Tosland in the mix. Let's see if the manufacturers can catch up to the Ducati team.

Yep, gonna be a good one in '08

Kawi is notorious for NOT giving riders the tech to win in GP. I like Kawi, and I wish Hopper the best. But they've got a lot of catching up to do with Ducati, Honda, and Yamaha at this level.

There may be hope for Kawi. Monster Energy is backing them. Plus this...

Looks like they may have been doing some homework this winter

I am too... but really, I'm skeptical.

The benefit of taking other riders' telemetry to make tweaks based on equipment has basically gone out the window with Valentino being on different tires than the rest of the Yamaha team.

If this season is a bust for Vale, his choice to switch is going to look babyish and he's going to have egg on his face.

Really though, Rossi is the GOAT and I'm certainly pulling for him.
