Australia's Anthony Gobert - the idiot-savant of the motorcycle racing world - has had another acrimonious departing of ways with a race team.
Gobert - a phenomenal talent but utter headcase - has already been fired by AMA Ducati teams twice, the Suzuki GP team, the MuZ GP team, and had acrimonious walk-outs from Honda Australia, the Kawasaki World Superbike squad, and the AMA Yamaha team.
Gobert has noone to blame but himself. His continually moronic, arrogant behaviour has meant that his results have never matched the drivel that comes out of his mouth. Who could forget his juvenile ramblings in 1997, claiming that world champ Mik Doohan was "scared" of him? (Doohan won all but 3 races that year. Gobert could not manage a single top-5 finish). Yet every year his same tired supporters claim that this time Goey is "coming back hard". The hype begins again, Goey tells everyone he's gonna kick ass, he starts well, then begins to fuck up and blames everyone but himself.
time teams stopped employing this moron and give some fresh talent a chance.
Gobert has blown it. Let him suffer for it.
The new four-stroke era in Motorcycle Grand Prix has been little short of a disaster for Kawasaki and Suzuki.
When the 4-strokes were introduced last year, Honda's stunning RC211V v-5 blew everything else to the weeds. Yamaha's bike managed (eventually) to win a couple of races in the hands of Max Biaggi, but were left trailing far behind in most races.
Yet even Yamaha's poor year was a spectacular success compared to Suzuki & Kawasaki's GP efforts.
Even in it's second season, the V4 Suzuki - apart from being the ugliest machine in the field - is barely scraping into the top ten. Other than their brief moment of glory in 2000, Suzuki's GP and Superbike teams have been a joke for over a decade, with ill-handling and underpowered machines.
This can't being doing Suzuki's image much good. The stunning new Ducati - which has been faster than all bikes but the Hondas this year - not only looks beautiful, but has been getting amazing results right out of the box. This does wonders for the Ducati reputation and badge with the general public. Yet Suzukis are seen as ugly pieces of unrideable junk. Not a good way to spend millions of dollars, fellas.
It's worse still for Kawasaki, who, despite millions of dollars and two superb riders, regularly have their ZX-RR machine hover around 20th place. As with their unsuccessful ZX7 in the World Superbike series, the ZXRR apparently produces plenty of power but is limited by a primitive chassis which makes the bike nearly unrideable.
I can't see Kawasaki being competitive any time soon. The Big K's bike division simply has never been able to produce race machinery good enough to consistently compete with the other manufacturers.
and Suzuki urgently need some new blood in their race departments, or
they're going to be spending millions getting their arse kicked for a
long, long time to come.
Given the generally psychotic nature of our green movement, this comes as no surprise.
they actually said all this.
Morpheus could learn a thing or two about rambling, philosophical waffle from The Green Left Weekly. They must love talking about it, coz they already reviewed it. And let's not forget Richard Neville's bizzaroid essay.
From the weasels at the Sydney Morning Herald letters section. We start with this howler:
It's always a good time for another raving hate-USA conspiracy theory.
And more lefty promises of Armageddon if Labor isn't returned to power:
Yeah, all that higher employment and better economic management is killing us man.
And another recitation
of the left's favourite lie:
Newsflash dickhead, we were terrorist targets before the war.
Yeesh. I'd hate to
get stuck in an elevator with this lot.
Mark Latham - Labor's loudmouth glass-jawed wimp - delivered another of his moronic speeches which is making the lefty crowd's hearts go pitty-pat.
He's pretty much recycled his usual humbug:
In Labor parlance, this is code for A) signing away our sovereignty to the UN, and B) kissing the ass of Jacques Chirac and Dr. Mahatir.
I thought you were about an independent Australia? And you hope to achieve this by crippling our economic growth at the say-so of junk scientists? To Labor, Australia's well-being plays second fiddle to the decisions of really important international committees.
*choke*splutter*.... oh no, not the Labor way, nah.
Not like branch-stacking, brawls, throwing out successful Prime Ministers.
Those damned machine-men, actually paying attention to public opinion, the bastards.
My favourite moment in Meat-Head's speech is when the big hypocrite baby contradicts himself with this paragraph:
You snivelling hypocrite fucktard. You attack Howard for lack of reform, then in the next paragraph you rant against him for doing just that in writing a constitutional preamble.
Worse, you wail about Howard "not trusting the people", yet you blame him for the lack of a republlic, which was rejected by Australian voters in a referendum. Voters, you remember those don't you, dickcheese? Howard put the republic issue through the democratic process, and you lost. Just like you lost the last three elections. You don't seem too keen on the democratic process when your little ideological bowel movements are rejected by the public. Instead you whinge about powerful elites and our evil authoritarian PM.
crowd goes to a popular vote, they get their arse kicked. So Latham -
the big pansy - cries foul.
I'd love to see this
dopestick go up against Christopher Hitchens on this issue.
