MotoGP » Honda would 'stop' if software is controlled


Nakamoto is a boof-head..Rider-aids are for pussies. Fans don't want to see the planets supposed best having their bottoms wiped by a computer. They don't want to buy new bikes at a 30% premium because it has a few geeky flashing lights on the dash. The majority love/ride bikes for the risk and the danger. Bikers on the whole are a bit naughty and rebellious. If we wanted to be safe and sensible, we'd take the air-bagged tin box. I urge everyone thinking of buying new, NOT to give their money to Honda. Vote with your wallet. Plenty of products from other manufacturers who haven't forgotten what the spirit of motorcycling is all about.

Chassis, engine and tyres are inert, cold and don't make decisions. The electronics on these bikes have artificial intelligence. They adapt to conditions and control rider input with the sole intention of making 20 litres and tyres last. They are adaptive, location based and RACE SPECIFIC. What good are corner-by-corner strategies to make fuel last on street bikes? Totally unnecessary and complete overkill. You'll never see them because there's a petrol station at the end of the road. Answer me this Mick..if Honda are so "Green" and concerned about the planet, why haven't they introduced Direct Injection technology to ANY of their production bikes?

Why do apologists for rider aids always say the same thing? RIDER AIDS do exactly what it says on the tin..and many of us are saying at this level, the very pinnacle, we don't want them deciding the outcome of races and disadvantaging those that don't have them as well sorted. They ARE NOT the same as better hardware such as chassis, engine & tyres etc...mechanical improvements. If a rider relies on electronic aids to help, they should be penalised more than the guy who has greater skill and doesn't need them so much. Fuel economy & engine durability rules means it don't work like this..it's not flat-stick racing at all. If HRC want a challenge along these lines..go endurance racing.
