What it should tell you..is that opinions are like arseholes and Butthole Bulto is one of the first to bend over and offer his up when it comes to Stoner.
His "This is how it is" comment is typically dogmatic and presented as fact.
It is two-pronged. 2007, Ducati wasn't the best bike. Today, neither is the Honda.
I call bullshit on both, in my opinion, and it has nothing to do with Rossi..so Shutup and stop being so fkin sensitive.
2007, Ducati caught the others with their pants down. It was a rocketship. It also used Bridgestones, far superior to Michelins of the time. Five out of the top 7 ran the tyres that year and included both Suzuki's and a satellite Honda with distinctly non-stand out riders onboard.
The bike was a formidable package. Casey rode the season very well and deserved his title, but as stated, never came close to repeating the feat again.
Capirossi & Barros both beat him in races on equal/lesser machinery, neither are considered outstanding top class riders either.
Loris won that year, had two 2nd's and a 3rd, yet Bulto bases his whole theory on a throwaway "He couldn't ride the bike."
Now where have we heard that before I wonder?
We know Buttholes stance on the 2013 Honda. He believes the bike is no better than the Yamaha.
Lorenzo has won half the races this year and the last two on the trot!
Wowee..open & shut case then.
Like all the orange gumbies, there is no acknowledgement of how the 2013 RCV has transformed serial bridesmaid Pedrosa's results over the last 15 races.
It is fobbed off that for 6-and-a-half years, Dani averaged 2.5 wins per season BUT, since the new bike he's won 8 races.
8 wins in 15 races is effectively 10 races a season.
His big pal Nostro reckons Pedrosa is better than Lorenzo, it's supposedly down to Dani learning new technique's after all this time and 'Standing it up on the Fat Part'..
Oh and btw..it's the Yellow fans who are deluded.
