Isn't it "That's one small step for Man, one giant leap for Mankind"?

Maybe it translates differently or I've been wrong all my life...

Not sure I get Jlo's lid. THe quote is wrong and why an American flag? Did NASA give him sponsorship for upcoming high side flights? I'd be interested to hear the inspiratin on that one. Good to see Stoney at it again with seemingly little loss of speed. Nice to have another bike up front in the mix. Looking forward to the weekend for sure.

I don't get the Jlo lid livery either

Stoner looked happier and more relaxed in the buildup to Free Practice than I think I've ever seen him!!!

Took him 5 laps to hit the front, must be a tad rusty
did you see him backing it in??

Not sure about the new tail piece on the GP9

Lorenzo just looked like he was cruising
Rossi's suit is the nutts

that was impressive. If he does top 5 it will be great but i think/dream he will take the win. Fastest on race tires but we still need to see his health and arm pump but he looked happy and rested.

Rossi looked worried for Lorenzo and Stoner but he always finds that last setting.

Actually, I think it IS "...one small step for A man,..." Not sure how correct I am but I remember watching or hearing something a while back about how everyone had misheard Neil Armstrong and so it went down in history without the "a". Something about the entire meaning of the quote being changed and blah blah blah...

Anyway, the back of the helmet looks like it says "men" which IS a mistake.

I don't know about the influence for the helmet but I would definitely wear it. I think it looks bad a$$.

Anyone know what the "GANA" writen like NASA means. Per google translator "gana" means wish or desire in Spanish, but is that what they meant?
Anyway, it was nice to watch and no one got hurt.
