I have to agree there.
They were the MOST aggrivating to pass.
ALL kinds of jump down the straights, but nothing in the corners.

They did help me learn about getting on the gas earlier in corners though
...and braking a (little) later before turn 1

(still have a LONG way to go, rICEman, I know!)

It wasn't just the last MotoGP series of the year, it was the last Moto 125 race, ever. I, for one, will miss those little bees. It not only took bike-handling skills to keep the rubber side down, it took real racing skills to get out in front of the pack of almost-identical machines. This is one reason that Moto2 is so exciting from a racing perspective; it really shows the racing skills, not just the death-defying skills.

Next year the Moto3 will be as exciting, I hope. And it probably will be, too, given the success of Moto2.
