Talking sportbikes and heritage?
The base GSXR1000 is 273. The Extra R model can be had for 300k.
The base R1 is 349k, and the R1M 429k......
I choose any gixxer  every single day over a heritage paintjob..... :peepwall:

Bagnaia rode a near perfect race, but if you look at his rear tyre in Parc Fermé Quartararo would have had him in one or two more laps.  Since Quartararo has put ne in a position where I am busy defrosting the Humble Pie, I like that someone is taking it to him.  A good dice for the championship is always so much better to watch.

You must have watched WSBK if you didn't see yellow smoke.  Then again, after plentyful years and proof to the contrary, you still harper about VR46 overcoming Newton's Laws, so one can imagine you prefer watching with your eyes closed, with a gentle snore and all.   :lol8:

Yamaha had their ducks in a row at the start of the season, well, at least for their best man/bike combo.
Now the others have slowly started to wake.
Reminds me of Russell Wood when he was campaigning a R1 on local soil some years ago.
Claiming the first 5 or 6 races of the season, and from there it is your championship to lose.
You can replace "YAMAHA" with the name of any other worthwhile racing manufacturer, and it's happened to them all.

Indeed, but all the other manufacturers do not have you loudly proclaiming them as perfect and flawless.   >:D :lol8:



Of course not!  They're not worthy. :patch:

Have you seen the 2022 60year anniversary R1? That's what heritage affords you. :deal:

I saw them.  I wish I hadn't.  I am up to my knees on drool.

Speaking of YAMAHA.  Misano this weekend should be interesting as we will see Franky Morbidelli return to the fray after injury, but confirmed on the ex-Vinales factory Yamaha.  He has also signed with factory Yamaha for 2022 and 2023.  Then, we will see Dovi return to ride the Petronas Yamaha vacated by Franky.  Should be lekker to see how both go on their respective Yamahas.  FQ20 and FM21.  There is still a change that the two can bring Yamaha the elusive Tripple Crown.

When the announcement came that Petronas withdrew their sponsorship and that SRT will not own the satellite team anymore, the future of a satellite team for Yamaha seemed rather dim.  I believe and I expect we will hear announcements soon, possibly this weekend, in this regard. I reckon Yamaha themselves worked hard to get a proper satellite team in place.  Main title sponsor rumoured to be WithU, but as a possible outsider for main sponsor, or part sponsor Green Power, the sponsor of the Moto3 team DB40 rode for, for two years.  It also sounds like it is Yamaha who draw Dovi in and indicated they would have a full factory bike for him for 2022 at least.  Interesting developments.  It seems Yamaha have finbally woken up to the advantages of having at least one factory bike in the satellite team.

It is a pity Petronas didn't pull their sponsorship earlier.  The VR46 team could well have been the Yamaha satellite team.

Ai tog!  Still no announcements of any use.  All we learnt is that the SRT Petronas Racing Team will be rebranded as the RNF MotoGP Racing Team still managed by Razlan Razali.  No mention of a sponsor or riders, apart from Dovi yet.  What the heck does RNF stand for?  SRT was Sepang Racing Team.  RNF?  Razlan and Friends?  Razlan no Funds? Interesting bit here is that Razlan and Stiggefeldt who ran the SRT Petronas team are splitting up.  It seems Stiggeveldt is working on buying the Petronas Moto2 team.  Michael Laverty already bought the Petronas Moto3 team and will use it as a team to promote young British riders.

We need to lknow about Darryn, for sex's sakes!  Announce!!!  :dousing:

Janee.  Unless KTM now make a bloody large step, no one will be champion on one of them.

What's gaaning aan with the KTM's? Their new chassis does not seem to be amounting to much. And Oliveira that seems to have fallen by the wayside. Can the bike really be that bad?

New chassis either a step backwards or needs more setup time , Binder went back to the old chassis for Sunday

Will that KTM get to be a consistent championship contender while BB33 is in his prime years? :-\
Personally I would like to see him chasing the title, and not development.
You cannot win a championship by praying every race turns wet towards the end, and while everyone else duck for wets you stick it out with slicks.

Lets see what KTM can muster up over the next 2 days.

See Honda has a new prototype up their sleeve being tested today.
Stroom op!
