Arggh, i keep thinking, John Terry, Ashley Cole, and Frank Lampard when I see this bike!! Just imagine for PR Samsung get all the Chelsea players to sit on this bike.. I have a feeling that Fernando Torres would probably fall off, even when its stationary and on paddock stand:)

So JK bought Samsung to the BSB party which 100% reinforces my point that to be good in this game at the highest level you also have to be a savy business person. Is this "buying a ride"? No doubt.
However Factfan, much like the chicken and the egg, we will never know for certain wheather Honda were intersted in JK before they were aware that Samsung came with him (how could they not have known?)... or does he come with Samsung? Samsung have stated that BSB is part of their marketing so they were looking for a top team once Cresent went to WSBK.

Fact 1...Mick Kirkham does not work for Samsung but he owns his own company which cleans drains,slurry pits,blast furniss and any other S@@t jobs that nobody else will do and JK and Mick are very hands on in the business which has financed Jons racing upto very recently..
Fact 2.... JK was signed to Honda racing months before SAMSUNG comfirmed sponsorship for the team.
Fact 3....JK has won BSB races... ffs why do some people grudge him a good ride with a top team in BSB is beyond me.
Samsung are probably on board because JK is riding for Honda but as i said ,JK's ride was not dependent on him bringing a sponsor..FACT.
