Q: "Oh man, no one is excited about this? A: nope. re: "Extreme pessimism is yawn-inspiring" ignorance is bliss... and ultimately traceable to being "root cause" of failure in all human endeavour. (s1 genius theorem #889) optimism doesn't land men on the moon, fly Concordes at Mach 2, or construct Burj Khalifas. only those who've conditioned themselves to embrace REALITY (especially it's horrors) are able to accomplish these great feats. (s1 genius theorem #704)

re: "Running an unloaded engine is not the same thing as running in a bike with a rider attached." correct, that's why you LOAD the friggin' thing with either eddy current or a water brake. stay with me here people. re: "The reason I say they are likely to have reliability issues is because of what I have seen" now the reason I KNEW they were going to have reliability issues is because of what I have seen going back to the turn of the Century.

MotoGP » What we learned in 2014


re: "they are not on the same bike so it may not apply" correct, it does not apply. put in deliberately "unscientific" terms, the Honda is "long and thin", while the Yamaha is "short and fat". Marc's on a V4, Ross is on an I4. different Cg's and wheelbases dictate different lean angles for a given corner speed. the Honda enters the turn faster and leans more thru a turn, not because it "likes to" because it HAS TO. but he (Marcus) isn't necessarily going faster, the histrionics just make it LOOK like he's going faster. whereas when Jay on the Yamaha enters that same turn he can achieve that same speed while eating an ice-cream cone. as the higher Cg demands less lean, less effort and input is required. now to get the best from the Honda you DO have to ride it different (see Stoner, see Marcus). in Physics terms the phenomena is known as the Law of Conservation of Momentum. which is almost as powerful as s1's Law of NATCORK. :)

re: "Basically he needs his elbow down on a consistent basis." aw man, you just asked for Ross to crash more, that's not right. re: "JL tucks his left hand on the inside of his leg and never touches that elbow but he is known for lean angle and corner speed...I believe it is only cool looking and does not affect the pace at all" joemagic, you should trade in your logic for a pair of "joeskis" as shown above. re: "happens because of his height and position on the bike at certain corners" close, it happens because of the geometric differences of the bikes themselves.
