MotoGP » Top Yamaha Smith on the boil at Brno


He has speed! Like most I still do not believe he should have had the ride in the first place as his resume did not justify it......but end of last year and parts of this year I could see he has the speed. I was not at all upset that he got a new contract as I believe he will have a good third year. Cal did the same thing...in his third year is where he shone...but his second year showed flashes of speed....just like Smith...I believe he will have his hands full with Pol next year.. somehow, someway he needs to develop consistency for the race....lets see...good luck!! good performance in quay!!

MotoGP » Top Yamaha Smith on the boil at Brno


scenic: He'll go backwards
So will everyone who is not on a factory bike....lol...what is your point? At least he earned his position without towing or assistance.. PS I have no problem with towing...this is not something new and every rider on the grid has done it!!! The difference now is that the top 4 have no one faster to do it to!!! If they try to do it to each other...as MM says...they will close the throttle....

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks finger injury


@ LLARRY and Rossi competed for 14 years before missing his first race.. injuries and all...while earning 9 world titles....as much as I respect BS38 but you are really going to come on here and compare BS38 finger injuries and what he has had to go through in how many years of international comp??...are you really that much against Rossi?

MotoGP » Marquez expecting ‘strong’ Yamaha challenge


Hey all, Do not get me wrong...the Honda is the weapon of choice and a slightly better machine at this moment than the Yamaha. The margin SEEMS larger because of MM...as GUNA or Brain stated Dani would be leading the championship but Rossi would have more wins and the stats would be more comparable. Let us not get crazy though with conspiracies because if my mind serves me right between 2004 - 2012 Yamaha was the bike to have barring the odd 2006 and 2007 wonder years for Honda and Ducati!!! The last few years Honda just got serious and made a better machine...Hell 2013 is questionable because Lorenzo was certainly able to slow the field down in Valencia and then took off into the distance when ready "talk about control" MM was really good last year but Honda was not really better than Yamaha. In fact we can debate all day long that IF Lorenzo was not injured we would be looking at a different writing in the record book....that is IF and but...anyway Go Rossi lets bring the fight to Ma

MotoGP » Marquez expecting ‘strong’ Yamaha challenge


Also with that said Rossi just did not get along as well with the Yamaha last year!! so it certainly seemed that the difference was only Lorenzo. The truth is the Yamaha was a decent machine last year and very comparable to the Honda. Lorenzo was the only one capable of exploiting the best and win on it... we saw that Cal Crutchlow was able to do excellent on it as well.. the same Crutchlow that said he mimicked Lorenzo's riding style to be able to extract the best out of the package!! Rossi did not do this and struggled last year! so with one Yamaha at the front many kept saying its all up to Lorenzo (which it was) on an inferior machine!! This IMO was not a true statement. It was all up to Lorenzo because no one else could ride the Yamaha with the same precision! The Yamaha and Honda are not worlds apart in performance but in a world where thousandths of a second makes a difference Honda has more millions to find that little difference that helps MM do what he does!! where nobody els

Brain:
Sete: Dani would be leading the championship if Marc wasn't there!
Yep, we would have a 4 point diffetrence and Rossi would have 4 wins, Dani 3 wins and Jorge 2 wins. When you take one guy out of the equation, everything looks pretty damn close.
Well said! Sorry all but MM is making the difference. I would be more inclined to agree with everyone that the Honda is just 1000% better if 1. MM won every race by 6-10 secs each time 2. Dani was second in every race. When Rossi dominated on the honda...we saw that as other riders got the same machine they were able to win too although not really beat Rossi to a title! or in general! So MM is the difference to me because we all know Dani is capable of winning races (although questionable for titles).

BSB » Unstoppable Kiyonari clinches victory from row four


IvorBueb: Kiyo needs to be happy with his bike. For whatever reason he wasn't getting on with the Honda, but he seems to love the Beemer. In the interview the other day Kiyo said he thinks the Beemer is the best bike, better even than the Kawasaki.
Not sure why we keep saying "for whatever reason"....I know Lowes did well on the Honda but besides him and Rea ...who else? Truthfully his title in 2010 was not his most convincing or popular.... The Honda is a dog at this moment... With many teams switching to the Kawasaki....Kiyo never lost his talent....he was let down by a motorcycle he and many others could no longer win on...same in WSBK...

BSB » Unstoppable Kiyonari clinches victory from row four


JimmyTheRealOne: Kiyo is a strange character. Unbeatable on his day, yet sometimes very average. I remember the same from him in WSBK.
Well there is some blame for his inconsistent result to be poured on the Honda to which he was so dedicated....after James Toseland that Honda has become the Ducati of production racing....For all the success Johnny Rea has had...he is the model of inconsistency but the Honda is to blame for that...unbeatable on his day yet sometimes average.....sounds like the same story huh?
