    Re: MotoGP 2019 (spoilers)


    All three races were faaaaaan fuckin tastic.

    We had a little GP party at Steve Heider's... of the 10 guys I predicted to finish top 10, 8 of em were in there. Before the race when everyone was saying "Crashlow is gonna crash!" I said (only half jokingly) "BULLSHIT! HE'S GONNA FINISH ON THE PODIUM! THIRD PLACE!"

    Well, I shoulda gone with my gut and put that in my official predictions. Instead I said he'd finish 6th. Doh!

    But... awesome race.

    Cal might be my favorite guy on the grid.

    His ankle break was no joke. Put him in a dark place for awhile.

    Didn't do too bad here....I'll take credit for calling Crutchlow right in spite of his injury recovery.

    It extends all the way through practice sessions too. I watched pretty much every lap of the race weekend and Dovi had me fooled. SOB was sandbagging the entire time save one lap of Qualifying to get himself on the front row. Absolutely masterful race management.

    Got around to watching the Moto 3 race last night...it's really unreal what those guys have go through where the slipstream is so critical. If you're leading the race, you legit need 3 seconds minimum to not get hauled in on the straight. The best position you can be in going into the final corner is actually 2nd (assume a decent run to the stripe, Argentina need not apply.)

    Moto 2 was my favorite race. That run Luthi put on had me pumped up, I watched the last two laps on my feet. That coupled with the battle for 3rd right behind them really made for an awesome show. Can we just go to Argentina now please?

    This is bicycle racing. Cut the speed to a fraction, remove all protective clothing, multiply # of bikes by 4.

    Hi Paul.

Or you can run corner speed and use a different gear, so the engine will make the racing more fun for the riders and it makes the battling closer and better, because different riders can work in different ways.

    With the 600 everyone had to use the same lines and the same gears.

    This is true, especially if the moto2 chassis can turn like an R6 or better. The downside of the 675 was that you could not turn it well when really cranked over. So you were limited to the point and shoot line when the R6 could rail. I do miss the torque of the 675 though, and the sound! But I have dropped about 3-4 seconds a lap since going to the R6.

    So before I buy the online pass for MotoGP can anyone confirm it is /isn't a problem playing the video stream from different devices through Comcast?

    Hello again. I kinda expected this so I saved the rest of the quote.

    So Kalex lifted the engine and rotated it back to make the bike tip into corners better, then they made a longer swingarm and less stiff triple clamps, so the bike hooks around the slower corners better.
    I love this stuff.
