Meanwhile, Rossi says it is now too quiet at the Ranch.

"Randy De Puniet posted a lap of 1'34.882, under a second off the fastest lap set in Sunday's race at the Italian circuit."

Sounds like they are as fast as the Ducati's already.

Dovisioso did a 1:34.448 in FP3 and a 1:34.338 in Q2. Fastest of the Ducatis.
Yea, I'd say that's getting pretty darn close to the "Ducati Pace" for the Suzuki.

Rossi's Ranch looks like a blast. Please post up when the annual ADV racing forum rally takes place. Could you imagine hanging out for a few days of riding with these guys?

I'm very happy to hear it. The rub though, is; can they run those paces on a measly 20 litres of fuel?

Depends if they are running their own ECU or the Spec one, maybe all this testing is to help them port their own over to the MM one
