WSBK » Leon Haslam signs for Red Devils Aprilia


papcicles:
Fullofit: The RSV4 will be nowhere under next years regulations.
Sounds a bit extreme. They may lose some hp, other brands may improve (e.g. what is the fireblade going to do), but I don't think the changes will be more than marginal because the RSV is not a one-trick pony. I have a good feeling about Haslam, I don't think he should be written-off yet (even if he was quite far behind Rea :)
Agree with you here. Thing is, we don't know what goes on behind the scenes. We all know it's not just the rider, but the team. I heard rumour that whilst at Honda Rea had full on factory technicians whereas leon had to make do with Dave from the shop counter. And which of reas teammates have actually done better then him? There's been world champs failto beat him. Is that because Rea is so good or is it because the balance of the team is not quite as they would have us beleive?

MotoGP » Crutchlow enjoys ‘aggressive’ Honda debut


Ausrossi: I have said previously the exact same thing he has it all in front of him the bike the experience now etc so if he doesn't set the world on fire on the factory RCV sorry mate give it up. Having said that I think his words are interesting in relation to the Honda v Yam/Ducati. I have always said that since they did the major revision 2010/11 the Honda now matches Yam in handling but most importantly and you can see in Marquez v Rossi and that is in braking. I so hope that Yam make up some ground so that we can see what Marquez can do with a level playing field, as while alot of it is him alot is the bike also. And before you say what about Dani sorry great rider but not WC material, had his chances and yes alot of bad luck, but as Lee Trevino said "the harder I work the luckier I get".
It was Gary Player who said that, wasnt it?

MotoGP » Stoner completes two-day Honda test at Motegi


dickiebird:
Hailwood took more than a decade off and was up to speed very quickly, and Stoner has been compared to him by none other than Agostini. .
Hailwood was never, "up to speed" as you claim. He raced in the IOM, in 1978 when it was no longer a world championship event. Who did he beat? Alex George. Ever heard of him? No, didn't think so. His other outings were in British production bike races on a Ducati dicing with..............hang on, I'll have to look it up. The truth is, as great as Hailwood was, he never returned to top level competition, and for good reason. He would have got blown into the weeds. Stoner is retired. He should stay that way.
Was there only 2 riders at the TT that year then. This the most ridiculous post I've read on the site.
