Why not!

I like how Jack said he was going home to summer. Hopefully he gets a leg up on his training and such. When the press dude mentioned he now is the OG with Ducati and would be comfortable in that roll. That got chuckles from him and then went on to expose he was the youngest on the podium.

The big question of course is Marc.
Others:
Anyone hear that Rins is going surgery for sure??
How the hell is Yamaha going to fix their bikes?
And finally...Is Marverick going to change his nick name to PotatoGun?

I propose Yamaha poach all of Suzukis engineers. After all, they figured out how to make a competitive bike with a small budget. If not, it's going to possibly take a major shift in Yamaha corporate thinking. They always counted on the bikes sweet handling to overcome its shortcomings. Not anymore.

Everyone knows more stickers make the bike faster because it looks more serious. That and a quality slip on. Ooh! And a fender eliminator for the back.

Constantly Variable Transmission?

Man, I'm a big WorldSBK fan, but I don't remember Savadori looking like THAT!!

Maybe it's because he's not wearing his helmet.
