MotoGP » Honda would 'stop' if software is controlled


If there were to be some limitations on the Technology/Electronics I would hate to be the one to do it. It's a bit like, for instance, tackling the Global overpopulation problem. It is too late, if anything should be done then it should have been done decades ago. You could say that slick tyres should never have been allowed, after all that has no relevance to road bikes. If the rule makers had stopped with treaded tyres then bike development would have followed a whole different path. I've no idea when the line should have been drawn, I just feel that it should have been. Over the years some of the rules have come about in order to increase the numbers on the grid, which is OK but at the same time Hondas' cash, and, to a lesser extent Yamahas' cash, has been the main reason why the grids get so sp**** in the first place.

MotoGP » BT Sport reveals MotoGP TV line-up


herewego....I checked out the table of who won what in all the races, all the 3 classes. Obviously a long list and yet only a couple or so are not from Spain. Redding, Kallio and Rossi. www.motogp.com/en/Results+Statistics/Statistics Don't enter any details, just hit 'enter' It's scary to see it laid out in black and white.

MotoGP » Honda would 'stop' if software is controlled


I'm retired and know nothing much about anything. I do know, however, that there is a point where all the increase and sophistication in electronic control of the bikes will become a step too far. I think that point was reached years ago. I remember, for example, one of the riders complaining that his bike was out-dragged down the straight because his anti-wheely system cutting in strangled his bikes' acceleration. I know let's have insane power from the engine for acceleration. Let's develop something to stop the front trying revolve round the rear wheel. Oh no that's limited our acceleration. Let's develop......ad infinitum.
