Great race! 3 guys skating on the edge, tires shredding away... Gibernau earned it. Rossi behaved like a champ. Rossi is a champ.

Mugello could be amazing: Ducati at home, Barros well, Sete all steamed up.

Default Totally sick race!

Absolutely punked the Indy 500 snorefest for entertainment value! The wrong race was on network TV. When will motorcycle racing get some freakin' respect in the states? Sing along with me MOrons!

The last corner was insane... you can tell Rossi was going for broke there when he drifted all the way onto the grass/gravel sideways at full throttle trying to catch Gibernau. I couldn't believe he stayed on.

That last lap was "awesome", Sete and Valetino must of passed each other 4 or 5 times on that one lap alone! I don't know how they both kept control.

Default MotoGP is great

5 different bike makers in the top 10. Take that WSB. Great race better than Indy.

Yeah, 5 different bike makers. And 3 on Hondas are 1,2,3 in the standings, and Honda hasn't lost a GP race in how long? Add up all the other 4 makers WINS and then come back when they actually get one ok? Being an also-ran doesn't get the votes. By the way, no inline fours have won a thing. Take that KPaul.

Default Hu-waaaa! (In your best Bruce Lee yell)

Yes brother longride, but I fear he practices K-Pau Kook Fu!



And I just got back from a 340 round trip through the twisties of the Ozark foothills on my DR350! Talk about high cornering speeds!

Don't foreget Mugello is also Aprilia's home track. Apperently they have a new verision of the Cube motor (lighter) and a new chassis to wrap around it.



God I hope those guys get competitive. It would be awsome to see Proton, Aprilia, Honda, Yamaha, and Ducati all mixing it up. Sorry, Suzuki and Kawasaki need a lot more work.



Granted the Proton is an unknown, and the Aprilia has the potential, but a new bike for both teams 5 weeks into the season really throws some more into the mix...

Default You meet the nicest people .....

Ducati was doing well until Baylis slipped. The season is still young. Your Harley made it all the back from SD? But those twisty roads near Sturgis would be so much more fun on your Ninja. Made the mistake of going a vacation to Mt. Rushmore during Sturgis. My wife had to cover her halter top otherwise I was going to have to pull the 12 guage from the RV on some biker wanna bees. My hatred for V-Twins started then. Good thing I met the nicest people on inline 4s
