The tyres have gotten better to allow it. It was great to watch, V-Twins everywhere, just before the 1,000cc 4's came along.

Agreed, I've only been following top level 2 wheel races for around 10 years or so with real interest but watching the likes of Hodgson, Toseland, Frankie Chilli and the samurai of slide, Haga round the gp loop at Brands is a very special memory.

Just seen the highlights on ITV4. The old king Rea finally ends Bautistaís reign. Did wonder why the Superpole race had so much coverage on the highlights package and of course the reason being the second race was cancelled due to the weather

I was at Donington last Sunday. Great weather and not a bad crowd either. Who wudda thought Alvaro would be behind Rea in the championship after the first 10 or so races?

These riders are incredible. My jaw dropped every time I watched them come out of the old hairpin and accelerate hard ALL the way to the entry into McLean's! How on earth do the bikes stay underneath them? It looked like the rear was about to go into an almighty slide every time. Incredible to watch.

Alvaro was really causing an upset by dominating the start of the season, now the status quo is back to normal with Rea back on top. Itís not over yet though

No, it isn't over yet, but Bautista really needs to race "smarter" and stay on the bike from now on.

I'm like you, I've watched the WSBK guys at Brands(although not in recent years) and I'm absolutely astonished how the bikes defy gravitational and centrifugal forces in remaining upright, the level of adhesion is incredible. Come to that the BSB guys put on a pretty good show as well.
Apart from Rea who is in a class of his own, the rider that has impressed me this season is Toprak, or Superglue 2 as I prefer to call him. His finishing record is very impressive. Really good to see Chaz get a win in Laguna, hopefully a return to winning form.

What the hell has gone wrong with Bautista? Has he suddenly found the bike doesn't suit him or something? Or has the pressure got to him? Good to see Chas win again, but once agian Johnny is a class above everyone else
