Just found out that someone is sticking FPEs into Aprilia RS125/250 (road) chassis. Trying to get details/photos

Nothing has changed. Ducati hasn't built a Yamaha for Lorenzo.

Stoner's last year on the Ducati (aka 2010) was his best one in my opinion.

Winning 3 races with the 2010 Duc, that couldn't stay right even on the straight, was one of the rawest expressions of talent I have ever witnessed in any sport.
