    Rossi certainly had to slip the clutch a few times to get it up at one point. He was probably just getting a feel for the bike.

  11. Hmm, I just read that the new R1 has the YCC-T (Yamaha Computer Controlled Throttle, first seen on the '06 R6) programmed so that the initial response from the throttle is toned down to improve controllability, particularly mid corner.

    This may explain why he had difficulties (at first) with wheelies.
