Can't believe nobody has anything to say about Rossi taking the title in Motegi. A briliant ride and I can see he's going to be a force to recon with until he decides to hang up his leathers. Maybe with Stoner and Nicky on the Ducs next year there will be some good battles. ROSSI...

"Pretty good" rider? Yeah, that's like saying mach 4 is "pretty fast"

I was looking for more of a battle, but after the Indy round, Rossi winning the championship was a fore-gone conclusion. Really, earlier than that it was predictable.

I don't know if Nicky will be able to dice with Rossi the first year on the Duc, but I believe he'll do it the second year.

Stoner's been cursed. He and Gibberchoke can commiserate together while they test for Nicky.

I couldn't agree more Tom... as soon as Rossi came past he just 'settled' for 2nd place. Not one ounce of fight in him this weekend. Granted he rode a good race, but pulled a Dovisioso. Dovi never used to fight back when passed by Lorenzo (until the last few races of last year).

I think he got tired of trying and crashing. There seems to be no way to beat that guy.

Rossi.....a legend?.....or a ? Hmmmm.......

Spec tire should make things interesting next season.......

Hopefully with the shake up in AMA series, things will get real interesting on home turf.

I'll be looking forward to a dry Indy race next year! That is if I'm in the country to see it......

Kind of funny all 3 major series have been decided early this year.

AMA = Spies
WSBK = Bayliss
GP = Rossi

So what are the new rules for AMA.?.. Let's get this chit moving forward already.
