    Yes Sir
    I came up to him and said Mr Rainey you’ve always been my #1 man, watched you through the 80’s and 90’s here when AMERICANS kicked ass, he smiled and looked up at me and said Wow that was a long time ago.
    Made my day and trip.

    If you haven't seen them yet, the MotoStarr podcasts on Youtube with Spencer, Rainey, Lawson, Duhamel, etc are outstanding. The episode with Bubba Shobert is really heart wrenching at times too. Really good behind the scenes stories not often shared in their books and other interviews over the decades.

    Another good set of Youtube interviews posted by Ray Henwood & BrooklandsMemberstv with John McGuinness, Kevin Schwantz, Foggy, and others, hysterical funny stuff. Can't wait for the IoMTT to return!

    So what was O'HALLORAN doing at Oulton Park couple weeks back or maybe the "bold moves" by Danny Buchan at Knockhill? Is it the outcome or the racing move itself? And trust me, it's not national pride that concerns me, the US series has been shiite for decades now and I've got little vested interest in Gerloff's success in general, but most world level series have devolved to glorified high dollar spec races with too many prima donnas running around worried about their next energy drink contract or making sure they get another contract for another 58h place finish 40 seconds off the winning pace....

    Rea and Co. can complain all they want, but they know good and darn well that if you don't get out in front immediately, you're circling for 4-8th place when there's so little actual racing and changes of positions, aside from a mechanical or "exceeding track limits" crap. Or arm pump, or having a mental challenge week, or my social media account is mean to me, or whatever else they complain about these days.

    Sorry to rant, but geez, used to be you exceeded track limits and you binned it., lesson learned..now a sensor lets you know??? Might as well have them all on 300cc proddy bikes. Time to get rid of all the rider aids, bring back carbs, bring back some real TTF1 engineering or even revive 500cc 2-strokes and see who's really got the stones to run fast. Nut up or shut up on the world level.

    Shit happens. He owned up to it. Maybe Cal can make you feel better at the next round of MotoGP.

    Marquez looked pretty good last race; leading for awhile. He will be #1 again.
