    The FIM has handed Iannone an eighteen month suspension from 17 December 2019. The way things are going he may not actually miss all that much.

    On a Motorcycle you're penetrating distance, right along with the machine!! In a car you're just a spectator, the windshields like a TV!!

    Don't read the MatMaladin link below that article. Made me sick.

    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    I was just thinking Yesterday. I'm about the age Hitler was when he shot himself. Puts into perspective how little I've done with my life.

    Those bikes are purpose built for that racing, if not specifically that track. And that rider is a legend in that class of racing.

    Seen that video many times before and it always is a laugh, but for sure a bike built for the job.

    Tyres are only as wide as they need to be, if you look at the corner speed of a moto3 vs a motogp bike, for most corners the moto3 guys are going faster due to the way they are being ridden to maximise lap time. For example if you fitted wider tyres and rims to a moto3 bike it would probably end up slower as they wouldn't allow it to carry the lines needed to put in a fast lap. I'd say that Japanese speedway bike would weigh half what that sports bike does, has all its steering geometry set up to navigate that circuit perfectly. Horses for courses, if the roles were reversed and that Speedway bike was at Motegi, he'd struggle to put in a time withing 30 seconds of the sports bike.

    Here's an interesting article explaining some of the math:
