I don't think so. If he was I wasn't aware of it. I believe Edison Dye or Clymer, one of those guys paid Torsten a big amount of money to show up and show us how it was done. Miserable event. As I said it rained for three days.

I got lapped by Torsten Hallman twice at the Wilseyville Enduro 1966ish. Rained for 3 days. Hodaka 100. Edit Full disclosure: twice on the first lap.

No worries Ken. It would be a real drag if we were all the same.

Just as with the news media there are a whole lot of people out there who paint with a really broad brush. You could be right, no one's mind will be changed, but it can't possibly help. It's easy to stereotype people. It's even easier when you give them ... more »

If this turns into a super spreader shitshow which it has a real possibility of doing, it will not only harm a segment of the industry but it will label all motorcyclists in the US as ignorant tattooed dumbasses. Before Honda came along with their "you

The Lebanese government has resigned over this mess. Probably got plane tickets out of there too before they get lynched.

I followed Binder throughout his career. He was almost intouchable in Moto 3 for a couple of years winning the championship. He had a couple of wins in Moto 2 but didn't have the right equipment. After the first two races in Jerez you could see his lap ... more »

Great race today. Factory Ducatis nowhere to be found, Vinales does a disappearing act, Quateraro fades, Morbidelli on the satellite Yamaha in 2nd Zarco hangs onto a podium, the old man hangs in for fifth, Rins with a well deserved 4th and KTM and Brad ... more »

The exciting thing is that a Mercedes didn't win. The other exciting thing is that Verstappen and the Red Bull beat them straight up on pace not just strategy. Apparently hot track temperatures do not work well for Mercedes. They blister their tires. ... more »

So they violated the sporting regulations but they didn't violate the technical regulation. I'm confused. Nevertheless they'll still be allowed to continue using the parts for the rest of the season. Makes no sense.
