    you have it backwards - the inverted grid in race 2 makes for at least 3 fewer napping laps than race 1.

    They're testing a new larger front along with the new 200/65 rear this weekend. And if everything works out, you can get them next year.:clap:

    Nope......I usually fall asleep about 8-10 laps after Rea hits the front and pulls away.

    Which means you fall asleep later in Race2 because it will take him more lats to hit the front and pull away when he has to work through the re-ordered grid.

    It looks like Melandri may be giving him a race this time, but hard to say as it is early in the weekend.

    Yeah, it's been a rough one. I've actually been re-watching the 2009 season while wearing my American flag Hammer pants during most of the broadcasts.

    Best season ever! Man I wonder if there is a dvd of it? I think that was the last season in sd too. Wish it had been hd!

    That's an awesome, and scary, visual, P.
    The real question is; Do you have a Crockett & Tubbs pastel shirt to go with the pants?

    Did anybody else see Melandri's wife and what she did just before she kissed him in parc fermé? Good gawd!! I about spit the cottage cheese right out of my mouth!

    Why is the Honda CBR1000 such a POS? If I were Gagne, I'd be looking for anything else to ride next year than that. It has got to be frustrating as heck for him and Camier. If the team boss is looking to place blame for poor results, he should start by looking in a mirror and then straight to Japan. That thing sucks.

    The bouncy bounce? It was nice:clap:

    I really don't like her in a hat though. It makes her hair/head look odd. Oh well, I guess that is MM's problem. :D

    I thought the same thing about the bike but it does real good in the Australian SBK series, it won the championship, somebody know how to get that bike to work down there.

    Is it something about the coriolis effect in the toilets down there?
