      Thanks Ken..

      Ya.. I thought the testing is underway, so why don't we roll with it too.

      Can you move last (or last two) pages of post of the 2010 thread to this one and lock the old one, if possible.

        2011. Valentino Rossi. 10 time world champion?

        i like the question mark on his helmet.

        hope VR gets everything right on the Desmo right from the start of the 2011 season.

              Inmotec provide further details on MotoGP project | The Official MotoGP Website

              Inmotec showed the bike to press last friday. Though they say their Moto2 bike will be ready for track by march 2011. As for MotoGP, they want a team to use their bike, don't think they'll form a team of their own. Maybe coz it involves lot of money to run a team.

                Wow, was waiting for this thread and @ xionite: nice pic to start with
                I'm wondering why Rossi has put that question mark, has he commented on it during any interview, any news about it?
                Not worried about the timings at all cause he always starts like this and from the video it's clear that he was not pushing at all and moreover the settings might not have suited him. But then just cant wait to see what the doctor is going to do with the 'extra horses'
                Young riders pick a destination and go, Old riders pick a direction and go !

                      Me too in the bandwagon

                      Interesting video if KR stuff can come back...
                      YouTube - Two stroke power

                      There goes Biaggi (red), there goes rossi (repsol)

                      Edit: I mean I am not saying two-strokes should come back but what if the privateer teams (aka CRT, Claiming Rule Team) could come up with an engine/prototype which can outrun everybody else on the track really interesting, ain't it?

                          Stoner has indeed got very comfortable on that Honda, pretty quickly..

                          But.. whats up with Tony Elias, he's slower than Rookie Karel Abraham on a bike he's familiar with!

                            moreover since rossi has been banned to comment on his ducati debut by Yamaha, we don't know exactly whats going through his mind after his first ride on the desmodicci

                              You have to wait till April 2011 to see who is where. Though when winter session starts (Feb?), it should be an indicator of things to come.
                              I agree and understand that very well...

                              It's just that he's too far off the pace, almost 2.6sec slower & he'd raced RCV before.

                              Winter Session will be held on Feb 1,2 and 3.
