    Good to see Crutchlow, Bradl and Dovi pushing the pace.

    I'd love to see Stoner stick it to them all one more time, but please, make it close, not a runaway! :D

    Valentino sets up his last ride on the Duc by qualifying behind two other Ducatis and the leading CRT. :cry

    Mega lap by Dani. Just fucking wow. I'd love to see him just walk away from the field tomorrow.

    Would you? I'd really love to see a couple of passes instead... It's been all season that there's always someone walking away from the field...

    Why should he hurt himself before his return to greatness in '13?

    Yup, Pedrosa looks like the guy to beat tomorrow, again. Although he wasn't very consistent with his laps compared to J-Lo. Hope for his sake that he can carry the form into next year, maybe he'll even win something. Unless he injures himself..

    Streaming MotoGP QP thru the iPad using AppleTV and converting to 3D. Cool

    On race day Rossi's Ducati moves forward, the other Ducati's move back, his set up is for the race, not qualifying.

    lol. That's not what he said. Not saying he won't gain some spots but he wasn't sacrificing anything during qp for a better race set up. The guy and bike are too slow. And since his team mate nearly made the 2nd row it must be the rider.:amazon
