Cooper could be the victim of bad timing, i.e. the cameras caught him leaving w/o any background info. Let’s assume he thanked his team manager and mechanics for their efforts this season before departing. It was a crazy year for everyone, and Cooper ... more »

No drama. As stated, Cooper likely let folks know he was departing, versus simply leaving in a huff because his bike failed. Mechanics and other support personnel bust their butts each week for a fraction of what riders earn. And those same mechanics ... more »

If he cleared it with Star management, no problem. They are his employer, and it’s not unprofessional to request an early exit. However; if he just walked, that sets a tone...

Added reply in a thread Terrible songs that are the band's greatest "hits". 9/13/2020 1:22 PM

Sabbath - “Paranoid” is at best mediocre, but some stuff off the first album is worse. Maiden - “Qwest for Fire”. More like “Qwest for Filler”. Lousy. Stones - “Satisfaction” was great for the early 60’s. Anything after 1985 would beat it to the dumpster. ... more »

“You Shook Me All Night Long”. I love AC/DC, really gaining an appreciation on the release of “Highway to Hell”. “Back in Black” was a bit of a letdown, with a few highlights, but “YSMANL” just never registered on any level.

I did not know Danny, but I know BAD ASS moto pics! Man, that shot just takes me back to when riding and racing was just balls-out throttle twisting. I’m very sorry for his passing, and that photo was a memory of simpler times. WFO Danny!

Same here! 3 on the tree, manual steering & brakes, short bed. Cantankerous and ill-handling, I threw it in a ditch 11 days after getting my driver’s license. My girlfriend was picking glass out of her forehead that evening.

Ferrandis admitted to making a mistake over the finish line jump, and even looked back to check Forkner’s progress. He knew what was coming, so why not check-up in the corner? At that point Forker either overshoots the turn or Ferrandis settles in behind ... more »

Cycling proficiency is heavily dependent on genetics, so listen to your body. On-line tools and calculators offer very rough targets based on age and weight, and pushing to hit those goals could be counter-productive. Track your own progress, and use ... more »

My cousin had an old steel go-kart that I drove the wheels off one weekend. Came home begging for a kart, and my dad says “what about a motorcycle?” That was 1977, and it feels like yesterday. Add a ferocious Hurricane to the mix, and 43 years later ... more »

Maybe not "bad", per se, but overrated is "Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood". Just kinda droned on with no real purpose. And Brad Pitt won an Oscar for his outstanding portrayal of...Brad Pitt.

This, and only this, according to the first law of thermodynamics. Even people with pituitary issues cannot generate “something out of nothing”, which gaining weight while in caloric deficit would be.
