BSB » Honda Racing retains Linfoot, O'Halloran, Tinmouth

Given your comment I'm assuming you have never raced a bike? Done some track days? Well if you have the fastest of the fastest group are probably at best mid pack at club race level. Jenny would thrash most front running club racers. BSB is a different league. Faster than Jenny? Go for it. If you do you might just realise how quick she is. Faster riders available for that ride? Almost certainly, but anyone who can put lap times in like her is proper quick.

BSB » Honda Racing retains Linfoot, O'Halloran, Tinmouth

Abefan: Has anyone here heard of the phrase " Public relations"? Do you think possibly Honda know more about selling motorbikes ( even wee girly ones, tongue in cheek) than people on here? Check to see how many days Jenny did at Honda dealerships. Pedro has had twelve years on the best bike in motogp and hasn't been champ. Is the same bitching applies to him? ( actually by me it is but that's another story). If she is riding the same spec bike as Dan and ohalloran I'll eat a caravan.
Well said. Given it is a three bike team then arguably no-one is missing out on a full on superbike ride, because no doubt there aren't three superbikes in that team.

BSB » Honda Racing retains Linfoot, O'Halloran, Tinmouth

Braap: @SmokinHaddock Nobody's slagging Jenny off. By normal standards she's super fast, she's shown dedication and commitment to the sport and seems a thoroughly decent person. The problem is that previously her bike was always an unknown but when she got the ride with Honda, that excuse went away. As it stands she is consistently at the back of the field on an official bike. There are always mitigating factors (crew, electronics etc etc) but always being at the back on that bike isn't really what anyone is after. If I were Havier Beltram I would be asking for a little more.
Don't disgaree with you. It was just putting right the suggestion that a track day rider could get anywhere near any BSB rider. Some of these folks should try lining up on a grid with a natonal rider. You soon learn what talent and commitment is!

MotoGP » Official: Casey Stoner returns to Ducati

Codger: Hindsight is magical. The lad gave at least 10 hard reasons on why he left MotoGP, and has forgotten them all. ( for those who have forgotten those reasons as well, check them out. If memory serves it was around 10 days after he flatly denied that he was contemplating retirement. )
He hasn't returned to GPs. He has signed as a test rider. Probably get paid a shed load for having fun on a GP bike. No brainer really, just like going to spend time with his young family was also a smart move.

MotoGP » Smith gets answers on 2016 Tech 3 Yamaha debut

Lancsmann: Yamaha must have talked to VR and JL about what would keep the satallite bikes behind them. Its obviously the corner entry with the down shifting seamless box. He will never have the bike to win at this level unless the weather conditions play ball.
There speaks common sense. Those who think the Tech3 bikes are competetive with the factory bikes should take note.

MotoGP » Smith seeking ‘super’ sixth in championship

Rayzerp2: Great consistent performances this year totally dominating his factory supported teammate. Solid consistent results all year but I struggle to remember one occasion where he showed any glimpse of the raw pace needed to be a front runner. Can't see him ever winning a Moto gp race on pure pace but a safe pair of hands for 6th place....if that floats your boat
Bradley's bike is nowhere near the spec as the works M1s and has had no development all season (it's the bike Yamaha finished 2014 with). Despite this, he still finishes 4th at the last GP in the dry, with only a Repsol Honda and both works M1s ahead of him and you still doubt his pace? Just watch how fast Bradley will be on the 2015 M1 in the post Valencia test...mark my words.
If I recall correctly he was very quick at the end of season test last year (on the factory bike), which demonstrated the difference between the bikes.

MotoGP » Lorenzo denies title 'pact' with Marquez

HansieMGP: E.g. Ben Spies, Josh Brookes, Jeremy McWilliams have anylysed PI & Sepang and they are sure Marquez was playing in both those races, and indirectly helping Lorenzo by holding up Rossi to get near Lorenzo...
The last two races have clearly shown a change in the nature of MotoGP races. We all love bikes because of the excitement of regular overtaking. What we rarely see is that much overtaking! Another factor has to be have been thrown in to cause so many overtakes. That factor appears to MM playing with VR.

MotoGP » Luckless Iannone not giving up on fourth

WOT48: Question for Ianone: WTF were you doing helping Lorenzo in Philip Island by came in in third. You're f* out of the championship!
Oh my god. Please be kidding?
Well, according to many (including some certain riders) you are not allowed to race Rossi if he is chasing his championship rival.
Iannone was racing Rossi. MM wasn't racing, he was playing. Big difference. iannone has really matured this season. Hope his bike is up to it next year, because if it is we will be watching some great battles.
