MotoGP » Laverty testing geometry a day after 'best result yet’

@IE22... I suspect teams that use anything but the ohlins are either: 1- looking to be catered to, by being the only team on Showa. If your a smaller team running ohlins, perhaps your not getting the attention you need because the big teams are catered to. 2- perhaps there is some sort of funding/sponsorship monies that help them make their budget goals. It cost alot to run a team and if you can get decent gear and say a couple hundred thousand euro per year...... you cant argue hat making the show on inferior equip is not better than being a spectatotor.

MotoGP » Lorenzo, Marquez respond to Qatar boos

Garbodp: Here's the thing... You can't have your cake and eat it too. If your going to antagonize and further animosities by "zipping" Someone's mouth, why than be surprised tht people react? Can't play innocent, and make antagonistic gestures at the same time.
Let's be real here. Lorenzo is already in a lose-lose situation. Always has. A lot of Rossi's fans will boo him regardless. Whether he's trying to be humble or when he does his 'zipping mouth' gesture. When Jorge says that alot of fans have no respect, they rebutt by saying you have to earn it. So this begs the question, what other methods or ways can Jorge earn the respect?
@ juggernaut... I'm not saying he deserves it, or that it's okay. All I'm saying is that It's going to happen if he antagonizes other people. Maybe I'm antiquated, but I've always told my kids to be their best and be above any nonsense.... Put it this way... Let your talking be on track T

MotoGP » Kenny Roberts Jr confirms Espargaro comments

GlazingVegas: An American Racer we can all be proud of! Kenny Roberts. Contributed a lot to our wonderful sport.
Glazing Vegas- KRjr was a great rider. He won a WC and even had some pretty spirited rides on the Patronas KR bike his dad was developing. But to claim he "has contributed a lot to our wonderful sport" seems a bit of a stretch. I think you are confusing him with his father Kenny Roberts senior...King Kenny

MotoGP » Suter quits Moto2

ProfX... Your preaching to the choir about 2 stroke 250. I raced a TZ with Castrol a747 oil in the US AMA. Still go on youtube every now and than just to hear some 250s. If I close my eyes and turn up the volume, I can almost smell Heaven! I'm just saying 1/2 the motogp and 2x the moto3 Would make for plenty of engineering test bench.

MotoGP » 500cc Suter enters Isle of Man TT!

@mr long... The funny thing is I think I saw a honda patent for a water injection system that made 2 stroke nearly 90% cleaner. It was like a catalytic converter of sorts. There was an a collection box with water misters that sprayed the exhaust gases as they left. The resultant debris would settle into a collector box that would have to be emptied out... And somehow that got squashed.

MotoGP » Suter quits Moto2

Prof X, I disagree. Lets not have a multi tiered middle weight class. It was a mess when we had that in Motogp. Open / factory/ factory with concessions... Traditionally the world championships were 125/250/500... The fact that we went to four stroke should not have changed that. They started playing too much with the system. 800cc 600cc . These are not production bikes. IMO I want to see really exotic unobtanium bikes with the best riders. I know the idea is to limit cost.. Than do so by single bike rule in lower classes and limited electronics. There already are several national and even World Series that use production based bikes in multi tiered system... Let those be what they are. Besides the obvious engineering application for the 250/500/1000, I think manufactures would benefit because in many parts of the world smaller displacement bikes drive their sales. In lots of countries with tiered licensing, people don't buy 600 and 1000 cc... Look at all the 750cc... They are gone. J
