What's the reg? I had one in 1974 so it may have been mine! ( old )

For the time I think it was absolutely brilliant.

Nah, never seen such a queue at Rykas before. I'm normally there much earlier so I'm not used to it
We'd given up at The Chalet for the same reason.

Bloody fair weather motorcyclists! Laughing

Aye ...some cracking racing between Marquez and Rossi ( who says the ol boy is done?) and such a shame Bradley came a cropper, i see Ducati still havnt got themselves in order with Cal having to ride his socks off to remain in the numbers, apparently his electronics went off with a malaysian airplane and was reporting him to be anywhere on the field but where he was, on the last corner the bike thought he was in the first turn and when he was in 2nd gear the bike thought he was in 6th and on the last lap it died in the last corner but refired in pit lane mode....kudos for finishing where he did

Yep, great start to MotoGP. Pity Lorenzo went out, and Pedrosa not quite up with them. We'll done Bradley Smith, proving those doubters wrong! Just stay upright and some great results are coming.

As for doubters, I'm glad to say I may have been wrong about Rossi. But we need to see that sort of performance consistently before I'm convinced.
