Repsol.. by far my favourite, but then again I'm a bit biased.

I'm not sure why everyone wants to have Honda change the Repsol Colours, I think it looks fantastic especially under the lights at Quatar.. .

Who is this " everyone"  who want to change the Repsol colours?  I have yet to meet such a person.

Do you follow HRC on facebook?

Go look at the comments when Repsol release their livery.

You will find 100's of people commenting about how boring Honda is because the bikes look the same as the last year.

No, I don't follow HRC on FB.  You will agree with me that 100's of people commenting on the boring Repsol colours would hardly
constitutes "everyone".

I didnt know that we had to be so literal when discussing things on Wild Dogs, my mistake.

So to be clear then just for the sake of moving on. Not everyone.

I'll go and calculate the percentage of people being negative and compare it to people being positive and give you feedback on the correct percentage of people against the colours. :o

happy?

moving on. ::)

No, not happy and most certainly not moving on.  You have yet to report back on your findings after the + and - comparison.  Step on it please.

You are now #2 on my "F*ck*r to be Nuked" list for rolling your little eyes at me.  Pasopa!   >:D

Side note:  I saw in another thread some dude singing your praises because you never insult people.  I thought to myself, "that can't be right. Fuzzy calls me an idiot at least once a week."   >:D

Oh!  Don't be so literal!  Just a list with numbers will be fine.   :snorting:

I wonder why everyone is demanding pie charts these days?   :imaposer:

I see DB40 stayed within the top 7 during unofficial testing on Jerez yesterday.  Team mate McPhee ended the day 2nd fastest.  While we all know these early tests are not much of an indication, I do believe top 10 during these early tests is way better than bottom 10. 

Tomorrow, official testing starts at Qatar.

BigDom, mine too, and they were standing on the floor of Donford motors in Stellenbosch in the 70's, when Donford was still the local Yamaha agent.

Yes, these monsters were on display next to AG100's. :eek7:

FOUR WHEELED MONSTROSITIES!!!

*gasp shock horror*

I sort of disagree with Kiljoy.  No shit, hey?  MotoGP bikes are a lot like racing greyhounds.  The one that crosses the finishing line first is the prettiest.

Yeah, I also drooled over them.  My uncle had a 3.0 V6 that was breathed upon by Basil Green.  It can't remember the details but cams and exhausts and all sorts of other go fast stuff.  This thing would go man.  It really did.  I used to feel like the main man when we went to Kyalami to watch the racing and those Gunston Peranas came by since I arrived in a Capri, albeit it not a Perana.

Even today, I rate the Capri as one of the more beautiful cars ever build.
