I don't think Qatar is a good judge of how the season will go, though JL did look on pretty good point. Stoner was still fast, just threw his tire away. Spies did alright. I still have high hopes.

JL shows that the bike is competitive. The real question is whether or not Spies can get his up to speed.

My fingers are crossed! I'd love to see Spies put out both JL and CS.

Crutchlow was looking strong though...

The fact they sent him out on a bent frame is not good for him. Crutchlow is an up and commer. I'll be surprised if he survives through the year.

Jarvis is all over him

Dovi on a factory yami next year.

would be cool if spies came through. watching crutchlow last year was really fun, from the races ive seen he seems to have toned down the ballsy moves, i need to keep up with them more often..

that was a beautiful battle with simoncelli.

JL is a beast and Pedrosas are bigger than he is (deep braking in qatar). Spies has a alot of work to do but id love to see him win.

been noticing a lot of riders using that wierd counter balance leg lately.

It is more than just arm pump. The Hondas are having a chatter problem.
