Pretty boring race, again. Good battle between the zuks, which are really doing well. Michelin couldnt find anything, again. And Rossi was out with an engine failure.

gotta agree was a snoozefest of a race again!!! I even went out walking my dog before it finished. At lap 9 or so it looked good as Vermin was catching Stoner but after that it went all too predictable again. Props to Casey as he's proving to be a fantastic rider & has all year.... BUT... EVERYONE ELSE GET YER FINGERS OUT CUZ MOTO GP IS BORING!!!!!! change the tyre rules or engine size... whatever, just give us a race that lasts till the checkered flag:ayyy:

Yes, GP is boring right now. Stoner and the Duc are on fire....must be all that good lovin' from his new hot wife.:wink:

I find myself getting into the AMA Supersport races more than ever. Watch the 600 in AMA or World for good tight racing.

Superbike is not much better than GP.....what Mladin and Spies have a 8 second lead again on their zuks.....yawn. Fun watching Hacking mix it up back in 3rd though. Getting Hacking was a smart move for Kawi for sure and I hope to see him closer to the front on the 10 next year.

I think 08 will be better as the teams will have more data to work from, I also think Michelin has lost interest in racing & won't be as involved so more teams will switch to Bridgestone.... & I'll have JT to shout for as well as VR:mrgreen:

True enough, like I said Michelin just don't seem to have the same attitude or resources they used to have, hopefully 08 will see a more level playing field & JT will run away with the title:thumbsup: lol, if he gets regular top 6 in his 1st year I'll be well happy:ayyy: & if VR & others have a decent set of tyres under them as well as a decent bike, we'll see great races in moto gp again & we'll all live happily ever after & all that:badteeth:

Be interesting to see how JT goes with his SBK background vs the 250 style of others and if he needs to adjust his style any.

Cant wait till everyone has to play by the same rules.( And I own a Duc.) Kawi should put more $$ for top riders.

yup, 3 wins for VR.. jerez, mugello & assen. I think JT will surprise a few, this year he has really come of age in sbk & some of his passing has been top notch, if he can take that to moto gp he'll do well imo

I don't think Rossi was ever points leader this year. Stoner ran away early.

I don't think that the 250 riding style is so important. Many have claimed that it's required for the newer less powerful machines, but Hopkins doesn't ride with a 250 style, and I think that Nicky has proven that if you dial back the electronics a bit, you can ride them more like a SB.

If it were up to me, I'd force the manu's to dump any and all forms of traction control. This would show us who really belongs in the top class, and who should be riding mopeds in a parking lot somewhere. F1 has finally seen the light and banned T.C. for 08', hopefully MotoGP wont be far behind.
