Crash.net needs to take a poll asking the following questions: When you post on this site? Are you:

1. Bored
2. Too thick/stupid to involve yourself in sensible discussion so just post insults to feel better about yourself as you are not quite smart enough to contribute a genuine opinion (or indeed form a complete sentence).
3. A Valentino Rossi fan who will keep defending him during his inevitable decline.
4. A Valentino Rossi hater who will dismiss anything he has achieved in his past or will achieve in 2013.
5. An impartial poster who will be swallowed up and ridiculed by 90% or people on here.
6. I only post on here when I am drunk/stoned/wasted.

I bet if people on here were honest, most will go for option 2 and 6.

no, the 2011 Yamaha which was I believe the 2010 redux after they had issues with their bike was much better than their 2012 bike. The 2012 bike and Lorenzo's lines paid great for the weak tire that Bridgestone introduced to help spoil lHonda's superior braking.

I never said the 2012 bike was the same as the 2011 bike, lie 1. Also Marquez race pace is the best this year, if you try to deny that then you are smoking grass. Lorenzo only won at Qatar because Dani was given a bad setup and Marquez was playing it safe for 2/3rds of the race and Marc isnt as good as Lorenzo around Qatar, only Stoner is probably better than Lorenzo at Qatar. Dani could have fought ftw though, but he had no grip for most of the race.

and no, Bridgestone secured the control tire after they secured Rossi's title in 2008, 2009 was clearly Yamaha's year, they dominated that year like nothing else, because of Bridgestone. 2010 ended with the Honda being the best bike but luckily for YFR Dani was injured. Casey came in to 2011 and destroyed Yamaha, Bridgestone in 2012 again built a tire for Yamaha and again Yamaha dominated until mid season when Honda again figured it out (or something else happened, no more Casey?)

Why did Repsol push Honda to go to the control tire? Because they wanted to 'protect their investment', and this year, Repsol will be making good on their investment :) If you can wrap you little minds around that one you might have a chance.

I wonder which bike Ben Spies would have chosen for 2012, his older 2011/2010 bike or the Lorenzo special that had to be run long radius.

His setup was not appropriate for the new and improved bike, because he absolutely destroyed his tires at Assen (I believe), Spies had no chance because he was not wanted and his bike was a pos.

Keep watching Honda destroy Yamaha (the pig) on the brakes, keep watching Honda out drag the Yamaha out of the corners and down the straight, and keep watching Lorenzo not have the superior edge grip (longevity) like he had last year (look at Brno for a good example).

Honda will destroy Yamaha this year, only Bridgestone can slow them down, like Pirelli have slow down RBR. Its all about getting ratings, its not about competition.
