He knew it, and that's why he never went to either, and his over-inflated ego would have never handled THAT. He was busy lapping the has-been's, never-were's, and never-will-bee's here in the states and acting like a complete pr!ck the entire time. And what a wonderful spokesman he was for AMA racing. He complained that the other riders sucked, the tracks sucked, and the whole AMA organization sucked........yet he never left. He did drive away just about every fan that was interested in racing to the point that even the AMA cried Uncle. Mat Mladin is a fantastic example of how someone can be a bad winner. How's that Ace?
I see you are one of those guys who "hates racing" too.

Well, thank heaven that AMA Roadracing has at least one loyal supporter. Maybe there is another one somewhere. Oh yeah. Moke. That makes 2. Three? Is there another one somewhere? (crickets)

Well next year may actually be fun to watch instead of the Matt show. Though I'm sure DMG may throw another wrench into it somehow.

I think WSB in your hood is going to be permanent for me. This year was fun and pretty cheap in comparison to Moto GP at Laguna. My five days in UT including 1400 miles of gas was about the same as 3 days in Monterrey. Of course I'll still go to Infinion when the DMG boys come round and laguna for Moto GP. Now how can I work in Indy...

It's something we've talked about here, but it seems like VerticalScope, the owners, don't want to bother with any sort of retail operation. I'll continue to talk up the idea. Good to know there's a few of you who would throw down money for 'em!

That's cuz they're Canadian and have the queen on their money.

I never love the queen more than when her face is on a thick stack of bills!

Default yowza..

Didnt see this coming.
Rossi VS bunch o guys who can beat him in 2010.
Yama kinda like Ben, no? Good for Edwds keeping his seat by turning 09 into, "beat Jimmyboy." Maby karma shows itself for some.

Ill take 5 t-shirts. 3 white, 2 black.
Those from Canada undermine the value of t-shirts cuz afterall- whats the big deal about the layers you hafta wear under your flannel?
