An interesting turn of phrase..
What exactly does it mean?
The bikes are dumbed down, with less electronic aids, so the riders have to be smarter to ride them?
The bikes stay as computer controlled, ride-by-wire rolling R&D test labs, that allow dumbed down riders to compete more equally?
Personally..I hope the MSMA's proddy racers get spanked and nobody bothers spending a bean with the megalomaniac bastards..
Change the GP rules and make everything open..Weight, Fuel, Tyres, Capacity & Engines..but make 'em run throttle cables.
If they want to run fancy RBW electronics costing the earth - that are supposed to be street useful but nobody needs/uses/wants - run the junk in WSB but with homologated hard and software.
Limited fuel racing is abnormal and fked up.
Good effort by Laverty btw..Imagine if the cream of British riders were to have a go?
We must be the strongest racing nation on the planet right now..all things being equal?
