It has ever been thus. The Gardner bike was unrideable, one of the true greats Eddie Lawson and Erv Kanamoto sorted it somewhat. Mick Doohan has straight out said a major part of his role was preventing the Honda engineers from "improving" his bike.

What’s the weather like at Valencia for Sunday? Lazy, can’t be bothered to look right now.

If it’s wet, Rins for the win!

WTF happened to Fabio? Is he the new witch that gets dissolved in water?

Jack Miller if it is wet, but not in most other circumstances.

Rins for the race otherwise, but his team-mate for the title.

Kanemoto - always been a hero of mine. It took real balls to go against the established norms. The Japanese are famously homogeneous team players. Mifune's character Musashi Miyamoto was popular in the film world, but real life rebels in Japanese culture are a rarity.

What's going on with Bagnaia. After winning his little contest with Zarco for factory contract he has been constantly outperformed by latter.

Great race. Mir was just . . . beautiful. Funny, in that Suzuki steadily improving, eventually coming to the fore, was pretty predictable, as has been Yamaha's gradual decline over the last 5 years.

And man, listening to Brivio's voice right after the race, as it's all hitting him was really heartwarming. Always been an especially outstanding character in the paddock. Never heard a bad word against him. Congrats to him and the team.

Pol did great - all things considered. Liking him more and more. Genuinely gracious in post race interview.

Nakagami - just so solid.

Binder amazing after the penalty slow-down.

Sup homies, hope everyones doing well.
Did Rins or Mir say anything about that pass? seemed fishy. Rins was at least a gear too high. Running wide with no engine brake or "change to map 2"?

Yeah agree big time about Suzuki...great to see them up there. Even to the average TV viewer that thing can turn! Really like Mir and Rins and Brivio...and the bike even looks awesome. Had to post this pic...love it.

What is happening at Yamaha and Ducati for that matter...they've just crumbled...

Vinales maybe regretting leaving Suzuki??
