    I am wondering if their is wiggle room for a full spec RC211 with spec electronics.

    If Yamaha and Ducati are doing it, why not Honda, too?

    Pure speculation on my part.

    Because that's not the way Honda work. They've already built the five proddy racers, so there's no way they're going to build even more bikes for teams which may or may not decide to use them.

    They have propably 50 spare engines and frames ready to go, at any given moment. Would be fairly easy.

    And i believe he meant prototype Honda with spec ecu like Forward with Yamaha is doing.

    I figured as much. But what if someone wanted to pay for this years bikes to run with spec electronics? Probably not, but stranger things have happened. :wink:

    Tech 3 riders out qualify factory Yamaha riders. Here's hoping they do the same in the race!

    I just noticed that there's roughly the same time separating Hayden and Edwards than there is Hayden and Crutchlow. Ouch.

    Anyone know of any live streams for tomorrows BMO moto GP? Any idea what time it runs?

    So Indy last week, BMO this week and Great Britain next week.... just how do they juggle the equipment to be ready at such a rapid globe trotting pace? How many bikes are their for each rider?
