    Thats what i thought of the winglets
    When you said the first part i was thinking it was going to be about Alberto Puig.

    Kenny Roberts was known to do that sort of stuff, even throwing blankets over bikes just for giggles.
    That said Honda copied Kevin Schwantz RGV500 Frame geometry when the bike was left parked in front of Gardners motorhome by spending hours taking reels of photos through the tinted mirrored windows

    The temptation would have been irresistible for me. Plus it's a fucking great wingnut smack dab in the middle of the tripleclamp... maybe it comes with it's own wrench for adjustment?

    Right down the bottom

    They should have had two riders at the sharp end in Sepang, but Andrea Iannone appears to have found a way to sabotage his career once again. He missed the shakedown test on Sunday, part of the day on Wednesday and Thursday, and all of the final day on Friday. Officially, he was suffering the aftereffects of antibiotics used to treat a tooth infection, but most observers were skeptical of that explanation, to say the least.

    The unsubstantiated rumor doing the rounds was that Iannone's problems stemmed from another bout of plastic surgery. Compare pictures of him from now, or from late 2018, to those taken while he was at Ducati in 2015, and he looks like a distant relative. For such a change to be natural seems vanishingly improbable.

    And surgery comes with risks. The danger of infection is always present – one of the reasons Marc Márquez stopped riding so early every day was fear of inflammation of his healing shoulder – and the reconfigured bones in the face – modified nose, cheekbones, and jawlines are common – can play havoc with a helmet, the pads pushing bones weakened by surgery into positions they are not supposed to be.

    Whether this is the case for Iannone or not is unknown. But Andrea Iannone has more raw talent than almost any other rider on the MotoGP grid. He has won a MotoGP race (no mean feat), and racked up poles and podiums. But he so often seems to find ways to get in the way of his own talent, of messing up chances he is given. Team bosses have a lot of patience with exceptionally gifted riders. But at some point, their patience can dry up.

    Of course, but most times the paddock gossip is pretty well founded.

    He does have previous form for it.

    The hollywood ones that do admit it all claim deviated septums too.

    including stuff this year.

    I just prefer to not hang until the facts are in. Talk (rumour) is cheap.

    I wasn't planning on hanging him either way.
    The paddock would be pretty boring if they all were Eddie Lawsons and Freddie Spencer's

    Surely that's Dovi in pic 1. Otherwise an amazing transformation

    ETA my pic of him in his early time at Ducati is the last time he looked at a racing weight IMHO.

    No you've cracked it. Three different dudes entirely. Which probably explains his racing trajectory.

    Aero wasn't such a big consideration obviously.

    I found a funny reddit thread about AI's problems. Some choice comments... "a million dollar talent with a 5 cent head"

    and my favourite... "Holy shit, the amount of jealous assholes here's astonishing.

    True. I wish I had lips like that"
