    Definitely! I didn't figure I was the only long time fan lurking around here at BHW ;)
    So you're thinking Biaggi before Spies? I've never been a big Spies fan, but damn the kid visits all the tracks for the first time and promptly dominates free practice and secures pole after pole. He's doing things we've never seen done before in WSBK, or any racing series for that matter.

    I've got give him the nod, especially with Nitro Nori having to come back from such a brutal crash. I'm thinking Spies will make up the points gap.

    Vale all the way!! I'd be really surprised if he lets Lorenzo eek this Championship from him.


    What are you riding man? I see you're having a hard time keeping it on two wheels there :D

    Yes Biaggi has been strong this year too. That new Aprilia has some serious motor.

    Post up a pic of your R6 if you would. I just finished building my R1, dyno'ed at 171.2 Hp. I call it my Carbon Fiber money pit lol.

    Ride safe man

    No one can out fox Rossi in the moto GP series. His teammate tries but he seems to always sh*t the bed when the pressure is intense.
    For superbike, boy thats really interesting. Used to be a casual fan for WSBK but not this season. I'm in all the way and its gonna be interesting next season when Spies tries out in moto GP

    Yeah, Lorenzo has had a tough time keeping it on two wheels that last half of the season. lol Rossi tends to do that to people ;)

    No doubt, with only a 3 point spread in points between Haga and Spies with two rounds to go, it's going to be a nail biter right to the end for WSBK.

    Glad to see another WSBK and MotoGP fan here...do you ride?
