HOLY SHIT!!!  What a finish!! 

So true but even just as exciting, and longer lasting, was the fight for second, third & forth more most of the race.  Josh Hayes didn't do too badly either.

Definitely!!  Best race of the entire season.

Being faster than you thought possible…it feels good. No, screw that—it feels like shotgunning a gallon of adrenaline and chasing it with an all-night orgy aboard a burning Viking boat.

Looks like there will be 7x 1098R riders entering 2012's WSBK...and Checa opted against running the #1 plate.  http://www.motoracereports.com/11211/world-superbikes-2012-rider-preview.html

Thanks for posting that!!  Should be a great season. Hopefully the BMW guys will get busy but I predict wins for Hopper & Camier. Kicks off at the end of Feb, 5 weeks from now.  drool

I hope they find the right recipe to get Vale to run in the top 3.

Aww, pisshh. Even I get my knee that close to the ground.   laughingdp

Seriously, I've always wondered how Rossi, Stoner, et. al. set that up.  Just hard on the rear brakes & a touch correction with the front or do they just muscle it over on tires that are so hot that they are slipping but still grabbing at the same time?

Who knows.  He's sure got that rear end stepping way the hell out though.  That's a serious approach he's got going on.

I can't wait for bike races to start again.  Losail Grand Prix (Qatar) kicks off the MotoGP season on 8 April!  Too bad I'll be in the Philippines for the month.
