Where's "Advocat". Maybe he was there?

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

I'm thinking that Suzuki has been doing some secret improving given that Chris the V is up there too. Though it's still early days...

Yeah, after I posted my initial, well, post I checked the times and flipped when I saw Loris up there and then followed closely by the Mole. I, for one, am glad to see that, it means that there's hope for a much better battles... well, at least that's what I am hoping for.

Not thrill to see the Kentucky kid all the way down there but I knew that it was going to take him a little while to get on that bronco.

Casey is up there and he said his hands were hurting... sandbagging? I sure hope he is, otherwise, no one is going to touch them later

Alright alright, I know is to soon to tell but I have had cabin fever for the past 3 months... Geeezzz, tough crowd!

I think maybe the Suzuki thing is maybe just a "Bridgestone familiarity" thing.

Nicky will improve and climb the time sheets. He's kinda conservative, as he should be right now......

Dovi looked pretty good last year.....there's gonna be tracks where he'll never catch Dani but wouldn't it be special if he pipped Dani all year long? The motorcycling Gods should make it so......

I got cabin fever too.....WSB starts in a coupla weeks baby!!! Bring it!

How many times do I have to tell you? You can watch the practices and races live at worldsbk.com. It's just not the greatest video quality. The audio is fine. But you can only watch the race live. You don't get to watch it OnDemand online until after Speed Channel shows it.

Slight derail --
WBSK - all right ! I cant wait to see how out boy Spies does !

Back on topic -

Suzuki needed to do something, but, if you look back, they did well in pre-season stuff last year as well, then faded - It still amazes me that a company that can build such a killer SBK has had such trouble with a bike that should allow them to really flex thier engeniering muscle -
Nicky is making me nervous, come on Nicky !!!!
Makes me wonder, is Rossi just holding back to see what everyone else is doing ?

I thought that you COULDN'T watch the race live, only On Demand and only After Speetv had showned it here since they were holding the rights to it. NOt that I don't trust you but I'm check it out again.

Watching in low quality is better than watching 10 laps out of 28 because of all the commercials SuckTv has on it.

ON a side note, NIcky might be in 9th in the 2nd day but I do believe he dropped about a second from yesterday, that's always a good sign... isn't it?
