@RawDawg - such shame you started on the yellow sheep! I was agreeing withing with you in the first few posts before you blindly attacked Rossi fans.

The bike is a dog. Would Casey be winning on it? I don't know, with the edge Honda came out with at the start of the season I don't think so, but never say never.

Personally I that that Rossi's biggest asset is also his biggest issue: His biggest asset is being ablw to work with the feel of a bike and make it dance. The problem seems to be that as the Ducati doesn't have any he can't work his magic.

I think that Casey has the same problem, just the other way around. He doesn't need feel he just wrings it's neck until he falls, having an unshakable beleif that the bike will not fall. The problem there is when it doesn't work (to be fair not that often on the Honda :p) he struggles.

Both are superb riders, just with a vastly different way of riding. I do fear the day Casey gets a big fall and big injury - should he lose confidenc

Contrary to the crash.net myth that Stoner is incapable of setting up a bike, his ability to set up the Ducati to be able to win indicates just how good at set up he actually is. No one else, not even the goat has come close.

Another example of this is how he and his team dealt with the tyre issues apparent at Mugello and managed to find the right set up to win at LS. If he was the hopeless goon that many would have us believe, then they would not have been able to sort of the tyre problems.

Also, Rawdawg generally is on the money (but can be somewhat aggressive in his tone). Pointing out that Ducati is having a crap season is not sniping at them, it is simply a statement of fact. Rossi's move to Ducati has been a complete disaster so far. In fact he seems to be slower on the GP 11.1 that was developed by and for him? Big problems ahead for Ducati if they don't find a way to start at least fighting for podiums on a regular basis.

Raw Dawg,we already spent 5 of our 8 days of allowed testing so we don't see a point of using remaining days at this point of development. Hope you can understand that.
Respectfully Yours

@ Stacey

dont get me wrong but honest Casey would have atleast a single race win with that red ducati if he was there! and he would have been on podium more than Rossi has been this year, dont get me wrong thou its just my opinion!

Have to say I think it sux not having the 3 manufacturers going head to head on Monday with the 1000's (said as a fan of course). Damn those ducati front end problems, they have been p11sing me off for years now.

And to Suzuki (off topic), grow some balls and buy an alien, invest some money and give your fans something to crow about.
