Golf's cool. I started playing because is meant to be a great training for accuracy and wrist shooting in ice hockey, which is actually my main sport, but I soon found myself hooked. It is an incredibly difficult sport and you need to be so focused that you are kinda forced not to think about anything else, so it kinda frees my mind. I am now a handicap of 20 so I feel kinda ok.

And even if you play shitty, which sometimes happens, you still had a 5 hour walk in a beautiful scenario so I consider it a really nice way to spend time and get a tan.

All this being said how the heck did we go from Vinales to golf??

Found this post very interesting.maybe Mack will rejoin Suzuki . Maybe Jorge will go back to what he knows and go back to Yamaha .What about Iannone? Gawd knows ;it's all speculation. I'm Just interested from my boyJorge's point of view as clearly the Ducati thing ain't working #sigh

The old saying goes it's not the women that kills you, it's chasing after it. The guy had it all and threw it away.

Maybe MV should return to Suzuki. He only really gelled with a very narrow band of performance with Yamaha.

Where is the silly season thread? It's surely an interesting rumor but I don't think Suzuki would let go Rins nor Iannone.

Rins was signed for 2 years, so he's locked up. Though before today he had 3 of 4 race crashes. Iannone may have thrown away a potential podium today, operative word: thrown. Ducati boss and Petrucci made it clear that Lorenzo is far too expensive in exchange for what he is delivering, so far headache. Suzuki have never been a team that offers big bucks, and I don’t see them starting now. Lorenzo's stock is way way down, not just performance but his behavior has been noted, rather spectacularly, he has become a hostile employee. Suzuki should be aware of the leverage they have, not to mention Ducati will point out to Lorenzo 99 cent store bargain Petrucci and Miller just beat him in a race, Miller on a year old bike. Iannone is problematic, he's inconsistent and there was reported Suzuki were not happy with his antics. With the "bar room rumor" thst Viñalez is realizing the Yamaha grass wasn't greener but rather a bit patchy yellow, this adds up to Suzuki having a strong hand at the negotiation table. Personally, I haven't been impressed with Rins, but they locked him up early and quickly. I think Suzuki are waiting to see what Ducati decide with Lorenzo. Mugello may be the straw that breaks the contract's back for Lorenzo. Ducati already have their required Italian, which makes Petrucci option B I think, if Miller performs well and agrees to a poorman's salary, he might get the nod. Mugello will be huge for Ducati's decision.

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.

Just finished reading this article. Only posting the link to show I'm not making it up hahaha


In a nutshell it says: Suzuki (Brivio) is thinking of bringing Mir to MotoGP to try to replicate the "bet" they took with Vinales back in 2015.

That'd be interesting and would mean that Suzuki is keener on young guns than on "old" glories. It would also mean that Maverick ain't gonna be going back to a lighter blue colored bike. It would also mean Iannone in Aprilia (with Redding most likely leaving MotoGP) and Lorenzo...unemployed?

Lorenzo can always get Abraham’s ride by flashing some Monster energy money.
Oh wait, Ducati. Never mind...

another thing I wonder is what'll happen with Pedrosa? I mean rumor has it he definitely will not renew his Honda contract.

Which of course brings 2 questions:

1) where would he go?
2) who would get his ass on an HRC honda then?

With HRC being a Red Bull team i doubt Lorenzo could possibly end up there since he is a Monster athlete. But who knows really
