MotoGP » How big is too big for MotoGP?

Circular arguments.At the moment the bigger riders are handicapped but if minimum bike/rider weight is brought in then the smaller riders are handicapped. It could be said that bigger riders should find another sport. That argument could be used against the smaller riders too. At least with the minimum bike/rider weight option the handicap would be equal. I think my first post on this thread still rings true ( despite the disagrees that it collected. ) Rider bulk DOES matter otherwise we wouldn't be discussing it, there would be nothing to discuss.

MotoGP » How big is too big for MotoGP?

Brian......I agree. The problem with adding weight is, simply, where do you add it to make things fair to all. One manufacturer or rider might want the weight added more to the front, and another might want the weight added more to the rear. That itself might vary from circuit to circuit. Obviously the weight cannot be added to the rider. I suppose the best solution is to have the weight near to the centre of gravity of the bike and made permanent. Easier said than done. "No one said size didnt matter......." Not quite right...plenty said that it doesn't matter otherwise Dani would be a multiple World Champion.

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'

TrueFan.......I'll consider myself £ollocked. I'll watch it in future, although maybe, when I'm using sarcasm, I should use a special icon. I did notice ( I was paying attention ) but it's not that significant in my eyes. When a rider has been around since Victorian times ( special icon ), he's bound to knock up a record haul of points. Admirer yes, defender yes, one of his biggest fans.....maybe not. I do feel though, that knocking Rossi is like saying that Alison Krauss is no good at fiddle playing.
