Rossi's New RIde

Rossi took his first spin on the Yamaha today. He's over a full second of the pace of the Hondas... but faster than his teamates. Here's a picture. I like the bare carbon color scheme.

He had overall positive comments about the bike. He knows he's got a long road ahead of him. This is going ot be the best season of racing ever. 3 solid teams and even Kawi is looking like a solid performer atop the "best of the rest".

Ditto on that Ohfugit. If anyone can make this work it's VR. I saw the vid of him taking it out the first time, very impressive for a machine that he's not very used to or comfortable with(yet). Once they dial it in for him it should be a great show and great year for racing.
