I got the 2014 Live Experience App for my iPad, as I found last years to be excellent. This years looks to be even more so, except, it's very quiet.....like there is no sound. At all. Zero.

I've contacted customer service, and got a reply that they had received my query, and am still waiting....

Has anyone else got the same issue?

Why Suzuki?

With the financial hard times Suzuki has gone thru the last few years, I wonder why they are spending the money developing a MGP bike. It's not like what you race on Sunday, you sell on Monday anymore.

I just don't see much return on that investment....now if they had developed a 6 speed, light weight, durable off road bike with great suspension and price point, they might be selling lots of them, making a big dent in the orange bikes sales. Beta and Sherco in the meantime have gone to that niche market which seems to be the market with future potential.

Why not just watch others develop new technology and then apply it to your own products like so many others do.

Get ready for changing fortunes at Ducati. Dovi will have a good year.

Wasn't that what JB thought 2 years ago?

Then again, maybe Gigi can turn the TT around. Wouldn't that make for a more interesting season.

Remember, that it never would have been close between JL & MM, if it wasn´t for that amazingly screwed-up race weekend at Phillip Island.
and don't forget Lorenzo won more races than Marquez and he suffered a badly broken collarbone. and as far as the bikes go yes they were evenly matched at some tracks and the ones they weren't the hondas had a significant advantage..Austin and Indy were two.
In the whole scheme of things I want to see Rossi get back on the top step of the podium and the great thing is we will get to see it all play out

First timing update of the new year.

That's it, after 11 minutes.

Same old, same old...
