I just heard the politicos are nixing the loan to the big 3 car manufacturers. What an outrage.

25bn is like one month's waste in Iraq. No other country would sit on their hands and watch their entire car industry go down the toilet. I think you guys should start a revolution over there.

Oh great. Financial advice from a socialist. I'll alert the media.

Maybe we could tap into that 1.2 trillion dollars we spend every year making sure people sit home doing nothing instead of earning a living. Just a suggestion. On the other hand, we have plenty of people here wanting them to go under, so a revolution isn't likely. Nice thought though.

I'am sure they could afford it, even with all those kids earning them money on welfare.

Gorgious bikes, cant wait to see em run this year. If no one could beat the 1098's not sure what the chances are of taking a bigger displacment.

The 1098r already had the bigger displacement engine.

Actually, Ducati will be racing the same bike as in '08, the 1198cc 1098R Interestingly, the 1098R in WSB didn't have much success outside the hands of the incredible Troy Bayliss.

Interesting, sad to see old nine fingers go, guessing he wanted to go out on top. Can't argue with that though.
