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


Brain: AMA Superbike was head and shoulders the best National series on the planet
What utter ruddy bolleaux ! That's a typical comment from stereotypical American who, like the majority of their compatriots, narrow-mindedly thinks the "planet" ends at the USA coastline. They also don't know how to spell or say "aluminium" and the car which most americans think is the best in the world is considered by the rest of the world to be a gas-guzzling floaty barge that handles like a rhinoceros on a wet clay slope. It is acknowledged world-wide by international riders, international team management and the international media that BSB has for decades been the world's best National Superbike series. Please, know what you're talking about before initiating fingers/keyboard interface.

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


Brain:
Tetley:
Brain: They are both terrible now, BSB is a retirement home on wheels,and the AMA might as well not exist
Nope ! I'm not taking the bait. I stated my opinion. And yours is bolleaux. I can't say fairer than that.
I dont blame you for not taking the bait, then you are hooked with nowhere to go. I dont need a hook for this one , it s like catching fish with your hands. I will start with 2, if you can match them i will give you more- Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey
Unarguably both great riders and great achievers, as were Schwantz and Mamola and others. But when you started this conversation your topic was "the AMA series, the best on the planet" not a listing of great riders. Sorry, but changing the topic is a sign of losing the initial debate.

Brain: They are both terrible now, BSB is a retirement home on wheels,and the AMA might as well not exist but like i said, in the past. the AMA Superbike series was second to none. I dont blame you for not wanting to compare the talent that each series has produced, there is no comparison..
Nope ! I'm not taking the bait. I stated my opinion. And yours is bolleaux. I can't say fairer than that.

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


RSMick: Even when the hated Dorna or Octagen ran it? I think the Italian and Japanese might argue with you as well, the Spanish as regards national championship will have a big thing to say about it because that has taken over from the European championship.
It has certainly improved since Palmer's lot took over, but even back in the days of Hizzy, Plater, and Reynolds it was a super series to watch. The Japanese series doesn't seem to generate much international interest whereas BSB is the ultimate aim for many foreign Superbike riders, especially Australians for whom Japan would be nearer home. The Spanish are acknowledged best in the smaller classes, but their Superbikes don't have a high or wide international reputation. But hey, I posted it mainly as a diversion from the tedious monotony of your endless washer-woman bickering with TF2, but it looks like you'll even argue against your own National series. Foiled again , Moriarty.

Not sure what you use as a barometer to gauge a series, but mine is talent. if you want to compare talent over the history of theses series, i will be more than happy to .
Nah, as the lack of spectators proves, AMA is boring.

TF2:
Tetley:
we should ban the non-essential, i.e. the performance aids such as GPS and the technology which recognises the bikes location and makes electronic adjustments without the rider's input. That's one of the reasons why I favour limiting the number of sensors allowed.
Tetley - we are basically on the same page. There is a tipping point where electronics becomes too invasive and autonomous, and then detracts from the skills contest of Racing (& we are well past that). We all know some systems are needed to do basic operations. Its when they displace and replace direct human inputs that it becomes the issue ruining the competition.
We agree on that.

TF 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.
That's another all-encompassing, sweeping statement which fails under closer scrutiny. Your statement rules out all forms of motorsport, anything wind or solar powered, parachuting, all water sports except naked swimming, and all track and field except barefoot events. Electronics are essential to today's MotoGP bikes and they simply will not run without electronic assistance. However we should ban the non-essential, i.e. the performance aids such as GPS and the technology which recognises the bikes location and makes electronic adjustments without the rider's input. That's one of the reasons why I favour limiting the number of sensors allowed.

MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'


RSMick: Then Mr Tbaggs is an I not a we.
Me and Mrs T are deffo a "we".
Mr Tbaggs Maybe you stick to paying for Eurosport as your happy to do so, and let those who are happy to pay for BTsport or Motogp do so, that is true agreeing to differ.
Agreed. But PTV will decimate viewer numbers
We liked the Eurosport TV coverage provided by Sky. We'd rather watch on a decent TV than huddle around a small laptop.
Technology has moved forward since those days like the way we watch TV, I huddle round a 50" TV watching Motogp from the internet, its been possible since TV's started including RGB ports, never mind,DVI, HDMI, Display port, DLNA, SmartTV or casting, basically around 12 years
So I must also pay to upgrade my system to enjoy PTV? That's even more extra cost ! And surely it's impossible for "I" (you, singular) to huddle ? ( Smiley face ).
