WSBK » Haslam: Feeling with Aprilia increasing lap by lap


Joeski
Tetley Biaggi is testing for Red Devils and there is talk of him returning to ride, in which case the team's focus will turn to the Italian. Also, IIRC, Leon and Max have history and don't get on too well.
For testing, Aprilia will take Max's input very seriously regarding development, Leon is new to the Aprilia but Leon is already noticeably fast I do not think any conflict will be an issue between Leon and Biaggi Leon has the ride, Biaggi is gap filling for his own excitement and to assist with Aprilia's development that's it
Quote from earlier Crash article “Returning to action as rumours gather that he may make a surprise return to WSB competition with a selection of wild-card rides this year, beginning with the Phillip Island opener.” Depending on lap times, how Max feels, and what cash is offered, I wouldn’t rule out his full-time return. And that would be bad for Leon.

WSBK » Haslam: Feeling with Aprilia increasing lap by lap


Joeski: Haslam reminds me of Guintoli a bit... I think he has the same possible chance of winning the title as Guintoli did....many on here never really thought Guinters would win the title but...the boy did it... I hope Haslam can have the same luck and with a good bike under him he could do it!! Anyway, still have money on Tom to come good in 2015 and win the title.. Let's see how it goes... so many good choices...Davies is looking good, Rea is all the talk now, hope he continues to gel with the Ninja.. I have a little more faith in Guigliano than most so hope 2015 does him some good.
Agreed to all that. but- Biaggi is testing for Red Devils and there is talk of him returning to ride, in which case the team's focus will turn to the Italian. Also, IIRC, Leon and Max have history and don't get on too well.

MotoGP » Ducati confirms no GP15 at Sepang I


shamarone: re: "Most of the critics simply do not think in depth." in depth, in the shallows, somewhere's round the middle...? dunno. re: "Factor-in that the GP15 is a wholly new machine and there will be very few carry-over components from the GP14" 90 degree Desmo excluded.
Nonsense. The engine cases and all the motor internals are all new and different. The engine mountings and swing-arm mounting are different. The only carryover from the GP14 engine is the configuration. The 90 degrees are the same, but they are re-usable degrees and Gigi doesn't have to wait for new degrees to be cast.

Tetley. You dare diss another's English? RS Mick. Should that be a capital 'D' for a town in Norfolk . Tetley. Nice wit. I like that. RS Mick. if we not allowed to use poor grammar? That also should be at least "You dare TO diss another's English?" if not 'how dare you'. Tetley. Acceptable alternatives, but my comment was a rhetorical question,correctly expressed. RS Mick. Strange to be all condescending about this when Brain was merely making a point about a sentence being incomprehensible. Tetley. Brain’s comment which initiated this exchange was a barbed put-down, wholly unnecessary and inappropriate on a forum with an International spread. My point was that he ought to make allowances for others with variable capabilities of English, especially when his own is so flawed. I also freely admit that mine is less than Queen’s standard. I see that Brain’s comment has now been deleted so I’ll call that a satisfactory conclusion.

Brain You can disagree with someones opinion all you want, but when someone states a fact, it is ignorant to disagree and debate. Now, i will state it again, The LCR Honda that Bradl rode was factory spec, as is the LCR Honda Crutchlow will ride next year. The Tech 3 Yamaha's are both factory spec as was Ianonne's Ducati.
My post referred to your criticisms about the use of English. Why are you trying to involve me in your tedious rants about machine specs? However, thank you for exemplifying my earlier para which said "Resorting to criticism while avoiding the actual, relevant content of their comment is puerile and is a definite sign of losing the real debate. QED. NB “someones opinion” should be “someone’s”. “states a fact, it is” does not need a comma. "Yamaha's" apostrophe not needed. “Now, i will” should be capital “I”. “again, The LCR” should not have a capital “T”. “it is ignorant to disagree and debate”. No it isn’t. You dare diss another’s English?

RSMick: When criticising someone else's use of the English language, it is banale for the writer to include schoolboy grammatical errors in his own critique. I'm guessing that the question should start "DO you mind ..." or "WOULD you mind ..." And because the "sentence" is a question, there ought to be a question mark at the end. Resorting to criticism of another poster's English grammar while avoiding the actual, relevant content of their comment is puerile and is a definite sign of losing the real debate, as is lewd inappropriate insults such as "swinging on Rossi's *** sack". Such caustic, inflammatory comments merely indicate the poster's propensity to escalate debates into arguments. Q.E.D.
Did you mean to write 'banal'? Yes I did. Ooops. Even the damn spellchecker didn't flag that. It's fortunate that the subject was grammar, not spelling.

RR » Michael Dunlop to ride factory Yamaha in 2015


Abefan: OR, maybe, just maybe, he has over-demanded/slabbered his way out of meaningful negotiation with Honda and BMW over the past couple of years, and this option was better than running cap in hand round personal sponsors to "build your own team" again. Maybe Monty Python was right, maybe he's not the messiah, maybe he is just a very naughty boy.
I bet he dare not fall out with his major sponsors, Street Sweep. He might be asking them for a job if he upsets any more Team Principals. Maybe Sweet Steep could provide him something for the TT ? I have this image in my head of Mickey D driving the mobile brush wagon. Only joking ! No need to tar and feather me.
