He says he had an offer from BSB but his heart would not have been in it. He has a family so thats understandable. Also says he was not being picky about money in the AMA he just wanted a good ride. I got the impression he would ride for free if it came to that. Says he is still hopeful he can find something this year. Would have been cool to see him back on a Kawasaki especially if it turns out to be a good ride.


That's what I was thinking. If Kawasaki want to sell ZX-10s, but Tommy on a well-turned out Attack version, and let him get some camera time. Fans would be relieved to see more manufacturers at the front.

Bah, hoping for the best but its not looking good.



Not sure how Tommy would fare on a Kwak. He's a really smooth rider and seems to look uncomfortable pushing when things aren't right. I think he would still be on the sharper end but not a championship ride. But heh when you have no ride at what point to you become less picky.

Ah, the real reason for JU's rage finally surfaces. Big Kahuna advertisements have returned to his website, and now JU is pushig the idea that a promotional entity should assume respsonsibility for the commercial aspects of AMA. Maybe, he thinks M1 are up to the task?

News on Tommy. No ride for Daytona, but he's looking into the possibility of running his own team. Good move, imo. DMG still has many shortcomings, but giving opportunities to the riders is not one of them. NASCAR drivers usually have equity in their own teams.

"The championship battle was wide enough with three or more riders in contention for the title and no shortage of sniping off-track. The comments led one world champion to be temporarily banned from one team's transporter, while other assorted bits of mind games and slights continued on during the season."



Who got banned? What did I miss?

Here is your chance to admit that Robertino has zero business riding in a Moto GP race, if the best he can do is 2.5 seconds off pole in a DSB race.

Robertiino, . I dont personally think you are a piece of crap, but there are hundreds of riders who are more deserving than you to ride a Moto GP bike in a race. Having a rich daddy should not be a qualifier as to who gets to ride in the pinnacle of bike racing.

Ok...I'm guessing you know what's in Benny's future and can't say anything yet?

Fuck Vesrah. Theyve never won shit anyway. Starting off the weekend being 4 seconds back and barely making progress showed me that his team didnt know what they were doing.

Fuck Suzuki as well.

Im hoping to see some dual tuning forks in his future
