interesting thoughts, here's my take on them.
"1. Mandate the rear to be grooved (as in F1),"
meh, race bikes belong on slicks(opinion) but I feel like they would do the same thing the F1 guys did and make it so the grooves wore off quickly and became slicks again.
"2. Mandate the width of the rear tire limiting outright traction and durability,"
I believe they already do this
"3. Guide Bridgestone to stop the development of the rear till the front catches up,"
one of the first things that always comes out in interviews from first time riders is how spectacular the grip is especially in the front and on the brakes.
"4. Increase capacity and HP so that it will shred the rear faster, yet unlike the 800cc machines lower the corner speed improving safty."
I love this idea but I think the days of lower corner speeds may be gone. which doesn't hurt my feelings a bit. again this is something that could be taken care of by eliminating the nanny on fuel consumption. give them more fuel capacity and then there is no need for the bike to reduce power on its own and then there will be power in reserve for somebody to pull a "rossi" and make up a shit ton of time on sheer testicular fortitude.
"5. Maybe prevent tire technology improvement altogether as Rossi explained tires traction hardly changes over the course of the race making tire management obsolete."
I don't even know where to go with this as it could be fixed easily by limiting gadgetry and I don't believe for a sec that this is a true statement.
