AMA - VIR - Not really a **SPOILER** but...

.... I am growing tired of the #1 vs #66 Show - It really is not even fun to watch anymore - #66 is just a machine and #1 has sooooo much talent but what is up with the rest of the field?????? - Are these (2) just that good or is the rest of the field just that bad??? E Bos? Yates? Hacking? Zemke? C'mon fellas what is up?

personally i think that suzuki and yosh concentrate on the u.s. because that`s the only place they stand a chance. because on the world circuit it`s all yamaha honda and ducati. i also believe the later 3 don`t really care about ama roadracing

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

I would tend to believe that all the mfgs have tall cash to invest (none like Honda though) and can make their bikes competitive but they just all seem to pale in comparison to the Yosh Suz team - What gives????

Hahahaha - Duc has the smallest budgets of them all - Hell, I think Honda's R & D budget is bigger than all of Ducati's sales and budgets combined

Watchin that now - Never really followed SS but it is a tad more exciting than SB - The AMA makes me love WSBK sooooo much more

ah yes, I forgot. Get the Duc and you get all savvy with DVRs and become too high brow for commercials aimed at the poor huddled masses

Hahahaha - If I see that fuckin "Gremlins" commercial one more time I am going to launch virus to progressives web site so they spend more money on Security and less on advertising

Oh and DVR / Tivo is a must have - I had Tivo for years before I went HD with RCN

Well, you've got the real manufacturer teams...then everyone else.

Seems like Yates is doing very well with the Jordan team, who doesn't have the same parts availability as Yosh, but he is a rider that probably gets "A" level tires.

I like Mladin because he is a machine. An emotionless, crushing machine.

The Bostrom boys seemed more motivated a few years ago when they were both more involved in WSB. The Yamaha's are doing pretty well in WSB, so it seems like they should be riding those things with some love and character, but I keep getting disappointed.

Mladin made some comments about that last year.

Amen - He has gone on record many times saying, "This is my job - I get paid to win and I like to get paid" - He is pretty much flawless and he is now getting his starts down and that was the only neg in his game - Fuggin Aussie

Rossi was a machine too until Stoner stepped it up by finally finding a manufacturer and a crew that could support him. I think it's great.

Yes and No - Rossi will always run a corner wide now and then or even start 3 rows back where as Mladin RARELY screws up or starts worse then 4th - With that said, they always seem to find their way back up to the front for a podium finish - Rossi seems more human to me where Mladin is just a fuckin machine
