If you read what he said about the crash in Qatar and today, it's because he's NOT on the limit and didn't load the tire enough.

"Stoner doesn't seem to understand this. He doesn't spend the time to try to perfect his riding so he crashes a lot." Robert Danley

LOl. Are you serious? It's bike racing - they crash and not because they don't practice enough.

What you don't seem to understand is that they don't ride around just "practicing" but testing different settings and tires. If they find out what they need on a particular run than there is no need to continue with it and they move on. When the work is done they park it to save the engine and the tires.

Yeah Stoner, stop pushing the bike whilst trying to optimize set-up. I'm sure i speak for thousands of bike race fans across the world when i say the main reason i watch bike racing is to watch top riders not push the limit of their bikes and not try their hardest. The next thing that's going to happen, knowing how hard Stoner likes to ride, is he's going to try to qualify on pole and then no doubt try and win the race on Sunday, possibly attempting some incredible passing that may result in yet another crash! where will it end? If these so called top riders continue to ride in such an exciting balls out fashion, i may just have to consider watching another sport! :p

Man, don't get me wrong he's a talented rider and if his head was screwed on straight(ignoring Rossi's mind games like Lorenzo can) he would have been a three time champ by now. I got a feeling this dude will possibly be down thirty points or more to Rossi by the end of this race on sunday.

Rawdawg, you need to read my post again, if he is losing the front by not loading the front tyre enough (and I would think he is doing this looking to carry more corner apex speed whilst not killing his front tyre) he needs to predict this outcome and chage his style accordingly. If he cannot "read" this handling situation coming he needs to avoid unloading the front early in an attempt to achieve more speed. If this is the case his suspension engineer has his work cut out! And don't forget, his rivals will see this as a weakness! Rossi, Lorenzo and Pedrosa are the masters of apex speed and with a little less power in the Duke now this could be a problem for Stoner in a close race.
