Colin's the man, but I wish he woulda signed my HRC hat at Suzuka! No worries.

As a proud owner of a Mille I guess I'm just elated to have a supremely skilled, no b/s rider like Edwards at the helm of Aprilia's GP bike. With Edwards AND Haga now going up against Rossi, Barros, Bayliss and everyone else...damn...it's going to be a season to remember.

I like Colin's down to earth style. I hope he does well even though he is not on a Honda any more.



Cheers

Merv.

I had hear that somewhere else about Bostrom. He had wanted last years bike because it was better with Dunlops but Ducati wouldn't let him run it for reasons unknows (but probably obvious) so he had to deal with rear end chatter all season... Sounds like Mladins issue too. He complained about the same thing.



Dunlop needs to get their act together.

You get to have drinks and talk with the World Champion and the best you can do is Chevys? Man, you guys suck! Please tell me you didn't stick him with the tab...

Well, being a fellow Texan, Chevy's might have been Colin's idea as it's decent TexMex and passable margaritas.



I only have one fear of where Colin may have underestimated. Hauling the baby around! As a new dad myself I'm continually amazed at how much infrastructure you have to haul around to support a little bitty kid. Aprilia will probably have to buy a second transporter!



The best to Colin, he has the sportbikers and MX'ers in the Lone Star state rooting for him!



In my dreams, I beat him at Oak Hill.

That was great, I learned a new use for "F*^ck Off!" That's why the Honda moto-GP team picked Hayden, they can't stand rough edges, they want someone they can mold/control. And they didn't want Colin whipping Rossi's butt! Too bad! Colin's gonna to do it on an Aprilia!

Default Good job MO

I love this stuff. I love Edward's attitude. Go Tornado! MotoGP is going to be fun to watch.

Given what I know about Colin, someplace like Chevy's is what I expect he would prefer.



And, given his reported $6million contract with Aprilia, he can better afford the tab than can MO -- although I am fairly confident that we did, in fact, pick it up.



This is one of the best interviews with Colin I have read -- good job guys, let's try get more. Maybe you could arrange a semi-regular series of reports through the season -- perhaps with Nicky as well.
