There's definitely something very poetic about an Aussie named Stoner.

Maybe his last name should be "Boozer". Stoner seems more fitting for somebody from San Francisco.

Or So Cal.

Gotta respect a guy that is virtually running for prize money. Hope some company steps up for LRC. Casey is a great rider. Could you see him on Vales Yamaha? He podium every race.

You mean like Colin Edwards? He also podiums every race, right? Seriously, I think Stoner is the real thing. but needs to learn his limitations, although his crashes are entertaining...

Apparently you have never crashed on a race track. They are not fun nor entertaining. Everybody crashes now and again. I do agree that Casey has been a bit too aggressive at times resulting in some avoidable crashes. I do seem to remember that Nicky had a similar problem a year or two ago. He learned, let's hope Cassey does, too.



I wish him luck in the sponsorship realm.

Yeah, who was the last privateer that made it good? Whazizname?



Lots of interesting stuff out of OZ anymore. They've got a HUGE market for vintage street & mx stuff. Lots of repo itemsf like fenders, frames, etc.



Got to meet the editor from VMX mag a couple weeks ago, quality publication. Got some excellent swag.



You live in Florida right? How's the storm?

Actually, no. After a few hits of LSD Al Franken starts to make sense.
