Making an avatar picture

Hey guys, I'm a bit inept as far as computers are concerned, and was hoping someone could help me with this. Now I quite fancied adding an avatar picture but while I am able to resize it to 90x90 I can't get it down to anything like 6kb in size, which it is saying is the maximum size for an uploaded...

Re: SUZUKI

It's funny, but having read Rossi's biography I thought it far more likely that he would have gone to Suzuki than Ducati. He had originally looked at the latter when he left Honda, but dismissed it because he felt the company 'culture' was too similar to the Japanese company - their particular effor...

Re: HRC just tweeted that '12 will be Stoner's last year in

Interesting that Honda seem opposed to the Rookie rule, and by the sounds of that would want to circumvent it.

Although, the interviewer doesn't make reference to T. Moody's quote from Ezpelata which opens with "No No NOOO!" :)

Re: Moto2 Le Mans *Spoilers*

That was an awesome race! Not sure if mattered that much with Iannone, no doubt if he had gained a position from it, the other team involved would have complained and there would have been a penalty. Any idea what Iannone looked so pissed about after the race though? Smith binning it on the final co...

Re: 2012 Le Mans Race Topic **Spoilers**

I remember years ago in WSB Edward's Honda SP2 was a little underweight. So, they added a little starter button on it! So many of the guys in Moto3 are below the minimum, why not employ some kind of similar system? Although Neil Spalding on Eurosport reckoned that it was still fairly straightforward...

Re: Silly season 2013

The guys on Eurosport were hypothesizing that it's one of the reasons he has stayed on the Tech3 bike, something that is having almost zero development, this year. Tech3 have essentially told him, "look we know it's not as good as the other chassis' out there, but just hang about for another year an...

Yep. Rain does not always produce great racing.

Wonderful ride by Rossi (the younger), gre...

Well, with the exception of Stoner (who I think must surely have some kind of Mario Kart-style shortcut somewhere around the track!) it is very, very close. Even Bradl in 12th is only 1 second from Cal's time in 2nd. Good to see Rossi has a bit more pace this weekend as well! Can anyone comment on t...

Re: Silly season 2013

During coverage of FP2 on Eurosport, Toby Moody said that Nakamoto has ruled out there being 2 Spanish riders at Repsol. Interesting stuff - assuming that Pedrosa stays where he is, that means we can rule out Lorenzo and Bautista for that other ride. I don't think it's likely that Repsol HRC will ru...

Just read this elsewhere, not confirmed: And Nakamoto of HRC just told Neil Spalding he needs to talk to a few riders including Lorenzo and Rossi If so, here it goes! Nearly the entire paddock is unsigned for next season. Does Lorenzo need to go to HRC? And I can't imagine Rossi going back to Honda...

Sorry but, personally, between the fishing vacation and this crap, I now have zero respect for him. Great talent thrown away at the prime of his career. Wow, those are some pretty strong words right there. Well perhaps the best way to think of it is as our loss and his gain. I remember Spies saying...

Although Haga went more than a decade into a career without breaking a bone, despite some horrific looking crashes. I know he has broken one now, but when he was younger the guy had rubber bones.

I thought all of the races have been a little bit deceiving this year - they look like they are going to be close racing, but then after 3 races now I have started to get wise to their deception!
