MotoGP » Gabarrini talks Redding, RCV1000R


TrueFan......Many thanks for the lesson, me being so old I'm not sure I could follow it though. You forgot to mention the braking problem involved with stopping the extra weight, I suspect that was an oversight on your part. You also didn't take into account the difference in the 'moment of inertia' between taller riders and the tiddlers. C of G must also be considered, along with air drag coefficient being greater for the taller riders. Perhaps Mr Gabbarini would welcome some input, he mentions Scott's height and weight more than once, so it is obviously of concern to him. I would imagine that me and Gab are right otherwise there wouldn't be 22 littleys and only 2 tall riders on the grid.

MotoGP » Pirelli: No plans to make MotoGP tyre bid


To my mind the bikes should have to fit the tyres, not the tyres fit the bikes. MotoGP bikes produce far too much power. Manufacturers throw millions at the engines to ever increase the output and for what, a few secs a lap faster than the 600s. It doesn't matter anyway, if it did nobody would watch the 600s, let alone the 250s. Blokes are whizzing around the IOM at silly speeds, and the races are far longer, perhaps MotoGP should use those tyres. Make them all lop off one of their 4 cylinders, that might be an answer. That's an Idea, 750cc bikes lapping faster than 1000cc WSBK bikes. Bring it on.
