I've got my tickets for the next one in Austin
What a great race! Enjoyed every moment of it!
I've never been a particularly big Rossi fan (I like the guy, but will always cheer for someone like Hayden or one of the UK dudes, myself) but was glad to see him doing so well. I like the Marquez kid, he shows a little bit of humility despite his awesome talent, which raises him greatly in my eyes.
Lorenzo and Pedrosa, meh, I don't know. For some reason I just never could warm up to them. Not knocking their uber skills, just don't care for 'em.
psst... Marc Marquez is not famous for being humble....at least not from his style of riding and his unapologetic press conferences afterwards.
Don't take my word for it. All top riders wanted him banned last year.

I'm going by what I've seen during interviews and after races. Pedrosa and Lorenzo came across as arrogant, and Marquez didn't. *shrug*
As far as how he rides, I don't care what the other racers feel like; sour grapes for not winning, 'course they are going to complain, lol
If he gets banned for unsafe or illegal manouevers according the sanctioning body rules, then so be it, he should take his due lumps. If he doesn't, well then the other riders should try to do better, or stfu and go play badminton.
I went to Indy for the MotoGP about 3 years ago, I think, the year Pedrosa won. That place was awesome, kinda old but with all that history. We sat for awhile along that long start and finish straight during the qualifying and I know exactly what you mean. The sound resonating in those stands gives you goose bumps.I won't get it until June probably, but I ordered mine for my 2nd trip to the race at Indy.
Watching them come rippin' down the 3/4 mile straight on the first lap at 220 mph, was worth the price of admission for me.
I like the elevation changes on the Austin track. It adds another aspect to racing.
