Re: The Obligatory Post Your Bike Topic

Thanks for that tip! Any idea how they are in cooler temps? The thing that tipped me off to a problem with these Dunlops is that they had trouble hooking up at around 50F/10C, which I don't consider to be "too cold to grip". With my older bike, 20-25 years ago, I don't ever remember having a proble...

Re: Rossi to Yamaha!!

Quite simply, for Yamaha as a company, which would be more valuable, Rossi or Jorge being crowned champion. I do believe it's beneficial if either do, but I can't help but feel there s more to exploit and capitalise on for them if Rossi wins. I agree on that but only in terms of perhaps single seas...

Re: HRC Sepang Test

Dani is apparently having surgery. Don't know what for though. Really? Haven't heard about that . Oh well. He's just used to having surgery every year so he want's to get one out of the way before the season starts... That's very funny! But, did he actually go a full year without needing surgery?

I'm inclined to think he will win a race or two next season, but that will be countered but at least 4 or 5 DNFs while he gets used to the bike and the weight and how to ride a race. My only fear is that he'll take one or two other riders out at the same time early in a race and do some damage. Rei...
