In it's absence, complaints about the lack of competitive manufacturers on the grid could be replaced by the lack of competitive riders on the grid as we revert back the injury lists of 80's & 90's GPs!

Dennis Noyes ran some statistics on crashing. The rate at which riders crash remains unchanged, between the 500s and the MotoGP bikes. The point of racing is to find the limit. Racers sometimes step over the limit when looking for it.
