[QUOTE=stevie88;21383813]Oh crap! Wait until Rossi gets the bike sorted? Really dude, one could more realistically say wait until Marquez gets the Honda figured out.

Yeah well....Maybe MM fell into a bike that suited him just fine?


Maybe? Just sayin....

Rossi right now reminds me of the fast rookie (not MM) who has the speed and racecraft, but just isn't sure he can beat his rivals. He needs a win (even under weird circumstances) to remind him he can beat these guys. Once he doe he will be close to the front and we will see a mix of the four top guys on the podium and trading wins and Cal knocking on their heals. I don't think he will win a championship if there is not a fair number of DNF or DNS for JLo, DP, and MM but he will be closer to the front if he can just win one.
My bet for his first win is Mugello though with rain this weekend or a mixed race all bets are off.

Awesome, thanks for posting that - takes me back to the era when I fell in love with roadracing! Nothing like the old 500's.

+1! That was great! Anybody think if they recast the show with actors, Robin Williams could have played Kevin, and Will Ferrell could have played Kenny?

That pic clearly shows MM's alien status, in case there was any doubt.

That is Casey Stoner.

And just to play Devil's Advocate, Valentino has climbed on board the 2012 World Championship winning machine. I am not sure you can ask for much better (even as good as the Honda is).

Thanks for correcting me. My bad.

I didn't even look at the number on the nose.

Oh, well. One alien leaves, another enters.

No worries.

BOOTLACE's point was that MM and Casey have similar riding styles so jumping on Casey's bike is a good fit from the start.
