    Gerloff needs some Danny Eslick personality schooling and Danny needs to borrow some of Garrett's speed. I was hoping he would be up there in the mix with Fong and Scholtz by now.

    Man, Cam was getting sideways on that R1. I haven't seen him that comfortable on the bike all season.

    For all the new forks they talked about the teams getting I should have sold my apple stock and bought Ohlins. :D

    Lewis went like mad. Just a few laps too many for him to get on the superbike podium but it was the best I've see him go (on TV) this season. :up:

    He checked Scholtz on the start too. Lewis got hosed by the backmarker too, he probably would have stayed in front of Elias for a couple more laps. Fong's crash was odd, usually it is a little earlier or later in that turn. Herrin was just carrying too much speed, he'd have been Ok if Rog wasn't in the way. Even on my 400 the ass end gets light going over the top there.

    I feel bad for Lewis, he had a huge gap on those two before the backmarkers, was that guy who held him up for over half a lap not getting the blue flag or what?

    Also, what the fuck is it with roadracing broadcasts and the end of races? That 600 superstock race was really fun to watch, then they show none of it the last lap and show a non-battle at the front instead. I'm glad they showed the actual racing for a bunch of laps but maybe let us see how it ends. Same thing with the 1000 race, they showed Cam on a parade lap instead of the guys behind him actually racing, I still don't know how Hayes got Lewis. How about picture in picture so they can show the winner and the action at the same time?

    Herrin is a good dude but fuck, that was some meatgrinder shit. They're both lucky to walk away.

    Even Pridmore thought it was a shitty play. He went on about it for several minutes.

    At the very least not 5-6 corners in on the very first lap in a bad spot to throw it in in the first place. I mean Herrin's 8th in points 175 back from Elias, not battling for the championship like he was back in 2013.

    Am I the only one that wants to see Gerloff and JD on the super bike grid?

    He probably had a flag and if he'd been paying attention he would have moved out of the way. It's hard to pass in that section if someone is only a little bit slower. Some of those passes in the 600 race were really really ballsy.

    Yeah, but the guy has a long established pattern of riding hairball. He shows no respect toward others. I understand there are racing incidents and at times stuf just happens but Herrin has always been a little douche at the track and in the paddock. Sorry he deserves all the criticism he gets as he created the environment in the first place.

    Que all the JH nut lickers to defend him.

    As far as his riding , I agree 100%. Well maybe not 100% but I see where you're coming from.

    Not sure what is up with the personal attack though. I don't know them all that well but hanging out at the Herrin compound Ive found Josh and his fam to be great people. So I'm assuming you got sand in your vagina over something personal with Josh. Or maybe you're talking out your ass like you usually do.

    They're obligated to show the race win, even if it's just one guy riding by himself.

    How many times have you met him?

    More than a dozen times. But it only took once. The first time to form my opinion based on his behavior.
