SasquatchBob:
TalentFan:
it sounds exactly like club racing

After reading through your posts, at length, something strikes me. You appear to come up with a theory or a concept and then accept it as solid fact and nothing will shift your opinion because, to you it's absolutely empirical fact. My youngest daughter does the exact same thing. [\blockquote He is convinced that he is smarter and better equipped to run not only Moto GP, but the Honda Corporation as well, Guy Coulon, Nakamoto, Doohan and countless others knowledge of the sport is dismissed with a wave of the hand The more he is proven wrong, the frequency and length of his diatribes increases exponentially. He is trying to smother everyone in bull ----- so they will forget just how bass ackwards he his on so many subjects.

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


kenfaustus:
Brain: .
Were are your Brain (less)? Out hiding? Guess Lorenzo "is on the down side of his career" - has not won a single race this season is his teammate is kicking his fine ash.
As that was a proper win, i was going to let the fan boys revel, but since you insist. 1 win, and i must add, a good win, in front of the hometown folks and all, but its still just 1 win. Lets see how he does the rest of the season. As i have been saying, the bikes are as close as they are going to get, and its up to the rider, Today Rossi was the faster rider, lets see if he has it in him to string a few together. Thats the difference between being in your prime and on the down side . A blind hog finds an acorn every once in a while.

TalentFan: There's been a weight handicap system in place for horse racing for decades But a bigger & heavier guy IS seriously disadvantaged with a fuel restriction. So the best all-around answer to even it up so a big guy can fairly race a small guy on talent (assuming laughably all other things being equal) seems to me to allocate fuel based upon weight. Let a heavier guy have proportionately more fuel to accelerate his mass at the same rate and consumption as a lighter guy. If there's a better solution I've not heard it yet.
Then the heavier guy would bitch that the weight of the extra fuel was killing him in the early laps. The game of positioning yourself for rules exceptions is never ending in series like this. I say leave it alone. If you are to big for GP, sorry., thats life.. Like i said, its a small mans game, if you choose to participate, you make due with what you are born with, not penalize someone else. Horse racing and bike racing is no

MotoGP » Marquez: Time to change mentality


BrazilDUluwita:
AyrtonSenna: .
@AyrtonSenna: In the past you said Vale" will never win a race again ". Which meant till he leaves MotoGP. This win of today is RIGHT BACK AT YOU. Don't utter things just because of you could. It makes you look and sound like a ...... . You know what I meant in the blank space. I was waiting for this day to give it back to you. I saved your post so that I shall never forget your ID. And I replied to your post saying .... " when the day comes I shall get at you. This is for you and eat it... . Today I found your ID. Yesterday I was looking for your ID, yet I couldn't' find it. This is for you.... and what a hater you are with no sportsmanship. Go ahead and make your self a ........ again, and say it again, that Vale Will never win a race again. C'mon say it ....... . You once said it go on say it again. You wi
Creepy, obsess much ?

[blockquote I see no fair solution to it. The nearest that I can get is a minimum bike+rider weight limit and the littlies wear a weighted belt. I don't see that as fair but then neither is adding ballast to the bikes. After all where would you place it to compensate for the bigger lads weight which is mostly above the bike anyway ? Seriously, you want to add a 20-30 pound vest to Dani. Where does it stop. What if some dude that weighed 200 pounds somehow got into the series would you want Dani to wear a 90 pound vest. Anything you do to the little guy is a penalty for being small in a small mans sport. Put the onus of cutting weight on the team with the heavier rider

Insidejob: .... Now, with the extra weight on my bike, the balance went too much in the wrong way and the heavy riders have more of an advantage comparing to the light ones as they have a lighter bike to ride on and us we have more weight on the bike. It's not fair but we have to live with it.
Just like i said, putting affixed weight to a bike is punishing the smaller rider. Make the teams with heavier riders lighten their bikes, not add weight to the little guys bike. It screws up the geometry.

kma55: Should be minimum weight bike+rider combined, so that the bigger guys have equal power to weight ratio to the midgets.
Then you are punishing the smaller rider by forcing affixed weight to a bike which screws up there geometry. F1 and other car drivers do not move around the cockpit of a car to try and balance the geometry, bike racers do. If they want to have a minimum bike rider weight, it should be up to the heavier rider and their teams to endure the cost of shaving weight off their bikes, not adding weight to someone else's.

MotoGP » Second row Marquez 'struggling' with Honda set-up

VKal:
the honda and yamaha are close but not in the same area. The favoured track has been mentioned for years by riders and expert commentators. are you saying that they are wrong?
In the past, there were tracks that favored one mfg over the other, but if you look at the last few years, it has not held up. Lorenzo won on numerous tracks that were supposed to be Honda tracks, and Marquez has won on numerous tracks that were supposed to be Yamaha tracks. The bikes are so close in performance now, its down to 4-5 degrees of track temperature that can make the difference in winning.

MotoGP » Second row Marquez 'struggling' with Honda set-up


VKal: Not sure about able to use Q2 to do fine tuning for race prep and not prioritising getting pole. Usually use different tyres and setting for QF. Warm up would be more useful. Honda manage to get better at Yamaha favoured tracks but what happen here? I still expect this guy fighting for a win, come race day.
Starting on pole doesnt mean as much to him as most since he has the skills to get by slower riders . He does not get hung up behind a slower rider for very long. Some riders throw away half a race waiting for a safe pass, then complain that they got held up Marquez will wait about half a lap. These 4 bikes are so close in performance, there is no Yamaha or Honda tracks, its up to the riders who wins.
