And Now For Something Completely Different... MOTO-BOT

They claim they will beat Rossi in 2 more years? Well, he is getting to be right at 40, but I don't know. Would you watch robots racing each other?

Nice Old Harley you got there! Mind if I kick it over?

I would think it won't be long until a robot would be able to plug directly into all of the on board telemetry info and ride right at the ever changing limit with out the human fear /risk element coming into play. But what would be the fun in that?

I guess you could always program different riding personalities into the different bots. Or make them hate each other. Then you'd end up with a race like today's in Argentina! LOL!

Lol! Who needs curb feelers! I think Marq went to the Andrea Ianone school of riding in traffic. He's sure a hoot to watch though! This rivalry is better than the Rossi/Gibernau rivalry from years back.

Screw a bunch of robots! Rossi will probably still be fun to watch at 40. May not win as much as he used to but he's usually right up the tail pipes of the young guns. Joey Dunlop was racing at 48 on 125 and 250 2 strokes no less and an occasional quick cruise of the mountain course. Us old farts can still be quick (at least to the beer cooler)!
