Is it safe to assume that most of the teams are finding their bearings on familiar hardware? Is anyone indicating that they are/will be running 2016-spec bikes this week?

Are the two extra Suzuki's running anything special? The new engine/gearbox perhaps?

I've seen pictures today of the M1 with it's fuel filler behind the seat instead of it's usual position!
Is this the full blown 2016 bike do you know David?

A little surprised by amount of crashes, after all who wants to go into the winter nursing an injury. It would seem Michelin still hasn't found a good balance between front / rear grip and the teams are still trying to get the bikes balanced to the new tyres.

So far I've seen Miller, Rabat, Iannone, both Espargaros, Crutchlow, Laverty, Bradl, Marquez, Vinales and probably more have tasted the Valencia tarmac.... David - it may well be easier just to tell us who DID'NT crash today!

most of the teams used 2015 bike to test the tyres,

Redding used 2016 bike,as did MM93 later,

again most used the old ECM,the new electronics are for testing on wednesday

I should have made notes,sorry to generalise,

Hi David,

Its been an amazing season and i just want to thank you for keeping us all up to date with balanced and insightful views, but what i am really looking forward to now is your latest podcast on the round up for the season and your insights to this weeks testing and especially what they think of the new tires and the new riders and riders who have changed teams! No pressure !

Ducati have the same tire allocation as other factory bikes in 2016, correct? I presume that means in this test we can compare their times to the Hondas and Yamahas without having to think about whether or not they were on the softs...

Must be wrong, but I'm sure the broadcasters today said that Scott Redding was the only rider using the 2016 "Spec Software"? or did they mean the only Ducati rider?
