I was wondering if thats going to be on Full factory Honda's (knowing the rider rules allow wild card riders to do so) not rookies. maybe as a wake up call to those who thought about not going to Japan Honda have a reputation for remembering things. And if so is there the slightest possibility of seeing a return to the days when in Japan it was normal to see a Japanese rider on the podium. I really would love to see it . But .........? What do you think.

  • Ducati Sponsorship 2011 (motoGP)?

    Thinking about the new colour scheme Marlboro Fiat or AMG Mercedes Lorenzo was still in the Fiat colours (though I suppose he was still under contract for 2010) No colours on Ben or Rossi's bikes. What will an AMG Ducati look like. http://translate.google.com/translate?pr... Could look as cool as the Scott/JiR Bike that Dovi rode.

Or is there something we dont know ? Has Ducati actually signed him ? is this the reason Casey might be signed up to HRC. Any thoughts or speculations

    Though vigorously denied - Rossi has been accused more than once of braking early. by more than a few riders. To put this into perspective, a bike traveling at 200mph covers the best part of 100meters per second. these riders when in the slipstream are less than 20ft apart. those of you that have either been to the track or observant enough to see them on screen will have seen the 50 - 100 - 150 marker boards. and will know the braking areas are between the 100 - 150 marks. when racing another rider in close proximity, you expect the guy in front to try to brake as late as possible to stop you doing so. Given that this happens in less than a second (by the distance covered) Try this :- your following the guy in front, (have been for several laps) you see the corner approaching, You see your marker Then you see the guy move before he gets there. arms flinch and shoulders rise. What do you do ? How dangerous is this tactic ? Before anyone answers with you wouldnt do it because of the danger to yourself !! These guys reaction times are beyond belief. Though the time allowed is very very short. Any views ?
