    Humble request, lets try to be less bossy and enjoy this thread.
    No bossy issue. If someone thinks that I have written something wrong, just quote my name or my post. But, why post in an indirect way? That's all. Nothing more. Well, I need a break too!

But, when Mat Oxley publishes this, he 'd have thought about it. Millions listen to him across the globe. He can't just fake it.

    In any case, stop pointing out fingers.
    As I said, this is an old argument. You're right, this started in 2006, when Pedrosa came in. Since then, a ton of specialists (believe it or not, there are others apart from Mat Oxley as well) have agreed that the advantages and disadvantages of rider weights pretty much cancel each other out (and I subscribe to this school of thought as well). The heavier riders can corner easier, faster, don't struggle with wheelies so much and have an easier time getting the drive out of the corners (lesser rear wheel spin).

    Lighter riders on the other hand have the power to weight advantage and accelerate faster in the straight line.

    And as any racing enthusiast would be aware, a laptime is made/wrecked in corners, not in straight lines, so the Pedrosa camp even argues that the heavier riders have an ADVANTAGE and it's a miracle that he can even keep up with them.

    Calm down. 3 people posted about leaner fuel mix and that was the ongoing topic. Surely you don't expect me to quote everyone in an ongoing conversation, do you? I'm not attacking you, personally. :\

    Actually, I haven't even read that tweet myself. I have, however, read similar opinions in comments sections of motogp news sites ever since Rossi ran out of fuel (was it in spain) first. And the fanboys vehemently attributing the leaner fuel mixture to Rossi's (relative) lack of pace.

    Asphalt and Rubber -

    There is unfounded paddock gossip that if Hernandez adapts well to the Desmosedici, he could take Spies’ place next year. That, however, depends on a messy and expensive severance between Ducati and Spies.
    At the moment, such talk should be rated as improbable, but not entirely impossible.

    Wasn't the first time it happened like this. So, I had to.... Anyway, peace out.

    OK , now thats out of the way.

    Rossi has been complaining about problems in braking, thats his strong point, u know, like Lorenzo's corner speed is very strong, but when someone messes his line, like previously Marquez did. It was tough for him to ride around and over take Marquez. Plus Lorenzo has found adequate set up for braking, which might not even be helpful for Rossi, cuz Lorenzo is very smooth on brakes, and Rossi needs more than that. (Atleast looks like it).

    I read somewhere (guess some of commenrts, so cant be sure how accurate it is) Rossi using 2010 fork at Assen, if that is the case, I dunno why he wouldnt have continued using it.

    Anyways, test today!! Lets us('fan Boys') hope he finds a good setup where atleast he gives a good fight, before petitions start circling in UK .......

    One thing i don't get: how come the the fairings and windscreen on a MotoGP bike are so spic and span after a race !?
    On something travelling as fast a MotoGP bike one would expect it to be covered with dead bugs after the race.

    Others try and fail -

    It is the way he rides and it is the way he is beating the Hondas. No other Yamaha has ever been able to do it apart from Valentino a few years ago. It’s pointless looking at Lorenzo’s data because he runs a completely different bike to us in set-up and when any of us try and ride his bike we can’t get round the track within one second of him. Jorge is on another planet.

    Does anyone understand why Yamaha can't trickle down the seamless gearbox to the tech3 boys yet? I mean, is it just an artificial delay or is there some legitimate reason behind it?

    No they are not that Spic and span as they look. In the Ultra slow motion camera shots you would see all kinds of sports on the from of those bikes. I especially noticed the repsols. So from far away and while these are running, they might not be visible, but I remember seeing many patches of dead insects on the front during that Ultra Slow Mo shot.

    Didn't expect that a BlackHawk today. Looks like they are gonna test a lot of components and different settings.

    That tank looks a bit bulged on top compared to the regular. Isn't it?
