"Faster"

http://www.fastermovie.com

finally saw it, i must say, i'm more interested in MotoGP than i've ever been. especially now that i know some of the history about it. for anyone that hasn't seen that movie/documentary, i totally recommend it. i just felt like they really left a lot out. some of the situations they spoke about...
like when Daijiro Kato died. i wanted to see what happened, but they never showed it. anyone know where i can get that clip?

nah man, here's the deal

in 2003 (i think i may be wrong) they introduced a new bike and it was their choice to keep either
a) 500cc 2 stroke bikes
or
b) 1000cc 4 strokes

they went with the latter and are now basically the standard for motogp

i'm definitely going to the track. i'll be back in houston around may/june, and i'll look more into detail then about track days info and junk like that. there's plenty information to be found on all these message boards.

all i can say is...
When's the '05 video comin out?! lol

500cc 2-stroke which is kind of like a 1000cc bike, but it has a load of torque and a lot lighter

I got the video it rocks!!!
I'm a newbie concerning motoGP and it was a great intro to the who's who and what they are racing plus a description of the different riding styles and so on.
It's more of a documentary than just a plain video

If you have ever road 2 stroke dirt bikes you will understand the difference in what they feel like compared to your street bike. Now amplify that to a couple hundred times. Talk about an unpredictable bite.

You stunt guys usually transition well to the track because you have good throttle and braking skills.

Case in point... Brandon Spradling. He's doing 'ok' in CMRA.
