Season looks to be shaping up nicely for another year of the best motorsport on the planet Pop Corn

Hoping the GOAT has a better season this year, looks like the Yamaha has improved somewhat, and if Rossi can't win it would be great to see Dovi on the Duke take it!

Can't wait Dance Tap

I hope I am wrong but I think Rossi peaked two seasons ago and the young ones are way too much of a handful for him now at his age.

Still my Moto GP hero of all time but he should pack it in after this season as I’d hate to see him finish way off the front or get injured.

5th from 14th on the grid wasn't too bad on a track that doesn't suit the Yamaha, 0.6s off the winner, plus beating his team mate (on pole) yet again, I wouldn't write him off just yet!

The thing about Rossi is that he just loves the sport, I think he will pack it in when he knows he's no longer competitive

What a race though Thumb

Another win for Ducati Thumb

Yep, like the old days with the 916, Ducati have built a race bike and converted it for the road!

If anyone was wondering - like me earlier - the Moto GP highlights package is now on Quest.

What a fantastic last lap. worship

If he stays injury free, Marc Marquez will walk it. Again. He's just too good for the rest of the grid. A once in a lifetime rider. He'll likely go on to be the GOAT championship wise.

The closeness of the racing on bikes is something that F1 dreams of. Cracking racing last night.

Difficult to see who or what is going to stop those Ducati’s.....I am thinking the Doohan and Honda days.

When Honda moan about tyre cooling you know they are worried.

Hats off to them as over the years they have struggled at times Thumb

There really is no comparison with F1, the racing is first class, fairing to fairing stuff almost every lap, how these guys do it is beyond me and I've done my fair share of track days!
