What’s this? I missed it- who said what to Rins about his head position??

...somewhere it was noted that he could be more aerodynamic by tucking his head in more. I didn't see who it was.

Reminds me of Colin Edwards. You could see his neck in all his pictures except for tucked on the straight. Benefit in getting lots of body reaching in to an apex is there too. Rins isn't a small rider.

Yeah, I'd thought of Norick Abe but the Edwards comparison works as well. An old school style. I like it, adds a nice contrast to the modern hyper-aggressive style (which I also like).

...next time could be captioned, "I think Ducati have taken anti-wheelie a step too far."
