BSB » Buchan: I made a mistake


Oli: @Tetley Plenty of young riders before have had spells crashing, plenty will again It hurts their results as much as anyone else's it's not deliberate, Please lets not do with bike racing what they have done with F1 and turn it into football, where any contact is considered an offence and you have people crying foul at every opportunity..
I made it quite clear that the penalties should apply only when the fault was clearly defined as causing another rider injury or costing podium positions. Yes, plenty of young riders will crash and crash again and when they are the only ones involved it is part of their learning to race. But this is a sport, not a free-for-all where taking out another rider in a move where the aggressor knows the other rider may be unseated and/or injured is acceptable. Losing 10 places on the grid would soon teach that making a dangerous move and knocking off another rider is not just a "racing incident" , it is creating a circumsta

BSB » Buchan: I made a mistake


Buchan causes crash, Bridewell robbed of points, Buchan gets away with it. Last corner take-outs are becoming too common. Going for the move without consideration for the safety of others is inevitably going to result in serious injuries to one or both riders. Contact on the final corner which influences podium positions needs to be examined and if judged to be one rider clearly the cause and the other rider unfairly handicapped there needs to be some action taken. The "something to gain, nothing to lose " mindset needs to be kept in check by modifying the rules so that if one party is clearly guilty he DOES suffer a penalty. One method worth consideration to achieve this would be to move a rider back say 10 places on the grid of the next race if found guilty and for a second offence they should be excluded from the next race. Accidents happen, but one rider deliberately putting another into danger warrants punishment. The "Professional Foul" has no place in racing.

WSBK » Rea: My wife wouldn’t speak to me if I won title here


JR's success has shown what most of us, with a few blind exceptions, already knew. He is proving that he was held back for years by that old clunker FireBlade. It is a conundrum why Honda have persevered for so long with that once-good but now no-hope, out-classed relic of a bygone age. Put simply, their 'Blade lost its "edge" a long time ago and has been a blunt tool , made to look better by virtue of JR's skills and fearless riding. Honda continue to show no signs of announcing a replacement for the creaky Fireblade, or do they? The road-going RCv213 VS, while being exotica only for the super-rich, has a proven and successful basic platform on which to develop a Superbike challenger, and developments handed down from MotoGP would immediately unleash a far higher potential than the deliberately down-tuned road bikes. I'm expecting that an RCV213VS WSB racer will break cover sooner rather than later.

MotoGP » Suzuka: Honda apologises for Stoner accident


Realist:
badeddie: I guess you guys don't know what is freedom of speech or the definition of Democracy
Democracy does not apply to PRIVATE websites. Democracy and the 1st Amendment applies mainly to not being ARRESTED/PERSECUTED for your words and it protects you from government censorship. A privately run website does not have to post your words or allow you to say whatever you want to say. It's not an infringement of your 1A rights.
Crash.net is a UK based site. The 1st amendment is part of the constitution of the USA . When badeddie can quote from the British definition of Freedom of Speech and Democray his comments will be valid. Until then his comments are not applicable and we here in UK will not take lectures from him on those topics.

MotoGP » Suzuka: Honda apologises for Stoner accident


Jeez, they are still at it - this is a thread about Honda's apology for Stoner's throttle malfunction, but so many narrow minded one-topic posters are still chomping at the opportunity for a tirade of Rossi bashing. Do they not have the intellect to recognise that Honda's apology has nothing to do with VR46 ? Do they not have the intellect to recognise that Stoner's accident had nothing to do with VR46 ? Do they not have the intellect to recognise that everything that could possibly be said comparing CS to VR has already been said on far too many occasions ? If Stoner dropped a donut on the cake-shop's floor they'd find a way to bring VR46 into the topic.

MotoGP » Suzuka: Honda apologises for Stoner accident


I find it extraordinary that a technically advanced company such as Honda still rely on a throttle CABLE, even if it is only a short one to connect to their fly-by-wire engine management system. And it is remarkable that they can't get a simple cable to work properly for more than a hour. And it is even more remarkable that they have no effective fail-safe system such as a secondary cable for closing.

MotoGP » Stoner, Honda talk Suzuka accident


FredGassit: Realist and Tetley VR was raised by some others in their comments. Go back through the thread and see what has been said.
What has been said is the mostly the same as has been said in all the other Stoner threads. A few posters have properly given their opinions and observations on Stoner's crash at Suzuka but the debate rapidly degenerated into the same old CS versus VR argument containing nothing which is new, fresh, enlightening or revealing. CS crashing at Suzuka has nothing whatsoever to do with VR46, irrespective of who initiated the comparison.
