So what's the real story mate, do you know? I hear there were quite a few technical issues at the Misano test, suppose it is related?

Whilst I have no insight into the reasons, this is a real blow because I believe that Randy would be a real asset to the team. Always a shame when the 'legal' card get played in our sport. :(

Reading Randy's statement I got the impression that RC were planning on putting illegal parts on the bike as he referred to a risk to his reputation and safety.

It was the most odd thing I have ever read from a professional athlete. Then again, being locked up in my house for the last 3 months has also been rather odd.

Can't be good.

Well, it is a possibility. How embarrassing for you if it turned out to be true. Checked your sources yet?

Our Tasmanian member is on another planet with his wit.
To a simpleton like myself, it just comes across as being a smart-arse, or a shit stirrer. Either way, not cool, and not adding anything to the thread.

To get things back on track:

It's another case of not knowing your audience...or your target in this case.

Mac Japan and Germany ( the most prevalent auto/Motorcycle manufacturing companies in the world) are investing in Hydrogen , a limitless energy source. YES it isnt as efficient as electric but then again neither is gasoline. and if we a never ending resource of gasoline/oil electric cars ect would have never been developed at all. When the intrastructure of hydrogen is finished so shall electric vehicles= too many problems in daily use as a whole.

I gues you don’t understand the inefficiencies of generating electricity.

Yet, he did not get the Barni ride that people were suggesting (after RK tested on the Barni Ducati), and Melandri got that ride. There must be more to the story!
Krummenacher is surely a bit quick to open his mouth. Even winning the championship, he probably lost his Bardahl ride after publicly complaining that the team purposely gave him a slower bike than his team mate Caricasulo. Shortly after he back-pedaled and kind of apologized for his comments. Not a good strategy to make friends!! Now he kind of did the same with MV. Not very smart.

But, I have difficulties believing he would come up with such strong accusations, in order to have a legal base to get out of a contract, without having a solid contract on the other side. Unless Barni really fucked him. It just seems too random. We probably will never know the true story.

He really may end up on a E-bike. Seems a bit the category for washed up racers....
