Funny. Normally Brad attracts loads of comments. Oh, wait a minute, there are normally pages of armchair critics spouting Ill informed nonsense :).

Well done Brad. A few of us had faith. Fair play to those who admit Brad has surprised them.

Ok I'll be that guy.. I'm neither surprised nor impressed. He's exactly where I expected him to be- the last of the hondas/yams and barely ahead of the ducatis. Got a half second gap to bautista so still plenty of work to be done. This is where he will be come seasons end that is if the ducatis don't step it up, which is all you can expect of a rookie on a sat Yamaha.

Well, masses of bashers were queuing up to dish out some bile long before he got a chance to try the bike - Bradley threads would have a lot more posts and 75% or more would be negative.

Seeing as the odds of succeeding are far lower than the odds of failing, its always dead easy to say 'fail' and try to look clever about it. Not so many will fess up & say they were wrong, they'll just slither away.

Well, he's got a lot to do and early days yes, but nice to see a good showing and a solid decent finish to the test. Maybe even shut up a few of the bashers!

Yapping so much?

He is playing the game, and doing so very well. He is the one with the MotoGP ride after all. And now he is showing early signs of delivering on the bike.

Good to See Brad settling down and being methodical, I wont be suprised if he's beating Cal by mid season, yeah he's got lots to learn but coming up through the ranks, he's got no SBK hang upe either.

One thing I cant get my head round though is people moaning that he talks too much! the other side of that fence was the Ex world champ that didn't talk enough, and left his fans cold. Some folks are never happy.

Good On ya Brad keep it up. :)
