I credit Sykes for his time and position on kit and electronics not so far off what the MotoGP boys have. While WSBK have GPS MotoGP have enough data to set the bikes up on Time so they've for a work-around and the end result for set up and adj on the fly is the same.

The question ALL this tech brings up is the point. How does anyone really know who is best? In MotoGP JL might be champ but with electronics and his tech advantages we cannot KNOW the best guy won.

Espagaro or Sykes for that matter might MIGHT be the best rider and the one who deserves to win. The tech tho is taking over and marginalising the input of be rider and also the tech gap is making competition and fair comparison impossible.

That HAS to mean its NOT real Racing and therefore bogus.
