MotoGP » Pol Espargaro inspired by past Marquez battles

Customer Hondas! Real ones! How was that possible? Maybe they didn't have all the electronic garbage, pneumatic valve springs and seamless transmissions to gain a whopping one second or whatever the law of diminishing returns has made available after spending all those millions. And please spare me the "but this is prototype" fallacy or I might throw up. Yeah who cares anymore? Lets just get rid of those other bikes. They can never win anyway. Just have 4 bikes for MotoGP, 2 Hondas and 2 Yamahas.

MotoGP » Phantom front row for Iannone, Bautista

So hopeless riders like Iannone can only go fast if they get a tow? Apparently this towline takes them all the way around the race track, but it only works during practice and qualifying. Once the race starts any lap times that a rider completes are not the result of this "tow", but due to their skill and daring. Stupid claim number 2. "He just followed Marquez". Seriously? So if you want to win the race all you have to do is JUST follow Marquez. Well that should be easy enough because it seems that lots of Crash posters think it is.

MotoGP » Marquez wary of weather, rivals heading to Le Mans

Tony Elias' fifteen minutes of fame occurred because he was given Pedrosa's "overnight special" Michelins. The "overnight specials" were usually only reserved for the chosen ones. The rest of the riders had to take whatever was lying around in the back of the Michelin truck. This is why Stoner, 2006, rode way over the limit on his satellite Honda with rubbish tyres. He knew that with the wrong passport and his "special personality" the only way to get noticed was stick it amongst the "chosen ones" and accept the crashes that come with it. He lucked out and got a factory ride on the Ducati that handled like a pig but had good tyres and, for a short while, a power advantage. The brainless fans all believed that the only way any mortal could beat the chosen one was by cheating, so they bleated as loud and as often as possible that the Ducati was a masterpiece of electronic wizardry, had vast amounts of power and was the second coming.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Soft tyre better for our bike

@ codger The 260 hp they have now costs the planet and has to be controlled by a computer and a sea of geeks. 260hp from a supercharged engine is cheap and you have a perfectly linear power delivery. No need for pneumatically controlled valves, no need for millions of dollars of electronics to tame the savage power that the current stone age "naturally aspirated" engines deliver.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Soft tyre better for our bike

@KnowNothing "The sheer amount of technology and ingenuity is something that I have never seen a private outfit come even close to rivaling. How could they?" Really? Britten had far more innovation and technology on his homemade bike than any factory effort of the day. I can buy carbon fiber wheels for my road bike but they are not allowed in MotoGP because . . . . ???? For the same reason that forced induction is not allowed and that is no reason at all. MotoGP is technically boring and pitiful. It is centred around electronics and a collection of draconian rules that stifle innovation. We are not living in the sixties anymore. If you want to make a six cylinder engine we now have rapid prototyping and 5 axis CNC machines. Fuel: limited Induction: limited Capacity: limited Weight: limited Wheel material: limited No of cylinders: limited Bore diameter: limited Tyres: limited I am criticising the rule makers and the masses not the factories. They could make an innovative machine t

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Soft tyre better for our bike

TalentFan is spot on. Just look how many times "fans" use the words prototype class. What a joke. The only thing prototype about it is the electronics, The rest is a load of rubbish. Road going Desmosedicis engines are banned from MotoGP because the bore is too large. Durbahn's road bikes weigh less than MotoGP bikes. A 1000cc FireBlade with a rotrex supercharger will have way more power than MotoGP rubbish at a fraction of the cost and with a perfectly linear power delivery. No need for millions of dollars wasted on electronic garbage. Do the press ever bring these topics up? Never! Most of them are too clueless to even think about such topics. Go on CRASH put in a poll so we can vote on allowing forced induction in MotoGP. It will never happen because they are all drinking from the same trough. Every journalist, every magazine, and all of the fans just keep swallowing the same garbage.
