Anybody catch the racing on speed for WSB? Is it me or is that series dead as a hammer? The series still has a few good riders but it doesnt have the same feel anymore. I actually dozed off in the first race. The commentators are even new and bland. What do you guys think? OH, and uh, think anyone will doze off thursday during the superstock race at Daytona?? Sheeeat!!

Yup...

Yeah pretty boring stuff...

Duc-a-ti this and DUC-A-TI that...bah. The only interesting part of the second race was watching the new CBR 1000 try and hang with the Duc-a-ti. The ZX10's and Yammies stayed in the back, they couldn't seem to make any headway on the 999's.

Wish Aprilia would have stayed in superbike with the new RSV...at least that would have been a little interesting.

Look forward to superstock ;)

Wish Duc would **** off and run their own series. I wonder how the FIM would respond to the factory teams running the 4 cyls. and the privateers running the twins. Probably mandate a 2 plug wire rule for the 4's. Such a biased series (not to mention the *** tires only!). Yawn.

I know its weird, Honda seems to be more interested in the AMA CBR1000RR effort. Cause I know they got the money to put that bike out front if they wanted. I guess with all the rule changes all the big dawgs are afraid of the water. Now we get to see what a factory prepped ($$$$) Ducati can do against another ($$$$) Ducati. I know what needs to be done, send a few guys from the AMA over for a race or two, kinda like a guest appearance, and see what happens.

Pretty sad that only they have made the series so pathetic with the bs tire rule that only suzuki has a "factory" team. Next they'll say only pirelli tires on Ducatis can race. No jap bikes. But really, would anyone care?

At least the AMA is still good.
