Non-K1600 related. So you think you can ride?

These guys are amazing.
Rossi vs. Marquez





I could live without the music sound track, but watching these two guys race is exciting. It's a shame how it ended.

Dirty move by Rossi at 6:44. Instead of following his line and racing, he went wide trying to run Marquez of the track he almost went off himself. Unbelievable racing till then

To get the full story you need to go back a race or two. Marquez was out of the championship but Rossi was in the thick of it. Rossi was thinking Marquez was intentionally harassing him. (weather he was or not is still being debated) At a news conference Rossi complained about Marques catching him off guard. As the week went on Marquez became angry and I think he decided he would show him what intentionally harassing him looked like. Rossi needed that race to win the Championship and was getting more and more frustrated. They were angry at each other for a long time. I think if Rossi would have talked to Marquez man to man in a private room instead of blindsiding him at a news conference it would have never happened.

The race in Austin was outstanding.

Next they are in Spain.

How can they call themselves real motorcyclist when they don't have pink seats?

How about Ian Huthinson through a sleepy village on the Isle of Man (speed limit 30)...




Rush with hush.

Yep. That happened in Argentina last year. Marquez was quite a bit nuts that race. I don't think he intended to knock people out of the race he just wanted to go faster than the traffic would allow. Hopefully he has learned from that.
