@ shamarone re: if you consider the 4 championships he's already won on a bike that was designed around him it bodes well for the future. Well lets consider the vast changes to tyre construction and the fact the man hasn't ridden the bike in 2 years. You clearly disregard the fact that I was referring to that fact he has only tested the current iteration of the M1 twice. Sure the bike WAS designed around him. But clearly significant changes to the bike have been made since then. He may have won 4 championships upon the M1, but he rode around on an uncompetitive and dynamically inconsistent Ducati for 2 years whilst his old team mate won consistently, and subsequently developed his old bike. I don't think I said anything that is worthy of reproach or criticism in my first post though I may be wrong. I would hazard a guess that as a package the current M1 is probably quite different to his original machine?
