    Oh by the way Rossi is the only one on the track who rode a 500cc Bike, He has ridden and won on a greater variety of Bikes than anyone ever in the sport!

    I have seen some of those articles and every time i read them...i raise more questions. With the electronics now adays...well, two strokes would be more tame than before, kind of taking the fun and risks out of them...but then again, that would be for a more detail discussion. Good Article Repsoldave.

    This is true. But I have no doubts that any of today's top riders would be able to adapt the 500cc two stroke. They're professional racers, it's their job and the top guys didn't get to where they are because they suck.

    Although I think it would be fun to watch. The 500cc two stoke likes to be ridden on the edge. But the margin for error is pretty much non exsistant. I would say:

    Rossi will remember and get right back into it:

    Marquez will get it and learn to be a lot smoother pretty quickly. (a few helicopter rides to the ER will calm him right down...)

    Lorenzo will cry about it all day every day, but he's no slouch rider. His super smooth style will serve him well. But he doesn't like ridding on the edge of control and he can't get out of the way of his own ego. (That might get him killed before he learns the bike...)

    Dani who knows. If he can push himself, and ride on the edge, His small frame, years of experience and smooth style Could make him the dark horse of the bunch. (If he can stay on the bike. But if the evil 500 spits him off just once, he'll break into lots of pieces.)

    Dovi would probably pick it up but it would take him a while.

    Ianonne might be he first casualty. (Knock on wood. I'm certainly not wishing any ill will on the guy.)

    Vinarles is another who will get spanked by the two stroke. But he'll learn. (after a few helicopter rides with Marc...)

    Redding and Smith would crash all over the place and have the time of their lives!!! Laughing all the way to the bar.... But once the get it they'll be good on it.

    Pol Esparago might sh!t himself and run back to Moto2

    But that's just my opinions......
