Ooooh, I gotta get it. I keep forgetting to order the DVD. Someone remind me again in a couple of days. I'll probably forget again.

Well, I think that should suffice.

Chris, I just ordered the DVD from the site. They claim 2-4 weeks for delivery. I am itching to see it. How long did it take for yours to arive?

I don't think any (sport) biker will be disappointed if they buy the dvd, but at the risk of being a whiner I've got a couple of (opionated) points to make:



1. It's kind of like a NASCAR film - crash footage seemed equal to race footage.



2. The part about John Hopkins wasn't very interesting - I thought the film would be more about 500GP racing, not what a shining star an American rider seemed to be when he was just a kid.



3. I watched it on my laptop with crummy speakers (no TV) so I may be wrong, but there didn't seem to be much in the way of cool 2-stroke exhaust noises.



I'm not trying to put anyone off buying it - I certainly feel it was worth the money - it's just that the previous comments seem to be just a tad over the top. I've rented videos of specific 500cc races several years ago, when Schwantz and Wayne Gardner were competing, that I thought were a lot more impressive - the crispness of the image seemed to be a lot better. On the other hand, hearing Rossi's opinion of what it was like to ride the 500 for the first time was pretty cool.



Your mileage, as always, may vary.

I hear you. I thought there was to much crash focus in the first half. More race footage would have been better. But, what I thought made up for it was the riders expressing themselves on what it's like to race MotoGP. Just like you said, Rossi describing his first ride on a 500 was cool. The interview with Rossi and Biaggi right after they had their little fisticuff in the stairwell was the best.



What are some of the other videos you mentioned? Might like to rent/buy them.

I'm obviously not Chris, but mine took about 4 weeks.
