Valentino Rossi signs new two-year Yamaha deal

Valentino Rossi has penned a new two-year deal with Yamaha’s factory MotoGP squad. The Italian made it clear right from pre-season testing in February that he wished to clinch a new two-year contract to remain on a YZR-M1 for 2015 and ’16. And a brilliant opening half to the current campaign has got the 35-year-old the new contract he was seeking to...

DRUIDS. Perhaps you should go out a try sliding your Scooter with a passenger as heavy as your jokes. I'm sure you'd learn something useful.

Pol Espargao doesn't need lessons from anyone even not Marquez when it comes to that, he did beat him before and still can do it given the right bike.

He is just limited by the Yamaha Chassis and the  does evolve toward a more balanced bike with better turn-in and acceleration qualities, which demands changes in chassis and engine electronics, geometry, weight distribution, engine braking etc. youtu.be/uhYu0QI2LHc

The M1 is FAR from being designed for sliding since Rossi's crash in 2010, it evolved specifically around Lorenzo 250 syle based in corner speed which is only a HALF of the qualities of Yamaha title winning OW which were equally good on the brakes and gas, perfect balance.

To achieve that, they needed a Kenny Roberts, Eddie Lawson or Wayne Rainey, simply because these guys knew everything there is to know about chassis, gear box, suspension, and could give proper technical insight to the team for developing the right chassis. Once Rainey gone they didn't win a title for ten years even not a single race in 2003 before the arrival of Rossi.

The 2011/13 M1 is the opposite of what the RC is, the Honda is a quasi-copy of their RCV/NSR 500, literally, same wheel base, weight distribution, Cg position and eve volume.

RC-NSR 500

Honda RC

Compare the M1 to their previous title-winning OW and you will see the difference, Yamaha are fortunate they have Rossi on board today.

Druids WHOTWOZAT?

No one expected you to get smart before, no one expect you to get smarter now. Business as usual.

For the rest of us mere mortals, reality check:

About the pillion weight, it's more or less in principle the difference between the RC and the Lorenzo's developed  M1, go out and try to slide your bike with fat mama on the end of her seat behind you and come back tell us the two are the same thing than when you managed to loose her. (poor woman)...

This example should work better with some than the one where you try to hit a nail with a 10kg sledge hammer holding it by the end of the handle, to illustrate the effects of weight and inertia.

Master Eddie show how it's done.

 He said blah blah............. M-C ........ big 250........... Kenny Roberts......... RCV rear slide.  Usual stuff.  

Well deserved from Rossi. Good to see him and Lorenzo working together to improve the bike to a standard where they can hopefully  put a bit of worry into the Repsol garage.  

JLo has no intention of leaving Yamaha he's just trying to negotiate his fee upwards. Maybe they should offer him a retainer of 500k and an extra 500 each race he finishes in front of MM.

You win DeGrasse

They've given up. Just like the riders they support. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Yes, patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success. Which is why Rossi has seen them all off, with the notable exception of Marquez. But they don't really like him either 'cause he's buddies with Rossi, and he's made that whiny, sickly Aussie kid, instantly forgettable.
