fair point

totaly agree there bulto. fair point sm just i think hes got the right racer dna and talent to match that of stoner. maybe wishfull thinking. he is very much a confidence rider and on occasion hes shown some real talent, with a rider/machine combo weight limit he will have another tool in his box. sure deserves a ride i motogp more than brad smith.

...there's only one 'tool' around here, and at the moment it's you.
