Gary's a good guy - he deserves better than what he's had in MotoGP. I hope her gets a competetive ride. Could just be checking it out though....

I agree with everyone Mccoy is an awesome rider, his style is just outrageous. All I know of him is what I've read and seen on Faster but he does seem like a genuinely good guy I'd like to see him race again.

Only if the Alstare boys switch to Ohlins from Showa, as Showa is a Honda subsidiery, and afaik, still have a ban on Biaggi.

gary is a good fella... just lacks a bit of luck and the usual tough time aussie rider's get... not being as attractive to a team as a spanish rider with a big marketing appeal

prejudices are what fools use for reason

by 2002, garry was very quickly becoming the king of the 500's, the man was incredible, did everything exactly like everyone said you can't do it, and demolished the ones that spoke against him.

Unfortunatly, his style IS so radically different, that I don't think we'll see him do well unless someone decides to build the bike around him. If Biaggi is his teammate however.... I very much doubt we'll see that happen, which is a sad thing, 'cause I'd LOVE to see the guy on a first tear bike, see what he could do. But he's above the age of 12 and not spanish, so the odds of him getting a #1 bike are pretty much 0.

and yes... the mullet was cool, but I liked the mohawk better, was one of the best mohawks I've ever seen. He was sporting a Comanche for awhile to.

the bike is called the X3, Garry just sent an email to all his fanclub saying that he's taking questions on it, and that there's more news to come soon.

meh, maybe an exagerration, but he was sooooo good on the 500's, and never got it together on the 4-strokes.

I guess the only real candidates for kings of the 500's in 2002 tho where Jeremy McWilliams, him, and Alex.
