When the bullshit starts to fly at race meetings, my two favourite mythical corners that have been made up over the years are the Yukskay Sweep and the Klakenbocker Esses. It’s so very hard trying to keep a straight face when someone claims to have been flat out through the Sweep or the Esses one time on a track day :rollin :rollin :rollin

LOL - almost sounds like being in the NAAFI, listening to the various young lads boasting about the conquests in the local town on a Saturday night  :lol :lol :lol .

 Glen Irwin is winding up Tommy Bridewell again yesterday. This time it was in poor taste.

Hopefully Tommy will be used to the Irwin level of banter, as he’ll have Andrew in his ear this time on the Honda. So hope Glen wins it next season.

Vale certainly put motorcycle racing on the map for thousands of people, and is sorely missed, as every now and then a character comes along and creates an interest for people in something they would not otherwise have been interested in, and to me, Vale was one of those people. :thumbup

New kid on the block may be Pedro Acosta, 2 championships in 3 years. He won Moto 3 championship as a rookie. Moved to Moto 2 and won a few races in his first year and won the championship in his second year. Moved up to MotoGP and put up a good showing first time on a MotoGP bike in November.My kids grew up with Rossis and we got to see him  in Donnington a few years ago. Made their day.
I always liked Rossi and watched  him come up trough the classes, great man for mind games,  Marquez caught my eye coming through the ranks, but Rossi was different something special.
He was having fun and the more fun he had the more he seemed to win in his heyday.
Stoner was an incredible rider but lacked Rossis personality as does Marquez.For this year it will be hard to bet against Marc.
Roll on the testing and the racing.
As an aside did anyone notice that the first BSB race is in Navarra Spain this year

BSB used to have one round at Assen until quite recently. Maybe the organisers have returned to that format, but chosen Spain for the opener as the weather should be more predictable. Hopefully Glen will be champ.
Totally agree with your comments on Casey and Marc. You can’t deny their talent, but are certainly down the list personality wise. There is excitement around most classes for the coming season, Marc on the Ducati, Toprak on the Beemer, Sam Lowes racing his brother and Guintoli on the Beemer in world endurance. Can’t wait, got my Le Mans tickets booked already.

Not to be a fun sponge or anything - but after arriving at the eldest daughters on Christmas morning for a day or so's merriment, we discovered that her and hubby had "eaten" something from the local Chinese the night before and were in no fit state to perform the host duties. Rest of the gang weighed in and a quite day was had by all (even with 6 dogs in the house). However, things then began to unfold. Early hours of 27th, my missus went down with something nasty. It wasn't looking good as this kicked off her IBS. A day later I also succumbed to what we now think was Norovirus.
Merry F***ing Christmas - My Arse!  :moon

 Oh my god what a nightmare :eek . What rotten luck. Hopefully you are all well on the mend now. Certainly a Christmas that you won’t forget, for all the wrong reasons. :(

Wow that is a serious weight loss :eek .  I’m sure you could achieve the same result a lot more pleasantly, albeit over a greater time period. :)

Spoke to my daughter yesterday. By the sound of it she had a similar illness last Thursday, on her day off as well. Lasted a couple of days, not nice at all.
Good luck with the book :thumbup . I’ll give it a miss and just try to have a strict diet this month, dig out my pushbike, might even ride it, and see what the scales say at the end of the month. :)

Well, dry January is over, and coupled with a bit of a diet lost 12.2lbs. Quite happy with that as losing a few pounds when you’re getting old isn’t easy. However it’s the Dragon Rally next weekend , so will no doubt put it all back :lol , hopefully not though.
