Wot A Rubbish Bike !!!!! - Unregistered

I will not start on with the hole motogp ride thing etc as everyone got the own point on that. But with regards to his moto2 bike last year at indy he finished 4th with a time of 45.53.990 this year finished 16th with a time of 45.53.003 so he was faster this year just. So you can see how much every other bike has improved and moved on where the tech3 has not really changed. As for the bit where he said suter had 6 or 7 chassis a loan you can see wot he up against as tech3 don't really have the cash, and as for the new fairing he got a mugello and wrecked after waiting all year for it and then saying they will be available at indy wot a load of tosh it only a few fairing and suter got all these new chassis etc and that really only have the problem.

These BRITISH riders do love to moan a lot,don't they.At least another rider(nameless)moans an wins races an championships an collects his bonus,even though hurt.I also think that carl is a blatant crasher,who does'nt learn anything from crashing at all.

sick cylinder.
Ben Spies is leaving for health reasons,mamely because riding for Yamaha is bad for his health.I heard Casey is selling how to videos,on how to ride a Ducati.My opinion is that a few riders can get on with a production bike,not with a Prototype racer.An it has been that way forever.

Not only did Suter bring a number of new frames for their riders last week, Marquez had three continuous days of testing and development before the summer break while Luthi was there for the last day. It's pointless trying to persuade people who've already made their minds up. Ignorance and certainty are a common combination. We'll see how Smith gets on next year. He's beaten various team mates by a good margin for the majority of the races while he's been at Tech 3, including an ex-world champion. I was pleased to see Simon back near the front at Indianapolis. Do people think he'd forgotten how to ride after winning the 125 championship and being 2nd in the first season of Moto2, or can they see there are factors which mask a rider's potential if you look at their finishing position alone?
