No wonder he was nicknamed both Carlos "Chubby" Checa and Carlos "Crash" Checa by the European press...



He's not as chubby as he used to be (I doubt if his chubiness had anything to do with his frequent past crashes), and the jury's still out on his 'crashworthiness'...





He's still a blast to watch though! Hopefully, Yamaha will sort out the gremlins (horsepower deficit?) and put out a competitive bike for him and Biaggi - not that it's not competitive but early testing shows they got some work to do.

I think the whole loose feeling of a 2 stroke upset Checa the same way engine braking of a 4 is screwing with Biaggi.

I heard his nickname was "Careless Chucker."

Probably they'd be bidding for Rossi and Aoki if they were Afghani Taliban.

It seems to be hard for North Americans though... Maybe if everyone on line right now bought a WSB race replica? Just those from the USA?

Default Who's not paying attention?

Lincoln, surely you jest! Of course I have been paying attention! I wrote "banter" not "press release"(are you paying attention?).



I was only referring to the fact that the posted comments on MO after the races where 2 strokes win, some people are always trashing four strokes. If anything, I was being lenient calling that banter, as it is rarely done teasingly or good naturedly.



You need to either read more carefully, take one of JB's Paxil, or just step away from the keyboard until you've cooled off and think things through a bit, before you attack others and their remarks. Be cool.

Nah, that's Jeff George's name in the NFL.
