Valentino Rossi outpaced in Phillip Island

The forthcoming Valencia MotoGP test can’t come soon enough for Valentino Rossi after his penultimate appearance for Ducati in Australia yesterday proved to be another humbling experience. The Italian will be back on a factory Yamaha YZR-M1 at the Valencia test where he will begin the journey of trying to prove that at 33 he is still fast enough to fight...

the hangman likes a good choker, that was funny shit, same its pasted by the silly old twat.

Hedgey  the milkshake jibe was humour, again for the orange thong wearing kiwl nazi.

Sensible question for you and everyone else, Bob butlicka and i were on about it a day or two ago. What do you thinks required  for the tchnical regs so the manchinery will be more competitve through out the field?

Whilst im glad Rossi will get a chance to show whether he's still got it or not, i agree with Bob its rediculess that teams wont give enough talent up and comers a chance.

CCB ...

... when a seven times loser is given yet another chance, it would be unfair to deny a nine times World Champion a similar opportunity.

Ideally, but without giving it much thought:

Remove most if not all of the electronic aids. If anyone thinks they need traction control, GPS mapping, anti-wheelie, launch control, electronically controlled suspension etc. etc. on a road bike they're in cuckoo land, it's fantasy to say they are for the future benefit of road users, they are to gain an advantage on the track. That alone would bring the power of the engines down to something that the riders would have to manage without the electronic toys. Less development cost on both electrics and engines.

Allow other tyre manufacturers back in but not under contract to specific teams. Allow them to develop different compounds and allow the teams to use whichever suit them best. Absolutely no one-off specials for teams or riders. Any tyre must be availble to any rider. Whether tyre manufacturers would buy into that I don't know as one or more may run the risk of not having their product used if they weren't competitive. The one spec tyre hasn't worked and has arguably cost more than it was intended to save.

The bikes could remain genuine prototypes and what they lost in terms of power they would get back in tyre performance so should still be kings of the lap time. More emphasis on rider input than electronics. Manufacturers to make more bikes available with hopefully reasonable parity between factory and non-factory bikes. More riders on competitive machines - get rid of CRT which has been a complete waste of time and was of some kind of political agenda.

Did you also have to repeat your mathematic 'O' levels as the ear of corn did, or is it just because you're blond?

Choker ...

... Pedrosa couldn't hide from the hangman at PI - he's still swinging from the Gallows Pole.

You are like James Cagney - copped so many bullets yet refuse to die.  Give it up - your hatred of Rossi has turned into an obsession. You are like chief inspector Charles Dreyfus from the Pink Panther movies - you will soon disappear up your own backside.  Or as Kevin 'Bloody' Wilson sang 'pull yer foreskin over yer head and disappear down yer dick!

Saturn our old ball of hot air

I never expected a lucid debate of the finer points of MotoGP with you. Just you be careful where you put that light sabre.

BCB. T'was a fine interview that. You've got to laugh and admire Nakamoto San's forthright attitude. He's one I'd love to share a few pints with.
