everyone with a brain knows the kwak ain't goo as an overall package
fast engines don't go round corners by themselves and need a chassis that can cope and make the most of that power putting it to the ground as the rider needs or wants it. Hence 2011 ZX-10R being built from scratch

WSBK 09 was overshadowed by Spies and what he achieved in a new series, new bike, pole positions and motoGP shows what a start he is

Sykes finished No 6 in WSBK 09 so he's good

When was the last time you saw a kwak take on a factory Honda and win ?

Goes to show how good he is and what the team have put together

Saying Sykes is crap is not looking at the stats

I'll probably be quite alone in thinking that Sykes didn't do too badly on that Yamaha last year.

I went to watch this yesterday with the current Mrs Cletus and Cletus IV & V. We had a lovely day (thanks for asking) despite the determined efforts of many competitors to impact test parts of Brands Hatch. Sykes still has that very 'head first' style of riding. He couldn't hold tight, neat, consistent lines like Kiyo could, but seemed to have more than a few extra horses to play with. He played to the strengths of his bike well, so did Kiyo, that's about all you can ask.

The new Kawasaki is evidently very small, with a stacked gear box helping engine size and placement Con't
