    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'
