You accuse me and others of speculation and if, if, if - your whole argument is based on it.
You are speculating over Stoner's mental state, his ability to cope under pressure. You refer to past races as examples yet you have no idea what caused the crashes you refer to. You should do given the number Rossi had on the thing whilst under no pressure (other than the spectre of Stoner perhaps) You're speculating. You throw up the same old argument every few topics. All I did was point out that your hero also suffers from occassional failure in dealing with pressure (based on your definition) I then went on to say they all do, because they do, occassionally, all slip up, which is understandable given the level they are performing at. You keep singling out Stoner.
You constantly speculate by refering to him 'going fishing' when the reality is you know feck all about what was going on. Anyone could see the state he was in after races compared to his normal condition. Throwing up in his helmet was obviously of no significance..
Same with your RCV / M1 speculation - None of us - no-one - knows which is better. The only way would be to put one of the top three on both bikes and hope you got an honest opinion as they are the only riders capable of pushing them to their limits. ANYTHING else from ANYONE is speculation. IF it is the best bike explain the lack of a 1, 2, 3, 4 finish.
If you don;t like the if, if, if responses, stamp them out with some hard irrefutable facts. You won't though because you can't. Instead of answering direct questions (like the 1, 2, 3, 4 Honda finish) you insult.
Just hope your hard facts aren't as inaccurate as your 80 second fix interpretation.... referring to the Yamaha.... If you insist. But just for you
Burgess was confident that he and Rossi would soon get the bike up to speed. It was clear that the bike was already competitive, Burgess told Abrams, and the issues he saw could be solved relatively easily. "If we had that issue with Valentino it'd be fixed in 80 seconds," Burgess said.
