Thought you would have been down there.

A mate went down on his 1198S, but sadly work prevented me from heading down.

I know that there's a mixed bag of supporters/detractors out there, but I'm an unashamed Stoner fan

No doubt a sensational weekend. Was good on the box but would have been way better in real life

Bass straight grandstand...you can question some of things Casey has said in the media, but you cannot question his talent.....he was the only rider sliding the bike sideways through turn 3. Great weekend.

He is just awesome - pure class in a glass!
We had our honeymoon there in 2009 when he smoked everyone on the Ducati and it was unbelievable what he could do with the bike around PI.
He wears his heart on his sleeve and opens his mouth without a care but his riding ability is most definitely unquestionable.
A shame he is retiring as primarily he was the one keeping Lorenzo quiet

Pretty much every time someone breaks way ahead and just dominates (Pol Espargaro), I now call it pulling a Stoner

Unbelievably, I think he would have had the championship this year if it weren't for his crash and foot.

People slammed him for speaking his mind, but to be honest, alot of his gripes I agree with. I used to root for Lorenzo, but his ego has gotten away from him and now he's a tool.

Stoner is an unquestionable talent. He's smart to leave if he's not having any fun, but I will miss watching him ride.

^Really? I see the opposite (regarding Lorenzo). I couldn’t stand him when he first entered GP, and think his ego was bigger back then. He seems to have mellowed, and was really nice when I met him a couple years ago.
