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.

MotoGP » Official: Jack Miller to MotoGP with Honda

If I'm not mistaken last year Miller was the the top Honda rider he was either the first Honda 5th 6th or threw it down the road trying to keep up with the KTMs. Now this year Honda is the bike to be on. Now I'm not saying he's going to go out there in his first year and blow the whole field into the weeds far from it but I do believe he will do much better than a lot of posters here would seem to think. Anyhow time will tell and we shall see who can pick them and who can't. Go Ducati.

MotoGP » Rossi: I don’t regret joining Ducati

G/day Aussi. I seem to remember Ago saying that Stoner was like Mike the bike and he was like Rossi he had to have the perfect bike and setup where as Mike and Casey could jump on anything and do well do you remember the 500cc Honda much faster than the MV but a mongrel to hide When asked who was the GOAT well he said Mike and he won more WCs than anyone. DontTesttheX. MM looks more dumb struck than star struck to me.
