Don´t know, how much credibility they have left right now. I´d like to see Spies up front, though.

And I'd like a pony and a winning lottery ticket. Neither of us will get what we want.

I continue to hold out hope that you will get that pony.

in context

Perhaps he meant when it was being displayed somewhere, like in a snow drift? Possibly as a drag race machine? You know if you put a flat slick on it and geared it right, I am sure it might be a NHRA contender in some class. Or maybe they just need to go the HD route and make a class for it. Then it would definetely be a better bike, like sort of.

69 has done what he can

Dunno. It may be that he is 'right' for the bike, but then again... 2013 will tell.

Ducati just loves Nicky .

Ducati CEO Gabriele Del Torchio raised eyebrows last week when he mildly called out American Nick Hayden at the Wrooom launch event in the Dolomites, saying "We are delighted with the confirmation of Nicky, but we expect him to do better than last year."
He was ahead of Rossi until the crash and injury at Indy.... Nicky needs to grow a set and not be so laid back. If they could build such a great bike Rossi would still be there. If not for Stoner they would still be winless..........

And I know it represents the year but for the sake of good/bad luck, couldn't the factory used a different designation than GP13???? BAD juju. How much worse could it get......um, never mind.

I hope that was lost in translation.
