Was just gonna come and start this thread but you beat me to it. Looking for another strong season from my dude MM93. Glad he won in 2016 and finished strong. Lots of changes for 2017 so should be exciting. Wondering if we have more than the 9 winners we had in 2016.

EDIT: Freakin EPIC recap of 2016:

Although the testing times are pretty meaningless I can't wait to see JLo on the Ducati and Iaonne on the Suzuki

I have a feeling Lowes is going to crash

Looks like Iannone got right in the groove with that suzuki. Only 0.2 seconds off the leader so far. Although everyone is going well over a second slower than qualifying times...so running race pace.

I think Lorenzo will be fast on the Ducati as well next year. I'll be fighting with myself in every race as far as who to cheer for. Hate Lorenzo...love Ducati...it'll be tough

I'm curious to see how the guys that moved up from Moto 2 will do. I don't expect to see great results in this test, but we'll see if they get up to pace by the Qatar race.

I couldn't be happier with Lorenzo's performance on the GP16 and I'm digging the logo redesign . Maverick was also impressive.

I'm wondering what's up with the winglets? Didn't they say no more winglets in 2017?? Why are they all testing with them still?

Also, this is just probably the cheapskate in me...but why do all these teams waste so much money on new bodywork, suits, and other livery changes just for a test? I can understand when testing the new 2017 bikes, because maybe they don't have the next year's livery done yet, so you might as well just paint it black or something simply, but why spend all that money on the suits and bodywork for the 2016 bikes??

Then again, wedding dressing are expensive and typically worn once only too so whatever...lol
