And it would appear that basic reading isn't yours either. Both 2018 Yamaha riders are higher in the championship than the top Suzuki....

Because it so happened the fastest Suzuki rider had a DNF out of two races. Drawing any conclusions on results of two races ... do you teach hypocrisy somewhere? I'd like to come and take a course.

I didn't draw any conclusions, Synn did by saying the Suzuki right now is better than the 2018 Yamaha. We have only had 2 races in 2018, so what else do you want me to base my statement on?

Also, Rossi scored 0 points in Argentina, which the last time I checked is the same amount of points scored as a DNF and is still ahead of Rins. Do you believe otherwise?

I believe no statistics can be built on just two events.

Definitely good for Suzuki.
It could work...Suzuki should sign him for a one year deal....see how it get on with the bike and with Rins....then decide to extend or not...

I even think Suzuki should go so far as to make JLo ride for free, or nearly free, for a year...Save Suzuki some money, and this puts all the pressure on JLo to deliver....

Or are you saying that Rossi sucks ass when it comes to feedback and bike development?
Itís a little foggy, refresh my memory at which point in your utterly forgettable non career as a back marker did you become an authoritative voice in motogp prototype development...

The Suzuki riders are both happy with the new bike and praise the new engine which, combined with their superior handling makes it a great package while the Yamaha riders have said multiple times that they are lagging behind in electronics and need to hire more engineers ASAP. Zarco discarded the ill fated 2017 bike and went straight back to the 2015 bike.

I know I canít expect much from the chief burger flipper for McLaren, but this even surpasses the utterly moronic post you made about spec electronics the other day.

Some people are just not meant to be smart. Accept you are one of those and stop writing checks with your fingers your brain cannot cash.

I like this line of reasoning. How long can you ride the coat tails of past success?

What have you done for me lately?

He burned Ducati for millions is the last thing he did.

How does he have any huge value at this point, especially considering he's competing against younger riders who aren't asking for millions?

How about he's been awesome every year of his career other than on a Ducati?

Suzuki should be thanking their lucky stars to have a rider of his caliber.
