As for Suzuka it always struck me as a scary track for bikes, T1, the degners, 130R..... certainly looks spectacular watching the Suzuka endurance race each year.

For bikes, runoff at any track is the problem. Suzuka has some bad corners.
Daijiro Kato was killed in the Casino Triangle after crashing in 130R in 2003. That was the beginning of the end for MotoGP at Suzuka. Stopped in 2007 ISTR.

In the US at least, there are really not that many safe motorcycle tracks. Almost all have at least one bad section. Much worse when I started Roadracing in 1991.

Very true, I just can't fathom not liking even one Honda, but cars and taste are completely individual of course so, variety is the spice of life etc. The Senna thing i totally get, I was a little shocked at the very good comment, don't think I've every heard it downplayed quite as much, but still, its all subject to personal opinion.



Ok, the catch and release thing really made me smile :lol::lol: likewise while surprised at the opinions you do have, I have no problem with them :cheers:

Next time I am on your side of the pond we can have a few pints (maybe more than a few) and discuss this.
