*Spoiler* MotoGP

You gotta give it up to Marco for getting the ZX-RR to 6th place at Motegi. Not even having a teammate to get info from, and been doing it all alone on a bike that was pretty much headed to the scrapyard of Kawasaki wasn't forced by Dorna to field it. He was even up to 5th I beleive at one point proving it can compete, at least for a little while. While not perfect, it is FAR from where Kawi was the last few years. If he keeps it up maybe Kawasaki will reconsider and put some money into their program.


Props to you Marco!

That's what I meant, geez I'm such a dork. I knew that and still wrote that he finished 10th. I guess I was focused on the points. Thanks for pointing that out for me.

Changed.

I know we are only 2 races in but it really makes you want Kawasaki to stay out there.He's doing so good hopefully they can pick up more sponsors,maybe keep going next year.
I'll say this to, the Duc is starting to look more and more like a one man bike.They've said it before but did carry much weight.Now you see Melandri doing good and Hayden's having a hard time with it.For Nicki's sake hope he gets it straightened out.

Marco felt good on the Kawi the first time he tested it. And being that hes got a lot to prove, hes pushing that thing for all its worth. I agree, I hope that Kawi pulls their head out of their ass and helps the man out this season with R&D funds.

Adds to the theory that the Duck is only fast for Stoner.

Props to Marco, I've always been a fan.

i hope he does good so Kawi can realize how fucking gay they are being by pulling out. there is NO green bike out there this year (even though Marco's bike is a Kawi).

Damn straight, man can really push a bike, sometimes beyond it's limits and still be in total control.

At its core, the Ninja ZX-10R is a motorcycle built for the accomplished rider who can fully appreciate its capabilities--whether put to the test at a racetrack, or merely the focus of bench-racing conversation. It is, by all standards, the embodiment of the ultimate superbike.
