314.8km/h = 195mph = Dang!!! Looking into the magic television tube I forsee many a broken limb this season. Hopefully my vision is incorrect

obviously Honda has good reason to feel confident about the coming season. unless they run into unforeseen engineering issues I think they stand a great chance.



were Suzuki and Aprilia present for the test?

Suz and Aprilia times.

Yeah, Suzuki was there. ROberts was in 10th the firs day, but I don't think he tested after that, because his time stayed the same and Gibernau went to like 11 and Ryo to 10th or something which put ROberts in 15th since he may have not ridden anymore. Regis was in 14th the first day but he wasn't even in the top 15 the second. I think he was like 17th or something, 2.5 seconds a lap back from Rossi.

I don't think Roberts rode the 2nd day, was in tenth day one, ahead of Ryo and Gibernau. Regis was like in 17th the second day.

Re: Suz and Aprilia times.

Hey, it's great to see John Hopkins doing so well. Sure, he's a couple seconds back from Rossi, but he's within 1 second or so of the other Yamahas. That's pretty good for a guy who's never raced at anything like this level before.
