Satellite bikes are only going to collect the same general data as the factory bikes. Moreover the data they collect is specific to the individual riders, their riding styles, seat positions, fairing specs, suspension settings, tire choices, etc., all of which is colored by the differences between year models, which to a reasonable mind, would not appear to have that much value; case in point, look at how the factory Yamahas are flailing away whilst Zarco makes them look like crap. If one assumes (and I don't) that there is an agreement to share data between two competing teams, it doesn't appear to have helped the factory team.

My question was simply, is there in fact such an agreement? If you can't reply without losing your shit, then step aside and let some less labile person answer.
Little Wally, you still don't get the benefits to running multiple spec machines. You get additional rider feedback in real world operating conditions.

I would have thought you would get more valuable or at least different feedback from the likes of Zarco or Petrucci than the test riders, and it seems like a way of getting more testing done by actual race riders which is much restricted now compared to a decade ago.

That's my exact point.

Not sure why Wally has such a problem understanding this.

I'd rather my feedback come from satellite riders on current spec machines than a test rider who becomes a backmarker during a wild card appearance. Though in fairness Michele Pirro has always acquitted himself rather well during his Wild Card appearances. But Nakasuga was abysmal on the Yamaha when he would Wild Card.

It’s Yamaha’s boneheaded decision to have a heavily Japan centric development program. Even HRC wised up and hired Bradl. Yamaha needs to test more in Europe with Euro riders who know the circuits, Unless 2/3rds of the races are moved to Japan.

I almost doubt they would bother doing that. Seems too logical.

Solution is to make JLo the Yamaha test rider and give him some wildcard rides in Europe.....he can then take a year out and still be associated to the factory for the future....

Or he can get booted back to Moto 2 so he can relearn how to ride since I don't know what he would do on the Yamaha after being so fucked up by the Ducati.

While I would actually love to see J.Lo on the Triumphs, recent history has not been kind to riders moving down to Moto2.
