Loved the Lorenzo interview, he is probably my second favourite just based on how real he is. He's a very flawed person like most of us but doesn't try to hide it. I expect his interviews in Spanish would be even better.

That's the only thing I don't like about Marquez is he keeps a lot close to his chest, which I understand but I would love to see him at least occasionally come out and say something that you know he is feeling.

I hesitate to make any blank statements, but it's been pretty damned chill here for some time. When certain elements stop coming round to inflame folks - people seem much less inclined to start up the drama machine.

Funny in how one particular member who seems gone, was modeling his online persona on that of Eric Cartman and he thought that was a good thing. I'm laid up at home just now following a quad bypass and been binge watching South Park and seeing how practically every misinformed jibe and insult that ever came out of that member's mouth was a verbatim Cartman quote. Not an original thought ever came out of that guy. Anyhow... I think the forum is changing for the better. I do hope more old timers will drift back here.

Historically, most of the real greats weren't super touchy-feely guys, Freddy Spencer being a rare exception, and he paid a price for that vulnerability, suffering with depression for many years.

Some are very personable like Mamola or Sheene but it's really kind of superficial stuff that gets past their privacy filter. Fans love the shit out of Rossi because he comes off very light-hearted, happy-go-lucky, impish etc. but it always felt like a very self-conscious act, from a guy who likes to play to the camera.

True statement on both! I think Sepang 2015 may have a lot to do with Marc keeping is cards to his chest.

That's the nature of internet forums. I'd say how I'll recognize him in a second, but they're all so alike, from the same mold, that it takes time.

Fingers crossed. This has been probably the only place online where I have enjoyed talking racing without being labelled a Rossi hater, but the drama escalated to a level I wasn't willing to partake in. I tend to take a back seat with flame wars but when I was directly accused of something I didn't do it was time to make a stand. Proof of those accusations never did come forward, which I knew would be the case as they were categorically false.

Anyway, like everybody I am looking forward to the new season. Cannot WAIT to see what Lorenzo can do on the Honda.
