Aoyama is an ace! as we saw him overcome the lack of power on his Honda 250 against Aprilla, not difficult dare to guess in 2010 we will be watching Aoyama getting close to the top of the rest (others than rossi, lorenzo, stoner & pedrosa)

I reckon this guy will do OK, he has the right style for 800's,... smooth and controlled, unlike Simoncelli who is more wild and on the edge. Simoncelli to me would more suit the 1000's (or WSB's, as we saw). Let's see if Hiro can control the GP space time continuum, like his TV namesake.

Very likeable Guy, a thinker, cool, calm and collected. Will think the job through and get the best out of the package, as show on the ageing 250 Honda. For me the one to watch, and for sure once he shows what he's made of, you can expect Honda to throw there full weight behind him.

To think people on this forum were writing him off after the Valencia test. He has gone about testing in a very methodical & calculated manner & it is paying off dividends now.

I'm very interested to see the differences in results between Aoyama and Spies, and to see if Spies can shake the "World Superbike champion - Moto GP midpack" curse. They (oddly enough, and elbows excepted) remind me of each other when I see them ride . . . very controlled, tight lines, quick track recognition. I can't wait for the 2010 season!

Yeah this guy seems to get it. Balls to the walls, bumping, banging, punting and laying the bike down is in all probablity not the best way to get to the top of the heap. He said it best when he described riding a bike with electronics. Having more brass than a Kansas City fire truck will get you on the road. Having some brains to go along with lots of brass is a good thing. Grip or doing your homework, Smart kid.
