I miss my R1
Guess the commentators weren't wrong since I think the top 5 are under Lorenzo's record
Yes they said the same about Rossi and Ago during their runs, as well as Mick. Lots of people whining. People hated Mick, hated Rossi etc. It’s like the Patriots and TB12 now. I always look at where Tom and Julian were drafted and say how can you not like these guys? The very definition of underdogs. They won the SB again this year with a bunch of no names yet everyone is hating.He's talented. Can't nobody take that away from the guy. I'm wondering if they said the same thing about Rossi, Agostini, and Doohan during their winning streaks among countless others.
It's Marquez's turn. Do I agree? Well, I don't think I have a choice here, do I? It's talent.
A few things this upcomming season is on my mind. I am looking to see what Bagnaia, Quartararo, and Morbidelli will do. Although I've never riden anything remotely close to a full factory or satellite bike, I'm sure Moto2 is a lot less rambunctious/exuberant than MotoGP....
I’m hoping Bags speed is the real deal and not just a testing thing. He didn’t even go down once during the 3 day test. I’m always rooting for VR but it may take someone younger than Marc with balls to take him down. And Bags is from the VR academy so have to root for him as well as Franco. I loathe the Spanish riders and think almost all of them are pricks so I at least want someone to take it to Marc with gusto and push the guy into failure. He’s gotten away with his riding style mostly so far but one day it’s going to bite him hard. He just hasn’t been pressured into a massive highside yet because he’s mostly got everyone’s number and can save a crash better than anyone in history. But I’ve met him like most every GP rider and he’s a prick. Man do I miss Super Sic.
I think about him often. One of his pics remains a phone screen saver since 2011 when he passed. I had only met him a couple of months before he passed. I watched the race live and saw his body lifeless on the track. It’s an image I can never get our my head. He was a f’in beast. He called Lorenzo and Stoner pussies, and referred to them as girls. He just rode like a Lion, his riding style. G damn Honda TC killed him to. The TC kicked in while the bike was low sliding and he was going down and took him into the racing line. No TC and he is still riding to this day."Man do I miss Super Sic"
same, he was a very charismatic personality
after watching MM this last couple seasons Marco doesn't seem so "aggressive" anymore
