    $209 is a fraction too much on my current lumpy income to lose commentators though

    MotoE's all lost to fire it seems

    Just seen a post from a mate at Jerez. Seems that the facility with all the MotoE bikes in it caught fire overnight.
    All the bikes have been lost, it seems.

    Not fun. That will probably cancel MotoE for 2019 if not for 2020 also.

    This just after the post about the first day of testing at Jerez.

    Yeah there was a comment that they might lose a couple of rounds. The original item I saw was in Spanish, apparently the fire was in Jerez after all. The translation wasn't very clear but referred to damage in millions: bikes, charging equipment, the lot. Probably quite toxic as fires go too.

    It'll be God's fault.

    Mat Oxley commented overnight on those underbone scooters they race in Asia. 150cc four strokes, they hit 175kph at Sepang.

    Watched the highlights on TV3 this arvo. Yes, a excellent race, may the season continue in the same manner as I'd like to see MM toppled.

    Side note - Rossi (I'm a fan) did a fantastic job of shredding a significant number of the field. Either he was riding 11/10ths or the Yammy has improved.

    Watch this space.

    from the sounds of it he doesnt share your enthusiasm with the bike.Seems to have much the same issue as last year.Mav can make it go fast when he is on his own but as soon as other riders are around him and he has to change from sweeping lines he suffers.VR could well have been another few places back if not for the misfortunes of Quatararo,Bagnaia and Miller

    Looks like he should have stayed with Ducati then

    Brand loyalty of viewers at this level of racing intrigues me given the bikes are so far removed from anything we can purchase in the shop.

    Mind you having said that your 2019 top end models are carrying electronics packages etc that were on the grid just a few years back. My new in 2015 bikes single colour electronic instrument display looks positively oldschool compared to the pretty new graphics.
