exactly... and no matter... no matter how good the 4 strokes get.... in my eyes ... the old strokers are still the definition of a Grand Prix machine....

IMO the damn GP bikes should be on the ragged edge and require unbridled pure talent to ride. I say 1000cc, no TC.
I think you may have just described the Ducati??

Let's see ... two guys who've never ridden the bike ... and they're paid by Yamaha ... yeah, I'd say that was an unbiased opinion.

Okay, let's try and put the cynicism away for juuussst a minute...

Who says it's NOT the best GP bike ever built? The '09 Yamaha is lapping tracks faster than any bike in history, FAR faster than any 500 ever went, and it seems almost anyone who jumps on it is able to go consistently fast on it...

So how much better could a bike be, and which one in history was better? :confused:

Lower laptimes equals best ever, pretty simple equation. Most fun to watch? Not to me. Coolest sounding? Tossup but I prefer the smokers still.

Best bike tho? Yeah, it's the best bike.
