AMA Pro Superbike YOSHIMURA SUZUKI FACTORY RACING

Irish Real Road Racing Motorcycle Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland

With great power comes great responsibility. And make no mistake, Suzuki is nothing if not a great power. Particularly when it comes to road racing. For more than half a century, Suzuki has dominated AMA Pro Superbike racing – both literally and figuratively. No other manufacturer even comes close to approaching the extraordinary number of records that Suzuki has set within this genre of racing. From the number of championships captured, to the amount of races won, to the pole positions set, Suzuki is without peer.

That said, the great responsibility that goes into nurturing this road racing legend and continuing its championship-winning ways falls squarely on the very capable shoulders of Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing. Fortunately, the successful team is more than up to the challenge.

Newest Yoshimura Suzuki team member Martin Cardenas is no other than the reigning AMA Pro Daytona SportBike Champion, who will shed the 600 class for AMA Pro Superbike in 2013. Cardenas joins returning Yoshimura Suzuki rider Chris Clark, who’s starting his second season with the team. Clark is both enthusiastic and optimistic about the start of the 2013 season and he is looking forward to building on the momentum that he began accumulating in 2012.

Both Cardenas and Clark will campaign the premier road race class on the championship-winning Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000. Thanks to Suzuki’s proven Championship DNA and innovative technology, the new year can only bring with it a new championship.

No doubt about it, the 2013 AMA Pro Superbike season will once again see Suzuki Own The Racetrack.

The Psychology of Motorcycle Racing & Sexual Performance

Irish Real Road Racing Motorcycle Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland

Despite the passing of time many can still apparently recall being there, witnessing it first hand –not moi, to young - chain smoking, beer guzzling motorcycle road racers, as if the sport didn’t present enough dangers. Many stars of yesteryear played Russian roulette with lung cancer, then inebriated in charge of a high speed motorcycle, endangered the lives of others – and their own - many are no longer with us. Throughout Ireland it sometime seems little has changed – apart from the drugs related scourge which continues to blight most sport.

Elsewhere around the world, sport has become a business, winning is now a science – today, if you’re not 100% spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically prepared you will not be one of the winners. To control a high powered motorcycle – likewise a sexually highly charged woman – moi for instance, one has to be more than physically fit, one has to possess self-confidence, be willing to do whatever it takes to succeed - as long as it's fair and legal, even moi is willing.

It has been proven time and time again, when the machine has become an extension of the body, almost an extra limb, you have arrived in the fast zone - an unstoppable winning combination is a rider in perfect harmony with his/her machine. Problem is though, whilst with the assistance of obligatory laptop, highly advanced technology machine problems are often magically diagnosed and rectified – reprogramming that altogether more complex machine – the human mind – isn’t ever quite so straightforward.

While it’s true that being physically fit will enable you to wrestle a high powered motorcycle around a race track, to be truly competitive also requires mental fitness. Many amateur and professional riders suffer from psychological problems – some more deep rooted than others – confidence usually being the numero uno hindrance to success, or to be more precise - a lack of confidence.

The increasing number of sport scientists and performance consultants being gainfully employed by professional motorcycle road racers is an indication of how competitive the sport has become in recent times, achieving the best results possible – winning - the top priority. To help riders perform better and more consistently, psychologists examines what motivates them – including their choice of music - explores their emotions, thoughts, beliefs – perhaps more importantly though - does any of this psychology improve their sexual performance?

Death of Irish Motorcycle Road Racing - Are You Responsible?

Irish Real Road Racing Motorcycle Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland

Ireland, the Emerald Isle world renowned for its spectacularly diverse scenery, dramatic rugged mountains, picturesque olde world villages, tranquil lakes and stunningly beautiful coastline - today though, our forty shades of green landscape has been severely ravaged by the worst recession since – the last one. Having by now cut costs to the bone in this austerity plagued world, many companies - potential sponsors - are still struggling to remain solvent which could very well be the final nail in the coffin - the sport of Irish motorcycle road racing is facing extinction.

Whether or not you concur with what you’re perhaps about to read is of no consequence, it had to be said - simple as that. Most of the negative perceptions many potential sponsors from the local business sector have of Irish motorcycle road racers are well deserved. In days of not so yore, some rider’s supporters clubs were so notoriously unsavoury - several former members are rumoured to allegedly now work for the Mafia or perhaps vice versa. The long-term damage inflicted on the reputation of Irish motorcycle road racing by those unscrupulous members will haunt the sport for many more years.

When one considers the more recent times very public childish outbursts and downright dangerous on track antics of a few of our less than professional riders – the task of reversing the negative perceptions of potential sponsors becomes all too painfully obvious. Such unacceptable behaviour must be dealt with - past personal glories nor past glories of related others should ever be considered as mitigating circumstances – without fear or favour, Governing bodies should show no quarter to sin or sinners.

