    Dovisioso did a 1:34.448 in FP3 and a 1:34.338 in Q2. Fastest of the Ducatis.
    Yea, I'd say that's getting pretty darn close to the "Ducati Pace" for the Suzuki.

    Rossi's Ranch looks like a blast. Please post up when the annual ADV racing forum rally takes place. Could you imagine hanging out for a few days of riding with these guys?

    I'm very happy to hear it. The rub though, is; can they run those paces on a measly 20 litres of fuel?

    Depends if they are running their own ECU or the Spec one, maybe all this testing is to help them port their own over to the MM one

    And his opinion is no different than what many people here have posted. He's not bringing anything to the table that doesn't come from a vineyard.

    its not rocket science.he is not a normal person.He had an abnormal upbringing.He rides motorcycles fast.He likes the most powerful motorcycles that can be built..He doesnt like the bullshit that goes with it.There is a link here(i think) that he talks about motogp bikes NOT being powerful enough,and he wants the most powerful ones that can be built with no electronics.Or build him a modern 750 two stroke with no electronics.Build 4, make a series,he will be your first applicant

    If he gets asked he's going to answer honestly, give him credit for that.
    He does get quoted out of context like with the latest V8 comments. He stated that it didn't seem right that he (Casey) was getting more coverage coming 18th in a level two race where the blokes at the pointy end of of the top class weren't even getting on the news. He has a point.
