the rider wasn't exactly a pro, either that or he was taking it easy.....put a pro on there and then re-do it.

Okay yeah I thought the rider was looking a little heavy for a pro. Clearly not Biaggi himself!

Its on a smaller tighter course, they tried to even the odd with the GT-R since its computer controlled AWD would make up alot of the time. Had they put it on a more open course where the RSV could stretch its legs a bit more, the times would have been much much more in the favor of the aprilia. But then all the GTR fanboys would have cried foul. (More so than they probably are already.)

Even with there not being a motogp rider on it, he was skilled enough to harness the abilities of the bike and that it all that matters. Even though obviously not in MotoGP shape, I would be willing to bet he has saw his fair share of competitive trackdays.

it'd be interesting to see them do an individual time attack without having the rider/driver worrying about hitting the other person or having the a faster line blocked off.
