I Ride: A bicycle.
To me it looked like a crash waiting to happen. Lorenzo in a bit hot, Dovi standing up to avoid Marquez, Vinales the sandwich filling and what was Rossi doing he was way to hot into the corner thats why he crashed rubbling over the Honda, at normal speed he'd have avoided it.
I think that turn 10 needs correcting its downhill off camber and tight at the beginning.
Lots of crashes this weekend, lets hope it eases off a bit.

As to Lorenzo - aside from the obvious reasons, his crash bummed me out because, while I'm not crazy about him as a human,
I admire the fuck out of him as a rider, and my eyes were out of my head this morning seeing him up front, in 4th position
and pushing toward the front - with his new seat and new tank. I want to believe in miracles, and besides how great would it
be to have him up at the front for the rest of the season?

I'm not wishing any DNFs on Marquez for the sake of keeping the championship interesting . . . but I'm not thinking
it wouldn't help. Having said that - I've probably ruled out a jinx.
Hopefully him and maverick can get their asses up there and mix thing up a bit. Would be interesting. This is far from over, even tho marc has a huge lead.

Both Honda and Ducati are V-4. Yamaha and Suzuki are L-4.

Yeah it is, a 90 degree V4 which they refer to as an L4 because its 90 degree. which is confusing some with Yamaha and Suzuki having inline 4 / L4 comment. I knew what you meant, same same but different

Yamaha run an inline 4. Maybe confusion with Honda and Ducati, though both are v4 regardless of the angle the engine hangs.
