Guys like Rossi, Mladin, Edwards, Biaggi and Haga all seem to ride very differently, but are there some rules that they all follow to ride as well as they do? Do the all adhere to some set of basic riding principals? Or are there only vague riding guidelines?

no no no mang.... Stuman is an internet philosopher- only rarely will he start a conversation and actually get involved.

Do look around at other boards other than this one and WERA and you will see his posts have the same style.

Re: Great Riders?? (Stuman)

The mind is a powerful thing! I think all racers of that caliber HAVE TO have a huge level of confidence in their equipment/set-up... period. Guys like these don't think about the "what ifs". I'm not saying they throw caution to the wind either, but in some respect they do.

They just have to ASSUME that the the bike will do what they need it to do. The guys who can make that assumption, while having the skill to compensate for any problems that may arise, go fast. The guys who are more consistent in getting their set-up right have the mental capacity to accept braking later, or getting on the gas sooner. I guess this is why they say that motorcycle racing is roughly 90% mental and 10% the bike.

On a personal note, I can clearly recall the times when I went through a corner and was suprised that I didn't crash... because I was too busy thinking about the wrong things. The races I did that in resulted in lackluster finishes. My best races have been where my mind was focused on simply ATTACKING the track... and not worrying about the "what ifs"... or "oh sh!t, the bike moved a lot there!! Is something wrong??" Confidence in your equipment prevents this, IMO. Unfortunately, finding that zone is easier said than done.

blah, blah, blah, blah, blah......................

Re: Great Riders?? (Stuman)

They all adhere to the track by friction and gravity. Centrifigal force tries to throw them off the track. Now you know.


Should be worth a couple seconds a lap i'd say. Pay me!

Gee Atom how insightful you are. You sure have me pegged, you read me like a book. [/sarcasm]

I was wondering, do you ever post anything worth while or do you just post pictures and links you steal from other boards?

Re: (Stuman)

Turnabout is fair play.

What would you say has been your most WORTHWHILE post here on Speedzilla, Stu?

It's alright Stu - I forgive you.
You are a social butterfly (not that there is anything wrong with that), but I have noticed that you do not take a solid stance on anything. In fact I can't recall seeing you offer any solid advice to anyone here at SPDZLLA, so when you get to the end of this post feel free to answer up.

All your questions (some of which are good) are all open ended...

Re: (AtomTan)

So Atom did you perhaps read my responses on any of those threads you posted? Maybe you missed my response on the throttle control thread …

“I don't really use the throttle any different in the dirt then I do on the street. My goal is still pretty much the same, I want to roll the throttle on all the way through a corner. In the dirt you can get a little more aggressive with the throttle and use it to steer the bike, but the goal of accelerating through a corner is the same for me.”

Or some of the other responses I have posted on the other 15 boards I have been posting on for the past few months.

I don’t just post crap for the sake of posting. If someone asks me for help or my opinion I have no problem posting. But I don’t see the need for me to repeat or confirm some of the great information that others have posted on my threads. No need to repeat what others have already said.

999 – Check out some of the threads I have started on this board. You be the judge if they are worthwhile or not. Some of the threads lead to some interesting stuff, if you can weed through the crap about why I am posting.

I’ve already stated my motives for posting here, total internet domination, those that stand in my way do so at their peril.
