You know your MotoGP thread has degenerated when the topic has become GS final drive failures.

We all know that the Bridgestones are 'stiff in sidewall construction'.

Have a look at the pics in posts 1130 and 1162. In both pics, the riders are braking hard enough to have the rear wheel off the ground and yet it is almost impossible to see any tyre compression.

Now that is STIFF!!!

It will be interesting to see how such a stiff tire effects the handeling of these bikes. Anybody excited to see the vyrus bike race??

yeah, pretty radical. There is a video on youtube of MCN guy riding it and he said it was AMAZING. Neat to see a company thinking WAY outside the box in a class with spec engines.

QUESTION:
Can you watch or listen to motogp events online?
