I think George has another win in him this year.
Probably not this weekend though.

Track and atmospheric conditions which suit a soft tire he will win again.

I hope he has another win in him I kinda hope that this magical fuel tank is the answer to all his problems and he now returns to the metronomic identi-laps. Someone here said he was like the ghost rider from some game I can't remember the name of, ha, that's accurate.

In actuality, I think it has helped enormously. He is one of those that needs everything 'just so'. My horse is like that - I think he's autistic. If everything happens exactly as he thinks it will, he's awesome. If something odd happens, or he gets his tea half an hour early or late, his sky caves in and he loses all his confidence.

I'm excited to see him on the Honda next year. I think going back to a Yamaha, especially a satellite one, would have seemed very 'tail between the legs'. Plus they never gave him his WC party lol so fukem

Mondays of a GP week are always a huge excitement to me. It will feel like a horribly long week and by Thursday I won't know what day it is and will keep looking for the FPs, wondering why I can't find them. This happens to me every GP week and I don't learn.


By the way, I am a girl. A very small but quite old one I have a bike licence and did have a baby blade for a good while. It was far too fast or me and it was only a matter of time till I fell off - I did, but quite slowly. Sold it before I fell off it quicker I have an oldish R32 now which I think is the nuts. I adore it. My husband has several bikes knocking around, in various stages of build. He builds customs, fixes and does up harleys and does all the cool stuff like making his own brackets and exhaust pipes.

Synn is correct that I am older than some on here, so I donít go for the turbo cars any more, although I do also drive a Subaru, a BRZ in fact, a classic Subaru blue/Rally Blue one at least.
Getting older has the advantage of you being able to afford to insure high performance stuff though, i remember paying thousands of pounds to insure first a gsxr750 and then later on an fzr1000 exup when i was in my late teens/early 20's, my r1 costs a pittance to cover today compared to those days..and i'm still not too old to stand it on the back wheel...

Myself and a mate went through a crazy Japanese 400 stage about 20 years ago, it was great, I loved those mad little 400s.
I just dropped you a quick PM about custom builds, I hope you don't mind.

You should get better pit stands.
I spent a few hundred bucks on mine and a child could prop a bike up with those.
