    paul tracy and most of the brazillian champcar and crapwagon drivers are also hardcore cyclists.

    i remember seeing an interview with cristiano da matta where he was showing off his marco pantani socks

    Nick's leading the first practice time at Brno. Rossi is 2/10ths back Pedrossa almost 4/10ths off the best time. Considering Nicky's had to develop the factory bike while Danny has been able to use what ever bit's he chooses to use Nicky's done an excellent job this year. His consistency and levelheadedness will win him this years crown. Next if Yami gets it right Rossi's gonna kill them all!

    This spring, Bianchi and Ducati announced the joint development of a Ducati branded line of bicycles due out in late 2006. Troy Bayliss was on had for that.

    Prior to this (2005), Loris Capirossi was presented a special issue Bianchi, painted red with Ducati labeling. I not quite clear whether Bianchi made a small quantity of these and sold them or if the Capirossi bike was a one-off custom.

    Nice! There's a 748 in my very near future!

    BTW Rossi put down a 1.57.8s to lead the second practice. He's over 2s quicker than this mornings first free practice. Nicky couldn't better his 1.59s from this morning and is in tenth.

    Oooh. Savory carbon goodness? I'd take a Ducati/Bianchi over a Ferrari/Colnago me thinks, although the in-house Renault looked sharp.

    Lucky. I can only dream of making my way to Ashburton Grove some day. I wish I could have been at Highbury for the last game of the season last year. I'm bummed that FSC isn't showing tomorrow's game, but at least I can ride and not worry about missing it.

    Agreed. Unfortunately, I have a suspicion that the price will be similar and therefore more than Iím likely to spend on a bicycle. Itís fun to think about it though.

    I'm not too worried about the comfort, it's going to be a track bike primaraly. Yeah the noise that a Duc makes is just sooo sweet. From the clutch to the exhaust, it's just pure music. A lot of my buddies are saying 'Buy an R6, they are faster and less maintainence' and I just say 'I don't want a motorcycle I want a Ducati!'

    what i learned when i was racing is that most people only think about that in a woulda-shoulda sense. that said, it would be a bummer to dump even an R6 with how much 600's cost these days.

    NH is a BAMF no doubt - playing w/ the big eruopean boys. He is pretty funny if you ever hear him talk - he sounds like Ricky Bobby's kids - waaay southern drawl.

    Moto GP racing is about the coolest racing ever aside from F1. Talk about crazy skill.

    I recently sold the CBR929 which I bought new in '00 and am looking at the new 1000RR from Honda or maybe the R1 for next summer. Yes, track days on rice rockets are what it's all about.

    Ducs look cool but as a whole they are quite 'spensive and much less reliable than Japanese bikes

    Good points. I can just only see it as economical if you were a sponsored racer or were rolling in it. But Im looking at it from a brok 21 year olds perspective as well. If i was really into track days I would buy a 15oo dollar sv 650 and put a gsx-r 600 fork on it and race plastics and run that dog ragged.

    Nicky never says anything bad about anyone else either, neither crew nor other riders. If he loses he says its because he just wasnt as fast as the other guys. A true sportsman.

    Doghair and Roman, I completely understand the costs of racing, I raced Formula Fords and Formula Continentals for almost 20 years. An SV650 would be the "best" track day bike as it's a cheap buy in and reasonable to maintain and replace when I lay it down. I can get a low mileage 748 for about 2k less than an new R6 and like I said I don't want a motorcycle I want a Ducati. I will never 'race' this bike it will be for track days and the occasional ride in the country. I'm a pretty passionate guy when it comes to my machines and an R6 or an SV650 don't really turn my crank. I was pretty much ready to go the SV route then I stopped by Pro-Italia in Montrose and just about lost it. I realized that it's Duc or nothing (actually if I hit the lottery that MV Senna would look pretty nice in the garage!).

    Yeah, totally on the same page. If you want a duc and can afford a duc...****, I would buy a duc too. But like i said, Im 21 and broke... its a bit out of my league. Post pics when you get one though, thats a dead sexy bike.

    Every manufacturer so far has pretty much stated it isnt gonna make a difference. They are all saying thet they can put out the same horsepower they are putting out now.

    they should never have switched from two-strokes, anyway.

    I really want to buy and RC51 and paint it up in the Repsol colors.

    This mornings results from free practice 3 at Brno:

    Capirossi
    Malndri
    Rossi
    Pedrosa
    Edwards
    Hayden

    Nicky is more than 5/10ths off the pace.
