  1. I cannot for the life of me see how Marc Marquez could be off the podium at Brno and miss out beating the record of Giacomo Agostini, 11 straight wins. He was in the 1.55's on Saturday to take the Pole. Vale had a finger injury in a nasty crash, and still managed to stay ahead of him. Am I to believe this was just an off day for the World Champion?

    The Doctor

    Vale has shown us the best come back riding in recent years. When it comes down to endurance in the final laps, it's hard to beat those 15 years between Him and Marc. Spectacular racing!
  3. I wonder if HRC Honda would have eeked out a Championship this past year without the jump on Yamaha with that seamless transmission. I've noticed the 253mph Bugatti runs the same type of gearbox. Even VRossi has said it makes a difference. Who invented it first?
  4. Nothing short of spectacular! this style of racing reminds me of King Richard Petty, racing on the inside of NASCAR, anywhere, anytime.
  5. Would anyone doubt that Marc Marquez would further his position in the MotoGP Champion ship? Many regards should be given to Bradl, Rossi, Bautista, Crutchlow, Dovi, Pedrosa, Lorenzo as well.
  6. If todays free practice is any indication what the rookie might do, 1'22.040, top of the heap, I think we're in for a good weekend.
  7. Without Jorge Lorenzo racing at Laguna Seca, and the possibility that Dani Pedrosa will not attend, will this open the door for Marc Marquez to further his lead for the Championship? Has he heard of the Cork Screw?
  8. Could there be anything more exciting than Winning the British TT Victory for 20 Times?
  9. From what I've seen, a new form of riding sytyle will be the normal, 61% lean angle requiring elbow pucks. This will be the trademark of MM 93.
  10. Welcome to the sport of Trials. I am just about the same size and can say that a 250 cc bike is just about the right size for trials and trail riding. A 250 Sherco will always serve you well
  11. Classy, and very well done.
  12. Has/does anyone plan on attending the June, 2013 race in Cardiff? Is it as exciting as it looks on TV? Just how long is that oval track? Thanks
  13. My Sherco has been like that from day one. I asked the dealer who sold it to me what I could do?. He told me to lay it over on it's side for a couple of minutes to flood the carb, a procedure I'd seen used on Husqvarna's many years ago. Problem solved, every time the temperature drops below 40F.
  14. I had the same problem with mine when I first got it. The D slide carburetor seems to be high performance oriented. I would try dropping the needle, one position at a time, If that doesn't work, try lowering the main jet size. A combination of the two worked for me.
