MotoGP » Redding reacts to Gresini Aprilia deal

Nothing wrong with ambition. Scott got a deal to land a Honda, I am sure he would have taken a Yamaha but that seat was sewn up by his competitor and Moto2 he is in the Honda camp, he has decided to pursue the best machine to showcase his best skills and he has to believe he can do it or why bother!!! The conspiracy doesn't matter because if he wants to race he needs to be included in the plot!!! IF he wants to win he has to have a Honda since he already invested this year with Honda, he is simply sticking with it....if Smith were to quit...I guarantee that he would take that seat without hesitation!! Point is the boy had a plan! with the shake up, the plan isn't coming together as expected, so he has to regroup and evaluate the options now facing him!! I bet he is also considering that MVDS first year in MotoGP is another learning year that may not produce the results he expects!! due to team/technician inexperience with MotoGP machinery!!

WSBK » Giugliano: Always a risk riding at 150%

reinmacre: @Joeski The only problem with your logic is NH69 is a former MotoGP champion and his resume speaks for itself. You really can't group a world champion in with a bunch guys that aren't, well, world champion.
I do was rude of me...but consistency won Nicky that title....a well deserved title and one of my favorite riders...exactly why I used the comparison...Nicky is NOT(for all the respect I have for him) considered a race winning rider!!!! 3 wins in 10 years...and a Motogp title is great but not a race winning resume....note: I was comparing capabilities not the riders general it is easier to make a fast rider crash less (Casey Stoner) than a slow rider who does not crash fast...particularly at this stage of their career....

MotoGP » Aprilia confirms Gresini for MotoGP return

"However if they think that participation in Motogp will help them advance their bike's technology that will eventually end up in their production bikes I guess I could understand that reasoning." This sounds like a solid statement but I never understood how Honda has the best machine in MotoGP but cannot make their production bike perform in a "sub-series" and Yamaha is also a top team/bike in MotoGP but has no representation in WSBK even in the form of a satellite team!! I am not sure WSBK has anything more to do with "Race on Sunday, sell on Monday"...for whatever reason MotoGP has been the choice of investment for the top manufacturers...Kawasaki pushed WSBK and have done well...even in BSB now it seems for the production format Kawasaki is the bike of choice but look how many manufacturers are aiming at the big show!! Us motorcycle racing fans are a minority and although we are the avid watchers, the buyers might be a different market....for the brand, not just the sportbike...

WSBK » Giugliano: Always a risk riding at 150%

No doubt he is fast and many teams would pay big bucks for a fast rider....slow smooth riders don't win....look at Haslam..good in his day but never fast and rarely wins...Nicky Hayden is the same...guintoli too....these are not winning riders although all really good... The trick is to get Guigliano a mentor who can calm him down and translate his speed into longevity and wins.....

BSB » PBM ‘second team’ to run BMW or Ducati?

Tissue All valid points...the engine is most likely a SBK spec tuned with some additional performance parts or development as was envisioned with the CRT class. I am uncertain as to the major difference between the ART and the were many teams in the paddock. With that said..I believe the riders and team have a comprehension of the engines character which is arguable a SBK spec engine. Enough so that they developed and raced a frame around it....point is, the team have experience and a relationship with Aprilia that might be worth pursuing.. That PBM bike may be worth 15th thru 20th on a MGP grid put that on a BSB grid, I believe it would translate to something more substantial. Of course I realize the tyres are different...really? But the the Aprilia is a WSBK front reason with a supported factory effort they couldn't win at BSB...

BSB » Nothing less than wins for Kiyonari

I want Kiyo to take the title...just because I love an underdog story...last few years most people wrote him off....hell he didn't even have a ride in 2012.. Who would have thought that he could come back from that to be challenging for the title.... Most times in those situations it is difficult just to get a ride to make a comeback...look at Haga....I believe he is still good enough to take a title in BSB...but with him out of racing for 2 years now..who will take the chance... I would but I do not have the money to make that happen...
