How about i don't agree, and say the Yamaha has moved on in development, forcing Casey and Danny to over ride there Honda's, which in turn has revealed flaws hitherto hidden, how does that sound as a non agreement.

there is nothing hidden , the problem comes from building the bike around different tires that are no longer in use.
the only real way to fix it is build a new chassis around these new tires.
you would think HRC would have done this immediately when the tires were changed.
like ducati they just expect stoner to ride around it and win.
too much pressure on the poor bugga.

then I would suggest you were just saying that to be controversial, in contrast to stating the obvious, in an effort to get a discussion happening, and I would point out that they are not going any faster than they were last year so are unlikely to be revealing any hitherto hidden flaws. Still thanks for the attempt at stimulation in the rather boring bit between actual races. Must apologise for stating the obvious but I have decided not to say anything critical of any of the riders on the basis that they are after all risking their lives, and I am also trying not to be too critical of any of the other posters (its a kind of self improvement thing, I am trying to become a better person) This has backed me into a bit of a corner with regards material to post on....

I expected Casey to do better - but he didn't get there. At least he is wise enough not to throw away 4th pushing it too hard when the bike isn't as good as it could be.

Well at least you have acknowledged the need for self improvement,that's a good start, in my post i was agreeing with your point on Honda being in trouble, with my own interpretation, so sorry you had a problem with it, but hey that's freedom of speech for you,
