MotoGP » Surgery for Jack Miller


"Stoner he certainly isnt." History here... He's actually quite like Casey. Both have the issue that they're much better at riding the bike than talking to the camera. And Casey actually fell off quite a bit in the smaller classes, and in his first year on a satellite Honda. (He was very very quick, but he binned it a lot.) I (and I think many others) had pretty much written him off as a crasher and a whinger, until he got on the Ducati... It was a very humbling experience to realise just how wrong I'd been. Jack? I dunno yet, that history is yet to be written. I will make one prediction - many regulars here will hate him and dump on him, whether he wins or loses or falls off. Just like Casey - for the same reason. He's very damn good at riding a motorbike. He's not so damn good at talking to a camera.

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’


"When have I considered BSB inferior? Whether the racing is considered much better is down to opinion, there is no fact there. I personally don't care much for the series as its a resting place for old riders, it does little for rider development." Now hold on a minute... As an Australian, a Casey Stoner fan, and a sometimes critic of Valentino GOAT... it doesn't feel entirely natural or instinctive to jump up and defend the British SBK championship, but... It is almost certainly the best and highest level domestic competition in the world. And it does teach, encourage and promote very safe and fair racing. They go fast and they try hard, but they're extremely fair with each other and conscious of each other's safety. To do consistently well in BSB, and not get tarred & feathered, or run outa town on a rail, is a very high recommendation in deed.

1) You all say pretty much the same thing, so I don't quite see why you need to attack and insult each other, throw terms like 'slander' and 'libel' around. 2) Motor racing (top level) has never been about how the current generation would get on with 30 ~ 50 year old technology. I think Marc Marquez would die inside a week if he had to race the machines that Roberts & Sheene raced. Those riders would (probably) not be competitive on today's machinery, and today's riders would kill themselves or quit very damn quick if they had to deal with 70s or 80s kit. 3) The idea of banning all electronics today is ridiculous. That is like saying in 1930 ~ '35 that they should race on solid wooden wheels. Yeah, that'd show who the real men are, but we actually want to see a race - not a game of Russian Roulette. 4) Factories and manufacturers load the competition to suit themselves. Yeah, and? Gosh oh Golly - When did that start? I'd hate to think that poor BSA and Triumph had to deal with that

MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'


TF2 - the way I read it is exactly the opposite. They haven't neutered the bike, they've turned all the safety net stuff right off, let him go out and play on it like Stoner. 'Open the throttle too hard, kid, and it'll throw you. Now learn to ride it. When you get that down pat, we'll start looking at electronic tricks that will help you go faster.' Before you start trying to set up or calibrate Traction Control, it'd be good idea to get used to what the bike is like and how it behaves when there is none. That's what they're doing. Danny Pedrosa had his TC taken out on one corner. He fell down on the next corner... Maybe that's what they're trying to not repeat.

MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'


NineTimes: @ yearby... Lol, Rossi punching Biaggi? Lol, no surprise,... Again, can you tell us when and where exactly did Rossi punched Biaggi?
In the stairwell, leading to the after race interviews, at the Australian GP one year. Biaggi shaped up to take a swing at Rossi, and about three people grabbed him to stop it, so Rossi took his moment and laid at least one on Max while the entourage were holding him. Caught on camera.

MotoGP » Moto3 Malaysia - Race Results


We should note, Jack didn't start this stuff, Marquez and others did. After many, many hard moves which were not disciplined or punished in any way, Jack started treating others the way they've treated him. Second, note that all those moves were hard but fair. None of them was in contravention of the basic rules or standards of the sport. They may have been a little 'harsh', but they did obey the simple rules of motorsport. He never once moved over on anybody unless he was ahead or directly side by side. And (unlike several of Doctor Rossi's famous moves) he never once left a competitor with nowhere to go. The moves were a little harsh - but several harsh moves have been made on him, and nothing has been done about it. They were 'racing incidents'. Ok, so now Jack is giving back some racing incidents...

MotoGP » Moto3: Estrella protest against Miller, Kent rejected


JedPB67: Jack Miller is the biggest hypocrite going...... You can't have it both ways, either dish it out and keep quiet when you get it back or don't do it at all.
Horse feathers! Marquez dished it out long and hard, and when it became clear and past clear that race direction was never going to do anything about it, Jack changed tactics, and started to give back what he's been on the receiving end of most of the season. Now suddenly Jacks is a hypocrite? No, Jack is now playing the game the way others have played it with him.

MotoGP » Moto3: Vazquez wins - Miller, Marquez slug it out at Sepang


And an official protest has been lodged by the Marquez camp, against Miller. Ok, let's see how that plays out. Jack has been on the receiving end of a number of very questionable moves this season, and while he hasn't lodged any protest, nothing what-so-ever has been done about them. Ok, so now it seems Jack has taken his gloves off as well. Now there's a protest against him. Oh... Let's see how that plays out.

pogo: Lol kneedeagon, you mean like: ...
Sorry to edit, but too long, no go. 1)The point I am trying to make, is that several of the most famous and applauded Rossi passes, in years gone by, were more brutal and closer to the edge of the rules than anything Jack Miller did today. 2) As V4Poweeer noted, Jack didn't make any of those moves because he'd messed up and was in too hot, he made several very hard overtakes, which involved some light contact. 3) Jack would tell you himself, that in his previous experience, those moves would have earned some kind of action from the authorities. You don't pull moves like that at an Australian club level meeting and expect to hear nothing about it. But moves like that have been made repeatedly against him, most of the season. So now Jack has also taken his gloves off. 4) What happens now will be extremely interesting. If Jack gets penalised, punished / disciplined in any way for this, then why were none of the previous
