Nothing about the new fairings? Nothing about Jorge leading the first laps, and finishing way down?

What happened to our interest in racing?

I just got to watch it this morning, but in truth I didn't think there was much to talk about..

Not making an excuse for Jorge but not having the other bike ready wasn't helping..

Had a fire in my living room yesterday.....satellite receiver had a melt down. Woulda been opposite Baja though so I wouldn't have watched it. Highlights on you tube I suppose.

I won't watch GP or WSBK on purpose anymore. Maybe catch the highlights. TT is so much more interesting as well as AMA. No big berms and protective barriers, just man, machine and flirting with disaster.

Looked very similar to last years race where Marc had come in early and changed to slicks.

Marquez made a good decision to switch to slicks early but he had no choice really, he was going backwards. The Yamaha team were late pitting again and the Ducati mob had their pants down. Lorenzo looked quite good early on but his team blew it for him. It was quite good to see Vinales, and Rossi carve their way to the front. Pedrosa was fast too, good Honda track.

Cheers
