MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


And cue the talentfan drivel............. just read the sentiment here and take the hint that your rubbish is falling on deaf ears. We don't care how many times you repeat the same conspiracy.... Please go spend your time on other internet sites searching for pictures of UFO's and other conspiracy theories........... We and motogp will be just fine without you.........

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


here we go with this showa ohlins crap again............. RSmick............Honda don't own showa anymore, they have no financial interest in the company anymore, they are just technical partners.....It's been like that since 2008..............Dont know how many times i have to repeat that............google it........... All the other open hondas use brembo/ohlins but redding is leading all of them...... Its been the perfect excuse for bautista all along......even if he was on pedrosas bike he would still be slinging it into the countryside on a regular basis

Hondas interest in the Showa corporation is that Showa use there R&D facilities in Tochigi and Saitama (and in the states if I'm not mistaken).........I was always of the knowledge that Honda let their controlling stake in the company go in 2008 and thats when they switched to Ohlins on the Repsol bike..... Anyway......... The point I'm trying to make is that if he is beating all the open Hondas with the showa suspension then it can't be that bad. I think that bike is going as fast as it can go right now......ohlins wont make him any faster on it. As for Bautista, well I dont think he is a good gauge for the showas. When he was on the Suzuki, Stoner used to follow him and he said he could win races on it (I believe him) but Bautista never came close and was always throwing it into the scenery. They were using Ohlins then as well, didnt help him then.... I would love to see Marquez using the Showa stuff, then we would really know... Its not holding Tom Sykes in wsbk back either, against

Where did you get those figures? I think the Showas are better than people think, like I said I think Bautista is a bad gauge. Do you honestly think marquez would be up to a second a lap slower than he is now if he was using showa...I don't think so........I would bet money he would win a race if he was using Showa........... Bradl switched to Brembo this year and he is going slower than he was when he was using Nissin..........see my previous comment about simoncelli and the nissin brakes........ Its the perfect excuse for bautista to justify his poor showing. fact is that bike is totally wasted on him......and showa aren't going to develop further with his input............ Dont know where they are going to end up now...Not sure the Aprillias will use them??

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


some serious riding talent in that picture! I would kill to have those three bikes in my garage........... Mick Doohan...what a legend. Hondas greatest ever champion so far I think, but if Marquez stays long enough and carries on the way he is then that may change.........
