MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass

TalentFan: The hard bit is ....
If the electronics are as clever as you think, nobody would ever fall off ... obvious fallacy ... But you have to keep going about conspiracies over and over again having been disproved over and over again.
No pro racer here, but the hard bit is managing the engine braking/throttle to help level out the bike in the turns, of course you always need a healthy fearless attitude, but the electronics makes matching the speed of the rear wheel and managing the balance of your bike MUCH EASIER. ANti-wheely is always nice, and electronics are probably easily 1000x times more precise than the crude throttle, even if you can count engine ticks on idle. Also, you could probably use TC/sensors to manage the exact (fairly) state of the tires with respect to temperature and wear, something a pilot will never be able to do. Cybernetics ...

MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass

RSMick: How long does it take for you to turn your hand 90deg in a moment of adrenalin rush? Why do we still get highsides? How long do you think it takes to scan the code?
actually RSMick, Adrenaline makes it easier to think :) You are not really panicking, you just are kind of DOING IT. There is no what if, only Master Yoda. Bullet time, is another way of thinking about it, almost always though that effect is on recall, but your state of mind during is quite clear, at least mine was last time I slung both wheels laterally. Talent Fan is right, smooth off, in order to get the tires to break back in to the limit of static friction, away from kinetic/dynamic friction. A high side happens when the rear wheel grips too suddenly and bike is cocked and both wheels are pointing different directions and your a** is flying like God lifted you out of the seat himself. wikipedia friction RSMick. You might learn something.

MotoGP » Delighted Dovizioso breaks 10sec barrier

V4Poweeeer: Dovi is doing a superb job and hopefully next seasons bike is enough to fight for wins would he great for the championship. He tyre change in 2016 just throws and spanner in the works and will only be a temporary shake up of things thoughthough.
Except that in reality Michelin will have to test with the MFRs and teams the year prior, if you are expecting any surprises, do your self *a favor* and don't hold your breath. Biggest budgets/teams will stay on top. Nothing will change, and most of the stakeholders will be happy.

MotoGP » MotoGP Silverstone - Race Results

RockNRolla46: Conspiracy theories for today- 1. Dorna messed up Lorenzo's tires again to please Evil Honda Racing Corporation. 2. Honda is using some type of tech to slow down Yamaha on the straights. Honda was like 1000 km/h faster than Yamaha. 3. Repsol is using some sort of magic fuel to help Marquez cheat. 4. Marquez was letting Lorenzo lead the race to create some sort of "Show" 5. Dorna would've given Lorenzo a season ban if it was him putting a hard move on Marquez instead of vice-versa.
lets not forget MM was 1.5 seconds faster a lap than Dani last year in Barcelona and still couldn't get by him for 2nd place. Lolz. MM is not a great rider, but he is on a great package. But people will believe what ever it is they want to believe, especially if they are told to.

Poddy: @Gillies @areyoutalking, one major flaw in your comments. The last year Dani and Stoner were together, who was in the hunt for the championship and won the most races? dani I believe. Sorry to have to be the one to correct you but in Stoners last year and before hand he dominated Dani and even after his injury he took the race to Dani at Philip Is and Dani folded, If you count the races Stoner was not in, which I think you need too yes Dani won more as Stoner did not race, but if you count the total they raced in, they were level on wins but Stoner was injured, so nice try but Stoner was the rider to bring Honda a WC and back before MM came here. As for Stoner beating MM, I dont think he could, but he would have been closer than any other rider, the Honda suited Stoner better than most
No, Stoner would have no chance against MM, because he wasn't brought up from the cradle with REPSOL tattooed to his bum.
