"This afternoon we kept trying different directions on both bikes and every step we made on each bike, we took big steps forward so we're pretty happy with the set up we have now."
Check out his lap times and you can see what Stoner is saying. A perfect progression.
A slap on the bum for all those who said he couldn't develop a bike.

If "some1" write a "Moaner", it's mean Rossi. If there a number on the sentence, it count how many times he moans.

========================== signature =====================
Rossi is Moaner and Loser and it conclude Rossi is Moaser!

Might be a close race and it might not. Tyres could well play a big part. Even if they all stay on they'll get varying performance from them.
I'll repeat what I said last year, the laws of physics dictate how a tyre can handle the cornering of a bike and it could well be that limit has been reached. Cleverer people than me might be able to prove that 45deg lean angle is the optimum balance, I don't know, I'm pretty sure that it is not the 60degs that they are achieving now.

Too right they are taking nothing for granted!
This is a tough one to call with so many riders separated by such a small margin.Casey will be looking to pull one back on Jorge and Jorge will be looking to steal valuable points fromm Casey and maintain his momentum.But Dani may well chuck a spanner in the works if he can get a good start and keep the pace up for the whole race distance.

BBC presenter Matt Roberts Tweets: "Stoner, Lorenzo and Pedrosa just confirmed in the front row press conference that they will not go to Japan.
I find it astounding. To cut a long debate short, riders are not going as they fear radiation. Apparently all in agreement except Aoyama. This is a developing story so we will try to bring you as much as we can in the show on Sunday.

So a chance for Rossi, then?
