I know a lot of people dislike Honda in racing for some reason but their mcycles have always served me well IRL from C90s to fireblades. So I hope they do well at Motegi.

Stoner has three other top of the line riders, including two world champions, on the same spec bike but it is only the bike that lets him win. Just like the best bike in 2010, the Ducati, let him win at this track. When he was on the same Aprillia 250 as half the field in 2005, only his superior bike let him win 5 races. Valentino has never had the superior bike and all his championships were pure riding skill on inferior equipment. Bautista is as good as Stoner so if he can only get 6th or 7th, that is where Stoner would finish on the Suzuki. My superior knowledge of MotoGP lets me make such superior observations. I have to go now, it is time to take my tablets and have my nap.

re: "It's a darn shame that Yamaha brought a knife to a gun fight. This track exposes Yamahas lack of investment in the last year of the 800's."

curious... after 5 years, 3 championships, and what is without a doubt the most expensive R&D program in GP history (even more than the 212), what makes you think there's anything of significance left on the table at this point worth investing in...? not saying 100% that there isn't something to be found, but google the term "law of diminishing returns".
