I'm not surprised you didn't notice any of the above. Or did you choose to ignore it?
He seemed to be fairly happy to discuss bike racing in a fairly informed fashion before people started calling him silly names when he posted opinions different than theirs. Holypuck who was an excellent new poster has left after being vilified for talking bike racing rather than taking a stand on something which occurred both more than a decade ago and substantially off forum, which he may not unreasonably have felt was not of great relevance to him, particularly posting in what is not his first language.

I hadnít realised JPS was a personal friend of yours and I presume (not something I like to do in this matter) of Jumkieís which explains his vehemence; I have every reason to believe Jumkie is very much a friend worth fighting for.

Some newer members have chosen to involve themselves in the old conflict which is their choice, but we could perhaps let posters like Holypuck who wanted to just talk about racing do so.

Just watched FP2 again. Vinales’ drive out of corners is absolutely sensational.
This might just be Assen magic, but something tells me Yamaha made a step forward that they are not too keen on shouting about.

Maybe, but that doesn't give a licence to klog.

No matter what happens this weekend, I'm not assigning much importance to it because Yamaha (and Rossi, more than anything) is always extremely fast here. I'm keen to see how they go in the next few races.

I've had conversations with jps off the forum. We just chat, random things. He likes to fuck with me. He has proven to me that his intent is good. He is a good man.

Holypuck is such a great member. I hope he hasn't been driven away by what goes on here. His opinions are great. Always very insightful.

I donít disagree. The real test will be when we see how close they are to Marquez at Sachsenring.

However, Rossi is a master of verbal and on track sandbagging. But if you listen carefully, you can hear when he is genuinely frustrated (As opposed to Vinales, who just whines all the time). After the Barcelona test, Rossi was all ďOh, looks like we have the same bike till BrnoĒ. Thatís not the same as what he was saying last year when he was actually pissed off about the chassis direction.

Sure, he hasnít won at Assen 8 times for no reason, but it is also Vinales who is looking good, and while it is a Yamaha track it is not the only one, and he hasnít looked very good pretty much anywhere since the enforced early tire change last year.

If Michelin have come up with a tire which better suits the Yamaha they are to be commended. Maybe they have got the control ecu working better though.

He's looked good in free practice at various races...but not in the race itself.

All tyre allocations for the entire season have been frozen at the start of the season.
Any improvements are on the constructors, by Michelin.
