    Moto GP 2017


    With testing starting, may as well start this now.

    Any ideas on what Ducati is up to with this thing?

    My guess is some kind of data acquisition. Probabably just for the test mule

    Hoping Rins continues to recover and that he and numbnuts can keep advancing Suzuki's program...

    Re: Moto GP 2017

    Maybe they relocated some components aft to help keep the rear tire in contact during hard braking? And easier to access?

    About two months from Round 1!

    Yes, the whole thing is shaping up nicely - we've had a few golden years as of late.

    On Day 1 and again on Day 3 (he didn't ride Day 2). But there's about 6 more in the 59's after Day 3. Curious how many did a "time attack" on a soft tire....

    Vinales saying he was on a used tire the whole test to work out race strategy. If so, the grid is in a lot of trouble.
    He's going stupid fast/consistently already.

    Seems that way now, but testing and racing are really different things, especially in this class. It's rare that someone dominates testing and then dominates the races.

    And then you have the GOAT Rossi sometimes not doing well in qualifying only to run at the top in a race.

    Nick alluded to the fact that on day 3 we would see some faster times or hot laps.
