    I just saw a post on FB, looks like the California Superbike School just got a bunch of Ducati V4 Panigales!

    Hate to say it, but, McGuiness' best days are quite possibly behind him. ;-(

    That's what they've been telling Tom Brady the last five years. LOL

    You don't end up on a Norton because you have a lot of teams beating your door down to offer you rides. No idea how Tom Brady and football have anything to do with road racing, but if it works for you, have at it.

    I guess you don't watch football. They been telling Tom he's too old to win for a long time. The analogy is John's to old but I believe he will win in certain categories fairly regularly. I don't think he's quite done yet. Dunlop and hutch are definitely the guys the beat.

    Don’t get in the top 10 at the TT unless your good. In fact if my memory serves me right it was either 3 or 4 finishes in the top ten. Highest was 6 th and achieving an average lap of 130 mph.

    Ill be keeping a close eye on Hickman and Harrison too.

    Well bad night for my man Roczen— hopefully not out for the season after his horrific injury to his arm last year.
    Arm went between the wheel and swing arm of Cooper Webs bike

    This time it was his other arm and not the surgically repaired one.

    Racing has been a lot better this season for the most part.

    No, I don't watch football. Stick and ball sports are fetch for humans. I would watch a guy bass fish or BBQ, before I would consider watching a stick and ball sport. But I do watch me some 2 wheel racing and follow it pretty closely, and I call 'em like I see 'em.

    Jorge Lorenzo will have to take a pay cut to stay with Ducati in 2019.

    https://www.autosport.com/motogp/news/134365/ducati-warns-lorenzo-he-faces-a-pay-cut

    So far in testing he is doing better, but, it might be another case of starting out good, then falling behind... He earns €12,000,000+ right now and had a bad year, Dovi earns €2,000,000 and almost won the championship.

    Dovi will be getting a well deserved pay raise.

    Dovi must need to whine more.
