MotoGP » HRC: 1000cc only unleashed in 5th and 6th gears


good knowledgeable last few comments. but still some guys thinking if there was no TC rossi will win. motogp is supposed to be the pinnacle of technology in motorcycle racing. no matter what engine displacement and configuration they will still surpass the previous best performances within a few years in terms of speed and horsepower.Street bikes have tc but u think motogp shouldn't because apparently u guys think that tc came out of nowhere in 2007 and helped casey win the title that year. rossi was one of the first riders to use it. it has steadily improved over the years and eventually in a few years we will be able to get the same package off the showroom floor. Bautistas 250 had TC on it. Kallio's KTM had Kers(hybrid technology)TC is here to stay, and i bet that seamless trans will be on road bikes in a few years as well.

MotoGP » Team stability key for Ben Spies


@motojunky you said the yamahas and hondas will have a glitch and ducati will have the advantage?!?!?!? Are you serious bro? At least they are working with a proven design they are familiar with and built themselves and have already paced the tests on by the way. The ducati has no referrence data whatsoever other than Carlos Checa and its an FTR. They didn't even build it! So will they have a guy like the Ohlins guy there to setup the bike for Rossi and they already have a performance cushion? Good luck with that prediction. I admire your loyalty to Rossi, but this is a Ben Spies thread and no, the ducatis won't beat casey,jorge,dani or ben and they will have their hands full with crutchlow bautista and dovi probably finishing in front of them regularly.

MotoGP » Why the MotoGP weight limit changed


@minimalist Michelin had a contract with Yamaha to provide the factory team with tires They were promised their factory teams by Dorna. Rossi wanted Casey's bridgestone tires, guess what happened, domino effect then pedrosa who had Nakano test them on his gresini bike with factory kit so they could have data for him then switched mid season then next thing you know bridgestone is the spec tire supplier. Rossi has pull because he is the Dorna media darling. They did suffer due to his injury in 2010 and even more since the titanic left port bound for new york(switch to ducati, 80 seconds) So I am agreeing when you guys say that Rossi has more marketability than Jorge Casey and Dani,Rossi is the face of motogp at the moment, but smiling and doing wheelies or riding around with a giant chicken is not being the best racer.Carmelo sees Rossi as the goose that laid the golden eggs. So like the banks and insurance companies that caused the financial crisis.They cannot afford to have him fail.a

2006! 2007! 2010! 2011!until infinity the years to come will have something similar in the outcome no matter how many rules get changed at the last minute. HRC will redesign the chassis to incorporate the weight.So if you misinterpret the vote does it stand as a rule or not. How can it be misinterpreted at all? there are only like 5 voters not thousands or millions!!Sounds like the oil companies trying to explain why gas prices can't be any cheaper despite the obvious fact that they can.

MotoGP » Why the MotoGP weight limit changed


@ninja Tha answer is never. Pedrosa(, collarbones, hand fingers ankles) Stoner(blocked from joining yamaha in 2006, scaphoid, the injury that ended kevin schwantz's career, illness) Lorenzo(ankles both at the same time actually, collarbones, leg, hand, detuned satellite bike, michn tires, no data sharing) all had injuries the years they were on the 800s when Rossi won and he tried everything to prevent JLo getting equal equipment, only Rossi can set up a bike in 80 seconds so the wall was put up and the youngster kept on winning in spite of no sharing, LOL! does that tarnish his titles the way you infer to tarnish the titles of Stoner and JLo? We know why the rules changed after the bike was built, don't we? EDIT by CRASH.NET: Please, no hijacking.

@ninja JLo was leading the championship after winning all but Qatar going into Mugello when Rossi broke his leg.So i guess you will say he only won because Rossi was hurt. Why do you think Rossi was trying so hard? LOL, by the way, i have a much better question for you. When did Rossi beat an uninjured Jlo on equal equipment in a motogp season?

MotoGP » Why the MotoGP weight limit changed


it makes victory all the more sweet when they keep trying to change rules to suit certain individuals and that person still loses. Looking forward to seeing Casey and Jorge and Dani and Ben getting it on this season and that other guy disappearing into obscurity whilst desperately trying to remain in the spotlight at all costs. Simoncelli wasn't a race winner nor consistent but I see the Rossi connection he had and the fact that he is now deceased gets a lot of comments about how he was going to do this or that and its just not justified guys. You guys hated Hayden because he beat Rossi to the title and were falling over yourselves when he did not adjust well to the 800cc, then hated Casey for beating Rossi on a faster bike, then hated Jorge for truly beating Rossi head to head on the same bike, how dare he! and then Casey again. The complaint is they need a new bike chassis now or hanging ballast in different places changes the handling and performance of the bike. This was never abou

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi has metalwork removed


That break was a nasty one. Not a supporter of his but an overall fan of the sport and if you read my posts you may think that I hate Rossi. I don't. I don't like his blocking teammates and others access to equipment. I hate the rubbish spewed by his blind faithful. I wouldn't wish that injury on anyone. Hopefully not too much recovery time will be necessary and he will be back to 100% quickly. Then the gloves can come off and we will see if his new bike gets him close to Lorenzo and Casey. Hate it if excuses fly so I will sit and wait for the outcome. This isn't one in the tank for you guys if its between casey jorge and dani(and occassionally Spies).The FTR is a step in the right direction and will definitely be easier to ride.
