Entertaining qualifying. The grid in its own right by manufacturer,rather than rider is worth noting.
Honda vs Honda. Yamaha vs Yamaha. Ducati vs Ducati.
Hats off to Cal,great effort. Of course most of the focus will be around Casey and Simmo right now.
The one thing that stands out is that Casey put in some huge laps on hard rubber.
Weather conditions and tire choice will be critical over race distance.
I really hope an idiotic 'banzai' charge does not spoil the race for any of the 17 riders and us spectators.

Well this looks like more of a manufacturer thing. 4 Hondas, 4 Yamahas and 3 Ducs all lined up. Wish they would have like a Cup Challenge where they all rode the same bike and we could actually see who the best rider was

@mohany the 3rd grader. Dude who the fock would be happy to be slow? Show me any factory bike who isn't at the front row who doesn't look worried at the pace of the top 4.

Was Rossi celebrating his 9th spot? Dumb ass.

What are the chances of a decent string of comments ever appearing on here? Only 8 comments and already it's full of infantile rubbish :(
For instance, what the hell has a poll on what Rossi can do in 80 seconds got to do with the qualifying??? PATHETIC!!!
I give up, I really do....
