Hmm Dukes 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th in their second race. Me thinks they had better get some weight on them as for such a new bike to be so commanding so quickly sounds like the start of the Ducati cup all over again.

Well done Fonsi. That was a very good ride.
Anybody know what's with the commentators on WSBK website, geez I thought they were gona pop down to the paddock and lay it on for Bayliss.,it was embarrasing..
As a motorcycle race fan it was really dissappointing to see the ducs so dominant in their first race and a sure sign that the powers at be did very little in terms of research before allowing a homolagation special in and not your bog standard road bike(wish I could afford on though!), think they may have to ride pillion at PI(this is probably their worst track!!!). Still if your a ducati fan the racing was pretty good...

The Ducati's were the slowest bikes there....well except the kawasaki's, the ducati's made time in the corners they look like they have parity thats for sure.
Just becuase Troy, Rueben and Max are ultra fast doesnt mean the bikes should be slowed down the 1098 is the heaviest has less power then the I4's and the slowest on the straights.....thats why they kept getting passed.

That's exactly my point Ace, slowest bike, fastest track and still the fours cannot touch them...if you heard TB, it was acceleration out of the corners the Ducs had....parity is in the eye of the beholder...

Had Bayliss,Biaggi and Xaus ridden the Suzuki with the same
results as today nobody would had complain about the bike being
too good!! Ducati have a very good bunch of riders, so the results
tend to reflect that that is the bike that is so fast.

Biaggi just looks to be taking risks, I know it's racing but he's sticking it into corners hard and not carrying it though. I'm not just referring to the Haga incident
