    Iannone did take a page from his book and hit that bird a few seasons ago. No homo, but Iannone looks better

    I'm particularly thrown by those thinking Suzuki will struggle this season, after they remedied their past engine misgivings and are clearly on the right track. A string of podiums is evidence of their upward trajectory. Rins displayed good speed and shown the ability to stay with the guys up front. On the other hand, KTM appear to still be looking for the right way forward with both their engine spec and chassis. Zarco looked like a fish outta a water his first time out on the bike. Their test riders are banged up. MO looks like he's in the same boat as Zarco. HS is only good for tearing up equipment. His crash damage bill must rival MM's only without the return of investment. Their only podium was more so gifted than a true representation of their competitiveness.

    Suzuki (Rins) will push the Yamahas at even more rounds this season than last ultimately finishing behind both, but ahead of DP on the factory Duc. I think all the KTM riders finish further down the order behind the likes CC and DP.

    KTM = NOT Ready to Ride.

    I'd bet money he'd STILL pull more trim than you could any day of the week.

    Damn. Shout out to Nakagami. It's good to see him up there. I want to see how well he will do this season.

    Years ago, he'd pull into the parking lot in an old cream colored Rolls and a different young hottie would jump out every few days and fetch his coffee from the Starbucks next door to my shop. He'd circle the lot and take off.

    I saw him a couple years ago and told him that I saw him do that for many years. The super buff man friend standing next to him didn't seem so amused by my recalling of that memory. Not sure what that was about but they seemed awfully close, energetically.

    Regardless, the guy is a biker and rides!
