That's ridiculous, when you really think about. I mean seriously, it's lighter than a Ninja 250, but puts out more power than a Hayabusa. WTF?

Despite all of the electronics that help keep the front down and the rear from breaking loose (too much at least), it really makes you appreciate what these riders are capable of, and at the same time, really puts your own abilities into perspective.

From what I hear they really are close freinds, and i know what its like to race a close freind we dont hate each other on the track we are just competitive and that is the end of it. When the green flag drops you do your best and win if you can.

If we talk about my favorite rider of all times it will be super Bayliss, and this is probably becuase i started watching racing kinda late in my time. I still think Rossi is the best ever but i will root for super Bayliss.


So this next season SUPER DUCS FTW!!!!!!!

Could'nt agree more.
I love ducati as a company. They treat their people and their riders the way they should be treated. I think yamaha does this as well, but I don't own any yami's, soo gooooooooooooooo DUCS!!!! haha!

Honda, well Honda REALLY needs to work on their image in motogp.
, you'd have thought they would have changed when they lost Rossi back in the day, but they still seem like the same cold blooded corporate monster that they've always been. Everyones a number with those guys.
