I'm right there with you Andy! They are poetry in motion. Rossi is my fav as well. Amazing how close to the asphalt they get cornering.

I watched the whole series and loved it, it was an exciting year. I subscribed to MotoGP around June at a discounted rate, but I have already signed up for 2017. Of course I pull for the old man, it is incredible that he competes at the level he does at his age.

It is surprising to me that it is not popular in the US, it is very exciting to watch. The races are about 45 mins in length, around 20 to 24 laps and they even race in a light rain. Unlike NASCAR team members compete tooth and nail with each other, what happened with the Ducati team was crazy and proves the point.

Unfortunately there are no US riders to pull for but it is easy to find a couple to like, like Rossi, or maybe Dovizioso.

Season starts March 26 in Qatar, which is probably the least exciting track in the whole series, but still a great race.

< - Big fan, I purchased the Application Service last year and loved it and auto-renewed for this year.

I like Rossi, especially after watching Faster and Fastest.

I am not a fan of Marquez because of how he purposely took the championship away from Rossi 2 years ago, but he did mature a ton as a rider last season.

I cannot wait to see what happens this year with Jorge going to Ducati and Vinales to Yamaha.

Not a fan of Marquez either but man does that dude race on the edge of loosing control. Jorge is a force when he gets out front early, glad to see him replace Iannone after what he did to Dovizioso.
