    The man's a freak.

    Be interesting to see what spec bikes people will be on

    Edit: Roman was saying they are working on a couple of things these days that they want to finalise in the 2018 bike, namely new forks, swing arm and weight placement

    Interesting to see LCR Honda is running two different sponsors, one for each rider

    I believe that LCR did that previously with Randy DePuniet. Depending on country, the sponsor changed.
    Playboy, Pata, etc.

    Makes sense as Cal is one demographic and Taka is a different one.

    Plus they both get "title" sponsor roles (which theoretically means LCR gets 2x title sponsor money).

    Having Herve Poncharal in the commentary box really is super interesting. I wouldn't mind if that were a regular thing.

    Abraham almost made it the entire test without crashing. The looks on the crew's faces told a story.
    I don't care about my apathy.

    Yep LCR couldnt afford this on their own. As it is I think a lot of funding is coming from HRC. Afterall they already had Taka on the books. Signed Cal this year at the expense of Marc VDS and Jack Miller. Idemitsu have been along for the ride following Taka up.from Moto2.

    Marc VDS are the better funded team but they get the short end of the stick which Bartholemy was pretty clear about during testing. Especially as Honda wpnt supply them next year. He said Morbidelli will have to settle for fighting foe 14th to 15th.

    Aprilia might have done a Lowes with him for the first day. See how you go on the old bike before we give you a new bike. His times early on were pretty good for the track conditions and managing a new bike.

    They would have been doing a lot of set up too, riding position, bars, seat type, pegs etc.

    For sure. The first thing I thought when he went out was "he looks rather huge on that bike".

    I don't think that is going to buff out.

    If so Roscoe is off to a bad start.

    Finally got signed back up on MotoGP.com.

    Roscoe was on the 16 bike with the 18 engine and crashed it on his second lap and says performance is better but the rear grip issue hasn't been fixed.

    He and Vinny had a mix of cobbled together bikes to try and find a path to follow for next year. lol
