|The Repsol Honda Team had a good start on the first day of free practice
sessions at the Grand Prix of Italy, with Dani Pedrosa finishing the day in
second position, just 0.031 off Lorenzo, and Casey Stoner in sixth, 0.4 off the
best lap time.|
Dani and Casey made the most of the perfect weather conditions to test the performance of the Bridgestone tyres in the fast and flowing Mugello circuit to start setting up their RC213V machines. Both riders worked with the standard hard rear tyre, the most likely choice for the race distance of 23 laps.
Dani, who won at Sachsenring last week and here in Mugello in 2010, made a big step forward in the afternoon session and with a best time of 1'48.107, lapping three tenths under the circuit record (set by Lorenzo last year with 1'48.402), while Casey, a winner here in 2009, finished close behind with a best lap time of 1'48.527.
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.
