    We may have to wait until race two, or three or four, to get a true sense of how the season might go. Qatar is good for Ducati, and for Lorenzo, but may not be an indicator of things to come. Austin seems to be a gimme for Marquez. Argentina is still relatively new. 

    Regardless though, it's fun to look at the pretty bikes on display, even if they're basically last year's models. Something has to fill the void :)

    Total dog and pony show.  Good to see racing prototype motorcycles again but to suggest it's anything but a media exercise would be disingenuous.  Same deal every year.  "We want to win.  Things are great.  Looking positive.". Don't mean a hill of beans until starting lights go out at Qatar.  Even testing times preseason never seem to be a clear indicator.  First race still a ways away.

    I did suggest to you the other day, that Ducati, if they have an answer to the downforce issue, would not show their fairings until tests or maybe Qatar. Why would they?

    The wings stuck out like dogs balls, could not be hidden. Any internal ducting aids this year will be a whole new ball game. Will be hidden until homologated. Interesting to see the results.

    Q. With the vote ranking David. Is the Rating for your article, and User Rating for others comments, please? So I know I'm doing it right

    The calendars arrived and are in action. 1 4 me, 1 4 the daughter. Cheers

  • Reply to: Rossi Speaks About Sepang, Yamaha, Viñales At The Monza Rally   1 day 14 hours ago

    "Ahead of the event, Rossi also appeared on an Italian radio station(link is external), where he spoke of his relationship with former teammate Jorge Lorenzo, and with his new teammate Maverick Viñales. His relationship with Lorenzo had deteriorated at the end of 2015, after the pair had a heated argument. But Lorenzo had come in to Rossi's garage after the Spaniard's last race with Yamaha at Valencia, and told the Italian he had always respected him. "It was a nice moment," Rossi said."

    Nice to hear.. :´-)

    Paragraph 10: Vinales was "impressed the most that the bike provided great acceleration when he picked it up on corner entry." Vinales probably means corner exit, or am I missing something?Nice to be reading something new again, David. Winter is almost unbearable.