Two very simple unpleasant facts - many Irish motorcycle road racers are facing early retirement - Irish motorcycle road racing is facing extinction. Most certainly one can blame those who have for years failed to implement effective safety measures for real road racing events that would radically reduce the unacceptable waste of human lives. One has to recognise that any competitors, and/or spectators, who are killed and/or maimed at real road racing events - are people - none of whom deserve to die as a result of the sheer incompetence of self-serving others.

Also, we can rightly blame, the equally ineptly incompetent self-serving anti-democratic Government, the promoting Clubs/Limited Companies, the ghoulish freeloading fans, dubious riders supporters clubs, the disreputable competitors who allegedly rode off into the sunset – with the cash, and at times, the bike – and of course, some equally questionable team owners. When future historians of the sport look back on this time, they will no doubt declare all of the aforementioned were equally responsible for the untimely demise of Irish motorcycle road racing.

Irish Teenage Girls Flaunting Guide for Road Racing Dinosaurs

Irish Real Road Racing Motorcycle Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland

The teenagers of today have the power to determine the future careers of many Irish motorcycle road racers – hopefully they will be afforded the opportunity to do so wisely. Research of a not unrelated travesty, revealed also – a catalogue of missed opportunities to provide Irish motorcycle road racers an altogether safer environment to enjoy their chosen sport. Proposed International standards short circuit race tracks - extensive upgrades to existing unfit facilities - all shamefully scuppered by self-serving buffoons who cared nought about the lives of others – only recently has a minisule token gesture been made to assist the Bishopscourt circuit.

Held on all four of Ireland’s most famous circuits the highly regarded Irish Short Circuit Championship continues to assert itself as the greatest motorcycle road race series in – Ireland. So highly regarded is this championship it triggers an annual exodus of all self-respecting Irish motorcycle road race competitors – the majority of whom are – teenagers – winners and future winners of Elsewhere Championships. Presumably they prefer not to be used as cannon fodder for the benefit of the Dinosaurs - or as sacrificial lamb entertainment for any freeloading blood thirsty Neanderthal real road race fan. Other totally unacceptable problems though might also quite possibly be responsible for the aforementioned exodus - sectarianism, and sexism which have allegedly shamefully forced riders from motorcycle race paddocks in this still divided society of Ireland.

Leastways for those who have fully embraced it, social media has proven to be a truly awesome, most useful invention. For young people it has become an integral part of their lives - girls even more than boys, are using it each and every minute of every day of the year to communicate with millions of other likeminded people all over the world - fashion, music, motorcycle road racing and sex are all debated - intelligently.

Media savvy teenage girls, women, females – moi included she brazenly boasts, all know what we want, and for those interested in the world of motorcycle racing – it is civilised access without sexism, and/or sectarianism. Sadly though for Irish motorcycle racing, we are all rumoured to have been long ago pigeon holed by the Dinosaurs - as the undesirables – our views are disregarded therefore so to - is our disposable income.

Another website recently advised MotoGP to get its act together and capitalise on todays cashed up female market which for the Madrid Dinosaurs – now also ringmasters of WSBK – should be a relatively easy task, if not for the fact – television money is seemingly thus far easier acquired. Not so for the teams and riders though for whom sponsorship funding is proving to be more than difficult – impossible for some, and with plummeting spectator attendance figures, in the current recession, that downward trend is likely to continue.

Here in Ireland the problems are altogether more complex though – unlike the freeloading Neanderthals who see motorcycle road racing as a blood sport, the new breed of fans are a trifle more civilised. The upwardly mobile young women of today with disposable income are more knowledgeable than many of their male counterparts. A brief glance of the postings on some of the motorcycle racing message boards/forums reveals views which put these Neanderthal subscribers in a league of ignorance that borders on total insanity.

The Laverty Brothers, Jonathan Rea, Keith Farmer, Nicole McAleer and many, many more of our top flight road racers have a growing fan base of young people – male and female - which all concerned have thus far failed to capitalise upon. Unfortunately for the teams and riders, whilst some travel to the UK mainland events and further afield - mainly they are forced to follow the action on television and/or via the Internet – the circuit facilities at our Irish venues being no better – possibly worse - than those found at some Banana Republic shanty towns.

The time to bring new sponsors to the sport is now, fashion houses, cosmetic companies – how many teams and/or riders have approached retailers such as Primark, TopShop, Calvin Klein, ASOS, La Senza, Ann Summers, et al – have you? Yesterday was the time to think outside the box – today is the time to get out of the box and flaunt yourself before it is too late – take action now, write to any company whose target market is primarily today's trendsetting young women, and/or young men – make appointments, go convince these companies that motorcycle road racing is a professional sport – as are you - hopefully! Remember this though, to avoid shooting yourself in the foot – should mention be made of the allegedly ineptly incompetent amateur self-serving Dinosaurs – disassociate yourself from the discredited buffons.


