RR » Guy Martin: Tyco BMW deal stopped me from retiring


billy fitzsimons: I just can't understand how michael is not on the bmw,there's nobody more committed,and as the saying goes ,if it's not broke why fix it.
It's not his riding which puts teams off. It's his mouth and his attitude. He doesn't turn up at promotional events e.g. at Barton Bike Night he was advertised but didn't show- the people on the stand where he should have been said he hadn't contacted them, they didn't know where he was, and they were definitely not at all pleased. It was revealed in MCN that he sometimes doesn't show up at meetings or appointments with some of the top people in International racing. He allows his mouth to run off, such as at the NW200 when his brother was being interviewed on TV and Michael interrupted in a very ignorant manner. He's his own worst enemy when it comes to getting lucrative rides, and most teams don't keep him for longer than season. Sad but true.

RR » Guy Martin: Tyco BMW deal stopped me from retiring


Tomco: As DBL pointed out, Guy is pretty much unbeatable round Olivers Mount. Ive been round there and its as scary as anywhere.
D*mned right it is. People need to ride Oliver's Mount to realise just how scary it is. Narrow ( MUCH narrower than Cadwell Park) all the way round, no run-offs or gravel traps, tree-lined for half of the lap, steep climbs and steep descents. The first corner after the start is a tight uphill hairpin. The last proper corner before the main start and finish "straight" ( It's not "straight") is an acute downhill hairpin where, if you overshoot, you will be airborne down the hill side. I've done laps there on a road bike several times when it is open to the public, and I marvell at how anyone dare race there. " Scary" really doesn't do it justice. It's terrifying. Guy's achievements there fill me with respect every time.

rsd: Tea-bag Martin turns his trouser pocket inside out as he walks past and all you boys follow along...:-)
rsd: Hey mister...are you a hipster...or a hobo....
What's with this trouser fetish ? Hipsters are low-waisted pants and the Lincolnshire lad is definitely not pants in any sense of the word. :-) Yes, Michael is fast and uncompromising. Yes, Guy is an odd-ball. But now it's Guy's turn on the BMW and only after TT2015 will we be able to compare their merits..

MotoGP » ‘Healthy’ MotoGP facing ‘optimistic future’


Brain We have already established that there are many players who can afford to play in GP besides Honda and Yamaha, and we established that every racing series, including BSB, has back markers. Are the rules in BSB to damned expensive for anyone except the biggest 4 teams to afford. You took this same beating last week, why do it again.
Brain, we've seen you employ this tactic before, very recently, changing the subject to bashing BSB, about which you have nil actual experience and scant knowledge. The subject is "Healthy MotoGP facing optimistic future". Changing the subject to BSB is a sure sign of a failing initial argument. You took this same beating last week, why do it again?

bigphilsp12: tetley and tomco you shout be totally embarrassed for your posts.
Certainly not. No reason to be.
You obviously have little or no knowledge of the sport full stop.
Don’t know about Tomco, but I’ve been to the NW200 last year, the TT and the Grand Prix on the IoM several times, and been to MotoGP in Spain and WSBK at Monza, plus BSB at many UK tracks. What is your experience?
Before knocking Michael Dunlop about 'running off at the mouth'
I’m not knocking MD- he’s a terrific rider and has been pleasant enough whenever I’ve met him. I am commenting on how teams regard him and why they don’t renew his contracts. He very nearly didn't find a ride for 2014, having upset so many teams.
To suggest a comparison is how Guy will ride the BM at the Island in 2015 is complete rubbish
We’ll see, won’t we. Until then the jury is out.

shamarone: you are correct sir...! (Ed McMahon voice)
Who ?
shamarone and what makes you think this is my "home" as opposed to just my current address...? LOL unbeknownst, these are 2 different things aren't they. voting rights are a luxury extended only to citizens.
LOL I didn’t specify a location but my comment probably applies to wherever you call “home”. The whole world is in deep doo-doo right now.
shamarone I've made a conscious choice to be HERE helping you gents solve the problems you haven't been able to solve (clearly), and helping the rest NOT be less than what they think they ought to be.
S1, You are so benevolently altruistic you make Mother Theresa look selfish. What would we do without your guidance?. See? You’re more entertaining when you lighten up, Bro, Hombre, Compadre, Mon Ami or whichever. Hee-hee ( Smiley Face )

MotoGP » ‘Healthy’ MotoGP facing ‘optimistic future’


shamarone: re: "i think its a case of ,The Song remains The Same"
YOUR song certainly stays the same, bro'. Never mind Led Zep - The Stones and "I can't get no satisfaction" could equally be your theme tune. Why is it that you perpetually major on finding negatives? MotoGP has reversed it's trend and is now developing in a good direction. It can't achieve perfection overnight and one team's perfection is another team's compromise. The imminent Rules and tyre and wheel size changes will generate interest in whose team can benefit the most from them. Sadly, my mate, I don't detect any enthusiasm coming from you. If you can't be enthusiastic about it perhaps International Motorcycle Racing is not the sport for you?

MotoGP » ‘Healthy’ MotoGP facing ‘optimistic future’


s1's vision is different . only s1 generates vetted plans that when put into practice ACTUALLY achieve their goal. in a 1000 years of recorded history, we don't see any evidence of where man solved any problem that plagued him by FIRST ignoring reality...?
Shampoo - your talent, intelligence, organisational ability and keen commercial insight are wasted here. We are not worthy. Surely you should be turning your vast knowledge of 1000 years of history to solving your Government's disastrous home and foreign policies? That's where you are really needed. Go there.
