Can a Mod re-start this thread so Yooperbikemike shows as the originator? He's worked his ass off keeping the MotoGP threads accurate and technically competent. Seems like it'd be more respectful for a thread with his name on it to BE his thread.

De Puniet testing Suzuki and Bautista sitting it out could be an indicator of Suzuki plans for next year. Randy was impressive in 4th, was it on 800cc bike?

As far as Rossi goes he should run NOW. I do not know where though, back to Honda?

Sorry if I missed it, but... any info on whether or not Ducati have rotated the cylinders back some to allow more weight on the front?

Its all pretty confusing, but I think the bottom line is that Ducati adopted a 2012 MotoGP chassis that allows them to move the motor around cheap and fast. They haven't changed the motor architecture yet, but they might.

They seem to have gone to the perimiter spar chassis to easily experiment with weight and flex. Also, we have tire evolution, which forces ready chassis changes as well. Of course, that's exactly why HRC and the rest have adopted the spar chassis for 30 years in all thier race designs . It's probably rooted in MX/SX designs of the 80's.

But whatever. Hopefully Ducati can catch up. The new superbike is a killer for style. Right up there with the 916 (and other Italian fashions).

Are they using the new spec (softer) tires in this test? Would be silly if they weren't.

And that picture of Stoner is crazy.

Have the engine sizes been formally announced, (or will they)? With the Suzuki 800 at the pointy end of the days testing, it would be interesting to know how much more displacement the other brands are employing.

Thanks for that article. Nakamoto-san seems like a driven and determined man. He is the right guy to get and keep HRC competitive.
