The simple fact is,Casey won 23 races on the Ducati.That is way more than anyone else managed.Noone else has even come close.Not even a 7 time premier class title winner.
Yet some here still refuse to believe that it was Casey that made the difference.They stick their heads in the sand and spout the same old sh*t about it being the bike not the rider.
Talk about blinkered!
If it was the bike not the rider,why did Casey thrash his Ducati team mates so comprehensively year after year?
They were afterall on identical bikes right?

Casey has a unique way of riding, so can anyone really believe that Honda will make any changes on his recommendations?
Codger.

Codger,do you really think HRC are giving Casey that multi million dollar bike to ride around on just for a bit of fun?

@hoppy...If all the Honda riders were struggling then there might be some point to getting a retired rider to come in and give them some data and verbal feedback.
What is your take on it?

My take on it is that Casey was the last rider to win a World title for Honda and so his input may well benefit Marc.
He is the new kid on the block and the one HRC are going to nurture.He is roughly the same hight,build and weight as Casey and their riding style is similar.
There is no way Honda are going to this trouble just to let Casey indulge himself.That bike is worth millions and is not going to be given to someone to go out on a jolly!
There is a reason why Casey was asked for his input.

@hoppy.......fair enough, I wonder if we'll ever find out the truth?

I like the relaxed atmosphere in the picture of Casey sitting on the railings.
I guess he's recounting stories of how he beat Rossi so many times.
