MotoGP » Nakamoto: Racing is in Honda’s DNA


AussieNSW: Does any of you guys notice the photo above with all the Honda guy's in it yet the rider that won most races for them is not in the photo and he rode in the same race,not a good look for Honda in my opinion.
The guy sin the photo are holding up 7 fingers, so I'm betting it's the 7 consecutive wins for MM and not the 100 wins for Honda they're happy with in that photo. Dani didn't need to be in it....

MotoGP » Nakamoto: Racing is in Honda’s DNA


TrueFan:
V4Poweeeer: ...
cont... JB ensured that Doohan's bike was behaving better by the mid-90s.
In Doohan's book he mentions having a blow up with JB and Honda and put it bluntly to them that the Yamaha street bikes handle better than their Honda Race bike AND that they have brakes that work. So JB needed a little nudge at the time but as history shows they did sort it out. Doohan had raced Yamaha superbikes domestically, and had signed for Suzuki for the GP's before getting out of that and going with Honda.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Top speed not the solution


TrueFan:... Ironically, when Ducati dominated WSBK, it was with less powerful bikes (916/996/998) that had higher mid-corner speed...
With the Japanese manufacturers stuck at 750cc ??? Colin Edwards and Honda showed WSBK what they could do playing Ducati's game by Ducati's rules forcing the organisers hand to allow some return to capacity parity for the 4-cyclinder machines even if they had to run restrictor plates...

MotoGP » Riders want lighter MotoGP bikes


Cryogeneric: Arm pump is problematic but wont be solved by reducing weights. Furthermore, I think the author of this piece hit the nail on the head...a lower limit will prompt the use of more expensive weight-saving materials. I say leave it alone.
You mean that 4kg of lead that Honda had to add a few years back was expensive?? The bikes used to be 130kg with nothing fancy except carbon disks, now they're about 168kg. That's 38 extra kg in what, fourstroke bits and electronics? FCUK a whole Honda 2kw generator with fuel is only about 20kg

MotoGP » Marquez wary of weather, rivals heading to Le Mans


Insidejob: " Max Biaggi 5 times WC started racing at 18. Bayliss didn’t begin road racing until he was 23, making him a very late starter in a sport where most current riders have been on minibikes on tarmac tracks in their very early years.
None of them have raced against the current crop of young starters or won a WC for that matter. Stoner started Road at about 14-15 but there were the 10+ years on dirt before that. Doohan, was probably the last of the "natural" talents to achieve real success in MotoGP. Criville, Roberts jr. and so on have all pretty much started their path to MotoGP very early in life. Biaggi was good and he did stick it to Doohan, but he needed more. I'm not saying that the natural talent isn't there and that it's all just down to opportunity, but you need both.
