@ Jerginz

"How far back is "back when". I don't remember seeing a lot of passing at any time during Rossi's motogp career at least. While he was dominating, motogp was at its worst. His first title came when only about 6 guys had the new 4 stroke machines for the majority of the season and the rest of the field was on not just inferior bbikes but not even using the same tech! Since Lorenzo and Stoner came, motogp haz been a 100 times more competitive!"

BozGP - Your a fool. You clearly no nothing about Moto GP Rossi or its history. So you say he won his first tile when he had the new four stroke machine?? What about his title the season before on a 500cc?? Doesn't that count? Thought not.

Stop making yourself look silly.

Barros beat Rossi on equal equipment fair and square in the end of 2002 season, when Honda give him RC211V for last four races which Rossi was ridden whole year.

Profx (PCXMAc,
Your funnier.
"As for being launched in to space, not hardly, traction control is not about safety, its about optimizing/managing the speed/acceleration of the rear wheel in order to achieve more effective grip."

And what happens the power is too vicious on a 250hp bike to grip?

PS when the fuel light comes on its too late!

Rossi is a waste of a seat at this point. What else can Dorna do to hand him a title? He pretty much gets to pick any bike on the grid. He still gets air time, newspaper space and produces garbage results. Worst part is when/if he wins a single race he will get his goat label back, as if 1 win in 3 seasons warrants something like that.

Can't wait for this guy to disappear, hopefully his crap fans go with him.

@RSMick, dont bother piloting a motorcycle or designing interfaces.

the riders never get to 250hp on the sides of the bikes, 250hp is at top rpm, I think you need to get a hold of your understandings about what power is vs torque and rpms, the torque/power curves, gearing, etc...

The right hands/wrists are the biggest safety devices those guys have. Please check your brain at the door.

Even funnier, ever heard of gears and quarter turn throttles?
Ever heard a bike screaming and burbling through a corner? You don't keep the throttle on you'll be down, you never heard even WSS bikes burbling from midway in the corner and get upright asap.
WHy do you think bikes don't get 250bhp through the corners on full throttle? oh yes TC

If we get rid of Lorenzo,Pedroza,Marqes the rookie Stoners already gone and bring back Sete and Kenny jnr and Max just maybe we might see Rossie win again because let's face it that's where he built reputation .
