MotoGP » Rossi ‘improves a lot’ during Jerez test

Goes to show how important and at the same time convoluted bike setting is. So many factors and variables, most of them able to completely change the character of the bike by themselves. Tony Foale, in his iconic book "Motorcycle Handling and Chassi design", (by far the best read about motorycle handling and chassis I have ever laid my hands on), states that "not all dynamics about motorcycle handling and behaviour have been understood yet". The obvious implication of this impressive statement is that the whole "setting" business is not just science, it is also art. The technical aspect of chassis design and handling poses great interest to me and it's such a shame that so little information ever leaks out.

MotoGP » MotoGP Le Mans - Race Results

Iannone... gotta hand it to him. Fought bravely, impressively and insistently before he was forced to give in. He and Marquez also saved the race from being a borefest. I can't but feel impressed by Rossi - so many problems with pace throughout the weekend, yet he was up there, once again. And, once again, he taught a clear lesson to people who think that race results can be determined by free practice and qualifying. Marquez on pole and no podium. Rossi from 3rd row and finishing 2nd. How can this be explained according to their simplistic logic? Some people on this forum have been made to look like complete fools, again and again and they don't seem to learn. Spare the proclamations, irony and hatred people, more often than not it comes back to you.

bikelover: Can somebody explain to me,What is so impressive about this improvement?I know he improves,but not a lot compare to Jorge in terms of pace.I can't get it.Thanks.
The impressive thing is that Rossi surmounted about 0.4 secs/lap time deficit compared to Lorenzo just with a setting solution. 0.4 secs of pace difference on that level of racing is quite a lot.

MotoGP » Moto3: New Dunlops ‘make tyre choice difficult’

Difficult choices in any competitive setting make things more interesting and I don't mind at all the deliberate, "engineered" if you will, difficulty in the choice. For one thing, it makes the race strategy worth thinking about, both for the teams and the spectators and it also allows for a greater chance for the teams to get it wrong and hence for more varied and interesting podium results. Apparently, and much to my pleasure, Bridgestone have achieved that too.

I think might be his age, most haters say he's old & washed up but he prove them wrong all the time. But in reality its not a big thing, he usually improve when he need to. U must be a hater
Give the man some slack his question is obviously literal and not sarcastic. Let us not forget that there are also normal people around, not just hooligans ready to launch hate in abundance.
