    No worries. :thumb

    BOOTLACE's point was that MM and Casey have similar riding styles so jumping on Casey's bike is a good fit from the start.

    No need to recast. The originals are the real deal.

    Dead right. If anything MM hangs off and forward even more than Casey did.
    I reckon he could ride the tits of the Duke too!

    The ability to ride the Duke resides in the right wrist I believe. :D

    DogBoy, you are a hero! Thanks so much for that show!


    Re Crutchlow: in a yarn just posted here on crash.net Poncharal says it was Crutchlow's idea to restrict his Tech 3 contract to a single year. Said if it turned out C had to make way for Espargaro, that would be because he had declined the proffered two-year deal.

    Also comments late in that piece comparing Crutchlow's bike with the factory efforts.

    "Our engine specs are almost identical to the factory engines and we are now into the third development phase of the chassis since the first pre-season test at Sepang ..." More ...

    “Yamaha are potentially going to sign Pol and [Tech 3] will have to take him for the first year” before a move to the factory team.

    Second translation, Yamaha aren't overly concerned with keeping Rossi after next year.

    It would however be ridiculous for Smith to retain a top level seat while Cal potentially ends up out of motogp.

    Are Moto GP riders starting to "come out" after Kropotkin's question at Jerez? :eek1

    To quote HoneyBunz without causing others pain and suffering...:lol3Edwards may speak his mind but, he's hardly at the pointy end of the field. I liken him to a labourer digging a ditch with a shovel all the while watching as young blokes do the same job in flashy new backhoes etc.....in other words Man he must love what he does :D
