I think it's funny that the Stoner fans call the Rossi fans dillusional when they are just as bad, it makes me LOL!

There seems to be good signs coming from Mugello, that's what Alex Briggs is saying!

For all of those who think that the twin spar perimeter frame is a Japanese innovation, think again. Maybe the Italians didn't invent it but they were the first to make it work...can you say Bimota?
Well gpone shows a picture of Hayden with an aluminum swing arm. Like I said before, it is time to get rid of the CF because the was a possibility of it storing energy and releasing to quickly.
Like someone already said the trellis frame was not consistent. And the CF takes too long to change and isn't ready for prime time. Ducati just took too long to come to the realization that they needed to jump on the bandwagon, then after they did ALL of their test days were rained out. Finally they are on the right track.

re: "This sounds promising, here's to a competetive Ducati+rider package and Suzuki back in 2014"

no, this sounds like unhealthy fantasizing (ie. escapism) to put off having to deal with the nuclear bomb stoner just dropped. get your fill of ducati while it lasts and do i really need to discuss the merits (or lack thereof) of anything SUZUKI says they are going to do...? you think that hammamatsu's building a bike for a moving set of goalposts...? the rules in 2014 are gonna be what...?

re: "Like someone already said the trellis frame was not consistent."

who said that...? foggy...? polen...? bayliss...? corser...? hizzy...? shakey...? anybody that matters...? the aformenentioned have all won MULTIPLE titles using a trellis.

this begs the question then, how does one achieve the "consistency" of repeat championships (some with significant time gaps between) while using something that is supposedly "inconsistent"...? riddle me that batman.
