"MotoGP bikes are rigid wild things that need huge ability and strenth to ride properly." What the hell are you talking about? Take a look at the top motogp riders, they are lean but not about to win any bench-press competitions. You need more strength to be a gymnast ans there are plenty of women doing that.

I know what I'm talking about lad. I wasn't slagging Melissa off, just expressing my opinion on her ability to ride a MotoGP bike. There aren't many bike racers good enough to ride a MotoGP bike properly to be fair, male or female.

125 gp.

what does a tuned RS125 have 45hp at the most?

what does it weight. 90kg?

  a 10 year old could put in a decent lap on one of those things.

Flippin` `eck

Chill out will yuz?

Its just a few people having a laugh. Don`t be so touchy.

Having said that, if a woman was going to be good enough we might have seen it before now. There was that girl in the 250`s about the time of Poggialli but her name escapes me... she wasn`t too bad, kind of mid-pack. But I`m stuggling to think of any other who`s been up there.

Katcha Poegnsen??? Yeh, something like that she was called. CBA to look her up. But nice looking girl mind, she didn`t struggle too much for sponsors lets put it that way!

Here we go................:tongue:

good luck

urggh...why expect anything else? Does it really matter that she's female and been given this opportunity? Do you think she cares whether some retard from the home counties or whereever resents her for her fucking gender..let alone the chance to ride? Anyone who is into bikes, male or female would jump at the chance. So good luck to her and I hope she has a great time on it. In the meantime, all of you who decide to vent your insecurities on line....carry on. No-one really cares, no one is really interested.....particularly Melissa, who will be giving you the metaphorical finger very shortly (now go and google you go...)
