I can ride ita pretty good, but is important to first pull the leathers out from my butt-uh crack-uh... Just a like Vale do. Then it is possible to push.

Nicky was the "development rider", Pedrosa was considered the future for Honda. While developing the bike FOR Pedrosa, he went and won the championship. Was like that the next year also.

I'd love to see Bradl on the podium. As was mentioned before I hope he keeps his LCR seat. I think its time for Flock of Seagulls to move on though.
Race will be long over. Game is at 3pm eastern US, so 9pm in Germany.

Now, Dani is clearly a gifted rider, there is no denying that. I for one do not hold anything against him for Estoril '06 (I blame Puig for that). But Nicky's championship was a genuine uphill struggle against forces off the race course that he had no control over. I believe that is why he was so emotional once he claimed the title.

I knew what you meant.

In fairness to Dani, he brought the big Repsol $$$. And they wanted him to win. Nicky's bike wasn't even on par with the satellite bikes.

Let's not let our imaginations run away with us. That bike was miles better than the satellite Hondas, and the new parts he was testing were an improvement, for the most part. The clutch had some teething problems, but was better than the standard part when it worked right.

This is starting to enter 'Simoncelli would have beaten Marquez' territory.

It's only your rep that might put a finger in the dike that's holding back an ocean of lunacy on this topic.

By the time FP1 starts I can only hope we're talking about round 9 again.
