What sticks out there to me is that he wants to have fun there
The desire to win combined with a desire to enjoy makes for great champions.

Someone's gotta start:

1 - Rossi
2 - Marquez
3 - Lorenzo
4 - Pedrosa

Yeah, I know, take Rossi and put him in 4th and move the others up is probably more realistic, but I'd really like to see Rossi back on top. I find myself wanting to see him win more now than when he was kicking ass and winning titles.

I'm with you (stoopit, I know) but I think Jorge will have the win, Misano was, if anything a Honda track (tight corners etc) and Aragon will suit Jorge better.

Actually, I would like Cal on the podium too but that's a bridge too far now.

Worst news for Yamaha, IMHO, will be fuel economy on Sunday.

To clarify (again) I wasn't bashing on dani it could have happened with anyone else, but it didn't it happened with dani so that's why I was referring to him. The best racers are great no matter what era, give them the bike they will win but traction control does suck from a fans perspective.
