Dammit I hate Speed Channel!!!! I want to look at whatever you guys are talking about but I don't want to accidentally read any friggin' results from this weekend so I have to wait until after I watch Race 2 and the Supersport race that my DVR will be recording tomorrow afternoon.

I hate weeks like this because it removes about a half dozen sites from my regular lunch time perusing list for 2 days.

You know, as much as I love the racing on WSBK, I am sad to say that I have missed watching half or more of this season because of the asshats of SpeedTV, they are so full of cheet they stink. Not only they don't let us watch the races on Sunday but they bought the rights to it so we can't even buy the online packages just like we do for MotoGP... did I tell you they were asshats already!

I am going to have to learn how to use torrents so I can download the races as they happen... eff speedtv.

Yeah, BMW and Aprilia should make a new addition to the Series. I am just hoping that they will go in with full force and not like the Foggy Petronas fiasco.

I think BMW is really serious, they are still stong enough finically that they shouldnt have any issues, just depend on it Xaus can keep it out of the gravel traps !

Aprilia, I REALLY want them to do well, I just hope they will not be totally Italian and get something done the first year. They have been working on this new motor for years so hopefully it will be the real deal - Only time will tell !

I'm thinking you might just be right there!


As an aside, I thought Pitt would be getting a Ten Kate Superbike before Rea. This next month is going to be seriously cool with AMA abandonees and the extra teams coming in. Lots of rides for lots of great racers assuming some of them accept going to SSP like Hayes. I need to find more money so I can travel across the Atlantic once or twice next year!

There's something in this months RRW about BMW having a machine that can estimate HP from the bikes exhaust noise

Yea, I think they have the dough and gadgets to be real players.
