My thoughts exactly. Rossi said once during last year that Stoner's riding style in general is the next big thing for future riders. MM reached for it and took the torch seamlessly.

They still don't have that figured out? What have they been doing these past few months? Wouldn't it have been reasonable to expect that Audi put a torch under their asses already? Evidently Rossi made the right call.

Marquez is impressing. Looks to be the most interesting season in several years.

MM's riding style actually reminds me of Randy Mamola, more than anyone else. Just faster...

This image of Bradley really shows how these guys load the front end. Not much more left- that's a tiny bit o' sunshine under the rear tire.

Are those front brake lever "hooks" now mandatory ?? Everyone has them on...
I can allready see the aftermarket industry squeezing those for the posers, with chrome swings...

Marky looks faster than i thought, this early. I think the title is gonna be between Rossi, JLO and MM. Pedrosa ain't got it, he would have to beat MM to have a chance, dont see that happening. I don't really give a shit about the title, just wanna see close battles. Bring it !!!!

Gooooooooo Rossiiiiiiii !!!!!!!!!!!!

Krop made another good observation on his site: MM is going faster (today Wednesday over 0.5 secs faster) than Stefan Bradl, who also rides a factory-spec Honda at Sepang, AND has a year in MotoGP & Bridgestone tyres under his belt.

From Christian Gabbarini (via Jose G. Maroto on twitter):

"In many ways resembles Casey"
"He is very sensitive on the gas. Already begun to understand how to make the bike slide"

You never heard Honda say We expect Bradl to .. Everyone knows what an incredibly talented rider MM is and no big surprise that he's ahead of Bradl. All the predictions are out for him to be the youngest rider to win a MotoGP race if he does it before Donnington which I certainly wouldn't bet against.
