MotoGP » Crutchlow's Ducati 'in a different place'


TrueFan: @Realist, @eadgbe and @BJR You kiddies need to catch up. You're as lost as Crutchlow's Ducati....From earlier in this thread... TrueFan March 24, 2014 7:40 AM
At least I had the courtesy not to take a cheap shot at your level of professional experience with such electronics that led you to make those comments. Seriously though, put on your big boy pants and admit you were wrong and we'll call it even :-)

MotoGP » Crutchlow, Dovizioso join Ducati test


sirprice1: CC needs to bend an ear of CS in Texas for a few pointers ..
Not sure how relevent it is but CS did mention that one key riding technique was to deliberately push the bike over it's limit then initate a recovery, rather than bring the bike to it's limit then wait for it to let go and react to that. The theory being it was more predicatble knowing when it was going to let go by forcing it rather than trying to react to random "loses" with little warning. All the above certainly had nothing to do with improving the bike or making it safer for other riders, but was about minimising the risk of the unexpected while extracting the most speed. Technique didn't always work though but it worked often enough to convince the world it was a good bike.

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP - Race Results


Fukkit58: Tady Okada's bike was never on the same level as the other Repsol Honda's, but it wasn't far off. But i get what you mean.
Except that one race in Jerez where one of Doohan's powervalve cables mysterously broke between the Saturday Qualifying and the morning warmup and they couldn't find any wrong before the race. Creville took the easy win and Okada was steaming past Doohan on the straight's like he was stopped. Barry Sheene's comments during the overhead shots down the straight were priceless. Fun and games even back then.

MotoGP » Crutchlow's Ducati 'in a different place'


TrueFan: ... The corner specific stuff only exists in your imagination. Sorry.... The factory bikes have GEAR specific data settings, not corner specific. ..... There is no way of the ECU knowing its track position. ..... They don't currently have any way of having corner specific settings. Full stop. Period. I'm sure I've pointed this out before.
Hey TrueFan, remember writing these words in the Honda ECU thread? Don't get so worked up over something that doesn't exist.

MotoGP » Crutchlow's Ducati 'in a different place'


bri t: Find it difficult to relate *that* level of control (ie software for a particular corner/straight of a particular circuit and bike and rider blah) applicable to real world road conditions??? :-\
With that thought in mind, why even bother with adjustable suspension that a modern roadbike comes with? Truely correct suspension settings allow you to safely utilise the most grip out of the tyres, and that's fairly unique to a given set of conditions. For 99% of road riding, adjustable suspenion is just there for changine the comfort level. 15 years a go I drove a car whose auto transmission "learned" the way you drove and began to respond accordingly. It'd be "nice" if a bike fitted with GPS learned your way to work and how you take certain corners and was integrated with a map system so it "knew" what corners were coming up.
