Prediction for the year..
Casey will gain new respect from the slow uptakers this year.He will also win the Championship despite the blinkered views by some that frequent this forum.
Yes Rossi finished in better position than last year etc..bla bla.
Problem is Casey is in a far better position in almost every way.We get to see these 2 go at it all season.
Thats great if you can take the results.

I touch myself while thinking of Casey Stoner. Sorry, but it's true.


Casey Stoner is incredible!
Lesson number 1 is complete...
Casey is the fastest man in MotoGP period.
See you soon for lesson number 2 where your education will continue.
I like at a lot.
