Yes I agree motoLingo, and an even bigger shame that Kwaka pulled out because I think that if they'd got their big bang motor (as rumoured by my then Kwaka dealer) together and given this guy another year on it then this would have been a stellar year for him. Hope the Yam performs better for him next year.

Seems the 800 Honda not every riders dream bike, I wonder what a certain Okker will achieve on it next year, probably less than he wants to... F*ck he was lucky the LCR 990 didn't land on him back in '06, am guessing the 800 is lighter...

I'm done with Marco. He has turned into a head case. I hope Yamaha have a good psychologist. They are going to have thier hands full when Laverty is kicking his ass next year.

After the ducati debacle I viewed Melandri as a whiner, but this time I think he's right:
1) RCV is developed for DP, notorious for inability to late-brake due to size. They've perfected the setup for DP mid-season so no need to help other riders.
2) Nobody who works for HRC complains, lest he be blackballed a la Biaggi. Now that Marco secured a job for next year he can complain all he wants.
3) Dovi lost the front end several times this year, while Dani gets stronger. Honda is developing the bike to ride on the rear wheel.
Will this suit Stoner I wonder.

I believe Melandri is going to be quite successful in WSBK, I really do. I don't look down on WSBK and feel Marco will ultimately be A LOT happier. I'll be rooting for him.

They should install a mirror just above the instrument gauges, so when Melandri wants to b!tch about the bike he can look at himself and put it all back into perspective.

See, this is why Elias was able to get on the rostrum on his satellite Ducati and marco could not on his factory one.
