-18 MotoGP Season

Hey there,
Wowzer to more excitement around the GP garage!!!!
1) As a major Rossi fan....boooo to Yamaha to not fixing the M1 completely. The bike still has hook-up problems.
2) Boooo to Honda....Marquez pi$$e$ me off..... :/
3) Woot to KTM for their aggressiveness on starting up a new team next year. Bold move Herve P.
4) Woot to Franco Morbidelli for his accomplishments.


I am "really" hoping that some how Rossi could pull off another title....but.....
Zarco is my new guy.....after Rossi retires. And I'm looking forward to getting to know Morbidelli.
I'm hoping the best for Andrea Iannone and Scott Redding. They could use a break.


Question: Dani Padrosa....Honda.... Dani is an awesome rider. Dani has problems getting/keeping heat in his tyres during races. Why doesn't Honda add weight to Dani's bike to allow him to get more weight on board and hook that rear tyre up? It seems strange to me to stay with one rider for soooo many years and watch him struggle with the same issue year after year and not get the problem fixed. Does anybody have any deeper thoughts on this subject?


Let's drop the flag and start racing............ )

I'm not paying that much to see the races, either to buy the MotoGP pass, or upgrade to Gold Package on Spectrum so I can get BeIN. Just not worth that much money.

Pretty much agree dead on with ya, Koda. Mainly, go Rossi! But it will be tough. Marquez is just **** good, and as a young guy, riding beyond the edge much of the time. I don't know why, but I do like to see the Ducati group doing well also. Still, go Rossi!

I just want a season that sees 3 or 4 riders who can win the championship going into the last race. Also hoping there are several races with controversy, temper tantrums, dramatic passes, new faces on the podium and many changes for the lead. And if Rossi can win the championship, then that will be the icing on the cake. If not him, then someone on a non-factory team who beats Marquez in a fight to the finish line in multiple races: Petrucci, Crutchlow or Zarco maybe. Is that too much ask for.

As long as Lorenzo never gets near the podium, I will be happy.

Zarco is amazing! I watched him in Moto2 but he is better in GP than he was in 2. That is surprising, most have a lag moving into the big boys race, not Zarco! Would like to see him on a Yamaha, if they can only fix their issues, they will. Only adds to the drama!
