You have to admire how good these guys all are.

“The one lap that I did on the softer tyre told me that the swingarm felt much better"

Impressive after only an outlap. I bet most of us mere mortals could have ridden round on both swingarms all day and not been able to tell the difference.

SOmethingh that Rea is been Worcking all is live to be more precise..eehehe

Honda is well know for be one of the esayest Sport bikes on the planet, the problem of 2012 was Power and lack of brain of Rea that still act like a kid most of the times on race situacions and end up crashing.. He could have made better then is final place and he had some changes for race wins that he waste.. Honda is helping this Team but i still think that with Rea the WC will never arrive is to nervous

They're excellent street bikes where they don't get pushed to the limit.

But the ones with Repsol colors will beat anything on the street hands down. That paint scheme must be mixed with nitro or something.

hey, everyone is entitled to their own opinion for sure but some of the comments about the best riders on the planet really suck balls, c'mon heroes if you had a clue how difficult this job is for these dudes maybe you would cut em some slack !!!

We're entitled to slag them off, coz we pay their wages. An often forgotten point.
And it's not a hard job. It's getting paid to play. No one would work all week and save some money to do my job some weekends of the year, but many of us do that to sample their nine-to-five, as it were.

more trolls than you can shake a stick at in here... I would have thought that motorcycle racing would be one of the few subjects not to attract them :/

I rate Haslam as one of the best superbike riders out there. If he didn't fall off from time to time then he isn't trying hard enougt
