The Ducati GP racer

The Ducati GP has stifled many talented riders. Has it become a more users friendly bike over the years or is there still only a particular type of rider that can understand it? Your thoughts.

If they can just get it to turn mid corner then they have a winner, naturally a couple of extra hp would be useful but Ducati know how to do that.

What are you on about Davy. Dovi did a brilliant mid corner pass on MM without a problem. Kept it tight and low and straight underneath in mid corner

I think they need to put Cal Crutchlow on one. Hell, he's crashed everything else, I bet he would do well. There would be some new spectacles he could make of himself.





ACME Test Pilot, ACME Race Team Primary Rider. NO wins, many, many losses..........Usually due to an anvil or piano crossing my path. Falls from cliffs slow me down a bit too.
