I often lift a cheek leaving White Castle so as to not ruin my seat but this is a little excessive.

I have a very bad feeling about this (can't you tell? )... I strongly believe that Lorenzo & Rossi will either knock themselves out of the race or, at the very least, the chance for a podium. Rossi has always done extremely good at Catalunya but Lorenzo is very strong and is on his home turf coming out of win on Rossi's turf (Mugello)... hard decisions to be made people!!!

Barren a disaster in my prediction, I have the podium locked, the rest are just guesses.

Lorenzo
Rossi
Stoner
Dovizioso
De Puniet

De Puniet always does good in practices only to wad the bike on the race but so is Edwards and even though Dani did good on practice and qualis, I don't believe he'll go the distance... DAMMIT, I am as nervous as a virgin getting deflowered!!!

BTW, the inside leg hang out entering the corner is certainly trendy.

What a Race???? I must of have been watching an entirely different race then One of the most boring races we have seen in a long time. If it wasn't for the last 4 or 5 laps (if that many), this would have been the pinnacle of what a boring race is.

Sure, Lorenzo followed Rossi for a handful of laps and viceversa, then, what? Oh yes... the las few laps.

Being said that, Only the willy old Rossi could have pulled that rabbit out of his a$$, for better or for worse, and I congratulate Lorenzo for admitting that he is still inexperienced when it comes to blocking or racing defensively. He did say that he never thought Rossi would attempt a pass there... I gotta agree with him

Nope, not cramps, alledgedly and from what I have heard, it helps them settle in for the turn in and get themselves balanced. Illogical if you ask me because it looks totally unsetteling

They have been doing that for the last few years, more so on certain tracks and on certain corners.

Leg hung out

I think it's a braking help, maybe balancing too. Seems awkward, been trying it on my FatBoy but the floorboards get in the way! Scraping floorboards are what it's all about!

Watch the AMA milers, they do it all the time turning left, of course. Harleys always win those!
