MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test 2015 Honda, Michelins


Oh boy Anyone who thinks that the biggest motorcycle company in the world would not (if they could get him) the very best data collector they could find. They offered Casey a fortune to keep riding for them I'll he's making a nice wad of cash just to put them on the right path. And as mentioned people seem to forget Casey's injuries and illness in 08 09 and 2012. Casey I wish you'd give some of your input to Ducati.

MotoGP » Marquez success fuels hunger for 'more titles'


@Porkpie. Not 20 but I do remember Honda fielding 6 works 125s 250s and 350s with world champions most of them riding them. No TC no tyres that grip to the road like $hit to a blanket. Obviously no where near the same speed ( well not until the the 250 6s anyway ) and yes Honda was still fielding 4 or 5 works bikes. Yamaha fielded 2 works bikes as did Suzuki. Was the racing more exciting well yes it was, speed isn't everything. One thing that hasn't changed the lightweight classes were more exciting.

MotoGP » Marquez success fuels hunger for 'more titles'


@Codger. You're right about Ago after Hailwoods retirement he had no competition until he moved to Yamaha. As I stated in an earlier post the 125s and the 250s were the exciting races. No sponsors lots of works bikes and WCs riding them so no extra favours for anyone as the pit crews looked after all the works bikes so it was up to the best on the day Honda however did have an advantage as at the beginning they had 6 works bikes while Yamaha, Susuki and MZ only had two works bikes. FIM destroyed all the great racing for years when they put a stop to the multi cylinders and as Honda were devoted to 4 strokes I reckon they would have went to V8s to beat the V4 Yamahas if necessary.
