Default Re: Bostrom and Ducati are Faster than Haga and his Yamaha

Lap times during testing mean nothing.. when it comes to race day is when it counts.. Just ask Bostrom last year at this same track when he got took by Haga in Race 2. Lets face it.. Superbike is crap now and GP's is where its at.. There isnt a single rider in WSBK that is really worth tuning into speedvision to watch... but check out GP's.. they have Haga, Rossi, McCoy, Biaggi, Checa, Abe, Roberts, Walker, Criville, Capirossi, etc..

Default You fool

You are dictating that a bike with less horsepower is a "lesser bike" I can show you plenty of tracks where a 250 will be faster than a GP500 or Superbike.



There's more to racing than the straightaways buddy.

Default Criville worth watching?

Buddy, if you believe everyone thinks Criville, Capirossi Abe and Checa are worth tuning into you are mistaken. In fact even Roberts Jr, bless his soul is kinda on the boring side as a rider and personality. McCoy, spectacular as he is puts me to sleep in interviews.Biaggi and Checa havn't done shyt for 2 years. There are some good guys in Gp (Rossi, Haga McCoy etc) but Wsb has good guys too, like Bayliss, Edwards, Hodgson, Xaus and yes, Bostrom. Enjoy both series man, cuz with 6 billion people on earth there is enough great riders out there for both series.

Ok, so Criville is a putz.. but I didnt even mention Nakano and Jacque.. Lets face it.. nobody in WSBK is as exciting to watch as Haga, McCoy, Rossi... Corser.. boring, Bayliss, boring.. Edwards.. snore.. Chili.. ok, Bostrom.. ok.. other than that.. who has chance at the title now that Fogarty and Haga are out? And who watches racing for the interviews? And next year when they have the 4 strokes in GP? All those riders and all those bikes? WSBK's days are numbered.

Oh come on now, there are plenty of interesting racers to watch in any MC racing series. There's always plenty of passing, and great last minute action.



Or do you just think it isn't worth watching because Yamaha pulled out of WSBK (Mr. Demon R1).



I think AMA 600 racing is more exciting than most superbike racing, because there is rarely somebody running away early in the race (which does happen pretty often in SBK and 500GP).



What really makes GP more exciting, is not the caliber of the competition, but the volatility of the machines themselves (highest power to weight ration, and hardest to ride).

I f you noticed the 125 times were better than the 500's, thats not saying there a faster or better bike. Just like some races in the Superbikes, the 600's have better times, its more of an indicator of track type NOT the bike configuration. If you ever ride a 2stroke you know the power! Just relax and Enjoy them all

It's easy to criticize a racer from a comfy easy chair, it's hard to do what [i]any[/b] of them do. But since one has to race at some level to realize this, you're forgiven. Personally, I'd give my left nut to ride like any one of the Bostrom brothers...

I don't care what machine is the hardest to ride. Who's the fastest? The point of the highest levels of racing (cars, or any motorsports) is that they should be clearly and substantially faster than "production" based machinery. To me F1 car racing can be somewhat boring because of the lack of passing, but the clearly faster lap times, amazing technology and ferocious speeds makes up for it. The supposed highest level of motorcycle roadracing is GP bikes, and they should spank WSBK, any track, any time.
