    How much for one of those tiny stickers? Curious. It all has to add up, is it one mill for a 2 x4 sticker, half mill for a 1 x 2 sticker, etc? Ok , there may not be a lot on this particular Yamaha, but in general, couldn't the team pick up lots of sponsors for relatively cheap, and it all add up to make it worth it?

    I just saw a nose cone for a Honda Indy car, lots of stickers on that one!

    He's genuinely one of the good guys in the paddock. Won't bother trying to phone, as clearly, he won't be answering at European times...

    I must admit, if you wanted to own a tricked out high performance motorcycle, the bike in this image is clearly the max. BMW, Aprilia, Yamaha need not apply.

    I've been wondering if the flat bill didn't make it to Italy or has it been and gone?
