boo hoo, there seems to be alot of sour grapes towards ducati.not only here but in moto gp as well. its good to see something other than japanese on top, be it stoner or bayliss or whoever.just like a holden/opel driver that thinks mercedes or ferari are ****, now now children, keep those toys in the pram

TB never (or almost) uses the clutch.
For some reason it works with the ducatis
but not with the japanese.
He may be a genius on the italian machine
but on another bike he wouldn't get a single
podium along the year (as he didn't with sito pons).

OK, where are all the Biaggi is a riding god types then....

Yes I know, he snapped his gear lever before superpole, but come on, the bloke was slower than Jakub Smrz in practice ;)

Foggy may well have been an R's hole but he could actually ride a bike (and without any CC advantage)

Bayliss didn't ride the Honda well because it was too "refined". Moto gp bikes in general are too "refined" when he had his best season in GP (2003 year), the Desmo was raw dog...the following year..they reworked everything and it became a different bike. Get your facts straight...Bayliss came in 6th on a Suzuki bike as a wild card in GP years b4 he became a Ducati rider. He came in second on a Kawasaki bike in a national championship also. He can ride any forkin bike..he just needs it to be mostly motor without the extra high tech crap.
