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

MotoGP » Marquez expecting ‘strong’ Yamaha challenge


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?

MotoGP » Rossi pondering tyre dilemma after free practice at Indy


Unfortunately this is more normal for Rossi recently.....race pace is usually good but he has to find a way to do better in FP to set himself up better for qualifying..... The only reason I care about his early pace is because he ends up having too much to do in the race and although he always comes back to 2nd or 3rd he spends up so much of everything getting there he never has that little extra to hold MM or really threaten him....Then that always lead to the "what if" arguments/conversations. Anyway hope he has a great race.....someone needs to box up MM,, at least once this year.....

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi leads first session at 'new' Indy


EdOz: It's good to be 1st in FP1 but in all seriousness it means NOTHING on a regular weekend and it means even less on this one... 'new' circuit and new surface. Riders and teams will be all using FP1 and FP2 to find the best setting... sure, all the riders want to get P1 but in this case I think it's more of a case of Rossi either finding a good setting early or just being so experienced that.........!
TBH Rossi usually struggles at new tracks and although this is not new per say...what is more indicative is the fact that it seems the Hondas are struggling,,,Pedrosa in 16!!!!!!!! WTF... Bautista and Bradl in the teens as well....and MM shuffled to 5th....this is not normal...was it damp? Did I miss something? Point is normally I wouldn't read too much into this BUT something is different....about this early result...

MotoGP » Rossi: Tracks that are difficult for me


You all just read into stuff way too much..... He does not like the upcoming tracks as much, so he tends to struggle more for whatever the reason...mental block...just hates them but is being nice... What it does not mean is that he is not capable of doing well just that he finds it more difficult to showcase his best for whatever reason...ani-clockwise vs clockwise circuit. He is performing better this year and the bike is also better...no chance of podium last year but this year will be better (minus a crash)...not saying he will win just saying if he wins....its because he is in a better position than last year!!

MotoGP » Miller to join Crutchlow at LCR?


Honda might be trying to not pull a Stoner mistake.....they had him on LCR but let him slip to Ducati. Truthfully when I think of stoner....I think of his time at Ducati...not Honda, although he won a title there! With MM, I am not sure why this would be an issue but Honda may just be looking way ahead. Unfortunately MM proved that u do not need 2 or 3 years on a MotoGP bike to win and that may well be true for Miller although highly unlikely with much less experience. MM had 2 years in Moto2 to hone his skills....so I do not quite see miller jumping up to GP and doing much....at least for 2 more years...2017 maybe...if they keep him around...
