Is flex a good thing with 280HP and super smooth track ? Off road it makes more sense.

Controlled flex , when that bike is at maximum lean your average suspension doesn't work as designed so frame and swingarm are designed with controlled flex , not much but just enough to keep the tyres in contact with the road . Look at the swingarm and frame , up and down very stiff , side to side not so much , just enough to allow a bit of movement , in other words - controlled flex .

This, its designed to work as part of the suspension system.

I thought Agostini retired long time ago. :pot: :imaposer:


He does not count, having ridden mostly on 500 triples agains British singles. He was lucky to amass his titles during a lull in activity, the end of the British biking industry and before the Japanese awakening.

I think that is unfair as his record still stands and he raced and won on the Isle of Man. He also won on 2 strokes and four strokes. :pot:

Yip, I was just teasing, he is the number one rider of all time, especially if you consider his IOM participation. :thumleft:

Thank you to us older guys Hailwood and Agostini is like Marquez and Rossi today is to the younger guys. I still believe if Rossi had stayed with Honda he would be GOAT.

No, it's the one sort of detractor against Marc Marques, like Hamilton he just stays with the wealthiest team. Clever, yes, but no real test.

Rossi went to Yamaha when many ignorant people said that Yammie has no chance, and he wiped the floor with the opposition.

OK, going to Duke was a mistake, and a bit of a career-ender.

Let MM go race with at least two other brands, before he can claim to be close to the GOAT.

Bullshit, staying with a brand and keeping it winning is goat on its own. Especially if no one else is competitive on the bike. 

MM is at least better that VR, since he raced and beat VR. VR raced and beat Biaggi….  Something my grandma could have done too :imaposer:  VR wins came from a lean period in GP.  Sport Pienaar beker tye. Nie Currie Cup tyd nie.

He also raced in an era when he could compete in more than one class on the same day.  Many of the modern era riders like VR, MM and others could have doubled their championship tally if they could also race in two classes on the same day.

Biaggi would buckle the modern riders' knees by just staring at them.

Please do not compare something as distinguished as motorcycle racing to rugby.

A parable teaches a moral lesson through it's telling, why would rugby be in a parable?? Incomparable.

Rugby is so colonial. We should move away from it, and as a big supporter of inclusivity in SA society, you should denounce rakbie.

Never been a fan of MM93, but you simply cannot deny he is gifted.
Whereas other golden riders like Lorenzo pitched into the Motogp, competing against VR46 that was still supreme, MM came into the scene where the reign of VR was starting  to decline.
It was inevitable that MM would be controversial, this young guy that grew up, go through the ranks, and ultimately compete (and win) against his childhood hero.
VR was a peoples champ. and still is for many.
MM do not have the charm. But he has the talent.
MM can be criticized  for being very assertive, but that is racing. There is only one winner.
Simoncelli and VR was also aggressive, but the crowds will more easily forgive these charming guys.
