the winner won't detract from watching the race.
