Really liking the new livery.

There is a grey blur, and a green blur. I try to stay on the grey one. -Joey Dunlop

Maybe a little buzz in the grips?

Looks like it got rearended at a traffic light, but I bet it's fast.

Maybe they should put it in the seat. He might like it.

Is the thumb brake as bad as an oil thread?

Ha, not sure about a debate. Just interesting that the Ducati riders feel it's necessary to get that bike turned.

The whole "is the rear brake usable". This article makes it sound like it's a must. Many serious track riders and hobby racers tell you it's worthless. It's gotten to the point I don't say whether or not I use mine just to avoid the fuckin argument!

The article makes it sound like it's a must specifically for the Ducati. They mention that Marquez, Rossi, others have played with a thumb brake but don't currently use.
