Whats to stop them saying they are testing next years bike and just testing upgrades for this years machine seems logical with all the testing restrictions

Shouldn't they be focusing on THIS years bike? Rossi lost the front end, as did Casey a few times last year. From what Rossi said, they still haven't completely solved that issue. I'm just sayin....

Rossi I think knew from the start he would struggle this year no matter what bike he would be riding even the Yamaha, so going to Ducati before the change is a masterstroke, Ducati knows how to build fast bikes and Rossi knows how to power slide and use the horsepower top make up lost ground on the 990's, he has been proven this a few times before. Just remember back to '06... how fast was the Duke in the hands of Caparossi and Bayliss in the last round? Caparossi may of even won the '06 championship if Gibernau had not of taken him out and caused injury.
