they can say or even do whatever they want to Bautista's bike, won't change his results. He is faster than Rea, period.

And please do not read any "MotoGP vs Superbike" in this comment. I am referring to the individual rider's skills and talent.

I think he is faster than a number of riders who still have premier class motogp rides.

It can be strange some riders elevation to championship contender status.

As Bautista once was the torpedo, Dovi was an also ran.

Shows what can happen when a rider has the correct equipment at their disposal. And this goes for majority of the current field.


I've always wished for a "one make" off season mini championship.
Much like the race of champions is for car drivers.

Yeah it's quite unpredictable sometimes, I mean like 2011 when Carlos Checa blasted his way to the title, that came out of nowhere, before that he was just a guy who won a couple of races a year.

Another one was Spies, who saw that one coming?

At the time everyone said AMA was a weak series next thing it's champion rocks up in the world championship at tracks he's never even seen and ends up breaking records on his way to winning the title on a brand new bike.

Casey Stoner could conceivably have had a similar motogp career to Bautista's if he hadn't to some extent fluked the caretaker Ducati factory ride when he did.

Guess its all down to who Dorna favour at the time, after all they don't really care about anyone as long as the filthy lucre keeps coming.

Bautista did it again. Davies 27 seconds down. Will this ever change?

Desperate if not dangerous move by Rea in my eyes (but that means bugger all)in the last lap last corner in the 1st race at Jerez today where he took out Alex Lowes !!!

Probably been swatting up on Marc Marquez tactics

I await the backlash with relish
