MotoGP » Honda, Yamaha discuss Ducati advantages

JasonLewis: I want to add, TF2 is not a troll and he has his facts straight. The guy has a lot of passion for this sport and that's a good thing. He wants to know who's really the best rider, hence is (original) handle. I just don't think Dorna makes decisions based on the Crash forum, know what I mean?
I think those of us who have been around understand and know that TF2 isn't a troll. He's a contributing member who has been consistent. Those of us who are familiar with him appreciate his insights. The caveat is that his insights come at a price...........and that price is repetition and a sullen overtone with regards to the sport. Other than that, he's an articulate and smart guy who loves the sport.

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories

Duds123: Let's take Marquez as an example, I don't think he would be as dominant or even close if he was on say Bradl's bike. Agree he would possibly be quicker than Bradl but never bagging 13 wins. How much quicker than Bradl? Mm mm! Over say a 22 lap race would he pull 12 seconds on Bradl? I don't think so. Remember these guys abilities exceed their machineries. Not like us mere mortals that never reach our bikes potential with our limited capabilities. All my opinion only. Enjoy!
I disagree. I think MM could win on Bradl's bike.

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories

therealDave: Also to the haters, If your interpretation is that past victories don't count (ie: are irrelivant) then never again shall it be highlighted that, others won on the ducati where Vale didn't others won more races in the 800 era than anyone else ammunition in the arguments about who is better than who? I mean, thats only logical isn't it?
An ABSOLUTE BRAVO to this post Dave. Well stated.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Marquez talented, brave, takes lot of risks

Brain: His style is his style. He rides the RCV just like he rode his Moto2 bike [ sideways, on one wheel , tank slapping, ass swerving ] that had zero rider aids, which leads me to believe that he is less dependent on electronics than the other riders. He has absolutely shattered the mindset that in todays electronic aided machines, you have to ride inch perfect wheels in line laps to be fast
To add to this, HRC allowed him to ride the bike the way he wanted to (even if that meant sideways action) if it meant that he could go faster. The "wheels inline" style doesn't work for him. Wasn't there another rider who tried the inline style, but it didn't work for them, so they had to ask Yamaha or HRC to allow them to ride like in Moto2? I think it was Marquez, but it might have been Pol Espargaro. Does anybody remember?

MotoGP » Smith tops MotoGP falls list

TF2: ..... Rossi's experience shows that the factory team rides the top 4 have enhances their personal performances. So it may (MAY) be that the top 4 are not be as superior to the rest of the field as you believe.
Yes and no. The Ducati is an anomaly of a bike that doesn't turn and that didn't bode wheel with VR's style of riding. When only one rider was able to ride that bike with any degree of success, you know it's an equipment issue.

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories

NineTimes: @ biaggi @ realist True... He moved to Ducati in the worst possible moment. Ducati were at their worst, especially at management level. But his move, in my opinion, has revolutionised Ducati and maybe we can argue that Ducati owe him thier future success.
I agree, and only a Rossi hater would deny that his inability to ride the red bike initiated a culture change within the company that will allow (and have allowed) their current (and future) riders to have a chance of success on the bike. Even the Honda-Yamaha-Ducati story here on almost explicit refers to that critical point in the manufacturers history.

MotoGP » Marquez: Motivation not an issue for 2015

Realist: Rewrite? Don't you mean rewrote? Equaling VR's achievements are the next target. I also agree that Marquez is in complete control of his bike. It may "look" over the top, but he's extremely comfortable on that bike. Tipping that bike deep into a corner with the rear wheel 6-7" off the ground just illustrates how confident he is in his riding ability and his package.
Uh, No! re-write verb 1. write something again so as to alter or improve it. "the songs may have to be rewritten"
Past tense...........rewrote!
