Is it me?

Or is motogp more exciting and personal than any other sport.....

this includes superbike and supercross etc.

I mean, Maybe its because you see more of the pilot than the vehicle, but it seems they fight it out more than other sports..... I love this. Plus all the drama that goes on inbetween races and seasons.

Yeah I like it cuz you can kinda tell what the racers are thinking just by their body movement. I also like it because it takes more than just their hands and feet to get around the track quick.

Yes, although this year WSB is looking good. I think it depends on the series, a few years ago when Kurtis, Jamie and Eric were racing 600 Supersport it was great watching it.

i think it just you.

motoGP isnt as exciting as superbike, epecially this past season. when you first see motogp it is awesome but if you compare the two types of racing and competiveness, superbike looks better now.

AMA>WSB

i like seeing factory bikes with guys who do trackdays.

i like seeing motogp but it gets predicatble when the same people always dominate in certain tracks. either way moto racing (motard, dirt, etc) gets me in a student zone.

for what I've seen so far, WSB will be awesome, if it stays like this....with Bayliss back it got more interesting. kinda like when Colin was there too, pure bliss!!

Moto GP will be awesome too, becuase of all the n00bs there this year.

And AMA sbk..well.....my least favorite efor some reason, I'm tired of Mladin winning, he should retire...lol

And yeah, motorcycle reacing it's mroe personal because......there can be phisically contact, and because there's people from many different countries, nationalism gets mixed too.

MotoGP has the world glam appeal. We do not see it as much state side but those guys are rock stars. As most of them deserve to be but, I like it all.

i love the last lap. the whole race is good, but in the last lap you can tell the riders know, and they are going for broke, giving it everything. its all on the line for that moment. even its just a fight for 2nd or 3rd, thats where it gets interesting.

plus i think the sport means more to us cause we ride.
