I can't afford the lawyers, and I don't have sufficient evidence at the moment.
Smells like Honda Spirit.
Still, people get their knickers in a bunch when I try to explain why HRC focusing on the Dakar is a bad idea...
What happened with the big Motegi showdown over spec ECU's? Did they kick the can down the road again?
Never ascribe to malice that which can adequately be explained by incompetence.
Fuel or not, Cal deserves a factory ride, in my humble fan-boy opinion.
He puts a Tech-3 bike on the front row, consistently; challenges for podiums against the big guns; really, really pushes the package he has available.
And, from my armchair, seems to improve/learn/develop especially well.
To top it off, he seems like the kind of bloke you'd enjoy sharing a beer with
And he routinely fails to beat his team mate.
Like the guy, but first, you gotta beat the guy on the same bike to earn that ride before him.
Absolutely and in a nutshell ....
You do wonder how he would have gone this season had he not been moved aside for Simo at Repsol
Thank you for the clarification. For me, it makes little difference which power broker screwed the series. They all point their finger at the other guy anyway. I won't tolerate it. Let's see how their throttle responds to a declining fan base.
Not at all. Repressing anger is what eats people up.
It's all in how the anger is expressed.
Some one needs to tell Stoner about who changes the rules he blames Dorna in every interview when most changes are brought about by the company he rides for.
We have told him. Dennis Noyes and I have sat there and said to him, when he complained that Dorna introduced the 800s. "That was Honda's decision. They wanted it, and they got it." He merely said "that's not what I understand."
Bump!!!! Come on Kropotkin, whats the word on this?
Basically, Dorna told the factories to come up with their own proposals by Valencia, or else he would do it for them. See my previous post for how that's likely to turn out.
An off-topic observation: For those who have been around here long enough, we can remember when our David (Krop) was just one of us, a guy who loved to read and write about racing here on ADV.
When I read the quote above, my immediate reaction was "Wow! How cool is it that one of us got to the point where he could even be there, much less write that sentence!"
David, sincerest congratulations; you have made it to the big time, and we could not be prouder!
And THAT is why ADVRider and David are so cool. I send my CAR-racing friends here so they can see how Forums and informed commentary should work. Then I see them at a next Track Day and they say "Dang, Nicky needs a scoot with a more stable front-end." I appreciate David's interviews with these courageous riders, they're funny, smart, and the riders clearly feel appreciated. Thanks Krop!!
I don't hang out here as much as I used to, but my heart is always with Advrider. You guys gave me the encouragement to get started, and I am eternally grateful for it.
You may be a big girl's blouse, but you're OUR big girl's blouse!
We knew him when...
... he was much less of an asshole?
