Yamaha satisfied new 1000 is competitive

Yamaha is confident its new factory YZR-M1 1000cc machine is competitive to challenge Casey Stoner and Honda for the 2012 MotoGP world championship crown. Stoner and Honda have dominated this year’s winter testing schedule so far, with the Aussie topping the timesheets in both Sepang tests in Malaysia recently. Stoner will start the new 1000cc era in Qatar on April 8 as...

Funny thing about IF'S...

You can build an IF to do about anything. IF I was the best racer in the world, and IF I was on the fastest motorcycle in the world, I would be the WC.

To earn the right to fight

you gotta catch him first. Good luck with that......all riders making noises about various issues they're facing this year.....chatter, weight, fitness etc. It's been unequivocally proved (painfully to many) who's best equipped to ride around issues and get results.

Only three aliens?..more like only three pussies!

Gee, what a lovely quote after a handful of racing-related deaths in recent history, what wisdom you display. Tell me, when you refer to 'most real fans' do you include yourself in that category, as surely a real fan wouldn't make such disrespectful and downright incorrect statements...

Please provide examples of stoner's distaste for a fight when on bikes which would actually turn prior to 2007 or in 2011, and examples of rossi's dogfighting capabilities on the 2011 ducati.

IF`S AND BUTT`S.

         This site is built on IF`S and some fluffy cloud`s with cherub`s shooting rubber arrow`s on `em. And to those "comedian`s" on here who think that more rider`s should throw caution to the wind,and ride more "aggresively",{ over their limit },they wouldn`t be allowed.Ban`s would become the norm`,aka,Simo,only one rider has regularly got away with such tactic`s,and we all know who that is.      Luckily, no one on this site,is living in the past,ha ha ffs. So here`s to a safe,competetive 2012 season,with no midfield, out of control riding,wide berth`s given to the CRT`s and "known" crasher`s,{ 12 },and a top 3 that ride close and hard,all year,without riding off track,{ ambition`s that don`t outweigh talent },we will see. The "new" midfield 5th------8th,what a shame.

Ummmmm, more conjecture than actual sensible comment here. Here's some more;

Stoner, Fastest of all, but prone to not like it up him and winge like a girl.

Lorenzo, clean fast and clever, managed to do Rossi's head, will he like Ben beating him now and then?

Dovi, underated and will show Honda they were stupid to sack him.

Pedrosa, overated and will show Honda that they were stupid not to sack him.

Spies, metally unbreakable, phsically strong at the end of the race and the only one to stand up for Sic'

Rossi, Older, wiser and with more race craft than the rest put together, give the old guy a chance.

Hayden, consistent enough to beat the golden boy of HRC to a title, still has it on the day.

Bautista, Getting faster by the day and always smiling, top 5 regular.

Crutchlow, More suited to the 1000 and ready to shock a few people.

The rest,  fighting to get in the top ten.......

Roll on Qatar, let's hope we have some fairing bashing on track and maybe some good old fashioned paddock fist fights.....

power

Yamaha have got to be in with a better chance this year with the 1000s, should even things up a bit in the power department. All the Yamaha riders are looking strong from testing. Best outcome for me next year would be some podiums or even a win for Cal.
