You cock..

What you one-eyed fanboys seem to forget, is that Ducati were on the slide long before Rossi got there AND the competition raised the bar while they went backwards.

All the riders, including your beloved Stoner who actually begged for the bike that started the downward spiral, have complained about the same issues.

The ALU frame has improved the bike, otherwise they'd have dug the Monocoque out and be using that.

The problem is that fkin old desmo lump. They will not redesign the motor and are compromised. They built a frame to go around the engine.

All the problems identified by Rossi and Burgess are still being worked on and have been confirmed by the new riders. Dovi & Hayden have brought nothing new to the table.

Don't forget, Rossi on his debut was as fast as Stoner on that bike after 4 years.

Talent?..What the fk did Stoner win before he jumped on the best bike in 2007, then took it backwards..then did the same at Honda?

This one ...

"Rossi on his debut was as fast as Stoner on that bike after 4 years."

Hahahaha.  That's just too much.  I'm pretty sure that most of the yellow fangirls would be embarrassed by that one.

Anyway ... even if that was remotely plausible (hahahaahaha) ... what you're saying was that he inherited a fast bike which he developed into the ground? It seems we have finally found common ground.

'It's Rossi's fault for wasting development dollars'?????.................. It is Rossi's job to ride the bike and tell the development team of any issues that restrict the bike's performance. It is then up to the team to come up with the solutions. The only trouble was that Ducati didn't come up with anything, so seeing that both the sweet handling Honda and Yamaha both have an ally frame, Rossi and Burgess (by this time running out of patience) thought it logical for Ducati to try this. The only people who have developed the bike into the ground are Ducati themselves.

What are you talking about Wosi?

Stoner did fuck all before 2007? He was on the LCR, the bike furthest away from the factory bikes, more so than any other bike on the grid! And talking of the "Desmo Lump", every manufacturer build the chassis around the engine, the engine from the Duke is not dissimilar to the one fitted in the bike leading the World Championship. Get over the bad couple of years Vale had at Ducati and stop being so f*cking grumpy and bitter. The stuff you once wrote on here was proper funny and had me, and no doubt many others in stitches.
