@ Lad - Have you ever ridden a motorcycle on track?
Its not JUST about the top speed. Its very much about HOW FAST you GET to the top speed.
Its hard to pass the Honda's as they have the best drive out of a turn, and get to their top speed faster and sooner along the straight. So - they pull away from the T3, and are maintaining their top speed for longer before they have to brake. Rossi's factory bike as well.
That equals covering ground faster through machinery performance. Rossi rode it well for sure, but..
If someone doesn't understand the fundamentals, then banging on & slagging CC (and flying in the face of what real experts like Neil Spalding & others say) is just going to make you look daft.
