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 » Rossi ‘improves a lot’ during Jerez test

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.

MotoGP » Honda rule out Stoner comeback in 2015

999666GP15: It's clear Honda doesn't want Stoner to disturb MM's championship run clearly Stoner wouldn't win races straight away but it's possible he could take points away from MM later on and a possible clash of titans isn't what Honda wants. What a shame!
Exactly... and not only this but it also proves that they only have little true faith in Pedrosa. It's clear that they see him as the perfect No2 man: Not a real threat to the frontrunner Marquez but good enough to pretend to be a contender, occasioanally fiddle with opposition and grab points from them and even if he fails that, at least not be a disgrace to the factory. Honda... the ever clever fox they are... how I dsepise their empire-type thinking and conduct - Crutchlow spoke of the orchestrated team-order thing just in the last race. All this made me remember once again why I consider Rossi's slap to leave them and make their rivals world champions as a class act of the highest order, and then s

MotoGP » Rossi on brink of record 200th podium

About Stoner: It's not black and white people. A multitude of factors contribute to a certain outcome. What Stoner did and was special, was the fact that apart from 2007 when he had an undisputable tyre advantage, throughout 2008-2010 he managed to keep the Ducati and himself in the spotlight, and occasionally -if not frequently- win races with it. Nobody else managed that with that obvious pig of a bike. Everybody else didn't manage good results and got disheartened by it, including Rossi who on an MCN interview admitted: "I don't know how Stoner did it". Even Nakamoto, HRC boss, confessed, after Stoner's departure, that Marquez is extremely talented but not a genius like Stoner. Of course this doesn't mean that I am a fan of his or that I have any particular liking - to be honest I dislike his personality and I was kind of glad when he left because I was tired of all the bullspit his fans used to launch.
