MotoGP: No different front options from Michelin at COTA | MCN

Pecino says, there's possibility in the future Michelin could smuggle the #70 personally to Rossi himself, just to shut him up.

I don't know any radical journos out there more than Pecino. I've never thought that far honestly.

That's classified. You can only see that info on the By Invitation Only Power Slide Shadow site. No Boppers allowed.

YOU figure it out. lol
And yet we hear of certain riders riding the bike with electronics down to a near minimum or inactivated (not just CS who was known for preferring no interference) in order to learn the feel or in some cases because they prefer the lesser intrusion.

Thus the question, for me I wonder how many have ridden them and how close they got to the electronically controlled times?

Of course all this borders on nought anyway as the vast majority of road bikes now have some form of electronics at play anyway but for me, would be an interesting exercise (albeit, as mentioned, likely painful)

The worst thing about the influx of electronics into motor sports at large were that they effectively ended the art of engine design and building. Honda is a great example with their V4 prior to the spec ECU. They could just cover up all of the deficiencies of the engine with electronics.

In many ways it is a 'damned if you do, damned if you dont' type of situation.

If they do not use electronics to control or balance the equipment, the risk is that the equipment will outstrip the capability of the rider/drive and we end up with severe incidents as a result.

On the other hand, bringing in electronics to in some way control the aspects means that the sport seems 'dumbed down' so that the rider/drive has less input and often has to achieve a result that the electronics allow rather than a result of which the package should be capable.

I realise that I hark back to the old days and that technology is here to stay, plus the flow on benefits are sensational as a consumer but man, I do miss the old days
