Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Good call. He's done several 125cc seasons, but recently moved up. That clip was from the 250cc MotoGP race in Mugello last weekend.

Noticed that he looked down a couple of times after he got back on the bike. Must have been checking his shorts.
