    Bautista is just better at the moment. Might end up like Foggy, but I doubt it.

    For anyone interested ?
    I take it Damon Rees is the fastest we have nowdays ?
    Aussie was always a tougher nut to crack.

    You'd never go hungry with Nigella Gaz.
    If it weren't for flashbacks...I'd have no memory at all..

    Damon and Mitch are at the point end. Scott Moir, one of the Hoogy boys, and Sloan are there or there abouts.
    Shane Richardson is better than all of them, hense he's racing in England and the States.

    cheers Drew, Remember Richardson's dad or Uncle in older days and saw Shane was doin something in the USA. Local stuff has dropped off on Kiwibiker and thats the only medium I look at here.
    Not much Interest in the last NZsbk round either on KB (maybe elsewhere ?).

    You not read england good?

    In ASBK classes!

    Clearly the junior classes rate no mention over here cos no one actually gives a flying fucq, but over there they are giving them plenty of airtime and are investing in junior development.

    They take their racing seriously in Costa Rica too. This resulted in a couple of two year bans.

    That went Viral LOL was a bit of a laugh till they took it onto a live race track.
    On a Motorcycle you're penetrating distance, right along with the machine!! In a car you're just a spectator, the windshields like a TV!!

    that young lad is going to be a real loss to solo bikes but he is certainly a talented young fella, been watching him come up through the ranks at Oreti park.
    lots of local pride in Cormac.

    I see the huge French lad " Baz " has signed with Ten Kate Yamaha,wonder how he will go ?

    Didn't go too bad in his last few rides on the Kawa 10 before going GP as I recall ??

    Some hereabout seem to dislike a rider or riders. Usually I like everybody but Baz may just be an exception, I didn't much admire his behaviour a few seasons back.

    I suppose I went off Hector Barbera when he reportedly smacked his missus too.

    Pleased to see Ten Kate back. Honda moving their support to another team hasn't done much for them so far. It's early days but their bike is not getting any younger.

    The recent SKY HD upgrade has affected the recording of SBK, if you had it set to record automatically you've probably lost that setting and will need to set it again.

    I have normal Sky not the 'my Sky' you'll have seen them giving us practice etc etc .Bautista reeled off a fast lap that was well clear and then Lowes of all people closed it to .5 of a second. No matter lets wait for the racing !!!!!

    did Baz upset someone ? I know he refused to back off for Sykes at one stage,is that why he moved teams ?
    I didn't know about Barbera ??

    enjoy the racing !!! I like Aragon as a track.

    Baz took out team mate Sykes in a race. Baz said "Racing incident" Sykes had a hissy fit and refused to speak to or acknowledge the existence of Baz the rest of the season.
    Baz refused to move over in one race and moved over (big theatrical style) in a later race.

    Baz is a top lad in my book.

    have the Ducatis been knocked back a few hundred rpm?.There must be a few people in the motogp paddock surely who rue not picking up Bautista.
