I think the sheep are still nervous!!

That was the day of some great racing. I had the pleasure of racing World Superkart with Eddie and Wayne for years after they retired from motorcycles. Two great guys and class acts...Wayne's dad Sandy who passed in 2016 was a really good guy and helped me with my TZ250 engine..Lot's of good memories..
Thanks from Macattack and Blade Runner

I rode an RGV500 ONCE. Worst head shake ever. Gave it right back to the owner. He asked if I would like to go again. I said. NO! LOL!!!

but back in the day the bikes would seem more likely to spit the rider fifty feet in the air without warning.

I should not have brought up MM but it seems he is able to use the electronics better than most.
so by that logic he seems the most dependent on electronics
so it seems his elbow dragging style is somewhat electronic dependent
obviously I could be completely all wrong .
If Marquez had grown up "in the day" he would have been fast "in the day" because he would have learned on those bikes. Stoner would have been the same way. Talent is talent; Marquez would have found a way to push those bikes to their limit too. It's silly to think he couldn't. Rossi was able to, why wouldn't Marquez be able to do the same?

I agree . I was referring to his body position and the current trend to leaning off the bike with the throttle pinned and letting the bike do the work.

I actually think it would take some getting used to if you just time machined into today from 1995. It would be unnerving to me to know you just hold the throttle and trust the bike. I've never hear any motogp racers say this , so again I might be completely wrong.

marquez could kick everyones ass on a flat track bike and flat track course Too IMO

I was also referring to MM strange ability to low side every time now.
can you imagine him in 1990's hanging off the bike and it let go the rear - he'd end up in outer space . again IMO

marc marquez is an enigma I should not have brought him up
