Default Re: Hayden to remain with Honda

The problem with being the #1 rider with HRC is you must use the equipment they give you. This year Nicky has been seriously hampered with Honda's new, undeveloped chassis. He has had to use it even though the old chassis was better. To test and develop during the season is grossly unfair to Nicky, but you do it HRC's way or sayonara. I hope it doesn't cost him this year's championship. The advantage next year hopefullywill be that Honda is way ahead on developing an 800cc bike. Let's hope so (remember when MotoGp started, Honda was at least 2-3 years ahead of everyone else). Now here's my dream.....Nicky on a Bridgestone shod Duc kicking Honda's and Vale's Michelin equipped mega techno toys. That would be truly classic, even better than Eddie beating Wayne and HRC Honda on his Kawasaki during the 1980's AMA Superbike series.

I can't think of anything that hasn't been thought of already.

Uh? surely your crazy. A GSXR-750 is not going to handle any better than the GSXR-1000. Why would it? Weight you might say? right because at 6.6 lbs heavier that really effects handling... ??



I'm sorry but I don't see whats superior about the 750's at all. The 600's and 1000's are so close in terms of weight and handling the only difference is the power, so the question is how much do you want? personaly a 600 seems like plenty enough to me.

Monomania and delusions of grandeur. Par for the course.



FWIW, I do NOT see a big push for 800cc sportbikes for the foreseeable future. 600's are a production class - if I'm not mistaken, MotoGP machinery will continue NOT to be. As usual, kpaul is crowing about predictions that haven't come to pass. And probably won't.



My prediction? For the next five years (at least), V-twin sportbikes will outnumber 800cc sportbikes. And kpaul will continue to crow about his perspicacity despite predicting exactly the opposite.

Ever hear of torque? It's nice on the street.

just rev it! torque is just another way of expressing power, so I ment torque as well. I guess I should have said power curve.



I fine it fun to have to rev the crap out of something to make it go. But then I drive a 2-stroke car so I guess I'm used to it.
