MotoGP » Bautista seeking first finish of season


Codger: My post.....Just noted.....2 posters agreed with me and neither hit the 'agree' button. Agree or disagree, to me, that's how it should be done. 14 disagrees already...I love it. :)
You have to remember many people here don't disagree because of the content of a post, they disagree because of who the poster is a fan of. It is the football (socker in the US) mentality.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Sweetest third place of my career


TalentFan, not old compared to me :) I was working in bike shops in the early 70s. And raced at the same place and same day as Roberts in his short track days at Lodi Cycle Bowl. Albeit he was racing a different class than me. As for the topic, let's not forget that Lorenzo's main weapon has been taken away by BS. He is usually a cool headed racer, but at the moment he is frustrated. Changing the tires at Austin probably worked against him because the bikes have been partially redesigned for the new tire. Lorenzo (and I am not really a fan of his) will overcome and be more competitive, although the Yam at this point is IMHO no match for the Hondas.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Ninth not true reflection of our pace


The Honda does well "Flat track style" where the Yamahas have been Lorenzoized so to say. Meaning edge grip is of supreme importance. Lorenzo himself has fallen into his own trap. Now BS has compromised the edge grip, the Yamahas (at least the factory ones) are at a huge disadvantage on tracks that don't offer any grip and are dirty, Add the disadvantage to the advantage the Hondas have and the gap becomes huge.

MotoGP » Bridgestone insists tyres 'well suited'


Yet another group of bikes with premature tire wear. Fits one style of bike and rider. BS tires are junk on street bikes, always have been. Starting to think that they are the same in MotoGP. First thing you do if you buy a bike with BS tires is break in the bike with them and before you try to ride the bike hard, put decent tires on it. And of course they say they are just fine and are confused when a big percentage of them come back shredded and dangerous.

MotoGP » New challenge for Marquez, Pedrosa


Brain: Everyone seems to forget that Marquez dominated Moto2 on what many in the paddock says was an inferior bike. The Honda is a very good bike, but Marquez is the difference. He would win just the same on a Yamaha, which is very good bike as well.
The difference is that in Moto2 there were not the same caliber of riders. And lets face it, the engines were identical.

MotoGP » Kevin Schwantz: Suzuki should race now!


AussieNSW: I will say this I respect every racer that got on a GP bike and raced including Schwantz but guys he was gifted a WC when Rainey crashed if I remember right it took him the rest of the season to make up the points thats how far rainey was in front and if I remember right he walked out on his team the following year,yes I repect him as a rider but he was never in Raineys class as a matter of fact I would put him a few rungs below Rainey,its only my opinion but I would say he was average at best,but I will say this he has done a great job in getting GP racing to Texas so credit to him for that.
I beg to differ. I watched Schawntz and Rainey race through the AMA Superbike and on more equal bikes Schwantz would just destroy Rainey. The problem with Schwantz is he would throw it away and Rainey kept a cool head and brought home the points. I was there at Sears Point when Schwantz won the race and waited at the finish line to see if Rainey came in 6th or
