I would pay $100 on pay per view to see that race, and I would root for Bayliss every second. Rossi represents as a snotty little snit with unquestionable talent and not a shred of humility and a boatload of ego. Bayliss, on the other hand, is a hard working, down to earth guy who got where he is with hard work and the support of his family. Bring it!

You can be the new GMP. I hear there is an opening.

I'm not the new GMP, but I play it on TeeVee. What's a GMP?

You weren't here during the Great Motorcycle Puke days? Wow! Thought you were here before me.

Onward- If Rossi gets a Yamaha seat in Qatar and Troy un-retires (for fun and glory, of course) it would make quite the spectacle. I'd wager on the Duc if Troy is on the front Row. If he starts 2nd row or back I'd bet that Rossi could adjust his riding style on the superbike and beat him with just a couple of laps to go.

Default Mac vs Borg?

..on the objective end-
Advantage B.,on his familiar scoot.
Disadv for R., on an unfamiliar scoot.
Given that a whole race with other riders will take place, ill be shocked to see a podium for Vale.
I would pay $100 to see a B VS R contest with both on control bike/tyres, no one else on track.

Actually a few guys would be nice:
Rossi, Bayliss, Spies, Mladin, Shakey Byrne from BSB and Scassa on his new ride. These six guys on Corse equipment running a full out 20 lap shoot-out would make for great pay-per-view. I'd pay $30 for that 45 mins.

Be nice watching Mladin having is smug-a$$ handed to him by the Champions of racing.

Talking

I prefer things the way they are in my head now. I don't want to see a one off race that might have an impact on my reality.

Don't forget to send me the link.

But aside from my tenuous grip on my reality, if WSBK gets the rights to this race you, those of us living in NA, probably won't get to see it till the following Tuesday anyway.

That would be outstanding; eliminate all the variables except rider skill. They'd have to find a track where neither had the advantage as well.

Nope. I'm sure of it because I recall wondering WTF your screen name meant.
