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

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 » Rossi: Great shame for MotoGP to lose Nicky


I will start watching WSBK next year... I'm still confused about the timing. It seems "on paper" that 2016 can feasibly level the field... At least until the electronics and tires are figured out by the factories... Seems like staying in Gp and showing a couple of flashes of brilliance could extend his career further than riding a super old honda and hoping they bring something better to the party for 2017... Of course Nicky and his management probably have a much clearer picture of what Honda has in store and what prospects MOTOGP would have provided... GOOD LUCK Kentucky Kid!

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden made a MotoGP Legend


Not sure what all the nay Sayers use as a definition of "legend," but here goes: 1-a traditional story sometimes popularly regarded as historical but unauthenticated. 2-an extremely famous or notorious person, especially in a particular field. NH is extremely famous and/or notorious ( note worthy- he won a WC) in his field. If multiple MotoGp WC ( I think someone said 3-4) is the criteria, than many of the people on the "Legends" list would not be there. He has represented his teams/ his country/ and his sport with the utmost professionalism.... Period! Good luck NH69... Hope you get a decent bike in 2017 and lift the WSBK Crown to add to the collection!

MotoGP » Rossi champion if, Lorenzo champion if…


mrfill:
Benji: I hope Lorenzo is running in 3rd and Rossi 4th on the last lap, then .....Marquez "makes a mistake", runs wide and Lorenzo slips through" !!
If Lorenzo finishes 3rd & Rossi 4th, Rossi is champion If Lorenzo finishes 2nd & Rossi 3rd, Rossi is champion. Whether Marquez makes a mistake or not, the result is the same. Was the helpful table a little complicated for you?[\blockquote @mrfill, I think you misunderstood Benji... Benji November 02, 2015 9:27 PM I hope Lorenzo is running in 3rd and Rossi 4th on the last lap, then .....Marquez "makes a mistake", runs wide and Lorenzo slips through" !! If Lorenzo slips through he would be 2nd and Rossi 4th which would give Lorenzo the WC... Funny how sarcastic your comment about Benji not understanding the table.

MotoGP » Front-end problems a concern for Redding


Blazin, Hmmm. The physics that springs immediately to mind is that "light travels in a straight line". So, the light which I can shed on TrueFan's comment is that when TrueFan visits the Doctor, the Doctor shines a light in his ear & the light comes out of his other ear, uninterrupted. Sorry, don't mean to get involved in the tussle, But you gotta admit... that was clever and entertaining...

MotoGP » Rossi: Title 100% open, Lorenzo injury unclear


Rain seems like the answer to Vale's needs.... But I'm actually not convinced. IF JL is more seriously hurt than he yet knows, rain might actually help him . The diminished pace and less aggressive riding in the wet might help soften the demands on his injury. Yes, everyone will say that Rossi is a rain master and JL never does well in the wet, but.... If his shoulder is bad, the pounding he will get in the dry might weaken his efforts at successive rounds.... Having said that, I hope all the guys are safe and injury free. It's gonna be a a "barn burner!" Go Vale!
