"It was an accident" from Nicky himself. Ah yes, time for another exciting season of Max (and Matt) bashing! I'm sure they lose a lot of sleep worrying that they will never be voted Miss Personality. Just think, if they were popular maybe they could get a job riding a motorcycle fast.
On a related note, word is that Max Biaggi has recently confirmed his attendance as one of MO's 2005 middleweight sportbike street testers, replacing last year's designated wild thang, Dale Alexander, who oddly enough is unavailable due to a previous commitment as a stunt double for the pit row scenes of the forthcoming film, "Ooops, sh*t, sorry. Didn't see ya' coming: The Max Biaggi story".
LOL Would have loved to do the middleweight deal (track day and all) but Stardom calls! There was some talk that I might be a little large to be a believable MOTOGP rider but in the end my credentials (as a crash dummy and Highly experienced crasher) carried the day! Truth is stranger than fiction!
Does our experience qualify us as Senior Squids? Do we get extra credit for having survived this long?
PS As I heard it, being in front and all, you were making that Bandit pretty WIDE back there. I know I was surprised to be pulling up to a parked Sean and Mike (of course) after going at a reasonable pace (for me) on the lastest and greatest and seeing you right behind me on that thing ;-).
