...getting back to the 1000s should help but Nicky's doing better all the time and he's had better results than anyone else on the Duc. Besides Casey, of course. Pretty much anyone they ask in the paddock says the Duc is a different(difficult) bike to get used to. They've changed some things to make him more comfortable and he had numerous shots at good results if it weren't for people with their heads up their asses thinking they can win the race in the first corner.
I think people forget sometimes that there's a slight difference between what Nicky and those guys are doing and people on here going out and "hittin some twisties".
Nicky is a laid back guy and he was as mad as could be when de angelis took him out in turn 1. I know every year and every race is gamble, but i just hope that Hayden can wrestle that red bike and get a few wins/podiums this season.
