I'll say this for the sake of real newcomers: there are many threads in the Forum that are not directly race related (for instance, we could have a thread titled "Guess who's Jum's new Alias") , and one must be able to enter the forum and read that thread without being unduly informed about the latest race result in the title of another thread! Uh? Not so difficult to understand. And what's the use, anyway, of adding the word "Spoilers" when the spoilers are not inside the thread, but in the title itself?




Especially as some members don't have the oppertunity to watch the races live due to their geological location worldwide and have no choice but to watch up to a week later.

I must admit if I came on hear and saw the title "the king is back spoiler" and hadn't seen the race I would have been pissed off.

I can see why that is the case, but what's the point in having two riders in a team if one of them gets favoured? Surely it should be equal treatment for both, though I know that's not the case. I mean I should talk I watch F1 and there are even more blatant favourites there.

don't confuse this with f1. both guys at all times have everything available.its just that the m1 not only evolved but also moved a fraction away from what rossi likes in a bike (braking hard and deep while still being nimble) to what jorge likes (long and insanely fast mid corner speed wide lines). it seems the rossi crew have found a way to set the bike up so that rossi can play his strengths to the fullest again. maybe krop or arrab can enlighten us a bit here what was actually changed but it seems like that was more a case of setting the bike up (suspension settings,geometry changes and what have you) for his style instead of the bike itself being an obstacle at all.

and to that end, riding a motorcycle is deeply personal in comparison to driving a car. there is really only one way to drive a car fast, but there are many different ways to extract fast lap times out of a bike.

Those that have had a crack at the Ducati might disagree, except one, maybe.

Jum, in this case the dumbness is an intentional feature of the character: ca va sans dire. Even if you are not the author of this little fiction, I do not believe for a second that a contrived character like VROSSI46 and a couple of others in this forum can ever be real... You got to credit me with a bit of salt as well.

Thanks you guys for explaining that to me, much appreciated. Having never ridden a bike myself I can't understand all this stuff in the same way as someone who has, clearly.

J4rn0 im not convinced this is a sock puppet. Many boppers are certified insane. Plus look at the forum history of usernamed. U will find many a variation with VR46/Valentino/Rossi etc. in the name. U on the other hand was very clever.
