ya fair enough, I wanna clarify that it's not personal, I just think that edwards is an incredible rider and he can't perform 'cause the bike isn't on the level.
Rossi has the same bike, but he's above the level. and can make up for it being behind. Edwards wont win a race while Rossi is his teammate, that's a grim reality.
Keep in mind tho, Edwards was the only rider to haul in points at every race this past season. and I have never seen him outride the tires, the man knows consistancy, and doesn't make mistakes (reminds me of Chandler in that way) I would rate him as a better rider than Hayden, Sete might be faster for a lap or 2 at a time on equal machinery, but not over race distance... Melandri... what can I say, that kid is fast.
The yamaha is a fast bike to be sure, but it's not on the level of the honda, possibly not even on the level of the ducati, impossible to tell that without them being on the same rubber tho.
anyways, cheers all, and peace, I'm not trying to start anything, just trying to peacefully disagree.
