MotoGP » Lorenzo: It feels like no traction control

Ok so Im old and old fashioned. Ive ridden a bike with TC and I am clearly slow as I found it hard to actually make it kick in. Then again a couple of BSB competitors were also at the test. They, who in fairness are a bit quicker than me, both said they use barely any TC, unless riding on the roads where it is a godsend. What Im getting at is, those with the greater degree of right wrist control will always be those fastest, under normal conditions. Moto GP is no longer normal in the aspect of motorcycle riders/amatuer racers. All the bloosheet by honda about development, pfffft tc has been on road cars for 20 years plus, bikes nearly as long, I have an ecu on my 98 blade, yes road bikes have developed, but manufacturers need to understand Development is NOT why we go watch racing, we watch because we want to support and understand a man v machine v man. They are all gladiators, regardless of the crap technology argument.

MotoGP » Espargaro tops FP1 on Open Yamaha in Qatar

Joeski: PS...I got it!! it is not really a new bike...this is Lorenzo's 2012/2013 Tech 3 Yamaha does it a But the fairings give the correct illusion.. I like it...
Lorenzo didn't have a Tech 3 bike in 2012/2013... maybe you're confusing it with someone else's
lorenzo"s 2012 bike which is tecs 2013 bike
Well said that man, I got it too. In fairness first FP is likened to any other first date, could be fun way too slow and easy to forget if it doesnt go well. The second date is a watcher and the third date in order to get to ....ermm pole... is where I'll be judging who's on first base !

MotoGP » Smith secures British rookie record

@Hoppy - well said sir!!!! Bradders is never gonna set the world alight but perraps everyone forgets how Colin Edwards the worlds most likeable rider has made his money. This is a championship but also a business, dont knock the kid for being fast as fook on 2 wheels and keeping his head pragmatic......not something most of the fekwits on here could achieve thats for sure

MotoGP » Moto2: Espargaro champion, Redding taken out

Why cant people just admire 2 consistently talented fast riders rather than try and start some kinda hesaidshesaid debate. Pol is champion and deservedly so as he scored the most points, Scott was a fantastic adversary all season and was uber consistent. BOTH deserve the plaudits for making us, the fan's have a brilliant racing spectacle to watch, as do all the axe weilding unhinged boys that make Moto2 the brilliant racing it is........

MotoGP » New Motegi MotoGP schedule announced

@roadburner - world gone pc? Ermm perhaps you as a clear non GP fan may have forgotten the fate of a certain #58. It would have made no difference agreed, however if it could have done and he had died in the ambulance over an hours journey, what would we all have said? @krispradez - ''that other guy'' hahaha Ive not laughed so much for a while, a comment from a guy who doesnt recognise Loris Capirossi, priceless lol

MotoGP » Moto2: Scott Redding suffers wrist injury

@gplegend and kalex Are you 2 for real? have you actually watched, listened too or been involved in any of this moto2 season. Heck even POL said he wanted to see Scott well as it was the most fun having him racing. The development of Redding this season from an arrogant multi hair styled plonker to a serious title contender has been evident in everything that he has achieved. Gino is a talented kid and is exactly as you see him when you meet him, but surely there has to be an element of self confidence bordering on arrogance to achieve the ultimate dream, well if you look at those that have I would say so anyways...

MotoGP » Official: Pit stops for Australian MotoGP!

cont: to allow for the woeful Woodstone's inefficiency in testing the new tarmac layed before 280bhp 2 wheeled terrorists turned up to play with it.......not a great advert for Bridgestones r&d department considering they are globally renowned as the world leaders in tyre technology, or for Dunlops for that matter as this has possibly been the cause of some major off's in Moto 2 and may have contributed to #45 being unable to race.....

MotoGP » Official: Pit stops for Australian MotoGP!

@caterham Basically it means that instead of red flagging the race because of adverse weather conditions, the marshalls can wave white flags which means a rider is allowed to pit for a bike change. It was designed to keep continuity in the race should a dry race become wet, and avoid the race being stopped. This is unprecedented in GP racing as the rule states the motorcycle had to have different type tyres than the original starting machine, guessing the dorks at DOrna have amended the rule slightly.

BSB » UPDATE: Ellison wins after Lowes exclusion

@mrx Are your for real?? Respect other riders because of their experience?? Do plug yer brain in fella. Does marquez at the top of the corkscrew ''respect'' the 9 times WC? Ermm that'll be a no then. These guys respect each other for their race control and understanding. #22 cocked up no more no less, in the same way Byrne has, Foggy made a habit of and Stoner, Rossi Lorenzo and the rest have. They race bikes the lucky buggers for a living. They dont Respect much except each other THAT is Shakey to Alex and Alex to Shakey.....and all the rest down the field....As Mattio Biacco tweeted....thanks for wrecking my leathers PeterHIckman, great race see you at silverstone.........They are all bloody brilliant and I respect everyone of them for what they do, as Im sure they do each other. I think you'll find Sofuoglu punted Sam off but got no penalty, unlike Alex who punted Shakey off and did....not rocket science
