SELECTIVE AMNESIA, AGAIN ...
It was nice of our highly educated and uber-intellectual cobber, Milky Bars to drop by and shine his light on things. Pity he made such a big silly-arse of himself in the process. In pointing the finger at “uneducated Australians” he forgot that when you point the finger, there are 3 others pointing back straight at you!
Let’s see now: Humble spray painter, Oz bloke too – 52 Wins in WSBK and World Champion 3 x times. B4 that BSB Champ too! Just to rub it in, he goes and runs away with the very last ever 990cc MotoGP Race at Valencia when substituting for the injured Seti Gibernau . This was definitely a bit bloody embarrassing for the Team that fired him a couple of years before – not for any lack of riding talent, you understand – just because European sponsors wanted the Aussie out and Spanish rider in. That figures – no-one ever got an even break coming from New Zealand or Australia and the ANZACS usually have to battle their way through Dogpatch and Shitsville Series races to even get noticed. All the while, the Euro-pansies are on the Rolls Royce route with the top machinery, gear, tyres and sponsorship. They have the Amex Platignum Card – the lads from down under have a stick with dog pooh on it or the rough end of a Pineapple. Once up there, however – the antipodean lads usually cream the opposition. Hello – anyone remember Hugh Anderson (multiple World Champ) or Ginger Malloy, Keith Turner and Graeme Crosby -all 2nd in the 500cc World GP Titles when the MV’s etc used to win my MINUTES. Crosby got so frustrated & chunked-off by the Euro-politics in his Team he “retired” and walked away from it all immediately after coming 2nd in 1981 - and went home to fly aircraft and become a multi-millionaire. Then came Wayne Gardner and Mick Doohan- who installed swimming pools. Heard of any of these “uneducated” guys, Milky Bars, you genius? Can we add Casey Stoner to the list of struggle street battlers too without you and the rest of the Zombies taking an infarction? I suppose in some Brit eyes, Carl Fogarty was a Neuro-Surgeon before he raced bikes.
Now let’s go back to Troy Bayliss whom we started-off talking about. He almost singlehandedly developed the Ducati SBK’s for years. After 2 years off bikes he tested for Ducati in May 2010 and then again in mid June this year –doing over 1,000 klicks at Mugello on the SBK and the Super Stocker. The poor, old, ignorant “uneducated” bloke was STILL far faster than the official Ducati Test riders and on Lap Record pace. Oh, the poor mega-wealthy, happy and “uneducated” bugger! Why, he is almost as miserable as Gardner, Doohan and Stoner too - all multi-milionaires. The trouble with MCN is that any low-life moron with a half-baked opinion or a load of biased bullshit to peddle can get on here and go for it. That’s OK – but there are others that actually believe them - so it becomes the ‘”blind deaf & dumb” leading others just as bad and intellectually-handicapped in a race to the bottom of the shallow, oozy end of the pool. This rubbish should always be corrected. It’s just my job and it’s in the stars. Somebody has to do it. Cheers
