How so?

You're reading his article and not the other way 'round...or you could only look at the picture 'cause you cant read and your comment was written by your sister who's also your mother? Go back behind your trailer and keep shootin' those beercans...

Default I like Despain

I agree that his race announcing skills are hit and miss. But I think he's a great ambasador for motorsport in general and I love his news and travel pieces, when he isn't covering races. His voice doesn't bother me, which is peculiar, because normally announcer voices are quick to get under my skin. "Hey that's SUPER! thanks for calling! Next up, a 4 hour non-stop block of Barry Manahole!"

Speaking of fame & fortune......what do the factory riders in Superbike get, ball-parkish in terms of salary, win bonus, endorsement cash????

John Burns is the best move you have made to date. I know he might not be very fast, but he makes readers smile.

Austin er Aston your are a dork. The guy is right and you know it. Burns is a lazy butt that needs to get off the couch and do some leg work to get a real stoey

Once again Burns lowers the average IQ of MO readers. Burns is lazy.

Default Burns is a slacker

Finally some sanity. Thanks 1oldgeorge. Sadowski is my favorite guy. The WSB and GP guys don't tell you what the rider is doing and why. Sadowski makes me think about what the rider and bike are doing. Brian is hard worker more than I can say about the slacker Burns.
