MotoGP » Second wrist surgery for Nicky Hayden

Beating himself up and potentially crippling wrist injury to carry for the rest of his life.... So he can ride a bike designed to be hopelessly uncompetitive. I like Nicky as a rider. But IMO It's way past time that he and ALL non factory pilots cried enough and told Dorna to ram it. Riders are using up their careers as grid fillers, as Dorna exploit them while failing them utterly. Without non factory entrants MotoGP hasn't enough entrants. Yet they are treated as 3rd class grid fillers so the Factory teams get a field to humiliate and look good for fans too damn stupid to care. Maybe if the privateers all pulled the plug then Dorna would be forced to reconsider and put a series in place where all entrants got a genuinely fair go, not just expected to waste careers and risk their health so that idiots can call them carp for not being able to beat Marquez. Get out Nicky. You'll get no thanks nor kudos for staying and zero chance of a competitive ride.

MotoGP » Home MotoGP title not a target for Marquez

There will always be those like me who will never be able to look at the so-called record smashing talent that is MM without a massive and totally valid question mark. History will be full of the same comments as those directed at Ago. Which is that Marquez's vast equipment and electronics data advantage over a 3 tier field meant he only really had one guy to beat - Pedrosa. No doubt MM is world class. But smashing records is totally meaningless under such ridiculous circumstances. Let's set up a series where I get to race the MotoGP stars. I get a Moto2 bike and they all get shopping mopeds. I guarantee I can smash every record set given enough races. But that would not make me a valid WC, and this nonsense means MM cannot be one either. (Cue lots of disagrees from people who could not find common sense and reality if it was in 6 foot pink neon letters on front of them).

MotoGP » Laverty, PBM run second at Sachsenring

It's hard for fans to have a clue just how good the riders are and how hard they try in MotoGP. For one the cameras always focus on the Factory boys, and fans get so little involved with the sport in reality that they totally fail to comprehend just how much difference there is in machine performance through the field that the rules permit. So the ignorant fanbase blithely decide that Marquez is the only guy out there with serious talent. You only have to read the endless drivel on here for abundant proof of that sort of mentality. It's also clear that The MotoGP fanbase doesn't care about this and without fans who demand all entrants get a fair chance to race that'll never change. All the non factory teams and riders should IMO abdicate from MotoGP pronto - you're being shafted and wasting your careers here. If fans are too stupid to fight for you then they don't deserve you, and Dorna have no series without you yet they don't look after you either.

MotoGP » Pits to victory for Marquez in Germany

Brain: . If i walk out this door, im never coming back. Bye, i mean it, you will never see me again, Bye. Im serious as a heart attack, i will never come back, BYE.!!!!!
Aw leave old talentfan alone, if he slinks off back to his little valley there'll be no comedy left, no one to tell us how fantastic speedway is and he hasn't even started to reference crappy old science fiction movies.
You jump on the bandwagon there Yosser. I'm flattered. For someone with so little mental capacity to spare for anything other than breathing to actually remember so much of my posts is a rare compliment!

MotoGP » Pits to victory for Marquez in Germany

Over 100 posts and only Codger on page 7 make the really important observation. That is that the top 4 super-computers (oh sorry - for you sensitive sheeple that'll be motorcycles) breezed through the field like the rest were on commuter bikes. Never mind MM, or Vale etc. THAT is the vitally important bit that most fans miss completely in their headlong rush to be to first to ram their heads up a top 4 riders crevice. Those who (even for totally the wrong reasons) get all defensive about MotoGP never delivering a boring race are a tuly correct. Because it's a travesty to even hint that it might be Racing. But it seems there are masses dumb enough for that not to be important. Don't worry Brain, Realist (and others with similarly hugely ironic usernames).. I'm not hanging around. There's no point.

Maybe I just miss your witty repartee Brain. Or maybe just because you don't want me to. I posted. I will again if I wish to. How come you can post something as good as the Stoner post above this one (meaning you comprehend fully the Machiavellian scullduggery in MotoGP) - yet act so damn thick the rest of the time? Even Rossi seems to be contributing now, saying that the 2016 bikes will be like starting from scratch. We know that won't be the case, and any problems the new tyres etc. cause will soon be negated by data collection, analysis and data solutions. When I watch it's now just to see that what I expect to happen, happens. Which it does. And I check here to see that 99% totally ignore or fail to see the reality. Which they do. So scoff away old son - it's expected.

MotoGP » Marquez credits 'calm' team for Assen win

JasonLewis: TalentFan So you're convinced that it's Hondas quantum computer doing it all for Marquez? He just hits "go" and hangs on? I don't like TC either, but come on man!
No. Don't get all sensationalist. That's Brains job. Marquez like all GP guys is one of the best. That does not mean that he doesn't have a shed load if electronics helping him out better than anyone else can afford though now does it? And even the best of the best could easily crash a light mega powerful GP bike. And have done - esp in iffy conditions. It doesn't happen anything like as much any more though. And electronics not super human reflexes is why.

MotoGP » ‘Over the moon’ Parkes pulls off slick trick

Cracking job. And.... another rider giving lie to the claim that only the 'aliens' are worthy. BP just proved that if there wasn't massive machine and electronics disparity in motoGP that we could be treated to some real racing, and that maybe not just the chosen ones would always populate the winners circle. Every time AE puts in a good show everyone yelps that its basically cos he's on a near-full-factory M1. So they can handily ignore that fact that it isnt actually a full factory M1, which means he must be doing a damn good job on a bike thats not even at factpry satellite spec. I suppose that just because its 'only' a top 10, that the shallow grunters will be able to ignore BP's sterling performance as insignificant and proving nothing. Stupid. Its everywhere. Which is why MotoGP relegates anyone other than the chosen ones to bridesmaid, support act grid-filler status. Pity. Cos Broc & PBM delivered a message on Saturday that should be heeded.

WSBK » Frustrated Rea: I feel we’ve made zero progress

Hmm both sides of the 'electronics' coin here maybe? Throw an army of techie geeks and hundreds of hours at a system and you have a bike that performs so well that it cleans up in MotoGP. Throw electronics at a bike and don't get them absolutely spot on and you have a package that simply cannot compete. Even though its made by the same company that wins everything in MotoGP. Electronics. Its no secret that I loathe their use on racing motorcycles, so that they affect the performance of the bike and rider so much. If WSBK went all 'BSB' and scrapped the electrickery, then at least riders like Rea could stand or fall on their own merits. People don't consider that while electronics can enhance performance, that they can also impede performance by preventing a rider from making inputs to salvage a situation too. Just like I am unconvinced that Marquez would do anything like as well without OTT electronics in MotoGP, I tend to think that Rea would do rather better than he does in a
