MotoGP » Stoner to continue Honda MotoGP tests

HairPlugsHamilton: All the haters on here claiming stoner was never any good are full of crap, the best modern area riders are easily M.Marquez,Rossi,Stoner and Lorenzo :)
Stoner WAS very were many that came before him. Could he manage to ride at the level required to compete with the mentioned riders and avoid injury or mental breakdown? I have my doubts, but we'll probably never know for sure.

MotoGP » Stoner to continue Honda MotoGP tests

AyrtonSenna: Guaranteed you could put all the current crop of riders on his bike and they would still fail against him. He is a racer par excellence and makes the honda look better than it really is.
Confidence is a huge factor in motorcycle racing. The confidence marquez inherently had after switching from the 600 to proto bike I feel was greater than what any of the 250 riders had. Being on the factory Honda proto acknowledged as the best supported machine in existence would have increased that confidence and then winning on that bike increasing the confidence even more. If or when Marquez loses this confidence or another rider inherits the same advantages we'll see better exactly how good Marquez really is. Marquez might be the best but he's also the first to inherit those particular advantages so hard to make a guarantee I think.

MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'

I'd just like to say shamarone's views on this topic are frankly embarrassing to a fellow American. He seems the type that would sell his mother if he could find a buyer. We already pay a premium for tv access to sports/motorcycle racing coverage in this country, min. $120 where I'm at. In return we have to put up with the current provider fox diluting the coverage so much that half the race is missed due to advertisements. Not only do we miss the racing while away at commercial breaks, which is nothing new, but now with the added b/s cut away before and after the commercials so the fox guy can tell us his opinion while the camera shows stills of the riders faces and which position they are currently in or pictures of pit lane or trees, birds etc. while we could actually be watching THE RACING!! The fact that we are forced to miss the action because it's more important to have auto insurance adverts and fox sports adverts on the screen instead tells the story of who's interests th

MotoGP » ‘Agreed principles’ for 2016 MotoGP ECU

separated: @ Codger NONE of the bikes would work without what you call "aids". The fact is that the electronic systems are integral to the philosophy and design of the current bikes as much as the swingarms are. Let's stop the rose-tinted idealism and deal with the realities.
ALL of the the bikes would work. Dial in the mapping and chassis to control the "hit" and they'd still be the fastest road racing bikes on earth. They wouldn't be as efficient as they are now from point A-B but they'd be faster than a sbk sans electronics...guaranteed. After all they are prototypes built by the smartest motorcycle minds around. It's still just an air pump powering a couple round rubber thingies...not rocket science dude.

MotoGP » Stoner to continue Honda MotoGP tests

NineTimes But, I wonder why Honda keep hiring him!! .
Do you really wonder why a company would hire one of the top 2 riders in the world as a test rider. Well lets just see here. He has been testing for 2 years and Marquez has won 2 straight titles. Im going to go out on a limb and say the reason they keep hiring him is they are very happy with the results
More drivel. Stoner wasn't even able to crack the top 20 the past couple of years. Fishing must be slow this time of year.
