I don't give a monkey's what tyre they are on, as long as they are all on the same. Come to that scrap all the rider aids, or put them on the same. Save 800 posts argueing who the best rider is.
Go the whole hog and put them all on CX500s.
I think that it's madness when we descend to putting out tyres that are assymetric to stop them falling off.

Yes, this is the new tyre that every team except Honda wants. They were outvoted, and so accepted the decision for it to become the new standard. It will play a major role in evening out the playing field as it can be 'switched on' far easier and faster than the existing front.

Sounds like only a few will get proper tyres for coming rounds. Is this fair? N if it isnt, why do they implement control tyres in the first place? As for change, its just a matter of changing the heat cycle, they warm up faster n fade faster. Nothing miracle about that.
