I Ride: 2016 Honda Blade Repsol SP
Hello from New York

Hey everyone, just wanted to introduce myself. New to the forum and looking forward to the discussions! I am an avid GP fan from New York. I am also a pretty seasoned rider and a riding instructor. I ride a 2016 Repsol SP among other things with two wheels.

Marc uses a special tire compound made from the tears of other riders.

Welcome maybe you could solve our oldest on going debating. How does one back it into a corner? Chose your answer wisely as it will seal what side of the flame war you are on.

I was on your side on how to do it. A smidge of front brake and a controlled amount of throttle. No ice shaken not stirred.

The commentators asked a really good question for once. Is the air bag in Marcs leathers set to the MM setting? How does it not go off every session.

Good question. I’m interested in how Marquez avoids tearing tendons and ligaments jolting elbows and knees into the tarmac. Special leathers, or a body like a gymnast? Insanley strong yet flexible.
