Agreed, Barry, but it's a big ask. Whilst Vale's consistency on the podiums is to be applauded, he has only been really close to the pointy end a couple of times this year, Qatar and LeMans if my memory serves me correctly, (but I am open to correction).

If his love said that's the way
It ought to be.

Going by your beliefs, Don’t you think that if Keshav really loved MotoGp, he wouldn’t complain about sleeping in the private quarters of a rusty RV in order to see one?

If Dovi wins, the usual prognosticators will say they knew it was coming.

But, if Rossi does win, talk of Michelin conspiracies will follow, and discussions here will no doubt stretch on for a lot longer than a few days past the weekend.

If he wins in current circumstances it will be highly meritorious, given the bike doesn’t seem that great currently and the tires haven’t been suiting him, so gainsaying him will be difficult.

Most “haters” on here have trouble with his off-track manipulation rather than his riding.

To be fair, I suspect he traveled to California from New York to see the race and was going to watch it in one situation or another.

LOL, I wasn't expressing the Valeban point of view bemoaning the "haters" tearing down the accomplishments of Rossi. Just making an observation about topics that generate a lot of posts.

Doesn't really answer the question.

He went and finagled his way into having a member give up his personal space due to needing special sleeping arrangements. Then proceeds to slag off said member by saying he had a rusty RV among other deplorable things.

He may have gone to watch the race but how he conducted himself was poor.

That is a separate issue from being a keen fan of the sport however.

Sure it was an honor to be invited to spend the weekend with Jumkie’s forum gathering, and reflective of Jumkie’s kindness and generosity.

Anyway, we should leave this, particularly given Keshav himself is not promoting any debate currently.
