Have it on good authority that Gibbers will be leaving Ducati for the newly formed BULTACO motogp effort... bike pictured will be updated with titanium, just like its rider... team name/sponsor is reported to be Team Self-Storage Mothball Bultaco GP... Team principle, the spirit of Sete's grandfather, Francisco "Paco" Bultó has stated, "if some titanium can fix up my grand-sonny,then I'm sure it'll work for the bike also," through a medium/translator.

Ducati will let Nicky go and the balance of the riders (who are A. observant
and B. superstitious) will turn down all offers to fill his position
- until such time that Ducati builds a non-career-killer bike.

<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (Jumkie @ May 6 2009, 07:57 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}><div class='quotemain'>Have you been drinking the Pinky & Aliases juice in which half the forum seems to be drunk on? Ducati signed him because they needed a good rider with the fortitude to give it everything on a machine that has not been mastered by many. Test started to show some promise. During the races, so far its hasn't worked out. Contradict his style? WTF happened to the idea that both Stoner having a dirt track background might have a key to unlocking the Ducati enigma? Hayden, having a similar background was part of the equation in their decision. Marketing? That's it? Are you fucking high? Very stupid statement coming from otherwise a rather smart guy.

Y'know . . . Jum, I generally agree with your posts. But I think you're both right on this. I wouldn't
go so far as to say Hayden is window dressing - but marketing-wise he was a great decision for Ducati. Hayden fans are Hayden fans no matter what (you're clear evidence of that) and if they're the type to buy the bike ridden by their hero - then Nicky is a great choice regardless. I like Hayden as much as anyone - but I think your Hayden-obsession is getting the better of you when you start calling your friends stupid. A little dose of objectivity wouldn't kill you bro.
