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...

MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps

Codger.. I was being sarcastic...I think the mad reference was that you are not allowed to make sense on silly things like facts!! lol I agree with you wholly!! My response to the post on Dovi was not to bash him but to show how people are one-eyed when they are against Rossi! Dovi praised for his results on Ducati but Rossi disrespected for the same comparable results minus the Qualifying that is usually done with the softer tyre anyway and Rossi had no OPEN concession and did these results in his first and second year...whereas Dovi is in his 2nd year and has these concessions with no podiums last year!!! Great Job Dovi...just lets be fair to what Rossi did on that pig Duc regardless of what he had said... Rossi failed his own goal but behind Casey (2007 and beyond) Rossi had the second most success on that beast!! (not close to Casey) but above all the others... I think we can all agree that Ducati's development is SLOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWW!! GiGi seems to be speeding t

MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps

Codger: Certain posters find it very difficult to find any positives with Rossi's performances. Here is some help. Rossi set a lap time on lap 2 that Marc couldn't better for 13 laps...... and Jorge never did match it. So no, Rossi is not slower now because of his advancing years. It is obvious from the lap by lap times that Rossi had cooked his tyres by lap 7, he dropped half a second a lap. So no, Rossi unable to fight for the whole race is not down to his age, or being over cautious. Jorge started from 3rd and finished 2nd. Rossi started from 6th and finished 3rd.
Now easy Codger...bringing facts on this site!! are u mad man??

MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps

Codger: Rossi thread but what a ride from Dovi !!
I like Dovi as well, and what a ride...Ducati improving....BUT....for all those "bigging up" Dovi while talking trash about what Rossi did on the Ducati.......Dovi is finally achieving (in his 3rd year) what Rossi did in the first year on the ducati...which is finishing consistently 5-8...and a couple podiums!! and we must also consider that he is achieving with concessions particularly in qualifying!! PS I know he used MED tyres in race like other factories but he does have the fuel concessions right??? AGAIN I like Dovi...but we praise him for these results (after 3 years) but bash Rossi for similar on the probably because Dovi stayed quiet about it and Rossi did talk out of turn before he jumped on!! just a note...

MotoGP » Business as usual for Marquez at Silverstone

No real story here except for the excess struggle of the other members of the four horsemen. Marquez just gets on with it...I have a feeling that he also rides around a lot of problems although Brno result..(4th ain't bad but for MM is uncharacteristic...) suggest otherwise. We saw him visibly struggle but as he said Brno sweeping characteristics may not have suited his on the edge somewhat ragged albeit impressive style... Coupled with a set up that didn't quite suit what he needed... Then again he was top in FP and the test afterwards but we still did not get a race distance feedback since he was never deemed as slow in Brno....only struggled in the race.....

WSBK » Bimota confirms WSBK exit

..traction control doesn't really make the bikes makes tires last that consistent laps are better toward the end of races. In fact..nothing about traction control provides any 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,,,
