Valentino Rossi still not comfortable on YZR-M1

Valentino Rossi is still not 100% comfortable and confident on Yamaha’s factory YZR-M1 after an up and down return to the Japanese factory in 2013. The Italian made a fairytale return to Yamaha in Qatar last month when he produced a rousing recovery from seventh to second. But the 34-year-old struggled to a disappointing sixth in the inaugural Circuit of the Americas...

Foghorn Smallhorn..

Talking double-baggers..I was chatting with Nostro's missus the other day and apparently, he most definitely isn't a massive bell end..

..more a skinless party chipolata, on a stick..a bit like his mouth.

Yamaha Development Going Backwards Shock!!!

The longer they keep Rossi, the worse the bike will get.  The fraud is exposed again.

so exactly what is a competetive bike

One that allows Jorge to get far enough ahead so he can't be passed by a Honda on the last corner? Or more likely one that allows Rossi to get on the podium. Did you watch qatar?

Wosi...

"We still don't have a very competitive bike. We need to improve it."

Modifying quotes Wosi? Those are JL's words... i.e. he's never labelled the bike uncompetitive. It's pedantics so not really bothered... it's not uncommon for a rider to blame his bike if he doesn't win... some call it moaning from certain riders & believe it from others. I take it all with a pinch of salt.

Help is at hand..

One of the main reasons Yamaha signed Rossi & Burgess, was their proven technical ability.

Yamaha were concerned about the lack of clear, precise feedback they'd received from Jorge..& Spies and the technical advantages Honda have. I mean..after 5 and a half years, is it likely that Pedrosa suddenly got better?

Since Rossi left at the end of 2010, Yamaha have won just 11 races out of a possible 39.

Crutchlow has said nobody can ride the bike like Lorenzo without falling off..Spies said he couldn't adapt his style to suit the M1.

Jorge has a unique, high corner speed style and is a great rider but even Forcada has said he is weak technically.

It's a very good bike, don't get me wrong..but it's not on the same page as the RCV.

Lorenzo's little outburst after Jerez criticising the machine, must have confirmed the factories doubts.

Furusawa will be floating about behind the scene and you can guess who he'll be talking to eh?...expect bike development to start ramping up and, now that initial due deference has been paid to the WC, the Yellow side of that garage to start making inroads into Honda's clear superiority.

Not a popular opinion amongst the lemming-like Orange trolls I accept..but HEY, get used to it Suckers.

Singalongawosi chaps..

Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
So let's sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again..

Comedy gold Wosi, comedy gold!..


What proven technical abilities does Rossi actually have?...

A glance into the history books reveals that at Honda Rossi and his long-time engineer Jeremy Burgess had one of the most versatile and amazing racing motorcycle ever built: the V5 RC211V. At Yamaha they had a bike that actually wasn't that far off, as well as Masao Furasawa at every round with his project-leading hand on the tiller. 

Fuck me, even he's said himself he's no engineer and setting up a bike is as good as it gets...

Yamaha have a championship winning bike, while Rossi and Burgess drove the Ducati into the dirt.  Despite all the evidence to the contrary,  the yellow fangirls still believe night is day.

The legendary retardation of Rossi fans is exactly what Yamaha is banking on to sell their bikes and that's the main reason they let him back on the bike.

Was that a cut and paste job from two years ago Wosi?

You do seem to love sticking that big chin of yours out there for a good old walloping.
