BSB » Kiyonari accepts blame for disastrous BSB season opener


Did 1:30s in practice consistently and could barely make 1:33s in race...definitely had issues...very disappointing weekend for Kiyo...I am sure he feels it worst than me... it was not the bike's fault but the bike was not set up for the hotter temps hence the reduced feeling... Anyway...hopefully he got his crash of the season out of the way and step it up next round...still pulling for him to do dwell....

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Maybe we have a chance to fight


The more people bash Lorenzo, the more I am starting to feel like pulling for him.... I am a Rossi fan but I have mad respect for JL... It was hard to argue for Dani P because he has had that Honda ride for 9 years without a title to show but Lorenzo is obviously not in the same boat... And IMO he was the fastest and should have been the champ in 2013... Although I am also a MM fan (waiting for Rossi to retire before I fully get on the wagon) I have to say he was fortunate that JL was injured in 2013 which gave opportunity to "make hay while the sun shines" and he did it and took the title...JL is no slouch and I would be careful how much money you put against him... You could lose it all....Go Vale!! Go Lorenzo

MotoGP » Rossi sets rostrum target in Texas


LordBongington: Can't see him winning this one, but happy to be proved wrong. Marquez, Iannone, Dovi.
VRs history here does not support a possible win...he was 2nd 2 years in a row at Qatar so few doubted he could do it.... He is faster in general, it seems and the gap is not as wide to the Hondas...but Ducati is better and Dovi podiumed last year...Lorenzo is not a slouch here either...and Crazy Joe has proven what he can do on a good bike in the first showing... I guess I agree with you but I have also learnt never to write Rossi off.. Dangerous thing that underestimation of the age old Vale...

MotoGP » Rossi sets rostrum target in Texas


Reasonable goal in light of past performances and issues. He has not had a chance at this track to evaluate his real strength yet. Last year he had tyre issues but looked pretty good up til then... Anyway we all know that if he can he will go or it. However logically and realistically Rossi and most sensible fans also realize the mountain that is MM at this particular track...I am a Rossi fan but for sure if I was a betting man, my money would be on MM. Dovi was on the podium last year and he no has better weapon at his disposal with concessions... If he is within a couple seconds of MM at the end and on the podium..Rossi and fans have every reason to be optimistic about a 10th title possibility this year.. Go Rossi! Go Lorenzo! Go Dovi! and Go MM!!...Iannone could be the shocker this year!!!

WSBK » Leader Rea refusing to 'get carried away'


Happy for Rea..he is checking all the blocks as we already knew he had the talent but nothing is a foregone conclusion until it is physically done. May people have already crowned him..I am not saying he can't but give him a chance to actually do it...because if Tom or Haslam find that missing ingredient...it could all change... last year...I swore Tom had it in the bag but we saw Guintoli step it up and Tom trailed off....costing him the title. Rea and Tom get along...what is with this fan created crazy hate rivalry....reading this forum you would swear they are bitter rivals...lol.

MotoGP » Dovizioso 'can't wait' to put GP15 to test again


The Ducati's were faster on Top speed than Marquez. However, I am not sure where on the track the put the trap speed equipment and quite possible MM was the fastest at that particular point. MotoGP.com stated that MM hit 350.3 Kph..i believe...but on Dovi's bike while battling with Rossi, I saw 354 kph...someone on here said they saw 355 kph so I do not know...it is possible the trap speed is the only calibrated equipment while the onboard stuff is just tied to the bikes speedometer which is not required to be calibrated (well not sure if that is true for MotoGP but in general that is the case)... For all we know the trap speed may be at or just after the finish line as opposed to at the end of the straight...

MotoGP » Marquez: I want to put Qatar behind us


Guna4699: Marc doesn't care about batting to the line if he needs to, so he will never be worried about number of bikes fighting for win unless he makes his own mistake like in Qatar which he will try not to repeat. Another thing is I don't think Ducati will podium here, they'll have pace but sadly won't have the hardest option tyre which other two factories will have. Because this track is very demanding on tyres and hard will be the option most probably for Yamaha and Honda... Mostly likely a Honda win with Yamaha double podium...
Not so sure about that. Ducati podiumed on the medium tyre last year. Although I believed Vale would have been on podium last year but ran into tyre issues. Also GP15 is newer and better bike on the tyres and more adjustable plus it seems this weekend in COTA will see lower temperatures with possible threat of rain.....high of 80F for Sunday! with some thunderstorms.

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?


"He still would get better results than the rider they got anyways. So the argument doesn't hold water to me." The results would not be compared to Aoyama's result. Casey would be expected to perform at a very high level...where Aoyoma would get Kudos for finishing top 10...Casey would be crucified for finishing outside top 5... a very real possibility considering he does not even know the track nor has had much time on the bike. Casey would want to do it for fun and to see where he is at after so long away...he would be ok with top 7 but would want more...problem is the fans would not let him live down any position worst than 5th...and some would slate him for that. This is why Suppo said they talked and decided against it. PS. MM would have zero concern about Stoner...particularly at COTA where MM seem to have a certain love affair with this track!

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?


vlady: So, why suppo thinks that aoyama will do better?? Stoner can practice on playstation or other virtual machine.. Copy ME's settings.. Or something..
He does not think that....jeeezz! Honda and Aoyoma will look great if he finishes in the top 10....Honda and Casey will be slammed and slated if Casey finishes 6th or 7th...better than Aoyoma but not better than his own reputation!!!! "Cons outweigh the Pros" because he would not perform up to expectation due to lack of track time, fitness and new bike....5th or lower would not have been enough for Stoner....and the fans would not let Honda or Casey forget it!! it already started with fans talking about MM is worried about Stoner (talk about expectation and reputation)....and he is not even riding in the race!! Could you imagine if he ended up 10th in the race? They would burn him at the stake! So Suppo and Stoner said "ok not a good idea"
