yeah, at 6'6" he's a monster compared to most GP riders.
I'd love to ride on of those. Maybe if I tell Ducati that I
was a billionare and was thinking of starting a race team they'd

6'6" is a big boy for moto gp for sure. i think Xaus is like 6'2" though, he makes the Duc look pretty small. the bike the Air Man was riding was the Ducati MotoGP bike that Randy Mamola gives rides to people on. he gave a ride to Luca Cadalora earlier this year and Cadalora actually dragged his knee from the passenger spot. first ever two-up knee drag as far as i know.
i've got a membership password for motogp.com if you guys wanna watch the video of mike. there's a clip of him getting a ride in the new M5 from Vale...it's pretty funny. anyway, username "spitzr" and the password is "password". my roomate got it from some motorcycle forum that he belongs to. there's a ton of cool vids on that site, have fun with it.

I was surprised that MJ didn't dwarf the bike...I mean he looks large on it but doesn't look freakish.

Ok...you wanna hear me say it don't you....he doesn't look as strange on that bike as I look on my race bike.

I hate you guys.

i wont deny that johnnyB looks funny on his bike, but i'm always disappointed at how freakish i look on pete's bike. i feel like it's a big bike but it looks kinda small underneath me. i'm used to myself looking f--kin weird on my 125...i feel ya johnny. us tall statuesque guys have it rough sometime eh?

Zack,
It's worth it I guess, we get all the hot girls.

Better to look good 99% of your life and look just a little strange on a race bike.....than to look strange 99% of the time and look good 1% of the time on a 250 Ducati....or err...whatever a person might ride :)
