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.

MotoGP » Ducati confirms no GP15 at Sepang I


TedG: Slighting Ducati for not making a self imposed deadline is really not necessary.
Most of the critics simply do not think in depth. Gigi's intention is to turn up at the first round, ready to race, and that includes having an adequate spares back-up. Critics don't appreciate that development parts are mostly one-offs, and won't be passed for production until they are proved and optimised. Duc needs the maximum possible time to juggle the various components into the best-working mix so the final spec has to be decided at the latest possible date. Factor-in that the GP15 is a wholly new machine and there will be very few carry-over components from the GP14 and it is apparent that making enough spares for a weekend's racing is a BIG, TIME-CONSUMING JOB. Therefore risking their (probably) only complete bikes at Sepang 1 with inadequate spares resources could mean being unable to complete the weekend. And that would be foolish. And foolish Gigi is not.

MotoGP » Satellite ‘winning packages’ in MotoGP 2016


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?

MotoGP » Satellite ‘winning packages’ in MotoGP 2016


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.

MotoGP » Stoner to continue Honda MotoGP tests


TF2: 2016 will not be any more of a level playing field than it was in 2014, or what it will be in 2015.
Herve Poncharal and I disagree with you. 2016 has so many differences from what went before that the simplest bikes may be easier to set up than the complicated ones. There could well be upsets. It will be fascinating seeing who adapts quickest and who finds the sweet spot quickest.
