|The Repsol Honda Team kicked off the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix in fine
form today, with Dani Pedrosa topping the time sheets on the first day of free
practice with Casey Stoner in fifth position at the World famous Indianapolis
With heavy rainfall from the night before, track conditions were poor in the morning session. However, by the afternoon the grip level had improved considerably and both Repsol Honda riders made progress with their bike set up. Dani took the biggest advantage of the better conditions, lapping 2.4 seconds quicker than the morning session with a 1'39.783 - faster than the circuit record of 1'39.807 set by Casey here in 2011.
Casey, the fastest in FP1, also improved his lap times by 1.3 seconds in the afternoon, but late in the session he experienced an issue in the rear of the bike which is still being investigated and prevented him from setting a faster time than 1'40.623, placing him in 5th at the end of day one.
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.
