the rain is following the premier class around the world.
perfect moto3 sessions and rain immediately after for motogp , its like a script.
so is the chatter.
they need total dry weekends for a bit or they will never get the chatter under control.
damn those slides stoner rakes out are impressive.

Well, I'm not surprised by Stoner's pace but he didn't mention what tyres he was running on. There are strong possibilities that the race tire is going to be the hard one and Dani didn't even tried it. Its all up in air now, Lorenzo crippled but fast, Stoner with chatter and possible tyre issues, Pedroza fast but uncertain about his tyre choice and fitness, Freaking wheather is ruining everything again...Way too many wet/damp races.

Dani has no chatter, he doesn't mention it. and seems happy with the new frame.
maybe it's just stoners riding style. way to aggressive!

and standing 1-2-4 for honda the tyres seems good for them to.

And Casey has won more races when they have both been on factory bikes and racing against each other...

As for Casey having more chatter problems then Pedrosa, both Beattie and Doohan have said it is due to him loading the rear more and Danny loading the front. It has always been a major differnece between Casey and any teammate except Hayden. Seems to be a difference between the European riders and the Aussie/American riders. I think rear chatter is not as disturbing as front where it must impact your confidence.
