Too late panty boy.... Your officially off the Nicky Train!
All aboard! We're going to ITALY!
Does anyone recall what happened the last time Nicky rode a twin? Hmmmmmmm..... I DO!
Seriously... I think the Duc is the bike for him and hopefully (GOD I PRAY) they treat him well with all the goodies Casey gets. I dont know much about the Ducati team and how they operate... I've unfortunately been stuck on HRC!
My next bike WILL BE A DUCATI!
Wasn't on or off the Nicky train my man. As I said, I hope Nicky makes me eat my words.... I did not retract them. It will be interesting to see. If he cannot perform like a Champion on the Ducati, then he is well and truly finished and should pursue a life in modeling or something.
I agree with your comments about him on a V-Twin ala: RC-51 years. And as far as I can tell, Ducati does not play stupid politics - both their bikes are identical, set up for the individual rider though as far as things like suspension, etc. Ducati has also been know to be great at developing the rider and showing great loyalty which boosts confidence and skills. Look what they did with Stoner, the kid can ride but it helped that Ducati not only developed a bike, but put as much effort into developing the rider too.
Time will tell... bring on the 2009 season.
Yeah... FairWeather Fan!!! Go back to your "Nicky has no fire or desire
Haven't changed my comments amigo, I said I hope he makes me eat my words. We shall see. Ducati takes risks on riders choices which is part of why I like them. However, unlike Stoner who had more fire in him than a good bike or total skills, Nicky needs to re-ignite the fire. At least he comes with tons of skills and experience. We shall see.
Oh... by the way.... does this mean Gigerneau races no more????
