I've seen a few posts here which suggest moto gp would be dull without Rossi, and to be honest, that is a stupid assumption. Yes he adds some flare to the race, but surely you can't watch it only for him?

I know which I voted for.

are you kidding...seen it 10,000 times!



ok, real answer...for the racing...

as i am an avid rider and crappy racer.
it amazes me what these guys can do on a bike.. in my eyes ALL these boys are Gods among Men...
on this DIRT BALL we call earth, there are only a handful of men that can be in MotoGP...it's THE most exclusive motorcycle club... the best... every other motor-sport is just that...a sport.

Moto GP can not be compared..it's at a level all it's own...

I watch it because I hold their skill in awe. A motorbike racer can make a pretty good auto racer, but most auto racers would be absolute crap on a motorbike. After "steady" Eddie Lawson retired from Motogp he embarked on a short career in Cart-Fed-Ex racing open wheeled cars. He actually did very well and had a best result of third place. What stopped him lack of sponsorship. Motorbike racers rule!

I think one of the best feelings in the world, is to go around the corner on two wheels. If I can't ride, than any gp race will do. Views of the track and action are almost rivaled by motocross...well nope! Nothing beats gp motorcycle racing!
