wonder why suzuki is farting around with last years frame. I am sure its good and works but would seem to me there a little behind the power curve (no surprise) by not having a new frame to test as well with the old frame. :-\

Wow just watched the 800 tests and Nickys got the #1 plastered all over that HRC bike. Even on the rear tire fender. Guess that 69 is gone for this year anyway.

Back to the tests

Also the tail section on the Honda is FUGLY. Hope they don't "trickle" that down to production. Guess thats why the #1 is on the rear fender. No room on the tail section cause it ain't there.

Rossi back on top

http://www.crash.net/news_view.asp?cid=6&id=139779

;D
Valentino Rossi bounced back from his title defeat by putting the new 800cc Yamaha on top of the post-season testing timesheets, at Valencia on Wednesday.

The Italian, who lost out on a sixth consecutive premier-class crown with his fifth lap fall in Sunday's season-ending grand prix, not only put the 2007 Yamaha at the head of the 800cc field - but was also the fastest 990cc rider, beating Sunday's best race lap set by Ducati's Loris Capirossi, by 0.224secs!

That was enough to keep Rossi just 0.03secs clear of Fortuna Honda's Toni Elias, riding a 990cc RC211V, who made an impressive start to his new Bridgestone career by lapping 0.9secs faster than he had on Michelins during the grand prix - with team-mate Marco Melandri a fraction slower for third at the end of day one.

Fourth fastest overall was Rossi on his 800cc machine, but Capirossi was just 0.01secs slower on the new 800cc Ducati. The Marlboro rider was 0.41secs slower than The Doctor's 800cc pace and just 0.03secs ahead of Rizla Suzuki's John Hopkins, who completed the top six.

Haystick was back in 11th
