MotoGP » Honda would 'stop' if software is controlled


When I go riding and I twist the throttle to much the thing "wheelies". If I get into a corner and wick it up to early, or to hard, the thing will slide, break traction and may spit me off. These things are controlled by me and my right hand, that's why I ride bikes. Great fun. More times than I can remember you meet up with a rider and have a bit of a derby along a twisting road. At the end you may meet up and have a bit of a yap about bikes. The rider then tells me he had traction and wheelie control, and his brothers a computer guru, who mapped the road we just fanged along. He set the mapping up on his bike to stop him being over zealous on the throttle, so he could hold it pinned in the bends. Who had more fun? no brainer I think. That's why I ride motorcycles and watch them race. Oh, and if he offered me a ride on his bike, I would decline. How boring. Just reminds me how much I miss the 500's. Bit of a rant but this debate/topic is getting boring. Enjoy 2014 guys. Go Rossi.

@ herewego Nah buddy your not old fashioned, just a realist who appreciates what real racing is about. That's obvious when you say WSBK and BSB are the most entertaining and exciting forms off motorcycle racing at the moment. The most humorous accident to prove how docile and predictable the electronics have made these bikes, is when MM knocked the sensor off Pedros bike and he highsided. Proves how dependant the riders are on these aids. Technology killed F1 and if Dorna or FIM don't do something soon (I think it's already to late) Moto GP will go down the same path.

Robert I feel the same as you about BMW and from 07 till 09 Kwaka's fielded a GP bike. I remember because Ant West got drafted (ended up shafted) for the Kawasaki ride. He had scored championship points in the then 250 Moto GP class, points in the 600 w/ supersport class, and then went on to score points in the Moto GP class. Don't know if that will ever be repeated.

Finally Honda (team money) has buried the hatchet and come clean with their involvement in Moto GP. It's their way, or the highway. Well I will try and speak for everyone on the same page as me. Goodbye Au revior Arrivederci Auf wiedersehen Adeus Sbohem Despedida And finally in Australian Pi$$ of then. No company or person is bigger than the sport we all love.

MotoGP » Suzuki starts ECU transition


You read what Davide Brivio has to say about the switch to Magneti and copare it to what Nakamoto from Honda has to say. Last year's Honda [ECU] was smaller, cheaper, more capacity! The Magneti Marelli hardware is 50 percent more expensive than Honda's one. So expensive. Hardware, data analysis, software. Unbelievable.” The richest motorcycle manufacturer squaking about the cost, and Suzuki just getting on with it.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: No-one is near Marquez


YAWN ! Cal said the same about Stoner all those years ago. Must be looking for a job at Honda somewhere? His dimise to Ducati hasn't done his career any favours so any door that may open along those lines may be a saviour, lol. Or is he putting some feelers out for a commentary job? Let's just see if he can finish in front of Bradley this year, and then who knows, lol. Money wise he should be O.K. for the future. Why else would you give up a Yamaha satelite ride, where you could mix it with the leaders sometimes, for a Ducati ride, where that is not possible.
