Re: Where's Ian Wheeler?

That's a pity. I really liked his voice.

Thanks for the update.

Where's Ian Wheeler?

Curious, because the new pit guy, Dave, was it? sounds like a stone. Nothing on google except old articles either.

Re: Round 2 Jerez - pre and post discussion - SPOILERS

This rain brought one of the best spectacles in some time and at the same time, also one of the biggest disappointments.

Re: Life isn't fair.

There's this forum called conceptart.org where artists working in the films and games industry usually post their work. Sometimes, if they're allowed, they even post stuff that has barely started production.

Recommended browsing, especially the galleries. Best way to waste time away at work.

Will motogp run out of tyres this year?

A lot of factory production over here has shutdown or severely slowed.
There simply isn't enough power to go around.
Have all the motogp tyres been manufactured already?
Are we going to have a problem after the summer break?

Not stoking any fires.
Just curious.
If anyone knows better.

Colours.

Yamaha is blue.
Kawasaki is green.
Aprilia is black/red.
Ducati is red.
Personally, I think Honda is red too, just a different shade.
What about Suzuki?
The baby blue is Rizla, what is their colour?

Re: Members in Japan - Check In Please

Thanks for the concern. Kobe is quite far from the epicentre, over 600Km. I think it's around 3.0 magnitude by the time it reached here. Looks like the area over there is in a real mess. There's a BBC video on youtube right now showing the water charging through the farm land sweeping houses and cro...

Re: Personal Update - Barely Motorcycle Related

I rode up a steep mountain path once too.

Actually just last sunday.

I couldn't get down because it was too damned steep to make a u-turn, or stop.

That wasn't very fun.

Re: Making a One-of-a-Kind Copy of a Production Wheel

I believe I've read before somewhere where this fellow grounded off all the spokes from a wheel size he liked, casted his own spokes and welded them back together. Not sure how it held up. May have been on the streetfighter forums, those guys do some really extreme things over there.

Re: GT5 and The PS3

I'd imagine the irony was greater during the period after, when the great rabbit was practically ruling Japan. But I haven't actually heard any criticism about the US rule other than from the ultra-right so I guess most people don't really mind.

Honda will only listen to Honda - just like they have always done. I will disagree with that. It's like saying people will never change. People change, everything changes.
