Sorry, folks. I have been back in school working on my doctorate. I haven't been able to devote as much time as I would like to these threads.

Immediately after the crash he said it was Iannone's fault. Reading the one article, it seems he's changed his tune with some time to reflect.

Something tells me he's going to have a long season...

In the press conference he said he started off the season (testing) on the wrong foot because he wanted to lower the bike to make it more Yamaha-like. It turns out this was a mistake because after they switched the bike back to its normal height and he started adapting his riding style he felt a big improvement that he wasn't able to display cos of his crash. We will see how big of an improvement it turns out to be.

On an unrelated note, I love how when Iannone is involved in your crash his first reaction is to blame it on Iannone )) To be fair, it's quite unusual for Iannone not to deserve any blame



I just saw Max already posted an article about the bike height - I'm late to the party as usual.

Also, who here thinks Jorge won't win a single race this year? Better yet, will he even podium? After all, the GP field is sooooo deep, and Maverick is clearly the guy to beat this year.

The season certainly looks to go down that way but I'll refrain from making any predictions - we all remember what jk750 and Ballmead predicted about Rossi and we all saw how that turned out
