Ducati urged to try radical revamp of Desmosedici

Ducati has been urged to consider a radical revamp of its factory Desmosedici MotoGP contender after Andrea Dovizioso and Nicky Hayden were left completely underwhelmed by a latest test on the Bologna factory’s experimental ‘lab’ bike in Mugello recently. The revised Desmosedici offers barely any improvement on the current GP13 that Dovizioso and Hayden are racing in MotoGP and once again...

BUK BUK BUGERK..

Talking headless chickens..How's it going Bob?

Not too well, judging by your MotoGP comprehension and the Australian ashes build-up.

Bob's Book of Back Yard Cricket is obviously still a favourite bed-time peruse for Wallaby..I mean, Wannabe cricketers from down under, and needs a major update.

Bit like the bods at Ducati Corse who still cling to the belief Reverse Engineering a GP Race Bike, by Preziosi & Stoner, is essential reading on the factory shitter at Bologna.

Wosi...

"Dovi was full of his predictably corporate and yes man clichés... "

Rossi "I'm happy because first impressions are important, and already in the first few laps, I could tell that I like the bike. Ducati did a good job in a just a short time. The bike is beautiful, but more importantly, it's nice to ride."

Corporate bullshit from the bullshit king?... you can't call one without the other.

"What a headless chicken.... BUK BUK BUGERK.."

OK Wosi, sounds like multiple choice is the only option you are willing to try because you're too pissweak to ever revisit your manic, bipolar ramblings again.

Q1. Although Flo has a gajillion know nothing fans who proclaim him to be the goatboy that can sell t-shirts better than God himself, he is the most over rated rider in the history of the sport because :-

a) In direct comparison on the Yamaha, he is considerably behind Lorenzo

b) In direct comparison to Stoner on the Ducati, there is no comparison

c) In direct comparison to Dovi on the Ducati, there is negligible difference

d) Despite having the championship bike, his results are no better than on the 'unrideable' Ducati

e) DORNA can't change enough rules to help him win the championship

f) Despite being only 34, an age that other riders were still winning championships, he and his no nutted fans claim he is 'too old'

g) All of the above

h) All of the above and then some

I'll bet you haven't got the nuts to answer.

Will, an example to prove your point might go a long way to stop me from thinking you are as full of shit as Wosi.

Multiple choice : c)..

Stop dribbling you sour faced old tart..just because I don't think Casey Stoner was half the competitor you reckon he was, there's no need to strain a bollock.

He was fast on his day when everything went right, but wasn't much of a scrapper and slunk off home to wipe arse and go fishing without backing up a title. Most red-blooded Aussies would agree his lilly-livered, thin skinned tantrums undermined his talent. Nakamoto said he was immature.

Tyres in 2007 and a seamless shift box in 2011 had him on the right bikes at the right time..his results were always going backwards otherwise.

Get the fk over your disappointment he's left and shown you up for the part-time numpty you are.

I see Gobmeier has been whining about not having custom built tyres like they had 2007/8..says it all about Stoner and Ducati.

Engineers

Correct me if I'm wrong but haven't Ducati been messing about with stiffness since the Carbon fibre days? The problem at ducati isn't the riders-they've got and have had some really talented guys- it's the engineers and the philosophy at Ducati. Yes the bike has great traction and drive but this has always been at the expense of handling. Stop making Drag bikes and start making race bikes
