MotoGP 2018

Recommended Posts

I have my Video Pass and I am going to 'sideload' MotoGP on an Amazon FireStick (whatever that means) - or at least try before I use the computer as a media player like last year.

Did you see the new rule changes? Everyone has to have airbags and if the race is stopped at more than 75% there is no re-start (in MotoGP class).

So everyone is having to use Dainese, Alpinestars, or RS Taichi?  I don’t know of any other brands with airbags yet.

All I can say is my one and hopefully only track crash was a non event due in part to my air vest.

Well no I guess I can't stop there and will add that I have lots of experience about tire grip but that in the wet it's still a crap shoot and even with the best rubber it's kinda a mystery to me?

Im a bit to old to heal up well so I'm thinking I still seem to have enough time left to just pass on the wet stuff.

I haven't been on a track the last two seasons but the last time it was wet I think I did and it was boring and nerve racking since I didn't want to crash.

Astars and Dainese are licensing their tech to the other manufacturers.

I knew Taichi had a suit that would accept the Tech-Air system, but didn't know anyone was using the D-air from Dainese.

Moto3 was good too.

Moto2 had an interesting 'mechanical'. I've never seen anything like it.

From this image it looks like there are other leather suits still in use.

I’d read it was available, but whether anybody’s actually using it is another matter.

The Fish before the Fish lives in the Nevada desert and rides a very old IT 465 in jeans.
