The DUCATI is NOT a one line bike.
It is not a one person bike.
It is not as well developed YET as the Honda but they are working on it
you don't get fastest lap of the race in the wet on a dog...
it does need work accepted, but stop calling it bad.. it is NOT BAD.

Just watched the press conference and interviews
My conclusions:
-Man Colin's funny as hell
(he should be in the press room more)

-Marco said Dovi was stronger on the brakes and couldnt find a way past(HRC loving their buffer)

-Dovi said he was as comfortable riding like Casey with the back end out of line(Maybe dirt tracker have more feel)

Ask all the other riders who they think is the best out there.....who they fear the most, no matter what bike he's on...even if they hate him they'll still say Stoner.

In fact on a secret ballot it would most likely be Rossi who is disliked the most by all other riders.

Probably right there Dave.Interesting that Casey seems to get along well with most even if he has had problems with riders getting careless out there they sort it out.Like how he says it like it is-no bullshit.Refreshing.Real.

I don't think Stoner is so comprehensively better than Pedrosa than people seem to think. Dani is an exceptional rider, Stoner may beat him more regularly than the other way round but it is harsh to say that Pedrosa did nothing all these years on a Honda, not until this year was it the best bike, and when you have JL, CS, DP and VR they are very evenly matched so the best bike is essential to win the title.

I agree G-banger, you don't see much hate for Casey amongst the other riders. He does wave his arms around a bit much during practice when someone wants a tow. As the fastest guy out there he is going to have to live with that. He should take it as a compliment on his speediness.

When he wins I see almost ever rider congratulate him.

He shared his data with Nicky, and it now appears Dovi and maybe Dani. I don't see any walls in his pit box.

Just because their is no filter between his brain and his mouth does not mean he is a bad person.
