Re: Official 2018 MotoGP Thread

It is truly unbelievable the hatred and such that gets spewed online from Rossi fans.

I think Rossi is cool, I always have. But goodness me, his fervent fans are something else. Their like scientologists. :lol:

Re: Official 2018 MotoGP Thread

Lorenzo's travails on the Ducati have been a mystery. This year's bike in his hands have been a step backward, he had the bad luck of the brake failure in the opening round, the disaster in mixed conditions in Argentina that always confound him, the fade in Austin. The past two rounds has seen him r...
