When it was announced that he was going to HRC, I said Ducati would regret it. I think I may have underestimated even my own sentiment. Limited time on the bike, riding with an injury, doesn't feel comfortable (ergos), and his times are far more than 'respectable'. The 'he'll find it difficult to adapt to the Honda' folks are already looking a little daft. Ducati Corse mgt ..... smh.I think JL is going to be hard to beat this year.
