I want a Rossi victory. I'd applaud a MM victory. I'd be cool with a JLo hat trick as well. But I would really like to see Rossi pull one out of his arse.

You did mention tires. I think the tire which has suited Jorge should continue to be available to him, but if Michelin improve the tire supply for the other riders including Valentino, far from being problematic it is what they should be doing. For Valentino the problem is that a tire which particularly suits him is likely to also suit MM. Although not a particular Vinales fan, I did think it was completely unfair to withdraw the tire he started the season with last season, which has subsequently been recognised by a regulation.

As an armchair observer of racing, I make no claims to any behind the scenes insights into the oft alleged shennanigans at Dorna or Michelin. I neither endorse nor discount the conspiracies said to stack the deck in favor of this or that rider. Given the kind of money involved, nothing would surprise me. That said, with all the ineptitude demonstrated by Dorna in so many other facets of the organization, I suspect that carelessness and incompetence are behind the flawed running of the organization more often than premeditated finagling. Having observed the poor quality of the Michelin fronts since they took over from Bridgestone and the length of time required to get their tires, relatively, up to par, I view Michelin more like The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight (a favorite old film) or perhaps The Lady Killers rather than the Deathstar Crew.

Three pages gone by and not one word from you about racing. I'm irrelevant?

looking forward to this race meeting, will answer a lot of questions about Lorenzo's recent performances and as mentioned by someone above, Rossi generally goes well here so we may well see a 5-6 rider fight for supremacy over the whole weekend.

Would be great to see Pedrosa pull a Pedrosa Perfect meeting.

So we know Blotus and pantsdown have zero self control. Let’s see if Kesh has the intestinal fortitude not to feed the fire.

I gave up on any giving a shit about the health and well being of this forum, after watching Jums name get dragged around, slandered and pissed on, with hardly anyone here naming the problem.
That guy has done more good to people he has met on this forum than you will ever find anywhere. Have any of you ever come across someone so generous and hospitable to so many he has never met. I’m not even talking about the philanthropy he does outside the forum, that most of you don’t even know about. Jum has personally met you a few times and has spoke in nothing but glowing terms about you Povol.
Michael M, Birdie, Gaz, will go toe to toe with you if one quip is thrown out about Stoner, a person they don’t know personally, will never meet, and will certainly never be friends with. They call Jum a friend and yet stand by with their thumbs up their asses when he’s getting slandered. A bunch of worthless starfuckers.
Just about the rest of the forum are a bunch of cowardly cunts as well. I have lost respect for all but a handful of people that had the balls to stand up. The rest of you can go fuck yourselves with your I just wanna talk racing bullshit.
That window has passed. Like Jum says, You get the forum you deserve
