Thats pretty damn intense, WOW!

I need to watch the 250s more. That looked like some pretty good racing, going 4 wide like that.

Which guy are we talking about the one who ran off the track, or the one who was minding his own business when the guy who ran off tried a rectum exam with his numberplate?

That is the fastest corner on the MotoGp circuit. I am not sure what the bikes top out at but it's 6th gear all out.

The 250's this year were much more exciting to watch than than the 800's. WSB was also better racing than MotoGP. IMO
