MotoGP » Marquez: MotoGP titles matter more than records


No, I havn't. but I do appreciate the skill involved with getting one of those bikes around a circuit.....fast, as I do own and race a bike. But, as it is clearly stated in your comment........ 'It's now probably 90% about the technical package the rider sits on, & maybe 10% the pilot'. The 'probably' and 'maybe' is sort of letting the FACT be known that you don't really have a clue about what's involved unless you 'look at what is freely available'...... meaning, you read a lot. So, there is my reasoned 'assumption'. I say 'assumption' as only kindergarten'ers 'argue' on forums when threatened with 'fact'. May be all the red 'disagrees' on your posts are telling you summat. :)

@TalentFan Yeah I was probably being a bit pedantic at your '10%'. But I was just getting my point across about the talent involved. I very rarely post on here due to the fact its 'Hes crap, hes crap, he dont know nothing, whys he there' etc etc etc. Its rubbish. They are all there because they are supremely talented individuals and all of them deserve the respect. Not some of the crappy comments they receive on here. Anyways.... Thatt'll be my two penneth for the forseeable. :)

MotoGP » Marquez: MotoGP titles matter more than records


But how is someone supposed to race against other racers that are not there in a series that will not allow them to race with their own preferences (ie rules)? You seem to be knocking riders of this era because of the timing of it all. Its not Marquez's fault hes racing in GPs at the age of 20 in 2014. You have gone off on a totally different tangent. But as good as Marquez is, perhaps I will join your club and doubt him along with the skill of the other riders. I don't think any of them can teleport back to the days of Rainey and Schwantz or Doohan to race them. Now how rubbish are they all???? At the end of the day. They are sill breaking lap records and are going faster and faster every year which takes bottle. Of course its to do with glory. What else do you think they are doing it for? And if you had dedicated your whole life getting to that glory, don't you think a fat pay cheque is worthy at the end of it? Or should they write off most of their lives to bike racing but get

No matter how much the GP bike is sorting itself out, at the same time, it will be creating some sort of negative to the positive it is trying to achieve. That negative will then be counter acted by the rider. The electronics may be good in this day and age. But to get them working properly, that bike needs to be ridden at 100%. And to ride one of those bikes at 100% takes a bit more skill and balls than you are willing to let on......... You have obviously seen the rider input involved when the bikes are crossed up coming down the start finish?? That is in a straight line! No more needs to be said. I did type a response for your first lot of questions but then you bombed me with loads more...... And you sort of came around by your last bombing session. Your initial post indicated that you had no idea about the skill levels involved. And tbh, yes I would like to see electronics dumbed down, or even banned.................. But, I will never take it for granted what those guys do, e

MotoGP » Marquez: Risk, reward and tyre management


TimCampbell: That's what MM does. He tries to make a show of it and to make it look like it's really a race. The Honda is so good it's not even close. If Pedrosa was a good rider we'd see MM and Pedrosa easily beat everyone. Boring season again. MM champion.
If some could only appreciate what that kid is doing on a bike. Just watching the slow motion shots is epic in itself!! Boring?? I suggest you watch other sports, or at least try and appreciate the skill and determination these guys put in.

MotoGP » PICS: Extra lever on Factory Yamaha


gixxerman March 14, 2014 9:53 AM Never mind about what the lever is,i'd be more concerned about most of these levers and brake levers have only a cable tie where the pivot bolt goes,i'm all for weight saving but jeez. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The pivot bolt is hollow and has a spring clip on the bottom. The cable tie is only there as a safeguard against the clip coming loose and it stops the pin working out if that happens. I think Chris Walker had a crash when the clip came loose on his brake lever. Cable tie / lockwire, its there as a precaution.
