You gotta give it to MM.

I remember when he first got hurt about 4 years ago.
He crashed, got away from the bike but the bike came back and hit him in the shoulder.

Superstition creeped in me head.
Thought jeez, that’s a bad omen.
It didn’t look that bad, but for sure has caused 93 a ton of grief.

Now, he’s back and is a force to be reckoned with, demanding a full factory ride.

Ya, you gotta give it to him.

I wonder if he would go to Honda or Yamaha if they were the only factories to offer a seat?

That’s a good question.

I’m thinking he’s done developing.
He must have enough money to retire comfortably.

I believe it’s the records he’s after.
I think he’s pretty close to Rossi as far as
Motogp Championships go.
 The Ducati seems like it’s the bike.
I mean, what else even comes close to Bagnaia
when he’s clicking?

I’d be surprised to see him, 93, on anything else really.
His time is running out.

KTM maybe?

I’m thinking Ducati fields a third factory bike
next year. One of the satellite teams will get 2- 2025s.
Martin, Marquez, they’ll try to talk one of them stay satellite with that team getting 2 2025s.

I guess we will see.

Wasn’t he one of the riders that Rossi kind of mentored with that rider academy thing he has going?

Maybe he’s, I’d like to think he’s just paying homage to a guy that showed him the way.
If so, very cool.

Moto2 was the race to watch this rd. The GP was a snooze fest.😴 I was about to fall asleep watching it. The start was decent, other than the Beast’s passes at the end. That Race Sucked!!!





IMO the KTM would be better suited for MM’s riding style

With Martin going Aprilia it looks like MM is gonna be Bagnaia’s teammate.

I nodded for a second but Lisa didn’t make it. Out like a bad coil.

I’ve not seen 2 yet but this rainy Saturday will give me a chance.
