funny stuff, gotta love Cal too. Both just have great personalities for the sport. Rossi has had some hilarious comments the past few races, good to see him back as himself.

Such a huge difference between the GP this year and last year. Last year everyone was so serious.

MotoGp wasn't the same without Vale in good spirits. Even if he isn't winning, when he is with Yamaha, he is in good spirits.

It's a much better season so far than last year. Rossi is back on a decent machine (which will soon have a fast seamless gearbox like Honda's), Marquez is on fire as possibly the best rookie ever and Pedrosa & Lorenzo are both currently nursing injuries. And to top it all - there's a fast Englishman with a decent sense of humour who is looking like he'll be offered a factory ride next year (Ducati? - but if so will he take it?).
Laguna Seca's a great track which most of the best riders seem to enjoy. This is hotting up to be a great race this weekend. I just hope Lorenzo doesn't fall off, or it's gonna hurt bad!

I'm thinking Crutchlow, Rossi, or Marquez will take it. Crurchlow...Ducati....eh, be careful what you wish for. He might be better on a satellite team.

I'd love to see Rossi win this one, that would be ace!

Perhaps the Yamaha is quite well suited to Laguna Seca... I think Pedrosa might be on the podium along with perhaps 2 of the Yamahas, but I'd also love to see Marquez be the first rookie to win in his first year at Laguna Seca.

As for Ducati, money's better with a factory team for someone like Crutchlow, but unless they do something it'll remain uncompetitive as a bike for next year. He's best off sticking where he is. Who knows, maybe they'll kick Pedrosa off next year and offer Crutchlow that factory ride instead! Much to come yet...

Last I heard, Lorenzo was going to sit out Laguna Seca. Has that changed?
Yeah, Dani's gonna be a force to be reckoned with. I look for either him or Marquez to win, barring any injuries between now and then, and assuming Lorenzo sits out.
I sure hope Cal gets on the podium again.
Cal wants to win! I wonder what he would do with an offer from Ducati?
As for Vale -GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guess Lorenzo is going to give it a shot. Can't wait to see the fireworks.
