can you include the MotoGP bikes please?

the track loads fine in testing mode but whenever i try to open a server, my game crashes.

could anybody else open up a server?

brake as deep into the corner as you can, then apply (full) throttle as early as possible without missing the apex (running wide).

nice! first laps feel very good. a bit less lean but much more stability.

if anybody wants to join me, i've opened a suzuka onboard server.

could you tell use the optimum pressure ranges for the tyres, Manu?

Marquez has a much stronger build and he can generate the necessary tyre temperature with his extreme riding style. He is also taller which gives him more leverage.
Gaining 5kg of muscles when you're only 51kg and already a pro athlete (past your prime) cannot be achieved easily, at least not without illegal tricks.

Marco Simoncelli and Valentino Rossi had submitted an informal proposal to the Safety Commission to examine having a combined minimum weight for both bike and rider in MotoGP, just as there currently is in the 125cc class. Their argument was that lighter riders had an unfair advantage, and that by setting a minimum weight, the larger riders would have a better chance of competing.

That's not me saying it, it comes from a couple of pretty competent chaps :)

So yes, in very specific conditions (wet + weird tyres) a lighter rider may have a disadvantage, but overall ...
And even with that, I don't think heavier riders have an advantage when braking or when "manhandling the bike around".
Most of the seat problems can be solved too: unless you require for Dani to be able to put both feet down while on the bike, of course :)
Again you're ignoring the fact that Stout already pointed out:
Yes, less weight is an advantage but only up to a certain point. Dani is past that point, other riders like Rossi would never get close to that point. Michelin would have to give Dani his own special tyres for every so that he can make use of his "advantage".  But even then, a 51kg body operating a MotoGP bike is simpy very close to its physical limit, hence why Dani almost had to retire in the Bridgestone era because his forearms couldn't handle the hard braking. He is also very lucky that Marquez is relatively small as well and that consequently the Honda is still optimized for midget riders (stemming from the 800cc days where Dani was #1).
And no matter how agile these bikes are, changing direction at 250+ km/h takes a lot of effort and it's significantly harder when you have less leverage on the handlebar (shorter limbs) and less control over the CoG of the bike in general.
Adding balast to the bike or Dani gaining some fat would maybe solve the tyre temperature issues but then riding the bike will be even harder for him.

Definitely agree. The suspension and especially the tyre physics in GPB are not refined enough at the moment (I know Piboso is trying, but still it is the truth). At the moment in GPB you can go to the track with the Murasama without TC and you can pretty much attack from corner 1 on without having to worry about warming the tyres... that says enough.
I can't say anything about the Mura but this is definitely not the case for the MotoGP bikes. Tyre pressure/temperature makes a lot of difference in how the tyres grip and not being in the optimal range is clearly noticable.

Please consider including the seperate bikes even if it means a lot of duplicate files.
Apart from the (not so important) visuals, it would be very interesting to see how the winglet downforce affects the bike behaviour in GP Bikes. Would be nice to test how realistic the GPB aero simulation is.

Cool, I've got a few questions about 1.2:
Are the medium and hard tyres still overheating?
Could you "tame" the virtual rider to reduce tankslappers, specifically on the M1?
Will there be two versions of all the bikes now (winglet & no winglet)?

I don't think they have helmet cams, only the regular onboards mounted on the bike.

the mura is a shit bike in general with worse physics data than the mod bikes.
just engine brake.

I mean the FoV always depends on how close you are sitting to your screen but irl you have quite a large FoV.
I use the lean heading feature to get a realistic perspective, so that mid-turn there is only a small corner of the windscreen visible at the edge of the frame.
