MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


@TalentFan Why do you watch the races and post on Crash.net if the entire presentation is a shamble? It's the equivalent of purposely eating brussel sprouts when you hate the taste and the ingestion causes copious amounts of diarrhea. We've heard your position at least a million times (...that's not really an exaggeration), so will you at least allow us to discuss the racing without the incessant deviations, conspiracy theories, and attempts at marginalizing the racers and the series? We want to enjoy conversations here on Crash, not constantly be lambasted because we don't agree with you (...or simply don't care that much to carry on indefinitely). Or maybe you could just try and be POSITIVE for once. You're a constant downer.....Negative Nancy.

MotoGP » Rossi: I don’t regret joining Ducati


I think there was the timing issue and the failed promises issue. Like other riders, Rossi considered Ducati early on, but his assessment didn't result in any confidence that it could win races/be on the podium. When he finally made the switch, it was based on promises of a revamped bike. It took a full season to start getting updates, and it was just too little, too late (..and he is a rider with very little time left in his career). Dovi has more time to ride out that wave, but I guarantee you that he, too, will jump ship after his contract expires if GG's bike doesn't improve.

MotoGP » Redding on 2015: It’s a big decision for me


MattyMKO745: point well explained... but the chance is still there... he just need to impress HRC management like he was this year and may, just maybe someday he will get a shot on Repsol sponsored bike, even if A.Marquez and Vinales are better situated than him...
...and you're right, there is always "a chance", but Redding will be hunting for that Repsol like Crutchlow was hunting for that YFR M1. That buffalo will fail to materialize.

MotoGP » Redding on 2015: It’s a big decision for me


MattyMKO745: I really don't get it why people like biaggi think that Scott will not get Repsol bike, that other will get it... if the results next year and in 2016 are good enough, he has every possible chance to get it, nothing is impossible
It's the reality. The aforementioned riders are well ahead of Redding, and let's also consider that MM and DP will hold onto those bikes for as long as they possibly can. Redding will not usurp A.Marquez or M.Vinales. That's just the truth.

MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record


Brain:
kenfaustus:
The motogp bike with a proper setup is light years easier to ride than 600 (let alone a 1000) superstock bike - another thing is to ride it to it's limit.
And therein lies the rub. Anyone who can ride a motorcycle could putz around a race track at 1/3 throttle. on a GP bike Pushing these things to the limit takes a special talent that only a handful of people on the planet posses. I dont think the average GP fan can appreciate the forces that todays riders endure during cornering, acceleration, and especially braking. I can think of one aspect of riding a 600 superstock that would be harder than a GP bike, throttle modulation mid corner. Dealing with arm yanking acceleration and wrist snapping deceleration, along with the mental acuity involved at 215 + mph compared to 170 mph is immense. There is nothing easy about riding a GP bike on the limit.
I agree 100%!

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


Indianbear: so because doohan said it, therfore its gosple...
Not gospel, but definitely more credible than anything that anybody has to say here. It's really hard to argue for or against the merits of something that you've (speaking generally) never experienced relative to the feedback/perspective of somebody who has. I couldn't tell a doctor how to operate on a patient - having never been a doctor - any more than somebody who has never been a cop can tell me about police work. Our exposure is very limited sitting in front of a big screen or trackside. Some of us ride/race/track, so that lends A LITTLE BIT of relevant insight, but none of us are riding GP bikes, so we know nothing.
