COMMUNICATION- The difference between winning and not.

Maybe the English speaking Spaniard can help his set-up issues. Bike obviously has power. Nicky simply can't make it stick.

No, no, no. Good ole what's his face is leaving to get better oversight on all the data from all the riders who can't make the Duc work

It looks like whatever changes were made since last years testing made everyone except Casey go backwards. Oooops.

This thread dosen't make much sense lads!
Stacey Moaner is about the only rider in the world who can tame the GP9.Nicky has come from a v-5 so be kind to him and don't expect too much in the first season.I have only a passing interest in Moto GP as it's about as interesting as watching paint dry,but Nicky seems to be an all-round gent.

Just goes to show you how much development it takes to get the bike to someones liking, anyones liking besides Stacy Moaner, toche!

Amazing I thought they got rid of the langauge barrier along time ago!

Loved the fact that most everyone thought Stoners, & Haydens dirt track backrounds would render it a easy fit for Hayden.

I'm just glad that at least ONE manufacturer is stepping up its commitment to racing, instead of pulling back.

Nicky's having teoubles, for sure. Maybe if the Jap riders stopped using him for a berm, he'd have a better chance.

High side'n during practice doesn't help either! Beat up and on a tough bike to ride is not a good formula for success. WSB and Spies is where all the good fun is. Nicky has been a little hard to watch. We can only hope the new chief has a magic gas tank!
