  1. One thing I’ve read about is that DOT certification is a manufacturer assertion.
  2. I love this topic. I too am focusing on my turning ability, specifically Quick Turning. There’s an article where Keith says that learning to QT solves all of the SRs. I’m striving to become a disciple of that.
  3. Good points in the video. I saw a video recently that examined the same riders on different bikes change their technique (Lorenzo was an example) and basically concluded that the technique is subordinate to the bike, rider, situation. This video misses being explicit on this point and it’s possible that someone may get the incorrect idea that they have to do things the way Rossi or Marquez does it. This person would struggle from the lack of a good grasp of the fundamentals and the technology of riding. I think the video blogger is going in that direction however and he himself clearly stands above average in his understanding.
  4. Clearly I read the OP too fast. And since RE-reading it, I see now how the answer totally FITS. Thank you.
  5. Are the product endorsers really buying advertising space on the bikes or are you guys actually using their products to win races? Like parts and Motor Oils? For example: there’s a rumor that Jardine put their badging on the Honda CBR600RR exhaust for the American Honda team’s Formula Extreme bike (about 2003-2005) but it was actually an Akrapovic exhaust. How much funding comes from products and how much from team owners? Does a team owner really see a financial Return on the Investment or do they do it for the love of the sport? For example: allegedly Michael Jordan got out of team ownership in racing because of the financial losses.
  6. You can certainly practice this off the bike first and then move to doing it on the bike statically. Work it into your riding when it feels comfortable. If you do the training right, you may notice you will begin doing it "automagically".
  7. It seems they have to deal with a poor reputation as well. Note that the article was published Nov 12, 2018 and I didn't find anything newer. https://www.roadracingworld.com/news/asma-bans-icon-helmets-citing-safety-concerns/
  8. Day 2 of having Xbox & Ride3 in the house. After persevering with getting the system setup (going to make some other changes later) we finally were able to actually play the game. During everyone's first ride, we all managed some creative ways to crash the Panigale at Laguna Seca. Once beyond that stage, a selection of bikes opens up as well as a selection of tracks. My son is now riding the Kawasaki KX450 Supermoto at Road America and doing quite well! With the suggested lines turned on, I hope that he gets some ideas about lines; it's a subject I've introduced thrice, but it may have been too early for him. We'll see if the game acts as the intended learning aid. I'm also over the idea of the controllers being too complicated, but that's also a factor of my doing some outside self-improvement work, not just game related. I'm less than $300 into this deal and if all fails, at least we have a streaming media and Blu Ray Player in the family room now to replace the devices I wasn't too happy about. And hopefully, Just Dance 2020 becomes another family fun activity...it's quite a workout!
  9. I remember when that happened. It was also shared on Social Media.
  10. The MM93 video was blocked by Dorna 😞
  11. Ever consider that Leg Danglers are using their arms to support themselves? I know...sounds "wrong", right? Well Keith Code found that even high level riders are making basic errors, which is why everyone starts CSS at Level 1.
  12. My small contribution (and a little bit of speculation) is that Rossi started doing it around the time he began using Mini-moto for training. It also appears that he uses it to block a passing rider.
  13. Do they offer the game as a PC download? What if I own the XBox version, do I get a discount on the PS4 or PC version? Sorry for the questions, it’s been A REALLY LONG TIME since I’ve done video games. I own a retro Atari and retro SNES (the updated ones released a couple years ago), just to put in context. Played a few times for nostalgia and now they’re on the shelf.
  14. The descriptions that I’ve read from others hint very strongly that it’s possible to make technical errors when it’s in the Sim mode. I expect that in Arcade mode you can get away with anything.
