    Honda must really be offering a lot to entice someone who is riding a winning machine and hop on their lack luster bike. Have to wonder what they have up their sleeve.

    A buddy of mine playing with a 360 camera that you can tell it where to look while editing, pretty cool. I have done some sessions on his R1, I really like it.

    Yeah, even Marquez gave him props! I think those two will be going at it more and more in the immediate future. He seems to be doing what the other Yamaha riders aren’t, well maybe except for MV but even he had a rough go at it this last race.

    Just read that KTM released Zarco of any riding responsibility the rest of the season and put Kallio on his ride for the remaining races.

    Yeah the win in Moto3 was awesome! Rather touching as well, considering the circuit they were on.

    Moto2 is looking like there’s some good racing ahead, the championship lead isn’t as one sided as MotoGP is at the moment.

    The MotoE racing is weird to watch, the lack of engine roar is still needing to get use to but pretty decent for such short races, sort of like the sprint races in WSBK.

    That win in Moto3 was special in many ways, the team were beyond ecstatic, so good to see that result

    The pile up in MotoE looked awful until they either stood up or in one case, carried on ..it is strange the noise or rather lack of

    seems that Johan Zarco will not be racing at this weekend, KTM have let him go earlier than originally planned, who will replace him I wonder?

    Rumours about Bautista are flying, he may join a European team, maybe with Haslam, maybe a Moriwaki team or maybe Haslam to Moriwaki alone ....if it wasn’t for Forres in BSB they’d have a blank year

    Jack Kennedy took his second consecutive championship in the supersport class with a convincing win over Brad Jones on Saturday in a 12 lap sprint race

    Both were riding the Colin Appleyard/Integra Racing Yamahas, Kennedy was drifting the rear of the bike into the corners, a real class act
