Yes, I was thinking of you today. The weather looked like it couldn't have been better for an outdoor event.Ya I was just thinking in a decade when Marquez has 8 championships ill at least be able to say I was there for his first win! The track is awesome and really big. I think I have walked 10 miles this weekend to see around the whole track. It feels like it never ends walking around it
Guilty as charged, lolyou must be a BORING OL FART.
I was lucky enough to have been at Silverstone for the famous Sheene/Roberts battle. I was probably one of the few British guys shouting for King kenneyGuilty as charged, lol
I still watch it of course, but to me, "true" GP500 racing was roughly 1975-ish to 1994-ish. (there's always some leeway there for timeline, of course, but for me personally, those were my Golden Years of enjoyment.
Sheene, Roberts, Spencer, Lawson, Rainey, Schwantz, Mamola, Shobert, Baldwin, Gardner, etc. Doohan at the very tail end.
My interest pretty much disappeared once the two strokes were changed to 4 strokes. (which is incredibly ironic, because my all time favourite motorcycle ever, was Honda's NR500...)
To me, Rossi---->forward, they were/are all "new guys" that I have no interest or "cheer for" feelings.
*shrug* /old boring dood.
You were right it took Marc a wholev 2 races to settle inall very well doing getting good position in practice.
wait till the real race start that is when the pressure comes in.
when pedrosa 1st came into gp's same thing was said and it took him how long??
as for Marky boy he'll come off a few times before he'll settle in.
I very much doubt Rossi will win the championship maybe second or third.
its either jorgy or peddy boy.
don't forget Rossi is bigger and heavier than some of this younger guys inc jorgy.
stand just over 6 ft tall does Rossi.
Rocker why not Rossi??
