    A few years ago, I think he made some dangerous overtakes that upset everyone. He was young and deserves some forgiveness, I think his decisions have improved alot. I have become a fan, but always hoping someone will beat him, because he is that good. Markie winning is almost boring.

    I switched over to see what was going on before the F1 race, interviewing celebs on the grid, the hype was amazing and our boy Dan is undoubtedly a top fellow. The race took forever to get started and man those cars go fast. After about four or 5 laps I remembered that no-one can pass anyone and switched it off. It is soooo boring.

    Dangers of cycling

    I presume, (could be wrong) that out of the city, cars do tend to be a bit more patient as an overtaking opportunity is coming soon. I think what some (many?) cyclists forget is that a city of millions relies of traffic movement to function properly. There are many in Sydney complaining about overcrowding and commute times. Syd is struggling to remain a place you want to live. The boredom and impatience of slow traffic leads to anger, road rage and possibly unpleasantness in the home. In Syd car drivers are angry with car drivers, and studies and stats that commuting by bike is quicker, healthier, cleaner, cheaper than car is just irrelevant. The problem is "almost gridlock". As I see it, the problem is that on the odd occasion where traffic gets a chance to speed up only to find a cyclist taking the lane on a climb say, when many are running late and stressed, is the last thing they need, yet relatively rare, making the cyclist a focal point for airing frustration, not to mention an easy, vulnerable victim for an insult, at best. If the same hold-up was a line of cars behind a truck, "damn, oh well normal". Good cyclists climb in the 20kphs and 30-40 on the flat, slow cyclists like me are around 10kph climbing and mid 20s on the flat, must be agonising for cars behind me. Trucks often go up hills around 50kph. My cycling is never commuting to work, always on some training roads (Bobbin Head, West Head) mainly because I'm a coward. Anyway I am trying to explain that the car frustration at cyclists, isn't only about cyclists, but about the city's commuting problem, over an hour to go 20km is not unusual.

    Martin Logan Impression ESL 11A

    Lot of opinion in there, Gary. Referencing Stereophile's classification does not justify anything, it is just another arbitrary opinion. Who says 20-20k or 40k is what defines FullRange ?? Common convention ? doesn't make it rule or fact... just convention. Yes, you hijacked this Logan ESL thread to rave about your Maggies....

    when I say Dovi doesn't fall off enough, I don't mean pusshing traction, I mean passing, attacking....

    I think Dovi's chance was last year, I mean he rode The Beast and manages tyres etc, but he doesn't fall off enough. The limits change all through the race and pre-race.. I see Markie, Jack, ..umm, who else is pushing in practice.... Johan, **** what a disappointment. Or maybe carrying an injury for a long time... but Hehaw, Doctor, Dovi etc, all riding inside the limits. Dani lasted along time being ordinary, come on SUZUKI !!!

    Mate! He is not factory sponsored or anything. You can't find a slot for him on the starting grid ????

    He'll never go bad, he is too good. Watch some of the vintage racers in their 60s, motor racing shows that knowledge and a biiiiig comfort zone, can make up alot....for reflex and flexibility. Marquez has the lot. But if Rossi was 22, he might play the slidey games that Marquez plays, but he has a lot of off-track reasons to not fall-off.... I won't say he can't win 2019. Let's see how things are in July, we'll have a good idea. Personally I hope the leaderboard is full of the young guns.

    I'm sure he's been called worse.... hope he doesn't lose the championship by less than 25 points.... Some bizarre performances, Vinales on Pole, PolE on a KTM beating lots of people, Rins and Mir - they are going to be gooood, and not because I have a bazuki. Poor old Hehaw, now on Honda....maybe when his contract is up for renewal we'll seem him win races again, maybe move back to Yamaha.... or KTM ! Cal the Crutch can ride.....

    You don't reckon The Bike was getting his knee down on his Honda or Manx's ? There was a famous shot of him at a crazy lean angle, but the turn was heavily banked...mighta been Daytona.....late 60s? Come to think of it...might not have been Mike either..haha

    I wonder if anyone else has learned to balance the bike on the 3rd wheel. That seems to be the standard set and not surprisingly since the lean angles are ridiculous......
