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.

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.!!!!!
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


I've not gone AWOL. It's just there's nothing to say. The mixed conditions mixed things up a bit that's all. Dovi did everything right and got a well deserved 2nd. Other than that it would all really be business as usual except for both Factory Yams screwing up - VR with decisions and JL with his race pace. That VR could ride from the back to 5th is a reflection of others making big errors and also just how good that Yam package really is - streets ahead of anything except the Repsol Hondas. And yes- the wet used to be a great skill leveller - look at Moto2 for proof there. But now the electronics have meant that the wet doesn't do that in MotoGP anything like as much. It was decisions mostly not performance on a wet/dry track that mixed it up a bit at Assen, the bike performance was as predictable as always. Assen didn't show us anything new. Just proved that riders like Dovi and AE are a damned sight better than most so-called fans give them credit for. But that isn't new eithe

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

MotoGP » Record lap puts Aleix Espargaro fastest


Simple answer. I don't know who is. It might be one of several or it might be none. The tech clues the issue so winning now doesn't prove anything. If you read my posts you'd know I am not a Rossi fan nor a fan of any one rider alone. I have done my fair share of upsetting the yellow hordes by daring to voice truths or criticism of Rossi. You should not assume everyone has the same motivation and bias as most on here have. There are a few of us who maintain independence and impartiality. Like I said. I am a a racing enthusiast. Which means I want there to be no reason to doubt that the winner getting the plaudits fully deserves them.

MotoGP » Smith’s test set-up working at Assen


Smith seems very intelligent and also has a very systematic and thorough approach. It's refreshing that he is also honest that he is admitting errors and that he is open to learning from other riders. I feel that candid and clearly thoughtful comment like this should be appreciated and respected, not used as a stick to beat the guy with. He's clearly working very hard and putting his all into it, while not complaining not making excuses. If it comes to pass that he doesn't quite make it in MotoGP then it certainly won't be for lack of brains, work ethic and indeed bottle. Things his detractors seem to overlook - probably because they lack those attributes themselves.

MotoGP » Record lap puts Aleix Espargaro fastest


Btw Brain. Im well aware that in asking me this you were trying to lead me to name (probably) Rossi as the beneficiary and man to show the world he's the best with no rider aids. You'd have been crouched waiting to pounce, dying to make the claim that all my argument is because Im a Vale fan and really just seeking the same shallow hero worship as the very worst elements of his extensive fanbase. Sorry to disappoint you. Unfortunately for you, my motivation is genuine. I am a Racing Enthusiast. Not a sychophant. I support real racing competition and fair play for ALL the riders. There is no point nor value in celebrating a win if that win was won with unfair advantage.
