I met Bayliss at Laguna Seca. He's the coolest, most down-to-earth guy you'll ever meet. BTW, he wasn't talking out his ass either. 5th place at Suzuka, a track he has no experience on, riding a bike that's brand-freakin' new, is just phenomenal. Honda and Rossi have to be worried about Ducati. They're obviously lower on the development curve (and on the steeper part of it as well) and Capirossi and Bayliss still finish 3rd and 5th, respectively. To add insult to injury, Loris led the first few laps of the race and showed that the Duc definitely has the same or more power than Rossi's Repsol Honda. Once the chassis gets more in tune we will start seeing Ducati winning races. I'm looking forward to watching this David vs. Goliath story pan out.
