Cool Edwards on the Honda

from motogp.com:

"It is so smooth that it feels slow - although evidently it's not," explained the American, who left the circuit at 2pm to return home to Texas. "The Aprilia was abrupt, peaky and 'torquey' but this thing is smooth - it has power everywhere. You can think of where you're going as opposed to where you've just come from - there's no need to gather yourself together, you can concentrate on what's next.

"I have obviously ridden quite a few bikes in my time and, after a couple of hours on this thing? I don't know if anybody can build anything to beat it.

That is obviously just my own opinion but everything just feels so right. It will be difficult to build something to beat this thing."




lol!! them's fighting words!!! Come on April!!!

Uh Oh...I think he will definitely be the man to beat in the coming year/s

The optimist believes that we live in the best of all possible worlds...
The pessimist fears this to be true.

I think it will tank him 1 year, maybe less, to learn the bike then watch out. Wow, 2004 looks to be a fun year in Moto GP.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

from Colin's dad:

...Colin just called me from Madrid, where he and Aly are spending the night before they return to Houston tomorrow...
...He did a total of around 50 laps on Sete's settings and a 17" front tire (that he hasent used since early testing in 2000) and he finished the sesion with his best time of 1:45.3...He said he didnt have a great deal of feel for the front but just stayed in the comfort zone with the settings that he had...He said the bike was amazing and was so stoked and chomping at the bit for the next test in Valencia at the start of next month where he can set the bike up the way he wants it...He didnt want to go into it today and just wanted to use the time to do some laps but said he thinks there is a bunch more yet...
...YEHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA...Snr


for the record:
Times from Catalunya this year are:

Qualifying - Rossi - 1:43.927
Race - Rossi - 1:45.427
