must not be huge moto fans here? This seems to be a hot issue lately. I'm all for the days where the back tires slid around, wheelies, and some wild racing....

pfft. No I just wasn't online yet.


Yeah I miss the old days you know, when things like this:


were a regular occurence. Bring it back!

Speaking of that I know AMA doesn't have the same technology as GP, but you gotta respect Aaron Yates for being one of the top riders and having no traction control. Unless that has changed this year. He was controlling it all by the wrist. that's what I like to see.

didn't know yates didn't have anything to help him. Yes, i think we need to bring back the old types of racing. I actually didn't bother to watch the last part of 2007 motogp season. Bored with the races, one guy out front due to his bike having 7 gears and others having 6 or something.

I just want to see them bring back the human element a bit more, but then again it's good to see them keep improving the technology also. torn on it, but in the end I want to see some wild bikes and wild racing again...

yup the only aid the should have is there right hand eh!

Prolly wasn't a shit hot idea to change engine size and rules on tyres in the same year tho IMO.

let's see what this year brings us in the way of close racing.

Does not matter what happens with riding aids, Stoner will repeat


Also I think @ 250hp you need some type of aids otherwise it will be just crash fest

biga that's why they are in Motogp though. You and me would need all that stuff, but in my opinion they need to keep it raw and pure to a point.

Stoner repeat it? Only if his bike is on roids...if his roids go away or other bikes get injected with the same roids then I don't know if he will. He's a great rider, but it was obvious that his bike had a huge advantage over rossi. going down the straight away it looked like a GSXR 1000 blowing an R1 away down the strait. He surely had more power and a lot more the first few races.

I am all for less electronics and more rider skill. GP was BORING last year. WSBK was pretty entertaining at time though.

You do know that even the 500 had riding aids.

I don't think there ever will be a GP bike without riding aids, I thinks most people refer to traction control as the major riding aid they want removed. And even that can be turned on or off / up or down depending on the riders preferentials.

And the Ducati is on roids.


Being that this is Suzuki site I will say would love to see #65 Caprix win and do well this year

yes the ducati is on roads and the other makers need to step it up. It was boring watching the ducati have such an advantage. They closed the gap on the advantage towards the end, but by then it was over anyway.

I'm waiting for Spies to get on the zuk... I read an article that he wrote the other day about him riding it and being about a second off the others times. I'm a Mladin fan, but once he's in GP or Mladin retires, I'm going for spies hands down.

SPIES FTW!!!!!!!!!!11!!1!!!

He's going to have alot of work to do, but hopefully they give him the equipment to be competitive. No doubt about it that he is a hell of a rider. But being on the Yosh Zuk doesn't hurt.
