I didnt know that we had to be so literal when discussing things on Wild Dogs, my mistake.

So to be clear then just for the sake of moving on. Not everyone.

I'll go and calculate the percentage of people being negative and compare it to people being positive and give you feedback on the correct percentage of people against the colours. :o

happy?

moving on. ::)

No, not happy and most certainly not moving on.  You have yet to report back on your findings after the + and - comparison.  Step on it please.

You are now #2 on my "F*ck*r to be Nuked" list for rolling your little eyes at me.  Pasopa!   >:D

Side note:  I saw in another thread some dude singing your praises because you never insult people.  I thought to myself, "that can't be right. Fuzzy calls me an idiot at least once a week."   >:D

I don't recall calling you an idiot once a week..  I usually try to be as respectful as possible.

As for rolling my eyes.. did you mean these eyes  :laughing4: :laughing4:

All good, we all love GP here and I for one am very happy with the Repsol Livery seeing as I have 2 Repsol bikes.

Suzuki unveils.  No major change except for the addition of the Monster Energy logos.  Can this be an early indication that there will be a VR46 Suzuki team on the grid in coming years?

BB also put the hammer down early last year, and that petered out, so let's see what happens.

Yamaha seems to be a bit worried about testing and first two races at Losail, as they do well there, but start struggling in Europe.

With all it's woes, and I admit there were many, Yamaha still topped KTM in the manufacturer's championships....... O0

Seriously, Dom, Brad himself expressed unhappiness about his rookie year mistakes, basically throwing away a chance at better points.

And so they should having been in MotoGP forever unlike KTM!

Pretty normal rookie year IMHO with some brilliant rides in the mix that gave him the Rookie of the Year trophy. Obviously he will kick himself for the over exuberance on occasion.

No anti-Brad sentiments from me, he himself expressed an opinion that he made stupid mistakes. He still did well though.

Also, in today's world of racing, it means nothing that you have been racing for a long time, things are too much on edge, and changes happen too quickly.

Given enough money an outsider can win a title. Has KTM not won titles in the smaller classes of GP?

I don't know and I haven't been able to figure it out.  It doesn't say in the key to the table either. 

Sunday testing final times:

I heard Brad had 2 falls, as had a number of others.

I guess finding the limit is partly what testing is for.

I read that a lot of riders went down in turn 2 as the temp was dropping.

KTM were testing and working on their holeshot device which will now be working on the front suspension as well as the rear and were no that concerned with putting in fast laps.

He crashed once on Day 1 and twice on Day 2.  Hopefully he does all his crashing during testing.  It is difficult to draw conclusions from such early testing though, as we don't know what exactly which bike was testing.

Like Blockhead said, they were testing a new holeshot device and tere is a good chance that some of the bikes were testing their new engine.

For the next two days of testing at Qatar, Cal Crutchlow's bike will wear this special livery as Yamaha commemorate 60 years of motorcycle racing.