Go here to see me vainly attempt to combat the great moral-equivalency crowd: "The jews and muslims are just as bad as each other...the jews must stop the cycle of violence" and similar delusional attitudes.
why I bother.
Say hi to top-notch Zionist Cabal member Aaron. Hurry up and get off blogspot, you dink! The page takes six days to load. Thankfully it's worth it.
Be sure to check out his renovation plans for a certain mosque.
I've mentioned you Aaron, I'll take my delivery of beer and wenches thanks.

This pack of sorry-ass aussie skinny white-boy-wannabe-homeez wankers released a crap-hop track called "77%", screaming their righteous rage about evil white australians to dozens of people around the country. The lyrics are really, really incisive maaaaan......
Same as what?
Uh, by who?
Can't blame ya there sport
Such martyrs, allowed to promote their single on national taxpayer-funded radio.
Well I guess we would if someone were actually beating us.
"You aint buying our CD, yo!!"
And what facts are these, buttstick?
Well isn't this interesting: someone does stuff you don't like, and you feel shame because you have the same colour skin. I thought skin colour didn't matter to you lefty fucktards? Except where white people with jobs are concerned I guess.
I was born in Darwin.
Ooooh, scary guys huh? I suspect the last thing these Dr. Dre Lites fought for was an oversized spliff.
Now you're just confused. We're all a nation of racists, but "ozi" dignity has somehow been destroyed. So we're racists ashamed of our racism. Lay off the weed boys.
For anti-racists, you seem kinda fixated on skin colour.
At least we don't spell "Aussie" as "ozi". Retard.
We haven't. Our economy is outperforming just about everyone and the current government seems kinda popular. Oh, and our uneployment today hit the lowest level since 1997. Oops.
And you guys aren't exactly contributing to our collective IQ, you know?
Sorry, that's New Zealand.
We weren't planning to. Wanker fits pretty well though. Wannabe homeboy is another.
You're denouncing your ancestors now? What wounds? Your bedsores?
And I suggest you lay off the bong.
Try voting sometime. Or running for office. Or, you know, actually doing something useful.
Democracy hurts don't it?
Most Australians were born here, dipshit.
Well, how about not listening to them?
OK, here's a test: pick any aussie pub at random, and tell it to them tough guy. No, I thought not.
Those would be people with jobs then I guess.
Try it, you rapper-wussy-boy, and they'll be siphoning glass out of your ass.
What are you asking me for? You wrote this sloppy turd.
Uh, what blood?
"a couple of fools"? You just said it was 77% of us.
Except when they play your songs, huh?
Here's the obsession with race again.
Wow, he won't be a casualty of his non-existent oppressors. A regular Nelson Mandela.
So, what are you going to do about it?
Uh, pretty much because most of us: a) don't care, b) have jobs
Well, he was at the front of the queue, so no.
"Whiteys". Nah, no racist attitudes here folks.
You gonna make us move, tough guy? I'd like to see you try.
for you to get a job, losers.
Phillip Adams doesn't
want him to. The man can have no greater endorsement. Personally,
I like Beazley. It's the leftist psycho-weasels in his party which scare
the shit out of me. Can you imagine this pack of fuckwits dealing with
other countries? They'd be sucking on the rectums of every UN committee
in existence, letting in more fundamentalist
psychopaths and apologising for our "whiteness" to asian
despots. What a wonderful prospect. Here's hoping they stay out of office
for at least another two terms.
While I was getting my bike serviced, I was given Kawasaki's super-nifty ER5 for the day.
While I might enjoy the lastest and greatest hi-performance bikes, I'm pretty much a fan of anything with two wheels and a motor - from scooters up to Goldwings.
The ER5 does not set pulses racing, and will not make you the envy of others. It is just, well, a motorcycle. But there lies it's strength. The budget 500cc parallel twin might very well be the ideal all-rounder: the super-smooth engine has more than enough grunt for the highway, it's easy to handle, and sounds good too.
The brakes won't exactly cause your eyeballs to pop out, but they offer more than adequate stopping power for this type of motorcycle, and - more importantly - will not intimidate inexperienced riders.
The bike is super-comfy too. Kawasaki's blurb is spot-on here:
They're right. Don't let the ER-5's "commuter" nature fool you: this would make an excellent touring machine.
Frankly, I enjoyed riding this bike more than Honda's CBR900 Hornet or the Kawasaki ZRX1200. It's much easier to throw around and is simply less tiring to ride. The other machines had (lots) more power, but who needs that in traffic? They had very sharp brakes too, but you really don't need them either. They certainly had better-quality suspension (and therefore will better cope with a passenger), but the light handling of the ER5 compensated for that.
The ER5 is a great package. It won't cost you a mint to insure or to maintain. It it light, grunty and confidence-inspiring, and does pretty much anything you want.
If you're starting out in your riding career, or are returning after a long break, and you just want an inexpensive, good quality versatile bike which is fun to ride and easy to look after, it's hard to go past this cracking machine. Sometimes, the press kit gets it right:
The Egyptians have banned Matrix Reloaded. Third-world wankers.
