Wow what the heck happen to the R7? It has sucked ass every year in AMA and now it is kicking ass. Is Gobert really that good? Well all I got to say is that was one cool race. I liked how speedvision showed all the diffrent cameras on the bikes and they didn't say anything for first lap. They need to do that for everyy race.
M.O. how hard is it for you guys to understand this. Almost everyone here agrees that you guys shouldn't post the name of the winners in the title. How many times do we have to ask for this before you guys take action? Once again please do not post the names of the winner in the title. Thank you.
i still would like to walk in a dealership & try to buy a harley VR1000. isn't that a requirement for homologation in the AMA? i've never seen one (except on the track), or heard of anybody owning one. what's the deal here after 7 seasons?
Please, return to the standard. Put the winner in the title. It's done in all other forms of sports journalism. It's done on other web sites. The 3 to 15 seconds it takes to get from the title to the story is not "suspense". At least not where I come from. Or maybe I'm just an ignorant fool.
Most of us in the USA won't see any of these races on TV until Tuesday.
We read MO not just for racing results, but for other news as well.
Therefore, putting the names of the winners right there on the news page days before our first opportunity to watch the race is quite a spoiler.
It would be like if you were going to Weather.com to see what the forecast is for your area, and right between the Tuesday forecast and the Wednesday forecast was a description of the surprise ending of the movie you haven't seen yet. You weren't reading the web site for movie plot spoilers, but there it was: Then you wouldn't have as much fun watching the movie.
The same doesn't apply to other sports like football or hockey, because generally you can watch that stuff on TV live.
Don't feel bad for misunderstanding the situation.
Thanks for trying to explain. I understand your position, but, still think it's a little absurd (no offense intended). Perhaps you should stay off site till you see the race. From my perspective, headlines that actually contain information are a good thing. They help me decide if I'm going to read further.
AT the end of the day, it's not an issue I'm willing to die for, so, have it your way if that's the majority opinion.
actually i do not want one. it just keeps reminding me of the last incident i remember, when Hyper Cycle's owner/crew chief was banned from even being around the race tracks a few years back, when a post-race tear down revealed that he had modified his ss bikes beyond the rules, & his riders were disqualified as a result, if my memory serves me right.
I don't think it's absurd to not want the race spoiled for you. Some of the MO staff are making a joke of the headline and lead paragraph in the stories when they try not to reveal the results. If they took a slightly more proffesional approach to this they could have headlines and intro paragraphs that are interesting without revealing the results.
I come to this site several times each day and i often do not want to know the race results because i usually don't get to see the race untill a few days after it happens. However, I still like to come to this site to read other news from moto-land.
Please MO, don't post spoilers on the front page, but you don't have to be rediculous about it either.

P.S.-why does it say welcome mo user millencolin at the top of my screen, and yet this message says anonymous squid when i preview it?
It was a great race, even though it was only two guys dicing. Too bad Nicky couldn't keep the front end down when he squared off that last corner. As for telemetry, it seemed to be lagging because matt would be well out of the corner before the brake light went off and the rpms went up. Besides that I was very surprised (by the new tech for telemetry on tv to viewers) and enjoyed that first lap multi-bike view of the race. I Liked that better than WSB and GP setups.
I think Tommy may be doing an Eric Bostrom and losing his confidence (started after tommy crashed in 99) while his brother is showing off. Maybe he will started sliding the bike in and out of corners like he used to on the 600. In the end, he is probably not as good as Gobert but when he and Nicky went at it in 99 all season long it was beautiful.
Hey, while you guys are acting like morons over this not putting the race winner's name in the article's title thing, you failed to mention Anthony Gobert was the first person ever to win the Superbike and Supersport events on the same race weekend. Way to work those reporting skills.
