No shit, I think all people who have fallen off a bike realize it’s not a controllable event. Some people who have done it a lot may be able to make it look like a controllable event once the speed comes down, but that’s not every time

It may just be talk, but Marquez says the new bike is already ahead of the 18 version. He is putting in these times while keeping in mind not doing any more damage to the shoulder and in considerable pain. They moved up the surgery because he is in so much pain he can’t sleep. He will do Jerez test to gather data , then it’s off to surgery.

If that's the case and he is riding that hampered, the rest of the field might as well admit they're fighting for second again.

I've had a shoulder reconstruction, its hard at first but I was able to return to full training without many issues within 3 months from memory. The difference being that I didn't have access to the level of surgeons or physios that Marquez will have and also a team of people who will push and make sure he does everything right during his rehab.

Case in point: Mugello 2013.

So this horrible Honda is surprisingly fast in hands of Nakagami and Lorenzo. Ducati is the best bike my foot. Why people do not use their own brain for thinking?

People were discussing the 2018 Honda. Naka and JL are riding the 2019 Honda.

Bautista jumped on the GP18 at PI and suddenly was battling for the win the whole race. Dovi has never even been close to challenging for the title (even while his teammate, Stoner, destroyed the field on the Repsol Honda in 2011). The Ducati is a really good bike.
