Lorenzo will be pleased.

Cal to Ducati?
Speed Blue SL 1000 Falco
Harley Davidson....the most efficient way to turn petrol into noise without the embarrassing by-product of horsepower..

Damn - that's screwed up the better move for Cal ... though I bet Dovi would have been given the ride ahead of him.

I still think Cal would be better to sit tight on a Yamaha - even a Tech3 .... but maybe that option isn't there if Dovi decides to stay.

I'm hearing that Dovi will be alongside Hayden on the Factory Red bikes next year...

Hardly surprising Rossi was sidelined for about 3 months from his accident to getting back to fitness.

So why doesn't Lorenzo leave and go ride a bike that was a long way off the front?
