MotoGP » Agostini: Five moments I remember most


Tomco: Ago was a true great. One of the best ever. He didnt just win on MV but moved over to 2 strokes and won on them too. He was also bloody quick rount the TT. Yes he had good bikes but was as fast as anyone else on equal machinery or faster and rarely fell off.
for most of his career the only one on equal machinery was his team mate who wasn't allowed to beat ago, his years where he won the bulk of his titles most others were on out dated nortons, as all the japs pulled out in 67 . yes he was good but the 15 world titles makes him look better than he really was. the guy that is the true best, is Angel Nieto who won 13 titles in the ultra competitive 50,80 and 125cc classes

BSB » Be Wiser Kawasaki withdraws from rest of BSB season


RDix: I don't know all the technical differences between motoamerica/AMA superbike rules and BSB but there's teams running the entire AMA schedule for less than $65,000.
if you want to win though, your going to have to get the top kit, its not just about being able to compete. I doubt $65k would get you a bike that could run in the top ten in BSB for a season. your talking 3k+ just for a swingarm and between 3-5k for the suspension that's before you tune the engine and other race kit

BSB » Be Wiser Kawasaki withdraws from rest of BSB season


just to clarify though, Be wiser are not one of the sponsors not paying, they have sent a statement that they have paid all there money on time and have actually paid more then they were contracted too do . In a terse statement released by team sponsors Be Wiser, marketing director Andrew Dunkerley said that they were too at a loss to explain the team's withdrawal. "We were absolutely astonished to hear the news and extremely disappointed. As title sponsor we made all sponsorship payments on time and indeed exceeded our agreed level of contributions. We are at a loss to understand why AP Kawasaki Limited are unable to fulfil their obligations for the remaining two rounds of the BSB series."

MotoGP » Smith: It's been a positive start


DutchPorridgewog:
Tomco: BS becoming a pretty consistent top 5 runner these days. Methodical and fast. Good for him I say. Doesnt spout crap about who hes going to beat either. I imagine Tech3 are pretty pleased that hes with them next season.
If Tech3 are pleased, why are they giving Pol all the preferential treatment? OK, so Pol's contracted to Yamaha not Tech3, but they(Yamaha) need to see that despite throwing everything @Pol, he's being thoroughly outclassed by Bradley on supposedly inferior equipment. Just think what Brad could do with full Yamaha support!
because they have to, he has the factory contract so get the parts first

MotoGP » Tardozzi: Redding's '16 Ducati close to 'Factory'


SendingOutOfSpace:
SoSlo: nobody was racing Marc in Moto2
true marqs bike was so freaky fast i remember his bike blast past the others on the straight. also his machine had something with the ecu..... better engine better ecu
marc's bike was actually slower that pols and a few other bikes in a straight line, when you looked at the speed traps, its just he got out the corner faster, meaning he got to his bikes top speed sooner. he couldn't have a better engine, they are picked from a line of engines and you only keep that engine for 3 races then you gave it back and picked another. as ever there are a lot of myth and bull**** going about, to try and answer why he was so fast. but now in the top class we can see why he was well above the rest. he was just that good.
