MotoGP » MotoGP 2015 v 2014: First half comparison


Joeski: All this crazy talk!! Too funny... MM is using a 2014 frame not the 2014 bike. He has no concessions as his engine allotments and sealed engines have not changed! and someone said something about 2014 tyres...wtf? where did you all come up with this stuff. FWD is using a 2013 bike...is that allowed? Tech 3 is/was using a 2014 bike..what about that? MM is using the same tyres available to all factory riders that do not qualify for OPEN/Factory 2 concessions! He is just a good rider that was struggling with his current bike/current tyre...happened to JLo last year! Happened to Rossi in 2011, 2012, and 2013...etc etc etc!!!!!!
Crazy talk it is. Where some of these people come up with this stuff is beyond me.

MotoGP » MotoGP 2015 v 2014: First half comparison


Jiri Simek: Armin, I want to believe that you are mistaken. But no doubt it is quite strange that Honda boys are allowed to change their bikes, tires and nothing happens. NO penalties, nothing. The Spanish fanatics are trying anything to keep Pscychquez in touch... But, dont you wary, they will fail anyway.... The race genius of Valentino will prevail. Yamaha just needs to keep their heads down and work, work, work...
He is mistaken, as are you. Honda didn't change their BIKE, but they did change their FRAME (..and satellite riders from T3 were all on the 2014 frame up until Pol ruined his and received a 2015 frame, so I don't really see why you guys are up in arms about using last years frame). ALL riders had access to the 2014 tires as well, so what penalties would be assessed. You guys don't pay attention.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden visits WSBK


MrBojangles: if I were Dorna and the manufactures, I'd really be thinking about who the next US riders are in GP. Annually the US sells 4-5 times the bikes that the UK does, yet the balance of riders is quite the opposite.
Sales don't matter when/if U.S. riders can't compete. Bikes will still sell without a prominent U.S. rider, as you can see... (..and we don't buy our bikes here because Hayden is in the series.....nobody is thinking about Hayden when they are buying their R6's, R1's, GSXR's, Kawi's, Ducati's and Triumphs). The problem is our infrastructure here. It's not set up to breed riders from young ages. The days of highly skilled U.S. GP riders that can regularly compete with the Europeans is over.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden visits WSBK


Jules W.: Hasn't beaten a team mate? Yes, that is the first rule. But when your team mate is an alien named Stoner than that doesn't say an awful lot. I think he held up quite well compared to Rossi, even though he did not fully agree the development path chosen by ducati and Rossi. And well yeah that 800cc honda was not really made for him, but for at the time honda's great promise.
He didn't beat Rossi on the Honda (..except for 2006). He didn't beat Stoner on the Ducati. He didn't beat Rossi on the Ducati. Pedrosa beat him in 2007, etc. All of the "made for him" stuff sounds like excuses to be honest.

MotoGP » ‘Useful’ test for Dovi, early finish for Iannone


armin899: Dovi, 2 second places and two thirds on a 5 month old bike with ZERO track time is hardly a disappointment let alone a sad one. In other hand, only a single lucky podium for many factory spec honda riders and zero podium for factory spec Yamaha's is what I call a sad disappointment.
Of his podiums this season, Dovi actually had three 2nd place finishes and one 3rd place finish.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden visits WSBK


PatrickD: since his WC win, he hasn't beaten a team mate over a season - the first rule, as we often hear. He'd be coming to WSB with alot to prove, as he seems to every year. I think he'd be a great addition to the series and pull some serious attention in the paddock, but I'm not sure the wnis would come forth. And the Honda WSB effort would be better avoided, that's for sure. He's had enough bike excuses in the last few years.
I agree with this assessment.
