At Chuckwallah no less. Not quite a good test track for a 'GP' bike, but still a good one. He probably won't get out of fourth gear on that track.

MotoGP.com season pass is now available. About $135. Do they discount the cost later in the season or does it stay consistent the whole time? I need to figure out how I want to stream this to my TV but if the price usually drops as the season goes on I may wait and get that sorted first.

At mid season they cut the price by about half, or I think they have the past few years.

That didn't sound like a conventional Kawasaki engine, any idea what they are running this year?

ZX-10R engine with heavy modifications including a "crossplane-type" crank built by Attack Performance to change the firing order.

That sounded like a crossplane I4 with no silencer.
