"meanwhile as carmelo scrambles to make up for the loss of simoncelli, he gets blindsided by stoner's departure. god help us all when ross packs it in."

As I see it, with the continued adoption of all the rider-aids to keep the factories cheery, then the holy grail for Honda is to perfect a bike that they could Gaffer-Tape your Granny on and it would take itself (& Granny) around the track at race-winning velocity.

It must irk Honda no end that despite the wonders of their machines, its mainly the Riders that attract all the attention and are still (just about) THE vital ingredient in bike racing success. Once they've eradicated the annoying element of a Star Rider, do they hope all the focus will be about about Yam v Honda instead of Rossi v Stoner?
