What makes an L-4 an L-4 ? The blokes that won with them I guess. Rossi ain't one of them. He likes a turbine which the V5 was. Hell! Old Capirex has been doing his damndest to assuage Rossi within the tyre belt since he canned the game and rightly so. The bloke dragged a poor bike into GP at Catalunya many years back with a win. Hell,Wosi,we all love you.
Lets agree on one thing for once. Without Rossi and Ducati's demise in GP we would not have a sport to complain about,current.
Sadly for him and hugely irrelevant,5 cylinder engines are not sanctioned. Closest available synergy is crossplane crank in line 4 characteristics.
Back then the V5 was certainly an iron fist in a velvet glove vs 500 2 stroke. M1 right now looks like a velvet fist in an iron glove. Silky bike. Ducati somewhere dumbed down between,current. Suzuki comeback !!! YO HO HO and a bottle of RUM. Bring it on.
Back to topic. George/Le Mans/ Bridgestone.
One Bridgestone tyre. They will never admit it. I for one,believe it was Bridgestone issue,not a Lorenzo issue. They better get their scates on. All hail Mugello next weekend.
As ever bring back the tyre war. DUMB ASS GPC. Spectators keep the sport alive,not your personality orientated rule book.
I am looking forward to the Le Mans 24 Hour.
