There is no agenda. You keep labelling me an orange whatever, but news for you here. I have never, ever owned a Honda road bike nor wanted to. I've always thought of them as bland, boring featureless creations and that includes the blade, as good as it is. Rode a mate's once, it did everything well but for me - no soul, left me cold.
A Honda fan? No, I hated them for leading the campaign to rid the world of offroad 2-strokes and replace them with overly expensive 4 bangers which no-one wanted second hand because of the rebuild costs.
Yamaha is actually my favoured Jap marque. It should amuse you enough that I have to put up with VR on one...
Now, my last post was a perfectly reasonable argument as to why the Yamaha isn't necessarily as inferior to the Honda as some would have. No fabrication, no twisting of facts, the facts I used are available for anyone to see.
VR and some of his followers (who have become ever more silent since the euphoria of Qatar, thought he was going to waft back onto a Yamaha and it would glide him on auto pilot to immediately podium at worst, win races without question and possibly take the title. Lorenzo seems to think he has the right to glide around up front and unchallenged by anyone in an unhindered run through to another title.
Both of them have probably received the wake up call they needed
The realisation should be dawning that in Pedrosa and Marquez they have two very determined riders who are prepared to push very very hard for race wins - the bike language should be enough evidence of that, demonstrated very clearly at Cota where you could see the effort they were putting in through the twisties after turn 1.
Then there's Cal who is riding on a high at the moment and who, if they don't get their fingers out, is going to prove an embarassment to their claims that their bike isn't up to challenging the Honda. As I said before, no-one rates him as being on the same level as "the four" so how is he as close to them as he is if a) he isn't as good as them and b) he is on an inferior bike. He should be back with Bradl at best. But he's smashing the two satellite Honda riders on their virtual works machinery. Doesn't add up does it...
Lorenzo and Rossi need to get their fingers out. Yamaha shouldn't be sending boffins into the Tech3 garage
