Rawdawg,I did as well! I didn't comment till Stoner had spoken about it. The people who post post's like yours just confirm that they have a very low understanding of motorcycles and motorcycle racing and get very angry when post's go right over their heads. Must remember to keep post's very simple in future, sorry.

After Qatar I got to thinking that while Nicky seems to be flourishing with the new Duc, Casey is having issues understanding the new feeling of it.

I first thought this based on Casey's description of the first accident, and the situation seems to mirror the Repsol Honda team's previous predicament where Dovi progressed and Pedrosa fell behind.

Seeing this occur again worries me for Casey because he doesn't have it worked out yet but he seems to be optimistic and upbeat about solving it. Someone mentioned earlier that Casey appeared overly upset or pissed off, but from what I saw while watching it live was an engaged rider actively pursuing an understanding, not someone lost and confused.

Casey is the only theat to Valentino this year. Maybe Ben next year but Vale will be long gone on four wheels by then (or perhaps not with a big red two wheeled one throbing between his legs he and Casey/Nicky could do the business!?) No-one else will get close........
Surely we all want to see a competitive 2010 season, rather than Rossi running away with it from the start (without taking anything away from the guy, it would be boring).
Casey, and the Duc can give us racing fans something to marvel at.... not ruling out Mr Hayden who was magnificent at Quatar - there was no way Dovi would have caught him but for straight line speed.

Hoppy et al, I ride and have done so for 18 years, I also raced, however, even if I didn't or only had a passing knowledge of bike setup, I think forums are here to let people voice an opinion. Equally, I don't think you need to be an ex race mechanic or an ex race tech at Ohlins to see problems with a bike and what the possible causes are. I think Casey has an issue withe the front end (obviously) and I personally think that having to constantly load up the front end to get front end grip is a massive issue that only Casey seems to be facing. Loss of front end grip is vastly more crippling to a rider than rear end (esp with traction control). The thing I wonder is how much is rider.

sameguy as blah blah blah. I know!!! There is nothing funnier than seeing a motor cycle racer falling off. I often drive around the streets just knocking them off. Until I happened to come across the people on this forum I didn't think i would find people who shared the obvious joy there is in ridiculing riders and finding enjoyment from bike riders falling off.
