The horror....

In a shock announcement to a crowded press conference called at the Red Bull MotoGP Academy, Alberto Puig confirmed one of the best kept and most suprizeing secrets in motorsport since Guy Martin 'came out', that the 46 year old would partner Kevin Schwantz in the coming Suzuka 8hr. The native Barcelonian was quoted as saying 'with the amount of talent me and Kevie baby we have decided in order to give the other riders a chance we will both be on the bike for the entire race, we also considered removing one wheel, being blindfolded or even using a ducati, but settled on the pillion plan'. Kagayama had confirm the GSX-R had been modifyed with the addition of a screaming eagle sissy bar and duct taping a pillow to the self supporting carbon fiber tail section. The orignal plan of using a sidecar when shelved due to time constrants.

Benny you are funny!!  At least it will be a best seller.  Cant see the "Life of a Moaner" selling many copies can you!  It would have big letters like a chlidrens book and not many pages,Gone fishing the end!  What about the 08 to 10 slump for chapter

Like Saturn says.  He has nothing left to prove in the sport and like us all at some point age creeps up, but i Somehow  think that the final chapter is written yet

A little skewed there Rev

It was Salman's own that burned his book.

Can't see anyone getting too bothered about a Casey book.

Leather Necks

Good on you Schwantz and Yukio! Should call yourselves Team Lizard since both your faces look like crocodile leather.

He would not write one as he would know only a hand full of copies would be sold.  For the same reason as you never seen any Merchandising stands at a MotoGP event for #27

Let see if that limp wristed prick Puig will make a late entry with his rent boy Pedrosa...?

Probably not as he'd have his ass handed to him on a plate again, then again actually he might like that.....!

that he has mentored new talent I question, no one would refuse his presence in the garage (except COTA) but I doubt it dropped the lap times. Suzuka? a hefty tumble will break a lot of bones, how good is his depth perception now? etc Growin old hasn't changed for centuries.
