RR » TT 2015: Dunlop ditches Yamaha for BMW!


Short-sighted decision. Could be the bike to beat next year and Yammy won't want him now. And after all the grief Milwaukee had with the new regs, they must've made a LOT of effort to get to the TT. Every Yam I've owned had a bit of oil in the airbox, including current one. Crankcase breather straight into carb side of air filter - I'm interested to know what the solution is!

MotoGP » Pedrosa: ‘I cannot continue racing this way’


bringBACKthe990s:
SuperSic: I've always thought that the "jockey" style riders got these arm pump issues due to a lack of muscle mass. This backs up my theory. The guy is a damn fast racer, and has been a credit to Honda for many years now, but i'm surprised he had his contract renewed in 2013, and I think it's his time to move on.
You are 100% correct in your theory. If Dani puts on some weight he'd be fine. But then he'd lose a massive advantage. And he wouldnt perform as good. Bike setup would change a lot. We'd see the "real Dani" so to speak. Honestly, I think he could be just as good. I think he's just taken the weight cutting too far. Typical of hyper competitive athletes.
Errrr - I'm the same height & weight as Dani - trust me, putting weight on is just as hard for some as it is to lose for others. More weight would help DP wrestle the most aggressive GP bike that is Honda. I don't think he's trying to lose / maintain weig

MotoGP » Drive M7 departs Aspar


Abefan: If the ****hole directors at each round gave a bit of camera time to all participates whilst still focussing on the battles ( and by that I don't mean mm riding around on his own) then maybe sponsors would feel like they can still get a TV return on their investment.
Well said! Dorna doubled the amount of bikes on the grid and we still only see the top 4 & occasionally 5th-10th if we're lucky!!!!
