Observations; Casey has that section wired, nobody is close. Dani is smooth and deceptively quick, all the Yamaha's look good but not as fast. All the Ducatis are having rear suspension problems, the arse squats then loads up and they are having trouble getting the power down. Nicky is really trying but the thing is such a pig, they must be loosing a shit load of time there.
More later, typing on an ipod touch is rather tedious!
Both Rossi and Hayden have been complaining of the rear pumping (every time I use that expression, Crutchlow cracks a fart joke) all year long. One of the reasons to go to the revised weight distribution and the new swingarm is to try to find something to solve that.
