MotoGP » How big is too big for MotoGP?

@brain I don't believe your ideology in regards to to this subject would be so unflinching but your distain for Rossi and his fans has painted you into a corner. You don't really care about whether or not Redding, Baz, Camier, or anybody else gets a fair shot in this class you just don't ever want to admit that Rossi has been disadvantaged by his size while becoming the greatest rider in history. These bikes should be configured for the average sized human and sorted with ballast when outside the range..simple. Its even easier to just say "that's life" and ignore it tho.

MotoGP » How big is too big for MotoGP?

Brain: No one said size didnt matter, they simply said your size is your problem, deal with it, and quit trying to penalize others because you are to big to participate in certain arena's .
"Deal with it" "that's life". Ok bro just sit back while the rest of the world strives for justice and equality. None of these guys are "too big" but they are definitely being penalized. I think most want to see displayed from motor racing the mechanical technology and the operator skill. These things can't be measured when basic factors like weight aren't equalized. There needs to be set a weight limit that accommodates the average sized rider and have ballast added or removed for riders outside of the range. Simple really..stop fighting the obvious. Makes me wonder if how successful stoner, pedrosa, lorenzo, etc would be at Rossi's size?

Insidejob: Here are the experts opinions on rider weight and size.
So I checked the first article even tho it wasn't written by an "expert" as you say. All he did was compare the performance of the riders at that given time. Rossi always had good results duh. Any factory Honda rider has had an advantage compared to others in the field(Hayden) and on and on. We can't just assume that because they've had good results that they weren't fighting a weight disadvantage. This issue isn't about current results or opinions it's about science and the science is clear. I don't think Pedrosa or Stoner won the races they did because of a weight advantage but it definitely didn't hurt their efforts.

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'

TrueFan: Reading how breathtakingly, spectacularly, unimaginably stunning Valentino's victory was in the fanboy comments is pretty entertaining.
Equally entertaining is the the stoner fanboys going on about how great he was on the Ducati even tho at the end of his time there he crashed far more than he won. Rossi has never been a crasher like Stoner so it's not so unusual that he didn't try as hard as Stoner to make that crap bike a winner. Valentino Rossi can certainly be considered by even the casual observers as the greatest rider this sport has ever seen. Casey Stoner will never be considered as such by anybody except his fanboys. Stoner is gone so let's all keep it real!

MotoGP » MotoGP weight changes, software freeze

Absolutely should implement min weight as rider/bike combined. Surely adding ballast to the bottom of the bike is more ideal than where the weight is located for the bigger riders. As far as which rider I'd prefer Pedrosa or Simoncelli(rip) it's not even a contest..Pedrosa all the way. Dani Pedrosa although not a champion in the big class has a staggering amount of wins and is one of the most successful riders the sport has ever seen. Far more wins across all classes than most GP champions. Being lightweight definitely hasn't hurt Dani's performance. 61 fastest laps 45 pole positions 134 podiums 49 wins 3 world championships
