Yeah. Those tires, when hot and sticky will grab anything on the track and flip it up, if it doesn't get stuck to the tire. I wonder if there's a regulation in place for the huggers. SHorter tail section, longer hugger. Saves weight.

Nice pic... Does anyone else think this picture could very easily become a "Photoshop this" thread?

Repsol Honda!!! So fast and easy you can ride it with a broken wing!

So i'm kinda stumped here...did Valentino CHOOSE to NOT ride with the #1 plate and stick to his famous 46?

I'm obviously refering to when Vale was THE world campion.

Valentino didn't switch because of the millions in merchandising wrapped aroiund the # 46. Which is also why I doubt Nikcy will be running #1 once it gets back to racing time, I'm sure his sponsors (mostly the ones pumping out #69 merchandise) will want him to stay with the old #.

Rossi didn't switch because 46 is his fathers old racing number. But if you'd look on the back, upper right of his leathers the number "1" is there. But not for the '07 season.

Crappy pic, but you can see it.

he should atleast keep it on the rear wheel hugger if so.
