As I have said, MM is a breath of fresh air to Moto GP.
Really interesting to hear his comment on chatter,

"Now, at each circuit I still suffer some chatter, but compared to Moto2 it is almost nothing."

Go back to last year when a certain person just kept whinging and bitching about chatter. Not this guy, he just accepts it, gets on with it, and still wins.
Oh and almost forgot, always smiling.
Who misses CS? Not me.

Motojunky...stoner never complained about the chatter , he complained about ..why.. they had chatter , two tyre changes and removing the existing ones from being an option left the bikes screwed , the chatter MM is getting at repsol is a pinprick compared to what stoner and pedrosa had to deal with last year.

Who's CS never heard of him. But Marquez is a likeable guy and is very fast. He has a good chance of winning the title but would still like Pedrosa to do it especially if Rossi can't narrow the gap. MM will get his chances in the future if he doesn't get the title this year.

"all you have to do is look at the motogp worshipers praying for their new idol. makes me wanna puke."

I agree, never knew so many Justin Beiber fans watched MotoGP

"Who's CS never heard of him."

Visit the Ducati Museum, you'll find his name on most of the MotoGP trophies (including a Riders WC) Ducati have in their collection

Between CS & DP they won 12 races last year (2 thirds)so what ever the chatter issues they had, were they really worth all the bitching & moaning?

Kind of the point of MM being a breath of fresh air...I think anyway.

In CS & DP deffence however, they came from 125 & 250 where chatter was not a real issue. MM has come from Moto2 where it is. So to be fair, it is what the riders are used to that sparks their comments when something changes and is different.

So for MM, chatter in MotoGP is little compared to Moto2 where by CS & DP, chatter in MotoGP is a lot compared to not only 125 & 250, but recent MotoGP also.

So, regardless of the issue and the cause of the issue, the reality stays the same....CS moans a lot when both in or out of his comfort zone.

Chatter needs to be put into context.

If you're experienceing chatter that's hurting your corner speed and tyre life but can still win races then it's something that needs working on.

If you're experiencing chatter that's severely limiting your corner speed and eating your tyres while the Yamaha in front of you is planted rock solid (on the same tyres) and pulling away lap after lap then you've got a BIG chatter problem....
