Jorge will be feeling positive right now with a fairly healthy lead.But you would have to be crackers to rule Casey out after only 5 races.But Honda need to get that chatter sorted out and sharpish or things will play into Yamahas hands.

@Md Zane:

Well said, what is that all about, weight transfer, riders seemed to get along fine before that, it's not Motocross and it's like a contagious disease that's spreading, Rossi has a lot to answer for.

@ Md Zane and there there now

You can't be serious! Lorenzo dangles the leg too.

A quote:

"The move - taking his foot of the footpeg, dangling it as if almost preparing to slide it on the ground dirt-track style, before finally picking it up and putting it back on the footpeg, ready to help tip the bike into the corner - has become Rossi's trademark, but he is no longer alone in his leg waving. One by one, the rest of the grid have taken on the move, and it has spread to riders in every class, from MotoGP to 125s to World Supersport. First Marco Melandri and Loris Capirossi followed Rossi's example, then Max Biaggi, then the current generation of Dani Pedrosa, Casey Stoner and Jorge Lorenzo. Now, just about everyone is doing it, all the way down to club racers."

That's strange coming from you, as your pretty sensible normally, just copying it because Rossi does it does not make it right or effective, is it proven to help direction change, or weight transfer or any parameter wot so ever, because i have seen no evidence, as i said they did not need it prior to it's first use by Rossi, so why now.
