Hopefully they'll refine the plastics.

That bike actually looks like it has an asshole.

Like most Italians Rossi is into aesthetics, he'll urge the engineers to do what they can most likely. Did it when he went to Yamaha from Honda

I think next season will probably be pretty good. But it won't matter because the year after they'll be back on 1000cc machines and everything will change. Either way i cannot wait for Ben to be smoking Rossi.

Also very excited to see how the Dani vs Stoner battle will go in HRC.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!
