    Valentino Rossi

    May I risk the wrath of the moderators, and recommend to the uninitiated a dose of Moto GP this weekend. Eurosport coverage is the best, but it will also be on Grandstand for terrestial viewers.

    Rumour has it that F1 racing has become less monotonous recently, but anyone with a passing interest in motorsport would be well advised to try watching Mr Rossi. He seems to defy the laws of physics on an inferior Yamaha to beat a whole army of Honda riders. Imagine Schumacher driving a Jordan - and still beating everyone else in the field with a big grin on his face.

    Obviously it takes a while for non bikers to understand exactly where a rider is out of shape, and to recognise the main protagonists, but I promise you the effort will not be wasted.

    Yeah, Rossi amazing to watch, truly born with a talent. He's had a go in rally and a F1 car aswell and straight out of the blocks he was impressive. As I said born with natural talent.

    Jungle, you are so right, moto GP racing is so far beyond F1 in terms of "watching interest", and it's mostly thanks to Valentino! He is not a man, he is a god. un*****ng believeable

    Scotty you are bang on - he'll smash the record on his first lap, and end up in the forest on his second!

    The record for a bike is so out of date, its just waiting for a really good rider and a clear track. Current records stands at 7.49 set years ago (15 years?) on an old 750cc RC30. In a recent BMW test, Marcus Barth did a 7.55 on a 300kg BMW tourer. If we could only persuade one of the TT boys to have a crack on one of their 1000cc 180bhp Gixers, I've no doubt they could bring it close to 7mins dead.

    Re: Valentino Rossi

    Coming from a 4-wheel-man, I have so much respect for Moto GP! Unbeleiveable, and find it amazing to watch! Their skill is phenominal.
    But, F1 still has me hooked (yes, I know it's dull), the technology involved and the speed that the cars can corner.....
    Overtaking in Moto GP is great due to the width of the track and the narrowness of the bikes, imagine F1 on a track 3 times as wide....

    I found some of this guys videos on a site called www.uponone.com - there is a video of a guy maybe not the same breaking red lights around Athens hitting 120 / 130. He nearly runs into the back of a cop on a bike but just slows in time. Some excellent stuff on there. Look for City Madness in the video section.

    Rossi is now the best Moto GP driver ever. Doohan could never have laced his boots. I drive a bike so I have followed Moto GP for many years. Its the only motorsport I really watch now as I find the F1 boring (until this season).

    Moto GP IMHO is the best motorsport on the TV. I was lucky enough to see the man in action in Jerez last month! If you have not got your tickets for donnington, buy them now! worth it for the noise alone!!! but the ladies are nice too!!

    but he would still know it was there - I cant stand editing of photos like that- If you cant take a photo properly then dont take them (not saying that photo is bad and that he cant take photos of course). He may like the hand?

    You see I know it was an action shot and that moment wont probably come again, but the hand is there and is part of the photo. It wont change his memory of the hand not being there so why bother.

    aye, but there still is only one quickest line through a corner and off that it will be slippery [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Also, you can get closer riding as they bikes dont rely on such a level of downforce the F1 cars do. Just passed my bike test today too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
