I started watching during the 500 era, so they're close to my heart.
I remember being worried that the 990's wouldn't be as good, but I think they were probably my favourite, a lot of great racing.
800 have so far been a bit of a letdown, hope it picks up.

This is what I'd love too see - imagine the types of bikes we could have out there?

rossi doing his bit as he does,then u know it be a great fight.
the mugello incident for example
the elbow off biaggi to push rossi into the dirt then the finger !!!!

now its a off the line sort the order then thats hiw it finishes.
f1 meets MOTO GP.

Nooooo. No fuel limits. It makes not one jot of difference to the environment given the huge amount of stuff and people that are transported around the world for a seasons Motogp whether the fuel for a race is limited to 21 litres or not at all. What limiting fuel does do in the modern electronic era is mean that the electronics need to take over to ensure that the fuel lasts the race. Hence the comments by the British Eurosport team at Qatar regarding changing/leaning off fuel maps as the race progressed. This negates any "saving" of the tyre a rider may make if that does not also save fuel - although he could go faster due to the fact that his tyres are still fine, the electronics will have to limit the revs due to the fuel limits.

Other than that I think your idea of "run what you brung" is great.

dude you got nfi do you??


doohan lead from start to finish for 5 years on the 500's

rossi did the same thing for 5 years on the 500/990s

they dominated by winning 60% of races and pol position in the years they won.

and how is it any diferent now?

absolutely agree with this. of all the rules to change, this 1 never should have been touched. theres no place for fuel restrictions in racing imho. it's fucking stupid! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img]
