I agree. Colin is one Hell of a guy, on, as well as off, the track. I really like his no bull$hit attitude. In spite of what some consider to be rough edges, he has always been a real class act. The kind of sportsmanship he and Bayliss both showed last season is a great model that a few other riders I can think of could emulate!



MotoGP is gonna be effin' great next year, with several new riders as well as new teams which should keep Rossi honest. I am a big Rossi fan, and I probably would not bet much money against his repeating for the championship, but I would bet that it is no runaway like last year.

I agree with your comments about Rossi. Given the competive spirt of Edwards and Bayliss if their bikes don't fail them Rossi probably won't dominate.

Default Snobbery will get you nowhere!

Glad you all had a chance to glimpse the down-to-earth-tell it-like-it-is-regular-guy side of Colin. One more very good reason to root him on this year. Believe me, if Colin had wanted champagne and caviar for lunch, we would have been "dining" at Chaya. The fact is he was in the mood for Mex and Maggies (OK so he did order a "Cadillac" Margarita) so that's what we had! Believe it or not these rich guys occasionally eat something other than fish eggs!

Just tell us when you'll be home Jordan and we'll be over with a Goldwing and a trailer to pick up our slightly used new TV. Thanks bruddah! You da man!

I dunno, my impression is that Colin would call the finest Beluga caviar; "Bait"

"...admit that you're not even as fast as Colin in your dreams. "



Hah! Back a half decade or so ago, I had better lap times at Texas World Speedway than Colin!



Of course, I was racin' my old Hawk and he was just hangin' with some of his old buds, butt...

You missed the most important question, what is Colin's XBOX MotoGP user name! That way, it won't be so bad loosing to a real champ (instead of some spoiled teenager).

Awesome. Content like this, (and the Ludington and Foggy stuff in the past--off the top of my head), while probably less visited on the site, I appreciate quite a bit. Thanks.
