re: "This is so wrong. 'We have to develop the bike to the Michelin'."

ps, that's what Suzuki said...!!! lol

re: "Michelin is taking over the exclusive MotoGP tyre supply from Bridgestone in 2016 and is also changing wheel size from 16.5 to 17 inch."

now don't be surprised if there's a press release from Hamamatsu saying they are going to "dangle the carrot" for another year. even though i already predicted this, i almost don't blame them. in fact, i WON'T blame them...

they've gotta be so mad they could SPIT.

see, this makes the 3rd major upheaval since they cancelled Christmas. they already knew Ezpelata had no love, but only now do we see more clearly the wisdom of my words for them to focus on WSBK and NOT go chasing glory in MotoGP.

1st was the debut of the seamless box, 2nd was the multi-layered OC debacle, 3rd is simultaneous change of both brand AND rim size. this is a friggin' TRAIN WRECK.
