MotoGP » Moto2: Brough Superior to wild-card at Silverstone

Lancsman: Its not a Brough superior really is it? Its a modern bike with a jap engine and an old name. It means nothing, just like Norton at the TT with its aprilla engine. It will be all over priced b***ocks.
the original bikes used jap engines
errr... they were made by J A Prestwich of Tottenham (JAP), not any Japanese company.

MotoGP » Bautista: ‘Nothing is clear’ for 2015

@Zambooni Not sarcastic - it could be a very good plan. Bautista strikes me as a very good mid-class rider but not quite at a consistent motogp level. A move to moto2 may be the best option if Suzuki say no. In a way he reminds me of Kallio. Mika was great on a 250, had 2 years in motogp and was not that impressive and now back in the mid class he's doing very well. There's no shame in being a top moto2 rider.

MotoGP » Repsol, Honda extend MotoGP partnership

"Half of the 500cc/MotoGP World Championship titles won in the past 20 years have gone to Repsol Honda " And the usual drones will bang on about Spanish bias... but wait! "thanks to Mick Doohan (1995-1998) - Australian, Alex Criville (1999) - Spanish, Valentino Rossi (2002-2003) - Italian, Nicky Hayden (2006) - American, Casey Stoner (2011) - Australian and Marquez (2013) - Spanish." Only 2 out of 10 there.

MotoGP » Pits to victory for Marquez in Germany

TalentFan: Over 100 posts and only Codger on page 7 make the really important observation. That is that the top 4 super-computers (oh sorry - for you sensitive sheeple that'll be motorcycles) breezed through the field like the rest were on commuter bikes. Never mind MM, or Vale etc. THAT is the vitally important bit that most fans miss completely in their headlong rush to be to first to ram their heads up a top 4 riders crevice. Those who (even for totally the wrong reasons) get all defensive about MotoGP never delivering a boring race are a tuly correct. Because it's a travesty to even hint that it might be Racing. But it seems there are masses dumb enough for that not to be important. Don't worry Brain, Realist (and others with similarly hugely ironic usernames).. I'm not hanging around. There's no point.
Bye then. Don't forget to take the professor with you.

MotoGP » Rate the 2014 German MotoGP!

Insidejob: "got a strange feeling honda does some from the pit to dani's bike!" Marc went wide and Danny followed him but went even wider. But hey you could be right. Maybe the bikes are radio controlled from the pits and the riders are just actors sitting on them.
Its the Bridgestone radio controlled tyres. They just press a button and the tread turns to jelly.

MotoGP » Riders want changes after ‘dangerous’ pit start

mrfill: Two white lines, 5 metres long, 50cm apart, parallel to the track at pit lane exit. If your bike's tyres are not within the lines you get a drive through penalty Far too simple.
Pit lane is wet, but the circuit is dry. The riders pit for dry tyres. The riders in pit do a race start and steam of toward turn one and they've got 50cm of room until they hit a white line and get fired over the highside. Genius.
If riders in a pit lane exceed a given speed they are penalised. Getting a bike between 2 lines at 60kph (or whatever the pit lane speed limit is at the track) is learner stuff. Once past these 'railway lines' they are on part of the track, not the pit lane. If they cross either of the parallel lines then they get penalised. You could call it an artificial chicane designed to create a single file at pit lane speed. I've not yet seen a motogp rider have a high side at 60kph.
