    The angle of the perpendicular to the ground spar makes the frame look like something from Honda or Yamaha.

If they are trying to make repli-racers at least get that part right and save everyone the hassle/expense having to get new bars.

    Bradl had a pretty big get off in FP2. Not sure if he is banged up, but the crash would explain his low rank in FP2.

    Combined times from FP1 and FP2 look a bit different from FP2 alone.

    OK, is it youth and treachery overtaking old age and wisdom? I just don't understand why Nicky has been slower than Dovi and now Crazy Joe on basically the same bike, which Nicky has been riding a gazillion years.

    Oh, and why does Pirro get to ride the new bike first??? WTF?

    So if it sucks, it doesn't ruin Nicky and Dovi's efforts in Jerez.

    1. Pirro is the food taster...err...test guinea pig.

    2. Hayden appeared to be using hard front and rear tires though out FP2, most likely working on a race set up. He has been faster than Dovi in both sesions.

    Crazy Joe is plenty fast. He has arm pump issues though and may not do so well in the race.

    What I want to see is a scrap between Rossi and Marquez. If Marc finds his mojo this weekend, there might not be a chance for that. But if they are scrapping over second or third, I think it could be fireworks. :deal

    I'm really impressed by Crutchlow. He is riding last year's satellite machine and he is consistently threatening top 3. I wonder what he could do on Rossi's Yamaha.

    Still confused...maybe David can give some insight.

    I was under the impression that the Tech3 bikes are last year's factory machines, yes?

    NOT last year's satellite bikes, NOT this year's factory bikes but a few updates behind the factory riders.

    Have read many confusing opinions from several different websites.

    So far, there's no 'fast' guy, no rabbits. If that holds true after tomorrow, then it makes for a really interesting race.

    Lorenzo and Pedrosa have the M.O.: Crank out the the quick, smooth, flawless laps, and just go away for the win. If they lack that chance, then just look at who's there to scrap with: Marquez got lots of practice doing that in M2, so did Iannone and he's quick this weekend. Crutchlow is a known pitbull too. Then there's 46, in my opinion the best at racing. That is; finding a way to make passes where you wouldn't think, and make them count.

    If this race becomes a bar fight, my money is on Ianonne and Crutchlow early, then 46 for the win. MM will crash out, he's prone to mistakes in a scrap. 99 and 26 will take the long view and make sure they finish.


    Or so the voices in my head tell me. :D

    Nicky's right wrist isn't very happy.
