    Giggles Presents: A Fucking Motorbike Thread

    By, popular demand, I guess. The F1 thread only has a heartbeat when there's a race on ... for like an hour. Isle of Man TT Qualifying begins on the 26th of May. Michael Dunlop's given John McGuinness a bike to ride and everything. Awww.

    Also, how many disciplinary issues can Marc Marquez rack up before somebody slaps him?

    Those helmet designs are great. You could make a museum erm .... thing out of Rossi's helmets. And that Ducati he road with the Italy kit on it. Funny how I never really liked the look of Ducati bikes until Rossi stepped on it. They looked bloody drab in the Marlboro days.



    I like Rutter's TT bike ironically because it looks like a pack of cigarettes.

    Race pace is his problem, though. He can't keep the tyres fresh.

    Been watching a lot of Restricted Isle's spectator spot videos on youtube. It's a good resource for anybody looking to view around the island. On the bad side, I got ill from watching 30 minute's worth of his dash cam. I hope that doesn't translate when I decide to get an actual bike.

    That's the most dodgy thing about road racing, really. It's rally rules when it comes to spectator areas. And some spectators are complete knobs. Especially the ones that moan about restrictions. Ramsey hairpin's off limits because a sidecar went rogue last year and sometimes they restrict because they don't want to stretch stewards and police too thin.

    First fatality of this year's festival. Finished 3rd in last year's Superstock race and previously raced in 2011's British Superbikes. Steve Mercer is reportedly the other rider who struck the course car. Hope he pulls through.

    Why? I can't really hate anyone who wins at the TT. Dean Harrison's pace is mental. Thank God his bike packed in before he ended up in a wall.

    I'd cheer on Ian as well but I fear it'd only encourage him to smash his leg again. At least he's so wildly off the pace he might consider retirement.

    Okay, I think Dunlop's just put Harrison properly in his place there. Three races, three lap records. Also, Jodie Kidd is terrible on ITV4's coverage. She has no business being there when Matt Roberts is on the case. It's made worse by her being a foot taller than them.

    Four races. Four lap records. All that's left is the TT Zero to make it a full house across machinery.

    Also, Dani Pedrosa's leaving Honda.

    Yeah, they go round enough that you think they'll be safe but all it takes is one mistake or problem with the bike.

    Hardly surprising given the traffic on that track. Steve Mercer's came out of hospital the other day.

    Fuck Scarborough Council. Also, Dani Pedrosa's retiring. 17 years in the World Championship circuit and a year younger than me. His debut season of 2001 is the only year he's been without a race win.

    Let's kick this up the arse. Ivan got discharged from hospital the other week. Steve Mercer's on the mend as well. Rejoice. A Romano Fenati's career is very much over. Banned for the remainder of the season, if he can ever find a ride that would take him.

    Me again. Checking out the 2019 MotoGP teams. I really would love to see Lorenzo get at Marquez. KTM are a factory team now with Tech3 backing their sister team. Going to be weird not seeing Tech3 liveries on a Yamaha. Joan Mir's wound up at Suzuki so we'll see how he gets on. I kinda miss the days of youngsters being plonked straight on a top bike. Franco Morbidelli steps up as well to a satellite Yamaha. I've got high hopes for Mir and Morbidelli but then I have Vinales down as world champion before Marquez. I know nowt.

    I was wondering where Bradley Smith wound up. Thankfully, he's on the MotoE grid along with Sete Gibernau. Those of you might remember he's still cursed from when Valentino punted him off at Jerez almost 20 years ago. It's a grid of old hats, really. Randy De Puniet, Mike de Meglio and Alex De Angelis all coming out of whatever retirement is for those guys. They all start in May.

    It begins. Not bothering with torrents this time around as waiting a week in arrears is a bit too much for me. Terribly edited youtube highlights will get me by. Qatar caught up. I can't believe how nose-to-tail that was from the big boys. Rins looks handy on that Suzuki but I don't tend to read much in Qatar. Everyone's kinda cold, usually. Crutchlow and Mir went well.

    Just watched Qatar. Brilliant race throughout. Nice to see Suzuki being competitive (I haven't followed the past ~8 years or so). Good performance from Crutchlow and Rossi aswell.

    The only thing that annoys me so far is how someone gave Fenati another chance. And the commentators seem to be fawning over him in a 'I know he's not a popular figure but ...' I was genuinely chuffed when he buggered himself in the race.

    Obligatory request for anyone with a reliable source of downloads for Moto GP/2/3 (I'll take some superbikes too if you have them) to hit me up with a link.

    In my head, there's always been dominance in SBK but Johnny's the only person to win the title 3 years on the bounce.

    I was a bit surprised to see Bautista on the grid then not very surprised when he was off the front in every race.

    Also, on MotoGP (thanks Pepe, I spent all of yesterday binging on stuff from that website), how come George Laurence was pootling around at the back? Did he snap his ankles leaping into Pedrosa's grave or has he decided he can't drive the bike (much like he did at Ducati)?

    He qualified badly and then ... stayed. No idea what's happened there. He was all over the place at Ducati.

    He hit the pit limiter at the start of the race and had to scrap from the back. Still, he's the first rider I've seen really struggle on that Honda.
