A true man who appreciates his fans. It is now time for him to be with his family...and train that son of his so we can watch him race.

Thanks for posting this up, Sub.

I remember watching assen 06 and I was just in complete disbelief at the outcome. Some highs and lows for sure. Edwards fighting with Bayliss made for some of the most intense races I've ever seen!

I saw the 2006 Assen race on motogp.com archives just recently. I had no idea of what was to happen in that race, totally blew me away!
I'm sure Nicky was stunned and amazed as well. I think I even saw him glance backwards in disbelief as he passed Colin up.
I know the race was all those years ago, but I felt like it was live when I saw that, cause I thought Colin was gonna take it.
I think I heard that Colin never won a MotoGP race, is that right? Man, he sure won plenty of other races! I love watching him in the older races, even tho the resolution is pretty poor compared to todays standards.

He never did catch a race win in motogp. But he never really had the top seat on a factory team. The bikes are never the same.

I picked-up my cowl cover from Ray 919 who had it autographed for me at Indy.

Thanks Ray and thank-you as well Colin (I hope he reads this)
