MotoGP » Eugene Laverty: MotoGP talks with Aprilia, Suzuki, Ducati

Seems to me that Tom will take the bike by the scruff of the neck, kick it round the track and get the best from it by bullying the bike. Perhaps the will not work on a moto GP bike, though Marquez seems to be showing it little enough respect. Who knows what is going on behind the scenes contract wise. We only get the headlines. I would prefer to see Norge on a Suzuki unless Ducati are going for a complete revamp, which is a distinct possibility with Gigi.

RR » TT2014: McGuinness hopes to regroup for Senior finale

Probably under contract to show up and race. He is in a serious amount of pain with his hand though. Was riding round the paddock on a pit bike and you could see he was hurting even then. Best of luck to him. he's a gent if ever there was one, and has nothing to prove to anyone. Bruce will push MD all the way on the honda, but hard to see past MD winning it.

WSBK » Laverty: Suzuki can fight for WSBK title

Norge doesn't talk sh#te, so if he says it's good to go, it is good to go. I was plesently surprised at the pace he had in PI, but the others will be working hard to eliminate any niggles they had. Looks like it will be a close battle this year. Seems like everybody can be in the mix. All other things being equal, I still think Sykes, Laverty, and Melandri will come to the top. The cream will rise folks.

MotoGP » PICS: Extra lever on Factory Yamaha

tleaf100: what i always wanted for rear brakes,always loathed foot brakes. learnt to drive in fast rear wheel drive cars and just did the same on bikes,front brakes are only there to warm your feet up!! couple of times i rigged rear brakes to front brake lever and got threatened with being nicked!! my perfect setup would be rear brake bar right with throttle front brake on little lever like these and clutch on bar left.
Harley Ferguson rider eh?

WSBK » Lowes: I'm ready for the challenge

I'm a huge Laverty fan, and I can't wait to see both of them race, but testing is testing. Only the team know what way the bikes were set up. Full tanks,empty tanks, hard tyres, soft tyres, Traction control wound full, or no TC at all? New parts on one, old parts on the other. That's why it's called testing. There could be a world of differance in the two bikes. If they run up near the front at all in the first couple of races they will be doing well.
