Please STOP with the weight issue.

Andrea Iannone is 68Kgs or 150 lbs, 5 ft 9.6 inches, He came in 3 last year. I don't hear the Italians making any excuses about this hang-up of weight and height issues. Rossi, Spies, Hayden, Simoncelli are all big and tall guys. The are all feared and they seem to use their height and perhaps weight to much better uses.

I don't think weight is a big issue on a 600.

Looking at the profiles on MotoGP riders like De Angelis, Iannone, Noyes, and others aren't midgets nor are super light weight. There are a lot of riders of that build.

Riders like Cruthlow has had success in BSS and WSS. In AMA Aaron Yates is 6'1" and well over 150 lbs and he's won a couple of SS titles. I'm not sure the size of Karl Harris when he won all those BSS titles but the way he looks now (and I maybe wrong) he doesn't look like he's ever been considered light weight.
