It'd be their bad luck if you chose this week to finally use your banhammer for the first time. : razor

That really was a bit surprising. On the other hand, this was the only sponsor-related tweet coming out of ASO central up to now:

Yes, I'm sure they only posted that because it's cute and funny.

No. 123 Rod Faggotter - problem?

Rod should have come through WP3 by now?

Hopefully he hasn't had a mechical (or worse still, a crash)

I actually already managed to find 1 or 2 asshats in the Racing forum to ban. It's hard to find them in this forum of gentlemen, but they do exist!

Even if i dont like the Honda brand very much and how they do things i do belive it is good they enter as a factory.

What i see here is that they take a potential podium rider and expecting good results, but when it went in the fuel issues they qote "well we are only here to learn this year and going for the big win next year" only after a few stages and that is not so fun for a rider that really thought that he could go for the win..
Don't forget they signed Helder and others over 6 month ago with a long term plan - we don't know what that was, Helder does.

Telling your mom that your an overweight middle aged guy who spends entire days at a time pinned to a keyboard pressing F5, hatching conspiracy theories wishing they could one day ride an actual motorcycle in the Dakar?

Go ahead.

I learned from fish: always have spares.

Still have 4 sitting in the wings.
