Rossi is saying the reach to the bars is still too far and he still can't get his weight over the front like he wants to.

I think I stole that from Kropotkin, too.

Getting anxious for the new season, decided looking at some of last years races would satisfy some of that motogp jones. I picked the Assen race to view knowing I would enjoy watching Spies win.

I was first struck by a little nostalgic sadness as I realized this was also the race that Simoncelli finally took the pole. Brought a bit of tear to my eye.

Then I completely broke down in sobs when I remembered that most of us in the U.S. will have to endure Greg Cremer and Speed's dumbassery.

I don't know who else does, but Rossi has always done so.

Some of us bite the bullet and buy the MotoGP subscription... Speed kicked to the curb.

He is not trying HARD enough

I would really like to see Stoner, Lorenzo and Rossi battling it out all season long for the title. Regretably I just can't see Rossi being very consistent over the season.

I still think it will be mainly between Casey and Jorge.

We shall see when the season starts shortly!!

And that looks like it could be his race pace.

From a MCN acticle:
Quote:
"I was quite fast all day with used tyres and we made another step today to make the bike work even better. We had tyres left and we were doing long runs on every tyre we had, more or less race distance on each tyre, so at the end of the day we had a couple spare and decided to go and put it on top of the list.
"Im happy because this is not normally a good track for me, so to leave fastest gives me a lot of confidence for the year.

Rossi got his two 1.39 laps one after another, fresh out of the pits and entered the pits after them.

At Sepang we saw and, I managed to get some body filler from the GT Porshe boys to help, with many mods to air box cover or what looks like the tank in an attempt to move Rossi back on the bike well his pelvic area anyway come the second test and they had a brand new piece of glasswork that was being fitted and modified during testing for the same apparent reasons. Maybe with the revised frame and what seems to be some rotation of the engine the balance of the bike is still not right. May be another version on its way soon? This must be costing Ducati a fortune!! Or it will...
