@ Olek135I

When Lorenzo won his first championship someone tweeted that he would run the 1 plate at request of or in tribute to someone at Yamaha as a one off but if he won any further he would continue to use 99.

Pessimist in me thinks reason he will use his normal number is in no small way connected to his merchandise and marketing arrangements that are all based around 99 in the same way all of Rossi's are around 46.

@Howisitpossible - This topic has been covered many times over the years, but a brief recap. The "Good Friday Agreement" entitles any person from Northern Ireland to choose.

Also Eugene Laverty has been supported by and raced under an Irish racing license for many years.

His two racing brothers, John and Michael have raced under a UK racing license for many years.

It is the riders choice.

Get rid of all the bikes! Especially CRT's, but also 4 stroke expensive as all hell MotoGP bikes and get back to 2 strokes: twice as efficient, half as heavy and with modern electronics double fuel efficient!

And racing get's better and more enjoyable for the rides as well.

Why does nobody see this?
