RR » Michael Dunlop to ride factory Yamaha in 2015


windyman: Micky d has the riding ability, we all know that, but look at the specs . of the new ri.it has a very short wheelbase and steep steering angle plus a lot of power, not the best combination for bumpy road circuits.yamaha themselves are touting the bike as a road going m 1 (quick steering, not too stable at high speed) and as the options for modification are limited under the rules, I think they may have problems with this bike. The old R1 had big handling problems on fast road circuits, (ask conor and william!) And this bike is even more radical.
Windyman, you appear to know a lot on the technical side of the new R1 and I am not all that technical hence my earlier posting I talked about the package that would be brought to assist Mickey D to win the two big ones at the TT. I have doubts about the overall package required, but, no better man than in Mickey D to ride it. A lot of testing needs to be done and a few of real road races would be of assist
