MotoGP » ‘Agreed principles’ for 2016 MotoGP ECU

Id say that depends on what you are calling aides. Can the bikes be ridden without traction control, wheelie control, yaw control (or measurement), or adjustable engine maps? Yes they can, they would not be as easy to ride, and wouldn't be as fast (they would almost certainly have to use "softer" mapping to make them rideable. Could they be ridden without accurate mapping for the fuel injection system? No they couldn't, as this is needed just to let them run. As I said it depends on your definition of a riding aide, id love to see them get rid of the former!

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain

Maybe they could show a different coloured flag, something more obviously visible in lower light conditions. Then everyone could come in at the end of that lap. Then in order to prevent chaos in the pits with bikes arriving and leaving at the same time the bikes could stay there, and then be returned to the grid in the order they were when the flag was shown after a short delay to see if the weather was going to improve or get worse? I cant get my head around his 2 laps idea, surely if you are arguing from a safety standpoint then I would be an immediate entry to the the pits, unless he is thinking that in those 2 laps the weather might improve, but then what, do they pit the flag away and if you haven't pitted you don't have to?

MotoGP » Marquez: New Honda needs change of direction

Apropro to nothing but, I think mark will eventually leave Honda, possibly for much the same reason they lost Rossi, the manufacturer believeing they are the reason for the championships not the rider. I think it will be post 2016( obviously hes contracted til then) but if the hoped for (by me) reduction in tc, yaw control etc leads to a place where throttle control becomes key again and mistakes are punished harshly (by the bike) he may come up against the same issues as Rossi, but I am just guessing.

MotoGP » Moto3: Jack Miller wins, Alex Marquez champion

Bikenut, you may have misunderstood, I was referring to what a little **** he appears to be, the man who deserved the championship was the guy who won the championship. Pity miller behaves the way he does, his riding (when not flat out dirty) is great, just needs to lose the attitude/ entitlement issues, still I can think of a few people who might knock that out of him next year. Roll on 2015!
