Rossi's shoulder is still hurting. Probably sandbagging it and trying not to do anything too stupid in the pre-season that would keep him from starting the real season. I still have faith

He was half a second down 'till he stuck in the soft tire No doubt the little fella is on fire though.

Surprised to see Simoncelli ahead of Spies and equally surprised to see the Suzuki right up there but as you say, "is just testing"

The GOAT, now lets see ,
not able to tuck fully behind the screen because of that shoulder which he says is way more troublesome than his compound leg fracture was
only 30 laps which is almost half the amount of most others,
still adjusting to the very different Ducati and already he's on and ahead of Haydens pace,

the big 46 Sunami is coming Alberto

You know why right? the hard tire was spinning all day the long, not enough grip for him, they are trying a new swingarm/frame tomorrow. He just put the soft so he can show the rear tire was indeed spining. Read man, read.

Alberto had absolutely NOTHING to say when Stoner crashed on the warm up lap (he vowed to never come watch the races with us any more b/c something bad always happens to when he does). now all of a sudden, your mouth can't seem to find it's way to a closed position. lol

you're right, it's only testing, Rossi' isn't 100%, he probably isn't even 75% on the shoulder, but i am all for Spies this year, Rossi, and the others can suck it as far as i'm concerned.

I hope that Honda blows up in every race!

and quit texting me to meet you for a get away lunch, you know i'm married (to a woman no less)

Sad reflection of the times when Yamaha who have won everything in the last 3 years and boast the reigning World Champion ( a Spanish one to boot) can't find a title sponsor

Now that just plain sux. i wonder how he feels and by he i mean Jlo. Maybe he just doesn't care, he still gets his millions. Maybe if Benji does a good job he brings some sponsors
