|The legendary Assen circuit was the setting of another brilliant performance
by the Repsol Honda Team. The 90,248 spectators occupying the grandstands at the
'Cathedral' enjoyed a two-man battle between Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa, who
led from start to finish, with no rivals to challenge them.|
Casey celebrated his sixth consecutive podium in Assen with another victory, his third of the season, and Dani crossed the line behind him to complete the team's fifth double podium of the 2012 MotoGP World Championship. This result, combined with Jorge Lorenzo's unfortunate crash, places Casey in the joint championship lead with 140 points and Dani, 19 points behind them consolidating third position.
Pedrosa took the race lead from the start, with Casey close behind. They were matching times, lap by lap, separated by mere milliseconds and increased the gap to the rest of the pack by more than eight seconds. Dani set the circuit record on lap fifteen (1'34.548) but couldn't pull away from Casey, who overtook him with nine laps to go and led until the end.
The Repsol Honda Team couldn't ask for a better start to the most demanding period of the season, with three races back to back. Next up is Germany's Sachsenring followed by Italy's Mugello Circuit.
Well I doubt I will ever be brave enough to buy a conversion like this but saw these and the think they look amazing. I find that a great deal of headlight conversion often look tacky and dread it when I hear of angel or demon eyes. These however seem tasteful and do seem to suit the lines of the bike.
