Or

More likely NOT.

How quickly boppers forget .....

Remember when rossi was going to give us our comeupance on the Ducati.

Nice deflection, Barry.
Has nothing to do with what I said though.

Top 10 inside Stoner's "ERMEGERD SO AMAYZING" time now.

Sylvain Guintoli is 20th on a GSX-RR Suzuki.

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.
Shows how cack the Suzuki is if Guinters is down there.

Once again, those of your ilk seem more obsessed with Stoner than those who were actually his fans when he raced, some time ago now.

I am happy to see the show start up again, and encouraged by Jack Miller's early form. He is just the kind of madman who might meld with a Ducati. My wish is for Ducati success in general in any case.

Yes, I am the one who spent two pages waxing lyrical over his lap time. OK, then.

Yamaha 1-2. Both riders seem very happy with the new frame and engine direction. Sign of good things to come...

Glad the action is back.
A few surprises:

* VR nearly fastest and from the beginning of the tests very fast allthogh it's just testing and we know VR is not looking for fast lap times
It seems the new M1 is back for beeing handsome

* Jackass proofed that the Honda isn't easy to ride and the most special bike in the field

* Ducati as strong as I predicted but let's see how they are performing at tracks like PI

* Maybe the 2018 Honda fits Pedrosa better, but MM will give him a hard time again even if the new RCV is more rider friendly

* Stoners time is 2 seconds off the pace... No one knows what he was testing. So, he doesn't want to race again and so we will never know if he is as fast as he was.

Tomorrow will be a very interesting last day at sepang, hoping the weather will be ok and so the riders.

They were the only lap times to discuss then, and it was not I who waxed lyrical about Stoner's time. My contributions as I recall were to agree with Gaz that Stoner's lap times were irrelevant if there was no prospect of him ever racing again, which I believe to be the case, and that imo Hailwood and Lawson are the leading contenders to be the greatest rider if there is such a thing as a greatest rider, particularly on the score of versatility.

You also don't seem to have the perspicacity to realise that the first assumption in regard to any post by Barry Machine is that he is taking the urine, although he does know his bikes if he chooses to be serious.

The M1 does look more pointy like the beautiful 2006 version. I like that.
The past few years, the design had gotten more and more bloated.

MotoGP is all about Form following function, but the slow fuglification of one of the prettiest bikes on the grid was rather noticeable.

Different track conditions from one day to the other.

Stoner, was TESTING - not seeking lap records.
