I'm tired of all the old 'one lap isn't a race' rhetoric, when in actuality, one lap of the Island = several laps of most short circuits. If you watched a 14 lap 'leccy' race at Oulton Park (almost sa...

According to reports, he did a 'casual' lap, then stopped at Sulby next lap. Probably at the Glen, so he could get a pint from Rosie - LOL! I don't think the bike is much different from last year, and...

If the factory were serious about winning TT's, they'd build a bike capable of doing so. Josh Brookes isn't doing too bad in BSB, last I saw, so -- it''s not a complete lemon. Catalunya GP on Sunday, ...
