It's not just mysterious to you, over 99% of us can't understand what guy martin is saying.

I'd like to see another alien (one a little closer to his prime) give the ducati a go just to get an idea of how those different riding styles work (or don't) with the ducati.
Yeah put Marky Mark on it for a season. It is a different bike of course, but still not a good one.
I suspect it'd be like Stoner; winning or crashing. Rossi being older/wiser wouldn't push as hard as either of them I think.

If you think back to Dovi's Repsol days he was on slightly less equipment and wasn't far behind the other two. I think he out pointed one teammate each year.

That guy can't buy publicity! I always said he's the most underrated/ignored rider out there.

Remember, that Ducati´s development (or the lack of it) was a big factor, when Stoner decided to quit them. They wouldn´t listen to anybody, not even Stoner, and probably still do not.

Thanks for posting that. I have to wonder if Hayden has been out there... and if so, did he manage to humble Vale at his own track...?

Seems like a genuine safety issue. Remember, there were spectacular passes in the Corkscrew in the AMA SS race and no one used the Rossi/Marquez line.

I don't know the answer to this, maybe someone knows:

It's one thing in the heat of the race to kinda blow the corner wide and end up cutting the next one, but is this not intentionally cutting course, because here's proof that he planned it?

Someone commented in David's site that Cal's getting 5M£/yr at Ducati.
