    Yep, and PI is really a spectacular track, a great place to start the season!

    BTW, Stoner took MotoGP pole on a 1000cc machine last October with a 1.29.623... not really comparable I know, but I´d say Checa still got surprisingly close on the Panigale with a 1.30.234 (.. in fact that would´ve put him on the front row in MotoGP - and there was a lot of talk, that the bike is no good) :lol3

    I'm surprised to see the Duc on pole. Ditto for Rea being outpaced by his new teamate.

    Should be an excellent race, though tire wear may prove pivotal and create an unexpected podium.

    Be careful, I clicked on the download app feature, and it sent me to a website for a .Russian bride, then forwarded to a download to an anime game on the iTunes store. After that, any click on Any website would pull me back to the anime link.

    I cleared my history, cache and cookies. Not ok!

    Looking forward to the race tonight. Should be a good race. Checa and the Panigale could be a lethal team.
