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!!!

:rolleyes:

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

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 :p :p

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 :eek: :eek:

What rags me off is the move to 800's WTF now the Gp's and supers are closer than ever before. Chuffed the supers survived the 2 stroke to four stroke GP move so well. And if nothing else Baywatch proved the rider skills aint as far apart as some GP snobs would ( like to) think.

and the last 2 GP seasons have been some of the best motor sport ever seen the Supers must be a tad worried.

They should join and hve a 125, 250, 400, 600 and 8 somethin classes. More rides more rider chances . And a whole day event on the telly
Justifies that armchair upgrade i've been looking at :twofinger

It's the schooling system Davo. They teach that it's OK to do GOOD ENOUGH ..... i.e coming first or second is nice, but it's more important to have a go and say you TRIED.

Listen to haybale of Tornado talk. They are half asleep most of the time, it takes farkin 5 minutes for them to say they had a bad practice, and when the race is about to start that say 'yeah, Iaaam goonnna goooo and give it meee best .....'

Schwantz did say he woud give his best ...he said fark all ..... but with his eyes he said he would win of farkin kill rainey trying.

I say allow banned substances like uppers and downers, steriods and coke ... and any other attitude and emoptionally bending substances to be manditory ..... ;-)

hahaha yeah I agree Ledge, it has been 2 of the best years of racing in GP but that hasn't been due to a single rider actually having a personality :D :D

I mean Biaggi was/is without doubt one of the biggest tossers of all time, but at least we had some substance with him vs team yellow.

I say bring back Gobert and his weed smoking, now there's a big personality ;)

Hang on BP, your program guide of eight different classes is oh so similar to your average local club event, talk about grass roots and old school :thumb: :thumb: I remember being able to ride in 3 or 4 classes on the same bike :p :p

Thats takin me back Dave. Remember similar club events in Europe. Rode till me, the tyres or somethin important fell off:D and loved every minute of it.

What i wanna see is combined racing. Four laps of the lake on a jet ski, 10 laps of the track in a car then another 10 on the bike.

kinda like a triathlon for petrol heads :thumb: Soon sort those poncy F1 gay boys out that would.:twofinger
