WSBK » Bimota confirms WSBK exit


..traction control doesn't really make the bikes faster......it makes tires last longer...so that consistent laps are better toward the end of races. In fact..nothing about traction control provides any power...in fact it reduces power to prevent wheel spin.... Added traction then results in quicker lap times but usually in later laps... Many riders have turned off their traction control during qualifying for faster lap times but struggle if they do it in a race distance... If I am not mistaken..2006 or 2007 WSBK Angel Nieto, did that to his Suzuki in Qatar as he felt the traction control was slowing him down...he finished on the podium that year on the Alstare Suzuki,,,

MotoGP » Marquez: Honda ‘good step’ for Crutchlow


cossiegaz: Cal probably told Honda he rides a bit like Marquez so will do well on the Honda. I predict more poor results and more excuses from Cal next year.
Even you do not believe the crap you wrote.... If by results you mean frequent wins etc. then you are correct his results will be poor but if he finishes next year in the top six overall and 5th or 6th on Sundays fairly frequently I believe it would be job done for him and LCR!!!! Really...if he is top satellite and battling for top satellite...it will be job done...I say that because no one can predict what Ducati will bring next year and Dovi already has 2 podiums this year....AHEAD of Honda and Yamaha factory....plus they will still have Open concessions

MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


Talent fan... Good point but the ever changing variables (temp, track moisture, and atmospheric moisture/humidity) make every motorcycle of different makes, set up differently at different tracks because those variables coupled with varying riding style and rider requirements make set up extremely difficult and different week in and out. Should these variables be constant week In and out then I would agree with you. The rider never changes so that could be a static but his requirements at varying temps and grip levels change constantly..... The tyre as you say are key regardless of what make... The top riders/ team are able to master the conditions (whether due to finances or experience) ...MM struggled because on that occasion he missed it....every team does at one point or another...the best teams do it less often...simple to me...

MotoGP » No British MotoGP ride for Colin Edwards?


66 years and counting.....I am sure it will survive in some shape and form...whether we like it a certain way or not....this is not the first financial drought/crisis in the life of racing motorbikes.... We may not like what has or will happen while others will and we will continue to argue about it long after Rossi is gone and possibly MM.... but it is fun to read the opinions...some laughable, some insightful, some neither here nor there....

MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


The argument will never stop...every one argues about the Honda being the best bike...put Lorenzo on a Honda and he would show Marquez the way around....this was the same idea for having a control tire to make the racing more equal...still no one is happy...so why do we argue about who is the best when the only comparison is them on the same bike with no distinct mechanical advantage....but if the grid is all Honda..we argue..if it is all Yamaha, we argue... If it is competitive tyres e.g. Pre-2008, we argue about special tyres...if it is control tyres we argue about tyre suiting only one make...I am a little tired of going in circles...what the hell do you all want? Control tyres were deemed as the saviour of WSBK a few years back..all the riders in GP jumped at the better bridgestones over Michelins....some couldn't because of contracts etc.... The racing got better but as independent teams struggled for money factories rose to the top...well actually they never left...which indepen

I mean we could argue conspiracy of Yamaha domination in 2008 - 2010.. If Honda wrote that story then their idea of control and domination is a little twisted or the greatest reverse psychology ever known to man.....and make Honda domination even more great and convincing they gave Yamaha another title in 2012 just to show that they control!!!! They must have paid Casey a few billions to lose that one and retire for the second coming and in turn making Marquez seem like more of a savior than the Christ himself!!! Talent fan...much respect to your opinion as well as Prof X....but I just cannot see it....if anything the factories will always rule because of money and nothing else...PS...even if you give the entire grid factory bikes with the current updates as factory..they would still come out on top...why? Because they have the money for the greatest engineers I he world and ore computers etc...so they would still have the upper hand...however the show would be more fun...at least...

"I think your 'top 4' battle might just be decided by tyres." Well, if it is not the tyres then it is the bike correct? So who does not believe the Honda is a little better this year?.... So whether the tyres dictate the outcome or the bike...it seems to me that Honda has the edge regardless and the outcome would be almost no different especially with Marc at the wheel.... Both these top manufacturers..Yamaha and Honda have been on these tyres since 2008 so I just cannot find the excuse to suggest any conspiracy...PS. Yamaha has 4 world titles to its name compared to Honda who only has 2 in the same period (2008 - 2013).. So TBH you will have a difficult time convincing me of the conspiracy that Honda rules the world of motorcycle racing...
