There is just one drawback when you consider analogue vs. digital. Latter is not "live" any more. While analogue signal came thru all carriers and equipment with the speed of light this is not the case with digital. Every time the signal is buffered several seconds of delay are added, this is inevitable. In other words, if you had some miracle binoculars and you were watching a race 2000 km away using these you would see the same as analogue TV transmission would have shown. With digital TV you would see something that happened 10 or more seconds before. Your favorite rider may have crashed in real life already when you still see him on the bike with your digital TV transmission.

I miss 2-strokes so much, they just seem to be pure racing bikes compared to what we have now.

Aoyama vs Simo in the last 250 2-stroke race at Indy...fond memories. I'd watch that season if you can.

Surprised to see De Puniet was such a force on the light weight machines too!

I'd be kicking myself for not watching the junior classes if it were not for my relative youth (17 years at the time and only 1 year into the sport interest wise) and the fact that the BBC only televised the premier class.
The whole season was great and whilst people think Pedro walked away with it easy he didn't

stoner put up a fight on that inferior machinery.

Lorenzo also plays some funny parts as well later on in the season.
