I think Rea will do good this year. He's back to full health and Ten Kate should have the ride by wire sorted for this year. They were experimenting with it at the end of the season which was the reason for his DNFs.

Not sure where the other series fit in there - haven't watched an entire season of BSB yet to make that call.
Moto2 had some great ones, Argon, Bruno. I skipped out on WSS/SBK last year, but this year looks like more to be happening there.

For BSB, Im not a fan of countdowns on principle, but the BSB countdown from last year was awesome. Hopkins donington double on Sept 11 was great. He was on a role unitl his bike got a virus in the second race of the final ronund. He is well liked everywhere but it was a bit susspisous to me... Mabye someone got him with a homemade EMP wepon. He made a great ride from last place throught the pack to set up the last race to a winner take all that has been seen so many times over... I'm waiting for Isuperbiker 2 to go online, getting good reviews.

It's old news except for Honda. Since it wasn't on the production bike they couldn't incorporate it into the race bike. When Rea came back from his injury, they went ahead testing systems. That's why he would be going strong and then DNF with mechanical issues.

Stoner was running softer tires - They all got the same 2 diff compounds
Stoner has the best bike - Correct that is why he had the most poles, fast laps and wins in the 800 era and Rossis 9 WC where in the crapiest bike in the field LOL
Stoner can't ride without electronics - Correct that is why the dr. flossi asked to double the dosage to see if he can ride better
Stoner doesn't like to dice it, he just takes off - He should wait for them
Stoner only puts a handfull of laps and jlo puts a lot consistent laps - Stona only needs 2 laps to know what's wrong with the bike
And the list goes on------

The truth truth is, just sit down and enjoy the ride, i wish they put a go pro camera on stoner like James stewart but backwards so we can see the field for the first few laps lol. BTW GO RV!!!!!

Get ready to be demolished again YPBss!!!!!! (Yellow Pantie Brigade) Let the predictions begin
And remember, my last year prediction was 12+ poles and 10+ wins for dingo, No wins for Uccio, and my first test prediction was dingo-jlo-asimo-muffin spies, i will give you guys my predictions soon

YPBs - I will see you guys during the races -
YPBs memebers - James, Arturo, Grinchy, Henry
But please, this year don't wear your UCCIO red and yellow panties and start playing pillow fights.

FYI - Stoner fell backwards and hurt his back when he saw the 90% new ducati

10% the ducati sticker
90% the Yamaha bike

They spent millions of euros in the rider that they couldn't afford to paint the bike and the tank just came from the shop lol

CS 2012 WC!!

P.S. For those with twitter accounts, follow the Yamaha and HRC wars they are funny as .

And no, Stoner doesn't have a twitter account, he doesn't like to be followed LOL - i know stupid joke

stoner and dani fl on lap 2 and 3 respectively, everybodyelse more or less mid distance.................. two comounds or not, one softer than the other

Stoner has the best bike - Correct that is why he had the most poles, fast laps and wins in the 800 era and Rossis 9 WC where in the crapiest bike in the field LOL

in 2007 i said, like how you deflected that

Stoner can't ride without electronics - Correct that is why the dr. flossi asked to double the dosage to see if he can ride better
he inherited a pos, built for and around stoner for 4 years that only stoner could ride, you think he should have just give up??

Stoner doesn't like to dice it, he just takes off - He should wait for them
Rossi used to give them a head start

Stoner only puts a handfull of laps and jlo puts a lot consistent laps - Stona only needs 2 laps to know what's wrong with the bike
And the list goes on------

bwa ha ha ha ha, he doesn't know wtf to do so he comes in lol

The truth truth is, just sit down and enjoy the ride, i wish they put a go pro camera on stoner like James stewart but backwards so we can see the field for the first few laps lol. BTW GO RV!!!!!
