Why did BB have “RIP CHAMP” on his screen?
I think it was Gramp...

It was RIP Grampy.  I assume his grandfather must have passed away.

So, what can one say?

My Superbru is well and truly fękked.  To be fair, it has been for some time.

DB40 almost flew all the way to SA due to that high side.  How the heck everyone missed him, only providence divine will know.  After we have heard all week, last week what a terrible rider Darryn is (from very specific British commentators), this was his first DNF for the season.  He finished 7th in the championship.  Nowhere near where they were planning, but then, the Petronas team were nowhere near as hot this year as they were last year.

BB33 can't complain.  Not a wonderful race, but not a stinker either.  He finished 6th in the championship which isn't bad at all.  The other KTMs were 14th, 20th and 21st.  Sort of shows how k@k the KTMs were this year.  Last year they were 9th, 11th, 12th and 20th.  I so hope they get them sorted before the start of the next season.  Listen KTM, BEFORE the start of the season, not 60% through the season!

Today was the first MotoGP race since Assen in 1992 with no Repsol Hondas on the grid.

It was goodbye Vale.  All the riders, even a few past rivals, hugged, shook hands and said their farewells to the man.  It was written in the stars, it seems.  14/11/21 = 46.  This is the 46th week of the year.  MM923, due to his off-road crash wasn't there so he didn't have to shake VR's hand, hug him and tell him how great he was.

En toe braai die kierangs!  DF7 Dennis Foggia, or of you prefer Didn't Finish 7 times, knocked over young Acosta.  Earned him a 3 second penalty.  I fear SA fans may well break FB and Twitter as they bay for blood.

Then there is Aki Ajo who owns Ajo Racing.  Can we not get Aki to go manage the MotoGP KTM team? Take a gander at this record for 2021:
- Moto 3 Champion and P4 in the championship.  Team Championship. Rookie of the Year.
- Moto 2 Champion and P2 in the championship. Team Championship. Rookie of the Year.

Now we wait for Tuesday or Wednesday when the first 2022 test will take place.  We will see DB40 on a M1 for the first time.  Hopefully we will also see a really, but I mean really fast KTM for the first time.

Poor Yamaha.

If DB40 does well on it, it's him that is so good.

If he does not do well, it will be the kak Yamaha at fault.

Yaysirs, there was so much talk of DB being in the premium format, that I was looking for his name on the motoGP leaderboard all afternoon yesterday. Really disappointed that he was still ambling about in moto3...  :P

That is why Honda built V5 and 4's right from the start, clever people.

Why not save us all a lot of effort.  We all agree and accept that you are MM93 nuts (or just a great troll) and as such enjoy mentioning him in every post regardless of whether it is MM related or not, sort of trolling.  We non-MM fans, in turn promise to feel hurt, offended and well and truly trolled every time you post, even though you don't mention MM?     :snorting:

I didn't say I like it when they do, but it's more a comedy show, they have also give them credit, they sometimes apologize to Donovan Fourie when they are about to talk shit. It's different as its more a comedy show for me then say someone like Simon Patterson saying something.

I mean they call Alberto Puig a "Leathery Old F.ck".........just comendy

I had the unfortunate opportunity to listen to them when 90% of the discussion was about a rider's dick.  For me, they reached a point where they are just over the top, instead of funny.  To each his own though. 

You mention Simon Patterson.  Tug McLaughlin of this crowd are not much better when it comes to the Binder brothers.  He, in fact, coined the nickname "Blind Rhino" for DB40.

No I get you, and am not trying to get into an argument. I think I just "Perceive" this to be way more comedy than anything serious.

I support our riders fully, doesn't matter what.
