MotoGP » Nakamoto wants greater usability from 2015 Honda


TF2: None of the other Honda's will win - only those with the right paint job on the fairing. The other Honda's aren't supposed to win. The only Honda's destined and engineered to make the top step have Repsol on the side, and there is enough fine tuning and tweaking so that Satellite Honda's can run close, but no matter who rides one they'll never find that last 10th - because it won't be there to find. Not a popular thing to say, I know. But there you go. Honda will probably have the best bike again, but there'll only be 2 of those on track. It'd take an anomaly / calamity of massively unlikely proportions for there to be a non-Factory bike on the top step in MotoGP.... ever. Certainly not while the MSMA get to cook the books and design the ECU etc. etc.
Why would Honda deliberately field bikes which aren't competitive? This is Honda we're talking about. They want the first 10 bikes across the line to be theirs. Of course the factory (Repsol) team

MotoGP » Victories for Biaggi, Iddon at SIC Supermoto


I'm getting increasingly weary of TalenFan's (or TF2, same thing) incessant whining about how unfair MotoGP is. It's starting to dominate every thread, regardless of the subject matter. This is exactly what it was like before he got banned last time. It makes this site a drag as I know every informed conversation and debate will be hijacked and filled with multiple agenda posts all saying the exact same thing. TalentFan, I implore you, please stop. Crash, isn't it time you did something to get this site back on track so us MotoGP fans can have a debate about something other than his obsessive agenda??

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’


@TalentFan II - The Opinion Returns I fail to see what all your passionate arguments are aimed at to be honest. Is your goal to make people say "oh, he's right. I'll stop watching MotoGP" ? Or are you just a very determined and elaborate troll? Considering almost every post on this site, regardless of topic, has the same agenda posts from you. I'm starting to think that this is maybe the action of someone very bored and/or bitter. You seem to spent an inordinate amount of time trying to pick apart something you've regularly said you don't like or even watch. A little light bulb has just come on in my head as I type this and I think I'm going to stop reading or replying to your posts. I think the tinterweb phrase I'm looking for is "don't feed the trolls".

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’


TF2: So if all the entrants (and the series needs a full grid) cannot obtain, afford or be permitted access to something, then none of them should have it.x
Back in the real world... Some scenarios for you to consider: - A factory employs a genius technician, a new generation of thinking, brings incredible new ideas to the table. They can't use him because the other teams don't have one. - Privateer team with zero budget arrives on the grid. none of the other teams can use their regular, expensive suspension packages because the privateer can only afford Hagon shocks from M&P. The series is dictated by the lowest common denominator, technology stagnates, the factories withdraw and the grid is full of identical privateer bikes. Sponsors withdraw for the class. In a few years the series is superseded by domestic classes running shop bought road bikes. The series eventually goes bankrupt and ceases to exist. Is this what you'd prefer? I think I know your answe

TF2: Sorry all to bash on. But you're all being had.
Let's assume you're right for a moment... it's all fixed, it's a clever charade set up and run by a shadowy cabal of corporate vampire-like characters. We're all unwitting puppets in their Machiavellian scheme. You and you alone are the only one who has broken through the matrix and can see the truth. You've spent that long trying to persuade everybody else, repeating the exact same message with absolutely no success, you're either deluded or you have some sort of Jesus-like desire to save us and make us see the light. Even if, IF you are right, maybe, just maybe, we don't care and we just like the racing. (You're not right by the way)

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’


TF2: Question: If it could be proved (say) MM could be substituted directly with (say) Alvaro Bautista, and that the very same package would still win the WC.... would you say that..... a) its because AB is as good as MM, or b) it just proved that the rider wasn't an essential part of the 'best all round package"?
"What if...". Totally irrelevant. Honda (the ones with the unlimited magic bag of gold) have decided Marquez is better, or at the very least better suited to their bike, than Bautista. In the same way they've decided one frame is better than another, or one engineer is better than another. Two consecutive world championships suggest it worked for them, so they were right.

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’


TF2: Factories DO "bring forth their best equipment". But only for their own team, thereby controlling and limiting their own customer performance, and by definition taking a supposed rival out of the game for wins from day 1. .
Are you suggesting a rule which says factories must provide equal technology, parts and updates to satellite teams and customer teams? How much would that cost? Wouldn't that mean the company with the biggest budget wins again? How would that level the playing field, apart from turning it into a single make series?

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’


TF2: If there is a) no real parity with the tools each combatant gets.... then its not Sport. b) If the tools are so advanced that they permit consistency and a level of performance that the combatant cannot sustain using his own abilities... then that is not a Sporting Contest.
Oh god, here we go again. How many times must people say this to you? It's a TEAM sport. The factory, the engineers, the crew, the rider and even the PR people, managers, promoters, sponsors and the CEO are part of the team. It's the best all round package. NOT just the best rider. That's what MotoGP is. We get you don't like it, we really do. Please just go watch something else.

MotoGP » Rossi second to Kubica in Monza Rally

SasquatchBob:
Yearby23: You need to all search for his insane overtake on a back-marker through one of the hairpins... He literally forgot he was on a bike. So impressive! Also, awesome looking car.
Any chance of a link? :)
Type in on google:- Valentino Rossi overtake WRC
I found the video pretty much straight after typing that. I tried to delete the post before anyone replied but it wouldn't let me. Thanks though :)
