    Not sure but probably so......if I recall correctly Nicky was on a similar bike and Camier also did some stand in rides on one.

    I believe it had leaf spring suspension as well............

    his 1st year was the Spanish "Go + fun" customer bike.. with Bautista on the RCV ( real one) Redding almost beat him..again finishing most of the races

    that's what Aprilia have opted for.. reasonable pace.. but a full weekend of Data.

    the establishment would hope so.. - why he was "so good" he didn't need to come via moto2

    history appears to show him taking Reddings seat / space at every turn.

    Customer Honda, ( alongside Crutchlow ( VERY alongside in Silverstone..!!)
    Marc VDS - satellite honda,
    Pramac - BOTH on the older style Ducati - Petrux is still on the current model

    You wound me, Nonno.

    By now you should recognize when someone is messing with you. But you take yourself so seriously it only makes it more entertainng.

    If you wish to continue you can try in Politics if you wish.

    Bartolemy is clearly very unhappy to have lost him, and he blames Honda......very vocal on the subject during his time in the commentary box during testing.
    I was listening to that, he seemed to rate miller very highly, and basically said Honda weren't going to give him a decent bike so he left.

    Hell yeah Dave! You guys get status too on that front. The best helmet I've ever worn was my Simon Crafar rep' arai! If we can't have an Aussie do it, you blokes are the next best thing. I've said it here before, Crafar beating Doohan at Donnington and Crafar's post race interview was just the best. I sort of developed a real respect for him after that (and you unzedas in general). He was so humble, and seemed to be the most surprised person on the room that he was able to ride a 500 GP bike that quick!

    I hope to meet Crafar one day, I think he's a very decent man, and CAN ride a motorcycle!

    Ive met him once on a track day at Taupo, great easy going guy, and very approachable. he didn't ride but answer questions on track stuff. Slightly is ok, but a he's a little, how do you say it, well if he's getting the $ he will converse readily. But the best guy I've met at track days was Tony Rees, man he's a nice guy, there was a hold up because the ambo had to leave for a road accident, so no track time till it was back, and Tony ask who wanted to go onto the track and went to each corner, and showed us entry lines, he talked about braking points etc, he was awesome. Murphy the car racer was ok to, he had a 1290R and did a few laps, he also got doubled around by Slighty. heres a pick i took.Click image for larger version.
