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 was a flop for Honda , handling wasnt very good at all , the expansion chambers were made of aluminium , they tended to become brittle and would crack .

Yes indeed , I remember the problem first arising or being diagnosed in the 90's on Wayne Rainey's YZR500 , according to Rainey the bike had no feel , he would fall off with no warning , it took a while to work out that Yamaha had made the frame too stiff .

So, we still wait patiently for the announcement of a ride for Darryn Binder for next year.  There are now precious few seats available and the announcement is expected at the Thursday before the coming Misano race next week.

MotoGP:

The second Yamaha in the ex-Petronas team.  Lots of rumours, with ne fron runners on a daily basis.  Darryn Binder, Toprak Rastwhatever, Jake Dixon and so on.

Moto2:

Aspar:  One seat not confirmed, but Jake Dixon is mentioned.
MV Augusta Forward:  Two seats available, but Corsi and Baldasarri rumoured.
NTS RW Racing:  One seat available.  This is the team Stephen Odendaal raced for, for a few years.  Pretty much a shoestring bidget team.
Speed Up Racing:  One seat.  Aldequer from the European Championship is rumoured.

 Waiting .... waiting .... :patch:

I fear a little roll before another roll and face plant in the kitty litter.  8)

PS. I know you are referring to your version of GOAT not the popular accepted one.

Is it just me or is there an echo in here?

I like the red bikes and Bagnaaier is showing some serious potential, would like if he can keep up with his late season charge even thou Quattro will probably take the title this weekend.

He believes GOAT stands for Graveltrapping On All Tracks.
