The bike is now gone to a good home. I hope the buyer gets it running again and has years of enjoyment.

Well, they will lineup on March 18, and we will see what shakes out.  So far it sounds like things will be competitive between the teams.  Ducati has made significant progress, as well as KTM and Apprillia.  Yamaha has done some 'homework' and Honda will be there too.  So it looks like no significant domination by one machine, yet.

Jorge said the Ducati is much more to his liking, improved in every way.

Well, that looks good for Yamaha.  But wait!  There will be more to come.  Jorge Lorenzo is still trying to master the new Ducati, and maybe the factory has found a way to get them to turn better and hold corner speed.  I guess everyone has found how to use the Magnetti Marelli spec electronics.  That still seems a blurry area, but progress has been made and those guys are going very fast. 

I think the tires are the weak link in the equation.  Lots of horsepower, and that wears on the tires.  Maybe if they were limited to a bit less fuel . . . . oh yeah, they already tried that.

The old post was getting too long. First day of testing at Sepang and everyone just loves their new bike, surprise!

Sounds a lot like my situation, except I'm receiving Social Security now so not working for a living anymore.  Wife has lung cancer.

What sort of luthery are you into?  I mostly did repair work but made about 200 instruments over the years.

Sometimes I get tempted to start looking, especially with the FZ carb conversion now being a known option (way to go, Walt and Ron). 

But right now, my wife's cancer treatment, luthiery, woodworking and house projects are keeping my head out of that rabbit hole.