So anyway, there were these three Dinosaurs, and the first one – he allegedly married a mail order bride from somewhere in Asia, after which he told her that everyday, she was to do the dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.

And the second Dinosaur, he allegedly married a mail order bride from somewhere in Eastern Europe, after which he gave his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. The first day he didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done and there was a huge dinner on the table.

Now the third Dinosaur, believe it or not, allegedly married an Irish girl, and he allegedly ordered his new wife to keep the house clean, the dishes washed, the lawn mowed, and hot meals on the table for him and his Dinosaur cronies when they came to visit. Now on the first day he didn't see anything at all, the second day he still didn't see anything but on the third day - some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, also his arm had begun to heal just enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher. Mind you, he still has much difficulty and pain each time he has to pee!!!!

The Case of the Married Virginal Dinosaurs Extramarital Affairs

Irish Real Road Racing Motorcycle Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland

More than likely there are those people who are convinced that Barbiegirl – moi – is of the opinion real road racing should be banned without further ado - to many serious injuries, to many deaths. Not the case, the real issue is the MCUI-UC aka Motorcycle Union of Ireland (Ulster Centre) Limited – moi believes its very existence is threatening the sport, not to mention the lives of numerous riders and spectators. Real road racing safety simply has to be drastically improved, a feat the MCUI-UC Dinosaurs have ably demonstrated they are incapable of achieving – Task Force 2000.

Rest assured though, the sport will probably - possibly - continue for as long as there are those people at the helm who are more than willing to sacrifice the lives of others for their own ends, and can afford to do so - without fear of hindrance. If the time ever comes though, when our anti-democratic government decides to enforce safety regulations upon the sport, it will no doubt obviously grind to a halt, but it is never going to happen.

Approaching fast though - a much greater threat to its existence - the ongoing deep recession which could ultimately starve the promoting Clubs/Limited Companies of their only income source - sponsors. Losing sponsors would be akin to severing the artery which carries the lifeblood of the sport - cash - without which, the sport will surely die a not so lingering death.

Banning motorcycle real road racing altogether is not an option our anti-democratic dysfunctional Government can afford to even contemplate either, next would be demands for the banning of alcohol, cigarettes – please ban cigarettes – equine burgers, laundered fuel, illegal drugs, abortions, sex – a sex ban – I’d rather die!

According to a report, many are those who die as virgins – not specified was how many were nuns and/or priests – more worrying though is the number of men who die whilst indulging in sexual activities, and not all were engaging in erotic asphyxiation play – those eejits deserve to die anyway. Listed amongst the many who have simply succumbed to cardiac arrest whilst having their way with a willing female - Attila the Hun and Nelson Rockefeller.

Of some assurance to some - though not to moi - is the alleged fact that those most at risk of sudden death during sex - are the married men playing away from the marital bed. Unlike those though, who care nought about the lives of others - until possibly the next time, for moi, married men are off the menu – a la carte included - unless of course they can produce certified medical declaration confirming fitness to participate in extreme physical exertion. One would much prefer her chosen men not die doing something they truly enjoy – whether that be riding a motorcycle or moi – surely it is better to die doing something altogether less exhilarating - far less memorable.

Irish Real Road Racing and the Neanderthal Dinosaurs

Irish Real Road Racing Motorcycle Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland

The MCUI-UC Dinosaurs are not alone in their alleged efforts to kill off real road racing – ably aiding and abetting - members of a previously thought to be extinct human subspecies. These cretinous creatures can be observed lamenting the rising price of the beer they’ve been sitting around drinking for most of the winter months - whilst crying about the impending demise of their favourite summer pastime - pouring beer down their throats whilst through an alcoholic haze - they enjoy their day of free entertainment.

These freeloading Neanderthals appear to believe draping themselves provocatively over some gilded hedge to invite an albeit brief, but nonetheless satisfyingly dangerous intimate relationship with a passing high speed motorcycle - is an integral part of their long extinct culture. On the seventh day, or was it the eighth – God allegedly decreed these freeloader cretinous Neanderthals had the right to endanger the lives of many, including their own. Contrary though to what these parasites also seemingly choose to believe - the hedges around our public roads motorcycle race circuits are not part of any real road racing ancestral Neanderthal domain – they’re merely best forgotten mythological tales of their freeloader Neanderthal forefathers.

Greed also can, and does destroy sport, as can professionalism - something the MCUI-UC Dinosaurs could never be accused of being. To a profit making Limited Company though, the sport of real road racing is a business - the bottom line of which is, as one would expect – financial gain. The money madness of the few is destroying our sport, the MCUI-UC aka Motorcycle Union of Ireland (Ulster Centre) Limited for instance, have allegedly now introduced financial penalties for those already cash starved Clubs/Limited Companies that would dare to cancel their planned event.

