Notice something over the tail pipe that you don't commonly see on a race bike.....or almost any bike for that matter?

Correct me if I'm wrong here, Grinchy, but the "joke" or whatever it is, is the grade or screen on the end of the tail pipe.

Stoner seems to have a niche for finding his way into the kitty litter, and it looks like Ducati is tired of cleaning out pebbles from the exhaust system......

That makes sense now. I saw the screen and was wondering what it was there for.

You must be my brother from another cause no one else seems to have got it

I'm pretty sure Ducati have fitted the stone guard with the new 2010 engine rules in mind and specifically the limited number available to a rider over the course of a season.

Of course it ties in with Stoners last two off track excursions into the gravel traps at Qatar and Valencia hence the "evolution" gag

The "button" is not a "button", it is a camera that all the bikes have. For some reason the powers that be think we are interested in looking at the a$$ of the riders.
