@LCTanner - The weight advantage only really helps them get off the line. Getting the power down early and smoothly out of the corners means more after that. That's much more complex than a mere weight advantage. Plus, being bigger, Rossi has a strength and stamina advantage for late in the race, so on that basis, he should really dominate. He's on the championship winning bike now. Yamaha has the best electronics package. Honda has a better gear shifter. Honda has a bit more power, but still has some chatter problems. Yamaha handles better, and is easier on the Bridgestones. Overall they're not far apart now.
