What sticks out there to me is that he wants to have fun there
The desire to win combined with a desire to enjoy makes for great champions.

Someone's gotta start:

1 - Rossi
2 - Marquez
3 - Lorenzo
4 - Pedrosa

Yeah, I know, take Rossi and put him in 4th and move the others up is probably more realistic, but I'd really like to see Rossi back on top. I find myself wanting to see him win more now than when he was kicking ass and winning titles.

Should be some very exciting practice and qualifying sessions, to say nothing of the race itself.

Really going to go out on a limb and predict Spaniards take the podium spots. Also, I wouldn't be surprised to see Pedrosa get his mojo back and take a win here.

Hope to see some good fairing banging between Hayden and Dovi, too, with Hayden coming out on top.

Hope somebody put a mattress outside that one fence for Hayden this year.

Does anyone know if they moved that fence line back? Not much runoff there and it looked like there was room for more.

I'm with you (stoopit, I know) but I think Jorge will have the win, Misano was, if anything a Honda track (tight corners etc) and Aragon will suit Jorge better.

Actually, I would like Cal on the podium too but that's a bridge too far now.
