Just thought I would throw up this reminder to get off the net and watch it.

Yeah, the races got canned due to high winds. Bunch of pansies! Michael Dunlop had a "falling out" with Yamaha and they split up like a week ago! Hes on a new BMW now. Man, that cant be an easy switch in that kind of racing.

pansies lol....

but it said they were doing the race the next day? unless I heard them incorrectly (the commentator host seemed like a douche that doesnt know anything)...

and yea I heard the interview with dunlop

host - "so are you ready for the race?"
dunlop - ".................... what do you think?"

it is a huge switch... completely different animals and nothing in common(unless they're running the same tires)

Yeah, I have learned new bikes but at a REALLY gradual pace. I cant imagine switching bikes and trying to win a race. Even 2 of the same bikes will feel very different.

Seems a bit worrying. May be a big ask.
