He Won't Need Bonded On Wings

As I said elsewhere Ducati need to rediscover the essence of their bikes, they've built a fantastic but definitely not perfect bike in the Desmosedici since day 1. The previous pilot was happy to ride round it's issues until they rode around him but the new one doesn't work that way and the bike will be much better for it. Expect to see a more Ducati-esque swooping and flowing through corners very shortly.

@ Wild Stuart

Cheers Stuart! Thats a sweet link...

Have to say i think Haydens leathers blow Valentino's away. They look much sharper, slicker, & much more meant. I know why Rossi has the Yellow in there, but that is what what is making his leathers look a tad out of place...

Lets hope Nicky can blow him away on the track aswell :D

... And que the abuse...

Hello sailor!

Those leathers are almost as gay as Uccio. Lorenzo has won the style war already.....

When did rossi become simoncelli's team mate?

All that anticipation and he pull's out some satellite shit. I thought ducati was going to keep the all red so where's this white bike?

@ chrislegend09

You may be on to something there mate...

Something i noticed was the new style Ducati team patch on the team clothing (bit hard to miss seeing as it takes up most of the chest!!!)

This badge tends to mirror the layout of the side fairing graphic. Or it has done in previous years with the barcoding layout on the patch i.e Marlboro. However this year they seem to have done away with the barcode and shows a sweeping fade from red -silver-white gradient instead... i wouldn't be surprised if the same gradient / fade was applied to the bottm of the fairings & bellypate of the new Ducati...

Hmmm not sure

 

Well not sure on this , all the early pre bike testing he was riding a nice black number with a flo-flash Rossi green (or is it yellow) ! it looked soooo cool,  but now its just the same old same old Ducati teamoooooos ,  Helmet looks good , and yes he dose look suspect in them leathers ,

Italian Flag...

I think the Italian colours will feature on this years bike to emphasise the 'Italian-nes' of the Team/Factory/Rider combination.... Just a thought!!
