Hey guys,

I've just uploaded my first video in a new series on MotoGP, WSBK, etc. I want to discuss these racing series a bit more.

This is an experiment, tell me what you think Smile

What is your background other than a fan of racing? i.e Do have access to the riders, engineers and team managers.

If the answer is 'I'm just passionate about WSBK and MotoGP' then you better have a character that is engaging and interesting at the very least.

I managed 2 minutes of your video and got distracted.
I also noted your Red bias so you're alienating all those Honda, Yamaha, etc etc fans.

No intro music..no logo.

You are somebody who has too much spare money and time on their hands.

On yer bike mate.
<<<<<These are just a few things some people will think and say.

Ha, thanks for the feedback! Very Happy

I am passionate about MotoGP and WSBK, and I spend some time per year at track days. I've ridden with Simon Crafar and been on track with Stefan Bradl, Manuel Poggiali, and others. Then there is the usual fan stuff meeting riders during pit walk, etc.

That thing about attention span is interesting. I feel there are at least two approaches: trying to be as flashy as possible or just being a bit more mellow which I find more suitable for analysis.

About that red bias: yeah Twisted Evil As you can tell from the content though, I try to be objective.

I thought about intros and logos, but what for? It only takes away from the content.

One question: How does this video make me look like I have too much spare money and time?

Maybe trackdays in Losail Cartagena and Bahrain has biased my opinion of you.

As I'm happy to be proven wrong.....prove me wrong.

I'm also of the opinion that the vast majority vloggers offer nothing of any value to me, then again I'm not easily impressed.

You do know that if you want your channel to be successful you should be ignoring people like myself as you would be too busy enjoying what you're doing, and also when you are 100% honest in your reasons then the channel becomes a success, but if numbers are important to you then to hold the attention of the average youtuber you require either excellent content or a dynamic personality.

There, if you ask anymore of me I will be sending an invoice. Smile

I've posted another video, this time asking whether the Panigale V2 can be successful in 2018 WSBK:

I'm using the same thread as for my first video, so I don't spam the forum with my gibberish Laughing

Hey there! Very Happy

With the Qatar test over I couldn't help but enter the discussion on winglets in MotoGP. Do they make sense or not? Question Here's what I think:

Just a couple of points. BMW pulled factory support, hence the slide in results. Also Aprilia didn't release the RSV4 in response to the S1000RR, it was released in the UK in 2009 the S1000RR was 2010. Why do BMW need to do well in WSBK? They seem to be selling enough bikes without it. No point for them in pumping money in until the new bike arrives in 2019/2020.

Regarding Jorge Lorenzo, I think this year 2018 he will definitely have better results than in 2017 but still not as good as Dovi.

In my opinion the only one able to put Marquez in problems will be again Dovi.

Vinales, Rossi, Zarco, Pedrosa, Lorenzo... I don't think they have serious options to win Rolling Eyes
