Someone always says its only testing. Not so. They are all 'testing' their kit and tallent against the timing systems. Anyone who thought Dani would be compromised by a 1000cc bike just found out. I suspect Casey is nonplussed and Ben just getting on with business. Sadly missed are George and Nicky today.
Hey ! SwissJudge...Be the Judge of the timing charts and Tissot efficiency. All in jest. Tomorrow is another day :)

All sounds good except those CRT bikes! They need to do something big and soon or we are going to have a Rolex style championship with two different classes running at the same time.

....actually, that might be kinda cool!

I think Southerner is right. Pedrosa is going to beat them all next year.
Actually, it is so clear already I even do not know why they are going do run all those races next year.
Yeah, I think they should hand over the cap to Pedrosa now.

CRTs should even be allowed on the track with the gp bikes, they'll just cause accidents and mess up the times for the real bikes. You don't see MOTO3 and MOTO2 sharing track time. Anyone blind enough not to think that the CRTs will be lapped before the halfway point in a race knows nothing about motorcycle racing. PERIOD.
Cynical? Negative? yes, but I'm no fool. There is nothing shown that could contradict my opinion. It's as blindly viewed as any Ducati being competitive in 2012. No one in there right mind believes that either. I feel bad for Hayden and Rossi, wasting another valuable year of their career fighting for 5th.
Fact: gp is now, and will be, a 4 bike race for the podium and that's all. fargin joke!
