usual wet weather suspects for this group.
but, wet races are never 'exciting' unless you are one of those ghouls he awaits a crash.

very sad this weather...

however, well done Cal. showing you are the full package.

the only thing I don't get.. and this really does confuse.. why do the Dukes do well in the wet? if as stated, they are light on the front, aggressive power deliver, evil handling, how come in the wet, where good handling is a premium we see them up there?

yes I have both ridden and raced in the rain. set up is important, but an aggressive two stroke (which is what I raced and rode mostly on the road till I started riding Dukes) and thus the similarity if you like to the Ducati GP, is just a nightmare and one is waiting on a high side.

what gives.. truly interested as I don't get it.

@Stan

what a dolt I must be.. there I was making a completely non controversial statement about wet weather races and riding.. wondering why the dukes do better in the rain.
not liking wet races as people get hurt and frankly they stretch out and there can be almost NO DICING and lo and behold.. I was making a statement about wet weather not being what Casey Stoner wants.

no idea how I did that, but I apologise.. clearly a rabid Stoner fan I must be..

let me see, owned Ducatis since 1978. desperate for Ducati to get a win... no that does not count... most definitely I am a rabid Stoner fan..

@Stan, you and your ILK, ... I am doing now what Bikenut said.. ON GOES THE FILTER and yes, I think someone else was correct.. it is an excrement filter.
