Yeah.. I kinda expected him to hit the ground running. He mentioned in the earlier tests that the bike throttle/acceleration or something felt very different from what he was used to.

I hope he gets used to it quick. I had him marked as a championship contender of he stays healthy.

Nicky said things were good, and thanked the team, but that the bike felt different to the 2008 prototype he rode end of last year which has to be Nicky speak for,
"They've built it around Danny again !!!!"
Hope not.

Wow, that's good. All you have to do when you wreck is jump of and start running. Then you won't get hurt.

I'd love to see Marco do well this year, especially on the inferior zook.

I hope that this season is not another snoooz fest with Stoner too... but for some reason, I think I may be too optomistic.

Thats got to be one of the funniest shots of Rossi I've seen.

Those times look wack to me. Randy knocks almost a whole second off the official lap record??? Its interesting to see how these guys ajust to new machinery. If Randy ran qualifying tires, I wonder if he would have beatin Rossi's pole time.

I doubt Stoner will run away with the season again.

I think he would ! He's showing some serious intention but can he sustain it ?? He proved last year that he can put in some very very quick laps but new team, new bike..........respect.

Marco thanked Ducati for changing the ergonomics of the bike for him which makes me think he is having some serious issues !!
He's riding too healthy, you gotta beat Marco up a bit and then he rides like stink.


JT getting some lean angle on the Yamaha......................
I enjoy those leathers !!
