Again, this discussion is not, nor should not be viewed as a Cal bashing session. He rode a good race and did what he could. It’s the ridiculous assertion that a Factory M1 would have made the difference that spawned this debate. Cal’s bike is fast (obviously) and just as capable as a current Factory bike. The issues with his bike apply to all of the M1’s (I suppose you missed Rossi’s bike dealing with the wheelie issue when the race started). The problem for Cal is him more than anything else. I hate to continue to bring Dovi up in this, but that is proof in the pudding using a rider that is more or less the same caliber as Crutchlow, just better on the brakes, better at protecting his lines and more consistent.
