there there now

I know, today aim not him a good day so i get angry more fast, 4sure i dont have reasson to be!! I trust on Rossi capabilitys so thats enaught, but its sad to come to here and wach so many bullsh$t talcked about him.!! I was just waching here a video of the superpole of 2008 on Wsb that was the first year of Ducati 1098r and just to give an exemple of one weack engine him top speed like is a Vtwin but that give a good totthel feel and the torque is big and very esay to used, wacth what it can do with one professional rider, I chosse 2008 because the bikes are lower him Power compared to 2012.. Troy Bayliss did a lap of 1:31:4, better then today Gp12.. Maybe would have been better to Ducati when they 1 think on enter him Motogp on having worcked to build a super Vtwin has they talcked about..

I'm guessing Ducati won't improve much next year. They had a very special rider who could make it win (Stoner) but he wasn what you would call a development rider. Or perhaps he is but they didn't care to listen to him. What you will see is the Yamaha getting better next year with Rossi back on board. Looking forward to Rossi getting back to Yamaha. I can see Spies back in WSBK next year after 3 or 4 races.

We should hope ducati will be better... if not, it's only honda n yamaha, except all turn to moto1.
With CRT is getting better... who knows what will happen in 2015 ?

Probably crash it.
He seemed good at that as i remember......roland butter.

I also seem to recall he won 23 times on it Roland.How many times has Rossi won on it?

Looks like you have landed butter side down mate.

lol...same bashing going on here eh ???

some saying rossi cant be called a GOAT since he cant ride the Ducati....

well seeing lorenzo and pedrosa havent tried the ducati to date, there surely must be something wrong with this logic of yours since they two ARE GOAT's......

BTW while stoner was good on the ducati, that was on the 800cc....the 1000cc has traction problems and comparing todays times with 2 years past is foolish....ya, surely he would manage to get on he podium say with the ducati but it cant compare with the honda....enough said

I think it's time Rossi put that wreck of
A bike to bed.
What about nickey ? Why dose he not preform
On it? Lord knows he's ridding it long enough To
Now to know the ins and outs of it .
Is Rossi finished ?I think not I will bet my house
He will be 2nd or at worst 3rd next year and poor
Old dovi won't know what to do on that duke
He'll wish he stayed with the tec 3s next year

@Vilas what do you mean when you say Phillip Island is a very long race? There isn't much difference in race distance between the races, all being within about 5 or 6km of each other. Sure PI is at the longer end of the scale at 120km, but 5km isn't much of a difference.
