Re: HOPKINS AND SUZUKI ON BSB FRONT ROW

Hopper won both races and his team-mate, John Kirham was on the podium in race 2 ... so very good news for his prospect of returning to MotoGP or even doing WSBK. unfortunate for his competitors, Shakey Byrnes and Michael Laverty though... good pic... http://www.britishsuperbike.com/news/laverty-ver...

Re: 2011 Triumph Bonneville T100 - VOTED: AWESOME

missed the votes, but it's a "meh" for me too. this styling doesnt do much for the soul... i would have to say it is too bland: lame flat seat, ugly straight low-slung, peashooter exhaust style, vertical twin engine styling... etc. very utilitarian, and not much artistry in the styling of the mechan...

Re: China to build 20 new cities a year over the next 20 yea

This *is* bizarre, but yeah, at least housing is a priority for living. As mentioned my Mogster, the twisted nature of capitalistic economies being supported by billions of dollars of junk is more ludicrious and embraced so readily by our selfish culture. So perhaps these two extremes represent the ...

Great news for Canadian roadracing fans as McCormick has potential to go international.

Re: Disturbing and alarming statistics

Reading the article tells me most of all that there are likely more "new" older riders on the road and that they have equally poor riding skills, and possibly a lack of common sense and concern for there own safety as the "new" riders often do at younger ages. No news there. I see lots of new older ...
