Kayo app on my phone throwing/casting to my Chromecast ultra in my receiver - the best sports broadcast images I have ever seen and all for just $25/mo :)

 

although the app leaves a bit to be desired :(

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......

Elbow is the fourth wheel nowadays, earhole is next.

Jaarno Saarinen was the first to use his knee - way back in the early 70s

Jean-Philippe Ruggia was the first to get his elbow down in the early 90s

Shoulder or head shouldn't be too far away !!

 

I used to race 125GP bikes and the only time I got my knee down was when I was  falling off :)

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

Jack Miller needs to learn how to manage tyres and also learn how to stay on the bike. Probably the same thing!

Well who would have thunk it, Dovi and Marc 1 and 2 again, bit of ground hog day methinks, any how great race and 4 different makes separated by a second or so. Pleased to see Vale did his usual raceday trick and overcame his sh#thouse  starting spot, Maverick and Jorge will be disappointed as will "our Jack", over all I reckon it was a race to be remembered

Fantastic MotoGP race, edge of seat stuff with Marquez performing his usual Kamikaze moves on the last lap but, to no avail. 

Also great to see young Remy Gardner, do well in the Moto2 race with the new Triumph engines.  He was only just pipped for a podium place.  One to keep an eye on this year.

Yeah, like Toba's helmet too (very important).

 

Have watched the GP and Moto3 so far, am very happy with my MotoGP Video Pass!! I think Moto3 is still my overall fave racing. Was lovely to watch it start in the light and slowly descend into the darkness with the lights coming out around the track. I imagine the little motors would have got a few more HP as the air got cooler and denser as well.

 

Bloody hell but that Suzuki will be unbeatable on the more tortuous tracks, that thing is on rails. And if I wasn't a big Rins fan last year, I certainly am now. Will be fantastic to see Rins and Suzuki on the podium at some stage.

 

Miller- WTF, haha, one assumes it was the crashed bike and they missed something...

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.....

Yes, the Vinales-Rossi weekend was also bizarre. Hope the old fella goes good this season.
