WSBK » Unstoppable Rea doubles up in Thailand

@Mysticmeg So agree with you, most say it takes the best racer on the best bike to win and if someone unexpected wins oh the top boys tyres went off or if they hadn't fell off and a million other excuses, but the truth is JR won races he should never been in with a chance of winning he reminds me of Bob Mac he is albeit on a good bike it's not the best the Aprillia is a rocket and he knows that so where does he make it up. I shall never forget the UGP 250cc in 1962 it is implanted in my mind at least 8 bikes 6 of them Honda's capable of winning four of the other racers multi WCs and Bob Mac beat them by 12 seconds how coming out of a corner that little bit faster changing up gears that little bit earlier, he was leading the TT by about 10 secs the same year when it blew up never won a WC runner up twice I guess his motto must have been win it bin it or blow it up RIP Bob. It is not the straights on which JR has won any of his races unlike some.

MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’

@HRC. I was just saying the oval Honda was a revolution. Had FIM in their foolishness IMHO not put the development on hold Honda would have come up with a genuine V8 and blew the competition away, it would have been nothing new as Guzzi had done it but did not have the cash to develop it Honda did. Now FIM in their wisdom decided to go to 250cc twins and 500cc fours MV held out for as long as they could but as everyone knows a 2 stroke will always win, well since they got around to them not seizing all the time. Was this good for racing, how long was it before a record was broken in a 250 race racing off the shelf Yamaha's old twin racers from back in the day or best of all Aermacchi's FIM in their ultimate wisdom destroyed racing for about a decade...IMHO that is

@Abefan. Ernst Degner from memory defected from East Germany took the rotory valve from MZ and sold it Suzuki, he was not only a good racer but also a a good mechanical engineer. Now for those who say everything is new to a particular company well lets start with the tyre which was first made by Dr Dunlop in Belfast for his sons bicycle IT HAS evolved, first engines side valves second overhead third OHC then DOHC there have also been 3 valve heads, I remember when Yamaha came out with the water cooled V4 two stroke and it was not the norm at the time a lot thought it was new yea 30 odd years new besides the obvious computer add ons the only thing that was truly new radical idea was Honda's twin oval 500cc trying to remain 4 stroke. And things just keep on evolving including the machinery that make them.
