Well, as we all now know, Bayliss has 7 wins in a row. I don't know how it's going to happen, but he needs to be stopped. It's very similar to the Ben Spies situation in AMA, however, I don't mind Spies (a very young rider) winning as it's about time somebody dethrowns Mladin in AMA. However, I really wish Haga could have stayed ahead of Bayliss today at Silverstone...Bayliss is just too damn fast!

It's quite sad because the only time Walker was leading the race was the first lap; but in reality he was slowing down Haga and Bayliss that whole time as they managed to get over 4 seconds ahead of him by the 6th lap. Walker and the ZX-10R did take the wholeshot, so the 10R definitely has power as we all know, but I think it came down to the better rider (Bayliss) in the end...damn I wish Haga could win a race this year Oh well, the coolest part of the race was watching Walker ride around like a fire breathing dragon on that green machine, he was spittin' fire on every corner--some form of traction control no doubt

The coolest thing was no GSXR in the top 13 in race 1 and no GSXR in the top 5 in race 2.....domination? Only in the AMA (traction control) Superbike Races.....

My bike won masterbike...did yours?
I didn't think so...

I like Bayliss and hope he keeps winning,though it would be nice to see somebody else win it every now and then just to mix things up. Haga for sure and maybe Toseland. Im rootin for Toseland more now than I did when he rode a duc,seems like hes putting in more effort and riding harder,maybe due to lack of traction control?

Why do the Kawis keep going backwards in most races? They start off well, then slide.

IMO I'd say that the playing field is a bit more leveled in WSB as it seems that a lot more bikes appear to have traction control. Also, at least the commentators don't act all oblivious to it like the Speed guys do. I heard them make mention of it 2-3 times.
