Hey Loris, just don't fire it all up in the 'kitty litter', like you did on the Duc in 2007. Cost you a packet. On a serious note, I reckon Suzi and their rider lineup are 'dark horses' this season.
Don't wright the 'warhorse' off just yet. In 2007 he was perhaps diverted by the fatherhood thing. Now he's back to the racing thing, and it showed in Sepang. The GSVR is no slouch, nor is Leon's GSXR.
The potential and focus is their at Rizla 2010.
Yeah, I for one am looking forward to seeing a real blue bike and their riders at the 'pointy end' all season long.All the best oldest and youngest!!! :)

Loris is an enigma.

Everyone wants him to do well on the Suzuki, but deep down none of us actually expect him to!
(Not due to Loris, but due to the struggling GSVR)

Forget 2007, 2006 could have been Loris' year if it hadn't been for the evil pile up whih claimed him and Gibernau. He was (is) a true 990 rider, despite him also excelling on the 250.

Can't see the logic in comparing the GSXR WSBK and GSVR moto GP bike though?
They are completely different animals and sadly WSBK lessons can't filter 'up'.

The Gixxer thou may have ruled at Phillip Island a few weeks back but I'm afraid that doesn't transfer to the world of GP racing.

Enough of them being fired up for the testing. Save it and bring it to the races. We need some new colours at the front to stir things up! My gut feeling is that The factory needs to clean out there test riders and find someone who really can develope this bike. The factory can produce they just in need of some direction - rider input.

Fired up?He looks like he has been on a massive bender,hasn't slept in days and rather hagged.Hope he gets himself together in time for the test as Suzuki will want more action than empty words.
Come on Loris don't throw it all away now just because you have a bike made out of a mish mash of bits from all over the spares departments.
