    WSB final at Qatar

    Yeah yeah, the title is decided and Rea has changed the record books, but it ain't over yet for WSS yet. The big question here is if Sufuoglu will try to show up......


    Probably the biggest piece of news is that Jake Gagne gets another ride on the Fireblade and has shown he can do halfway decent on it.

    If superglue comes back for the last round. 20 points in favour of Marino is it. Similer to the gp?

    Dang, this thread is blowing up!! Who said interest in WSB is on the decline.... I don't care much for Qatar hosting the last round. The place just doesn't ring as a legit race. Kind of like racing bikes at Daytona. Rea for the double. The most interesting thing in WSB right now is how long it will take JR to become the all time wins record holder.

    Something about riding a bike on a banked oval seems sacrilegious to me. I know a lot of people dig it though.

    Wathced the race last night. Just as the pack is coming together, except for Rea, they go and make changes. Sykes was sixth on a Kawasaki with two riders disappearing from the front of him. Lowes looked very strong. Me like it.

    We have a saying over here, which translates something like this:

    Is anybody having problems with WSBK's site too? The login iframe is not popping up for me, nothing is showing up in the video player, and I get a bad gateway when I click on their support link.

    No login for me as well. Already told these guys to fuck off after sending out a spoiler e mail when Rea clinched. I will look for free options next year if I am inclined to watch.

    Maybe Kim Jon Un would do us all a favor and loan some of his computer programmers and cyber jocks to Dorna, and also Apple whose last several iOS updates have sucked big time. The NK guys work hard, they work well, and they work cheap. As would you, knowing that employment can be terminated with a bullet in the head. And they don't require safe rooms or empathy tents.
