All,

I'm off for my annual trip to PI, the Mecca of motorcycle sports.
Bautisa already top of the time sheets...fuck yeah!!

Safe trip to anyone else who's going.

It's going to be an awesome weekend.
Thanks from able duc, maxnne, jpanigale and 1 others

Lucky you, Bautista's long run times looked devastating, on day two. And it looks like that Duc "handles" real good down the straitaway. Sykes has the Beemer working well, good call by BMW signing him on, he's the one that turned the ZX10 around and made it a winner.

Ducati now have valve/piston area and air flow numbers with the best of them, they will be able to move the peak torque around, without hurting the horsepower numbers.

Was a good race from trackside and AB really was in a race of his own, shame about Haslem on the Kawasaki but after his off he was pushing hard and had some brilliant slides through Stoners corner.

V4's looked amazing in the flesh on track and sounded great. Even looked amazing with their clothes off on the pit walk.

I do believe Ducati has that factored in to the equation, Dorna can cut their revs by a substantial amount and it just won't hurt them.

I hope Dorna doesn't over react, all the other V4R riders didn't have a great result. This may be a fluke.
Thanks from Kev242
