The picture cuts off at the belt so you can't see their shared wheel barrel.

What online service provides race coverage feed?

Hey at least you won't have first and last covered like last year. I think it will be good year for Ducati. They might actually listen to Nicky as opposed Honda who would only make the bike work for mighty mouse.

Weren't they doing + 200 mph on the races last year?

I just hope that they all start 100% ready to race, the last couple of years the races have been lack luster to say the least.

Depending on the IRTA test, I may or may not be renewing my MotoGP Online Membership and if I do, it may not be the expensive one either.

Dream, go to www.motogp.com, there you can buy different packages for the 2009 races

I am still hoping that I am going to be able to get some Online membership for WSBK... that's where the true races are going to be at!

+1. Though it's looking like it'll be the same as last year where it's free but you can only watch it live or else you have to wait a week or so for it to be available on demand after Speed has had a chance to show it. I'm ok with watching it all live because I like it that much, I just wish the video quality was better and I would gladly pay for it if it were.

Well, I don't know if you want to pay all that much to watch the 2008 races but, you can also watch old GP races... I'm talking 2 strokes 500 GP races here, now that's cool!
