I tip my hat to Honda or any team that wins regardless of the manufacturer because in the end I may never be able to perform at a fraction the level these guys do on a daily basis. I have the utmost respect for every team, rider, and machine.

The IOMTT is one of my favorite races to watch but I do have to admit that it is a riders race. With almost 38 miles per lap at over 200 turns, riders on Hondas and Suzuki passing each other in the draft back and forth multiple times on the same straight to me shows one bike having a fraction of a HP advantage or slightly better chassis geometry would only matter if you ran solo runs and a perfect ride.
I guess the top four riders at last year's Isle picked 2012 CBRs for some crazy reason

I'm pretty sure the team has more say so than the rider. Team picks and preps the bikes, rider rides them.




Honda has more money to invest into their GP bikes than most. This is why they are crying about the suggested mandatory control ECU. Electronics are the name of the game now in MotoGP. MM has amazing talent but the Honda does have better top end and corner acceleration.

I just wanted to say i agree with him. Honda is a better bike.
In every way. I mean what does the Honda lack?? To me its perfect.
I've never ridden. With aids like TC or wheelie controls but i have no complaints
Honda is the most reliable and best built IMO.

Honda is a great bike. But their GP bike is a total opposite of their road bike. MM bleeds talent. If Honda would create a streetbike that mimicks the abilities of their GP bike, Rea would be very dominant in WSBK but it's not so Johnny only has the occasional podium finish instead of being there every race.

First TT race down. Looks like Honda won't be sweeping the top.of the podium this year with John injured. BMW is way fast.