Might one boldly suggest the alleged self-serving financially astute Dinosaurs are on this occasion – how is it possible for moi to put this without causing offence – moronically stupid perhaps - allegedly? How would it be possible for promoting Clubs/Limited Companies – some of which are already allegedly technically insolvent - to financially award the MCUI-UC when they cannot even procure the necessary meagre funding to stage their traditional real road racing events? Hardly will they ever raise even an infinitesimal amount of funding from the freeloading parasite Neanderthal ‘fans’ who have as much specific knowledge of the sport as the Dinosaurs – which one would suggest as being next to nought or to put it more bluntly, on a par with the Dinosaurs alleged knowledge of the sport.

For the uninformed - Barbiegirl isn’t the only person who is of the opinion the Dinosaurs interest in resolving anytime soon the serious safety issues of real road racing is disingenuous. Other warnings were allegedly also voiced in 2012 that real road racing faced the axe if drastic changes were not implemented before the 2012 season got underway. The infamous Roads Inspection Committee of the MCUI needed a shake-up, and had to take on board the views of experienced riders – they don’t listen to the riders and no-one on the committee knows what it is like to ride a modern-day Superbike or the potential for what can happen if something goes wrong.

King of the Roads Ryan Farquhar allegedly also went on to authoritively suggest that Superbikes and even Supersport machines have become too powerful for national road races, and allegedly continued by stating there was supposed to have been big changes made in 2012 but what happened – a few more prohibited areas were introduced plus a couple of chicanes and that was about the height of it.

When the findings of two independent track inspections of each and every one of Northern Ireland’s motorcycle real road racing circuits (conducted in 2011 and 2012) were recently compared, the evidence revealed - was as one expected. Apart from the road surface deterioration that simply beggars belief – there was no evidence whatsoever of any track safety improvements – although one does admit it is perhaps possible the MCUI-UC safety improvements are so devilishly subtle they're invisible to the naked eye. Will the 2013 Irish real road racing season bring forth any meaningful life saving improvements from the MCUI-UC Dinosaurs - or will we be witnessing other grieving families erect roadside memorials to their departed loved ones?

MCUI-UC Dinosuars - The Saviours of Irish Real Road Racing!!

Irish Real Road Racing Motorcycle Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland

The recession hasn’t gone away you know, nor will it any time soon – the truth is – it’s going to get much worse before it gets even slightly better – for many – it’s depressing, seriously depressing. Thanks to record inflation the cost of living is rocketing skywards – perhaps towards deep space – budgets are being squeezed, except of course for the mega rich, and the financially astute that were prepared for it - surviving the recession is proving to be somewhat easier. If one was to believe the hype though, just as they allegedly failed to take action to improve Irish motorcycle real road racing safety – the MCUI-UC are not recession proof which could very well sound the death knell for the sport.

Real Road Racing DinosuarThe Northern Ireland economy has been shrinking for quite some time, with some experts predicting meltdown - individuals and families are struggling as their disposable income continues to plummet. Unemployment levels are rising at an alarming rate - basic essentials like food, fuel, alcohol, skimpy dresses, and so much more – all rapidly progressing toward a higher level, including my dresses - and the insurance without which motorcycle real road racing will flounder and die. Will any other scheduled 2013 real road racing events fall victim to alleged MCUI-UC indifference?

The Motorcycle Union Of Ireland (Ulster Centre) Limited whose business activities are officially recorded as Activities Of Sport Clubs – reportedly had in its latest Annual Accounts submitted to Companies House for the year up to 31/08/2011 - 'cash at bank' of £92,708, 'liabilities' worth £19,263, 'net worth' of £159,610 and 'assets' worth £167,192.

Whether those figures included the Bonds, and Bank Investments as mentioned in MCUI-UC Financial Investments v Irish RRR Rider Safety is unclear, but for sure – if the MCU-UC aka Motorcycle Union Of Ireland (Ulster Centre) Limited was anything other than a profit making company and halfway interested in the future of motorcycle real road racing in Northern Ireland – it would surely be subsidising the promoting clubs to help pay for the huge hikes in insurance premiums.

Whilst one could possibly quite easily be tempted to allege that the foregoing is not a route the MCUI would ever choose to take, the fact allegedly remains that had the Dinosaurs actually acted to drastically improve safety for competitors and spectators alike – the ever increasing number of claims now being made by bereaved families, riders, and fans - would be nothing more than a bad dream. Task Force 2000 was an opportunity missed – the Dinosuars have themselves now sounded the death knell for realroadracing in Northern Ireland.
