MotoGP » Rossi revels in old school MotoGP thrills


All the people who have been complaining about no action, boring racing, and still when we get a really decent battle, the haters just have to try to spoil it for everyone. The race had me on the edge of my seat for the first time in a long time. What is also funny is the fact that MM and VR were very, very, aggressive and the usual suspects aren't standing on their soap box and complaining. And instead of whining about aggressive racing the protagonists are asking for more. I still think the major difference is the new crew chief.

MotoGP » Bridgestone: Positive debut for 2014 MotoGP tyres


I think Lorenzo crashed because one of his most effective weapons is to squirt out in front on the opening laps and create a buffer. The track conditions, new tire construction, cold tires, and over eagerness to get away were a matter of the stars just not lining up. And probably a bit of frustration knowing that his most trusted weapon (high corner speeds and lean angles) had been compromised.

MotoGP » Crutchlow's Ducati 'in a different place'


I'm sorry but what happened is unacceptable. I write firmware for a living. In an industry that one little mistake can cost millions. There probably is no one here that hasn't used a machine with one of my inventions in it. That being said, the software should have a manual reset that the rider can hit as he crosses the start/finish. The ECU would then go to a fail safe mode if it didn't get a transponder signal that was close to the reset point. Then they could have at least used distance, braking, lean, etc to get a handle on exactly where they were on the track. Rant over.

MotoGP » PICS: Extra lever on Factory Yamaha


liltonbeat: Neutral interlock. You want neutral (now at the top of the sequence N 1 2 3 4 5 6) you pull in the clutch and also the interlock lever with index finger. Same shift pattern as my YL1...
My first bike was a YL1E. I am looking for another one to restore. Coolest bike of the era. That is a neutral interlock. No guessing, just ratchet the shifter with no chance of hitting neutral. Putting neutral between gears on a seamless gearbox just adds complication to an already fragile and complicated system. This simply puts a lock on the shift drum to prevent it from rotating into neutral.
