When did Casey have a factory Honda Lol. Casey walked away from Honda because they wouldn't give him a factory ride or even equal tyres, which is an absolute must to win in GP.

Of course he lauded Casey's skills. That why Kevin takes Casey's absence so seriously. Face it, MotoGP is a far better show when Casey is out there racing, and he's not!

"Casey walked away from Honda because they wouldn't give him a factory ride or even equal tyres"

Hadn't thought of things this way, just assumed he was seduced by the lure of a Ducati Ride - Kinda makes sense now - Honda don't really have a good track record of rider-support ( shows in their results - 2006 excepted - but where is NH now anyway ?? - in fact, off-subject, I Know , but where is NH headed ??)

I'm just surprised Kevin thought Casey had a supported Honda! Casey had some excellent performances on the bike but it had no factory support whatsoever.

Did you know of the 13 riders to contest a full season on the Rc211v only Kato, edwards and stoner were unable to win a race. Both edwards and kato had more podiums and finished higher in the championship than stoner :)
(Bayliss did not contest a full season)

interesting facts Beefcake...

If they are facts (can't be ****d to check)...

Of course! People that spring to mind... Biaggi, Gibernau, Tomada, Melandri, Elias, Barros... All this lot beat Rossi since 2004!

Wow, that's interesting!

That is a distortion of the facts. Casey had only a single, rookie season, the others all had several seasons on better supported equipment. It was also LCR's first season in GP.
