    Was telling my wife last night how this past silly season might be some of the craziest, or at least most unexpected, rider swaps I can recall. Marc leaving Honda, Marini leaving his brother's team for an entirely different manufacturer, Rea leaving Kawi, and Toprak leaving Yamaha. Pretty nuts.

    Also, Let's Goooooo!!! So stoked that racing is back.

    Perhaps the best racing of all series, and this year has tremendous potential and interesting story lines. You could come up with a lot of combinations for the top 10.

    Maybe you have a diamond but I get the feeling her response was "Yes dear, Uh huh dear, whatever you say dear" while not really caring one bit about MC racing.

    That's at least 50% true. She has gotten into certain riders as we watch various shows, interviews, etc. so she does take an interest in some aspects. E.g. she despises Yamaha right now because she's a big Fabio fan and feels like Yamaha is ruining his career lol. But to your point, I'm sure she had mild interest at best for only the first half of that convo, which then turned into zero interest by the end lol.

    What is it with chicks and guys named Fabio? I just don't get it

    Is the schedule a day behind, for example its friday there but is the practice really happening on Thursday est? Cant wait for thus to start, i think there are plenty of contenders up and down the paddock.

    Um it’s in Australia is why. They are 16 hours ahead. So 8pm tonight is already noon tomorrow.

    Toprak with a new lap record. Going to be a great season, so far it seems like the bmw is the missing piece he needed to beat Bautista.

    Trainwreck I could give a heck

    I love how the first WSBK round is always at a track where you have to have gigantic balls to be fast. "Welcome back MF'ers." It's like the Nelson Ledges of pro motorcycle racing. lol
