I love the Bati/Suzuki pair, his riding style fits well on the blue bike, aesthetically speaking, I'm a real fan.

I know the gsv-r isn't the best bike out there, But dude, you get it, this week-end is just frustrating.

Sachsrenring's result was great, but you can't fall that much when you're fighting for the 6th place. Motogp's the place where only the best belongs.

Don't waste your next opportunities please !

Damn..!! Why when all things just seems to go well, he must ended up in gravel? Jeezz.. But what can you do, sometimes bad luck come from nowhere and suddenly bad things happens..
Nevermind.. Now it's make me more believe that the bike is improving quite well.
Keep the fighting spirit burning and get yourself PREPARED for next race in Brno.
GO AB19 AND SUZUKI..!! Change & Challenge, and charge to the front..!!

pcxmac: I really don't get your comment, "he needs to realize that hes not faster than the two factory ducatis", he was catching the 2 factory Dukes by 0.4 sec/lap when he crashed in Laguna. He already proved he could catch, (and beat them), in Sachsenring. So what do you base your comment on???
I think the Suzuki/Alvaro combo has grown lately and I reckon he will be racing Dovi/Spies in the next few races. He just needs to get his Qualifying sorted out and start from the 2nd to 3rd row, then he could be straight onto the next group and wouldn't need to waste time catching and passing Barbera,Edwards, Crutchlow etc.

Yes he did a few laps (10,11,12) that brought him closer to Hayden/Rossi but obviously it was too fast so he crashed. He did a 22.5, 22.6, 22.8 then crashed. Rossi did a 22.5 and almost crashed so he backed off so as far as I can see he wasn't "outriding" the duc's he was overriding his suz. Sure Rossi could do 22.5's but he might have crashed. Just like stoner last season. Did fast times but too often he crashed. Also, Rossi and Hayden lapped between 22.8/9-23.1 all race which is where Bautista was b4 he tried to do too much. I like the fight he had in him however.

So you're meanning Alvaro was fast enough to give the Ducati Marlboro a good fight. That being said, #19 is well known as being awesome in these battles. Everytime Bautista finishes ahead of the whole Ducati pack is a good thing.
Sorry, I'm rooting for the underdog.
