He hasn't done as well as I might have hoped, though he hasn't really embarrassed himself either IMO.

He could do with a podium or two to justify keeping a top ride next year.
Tommy could use a hand too, if Haga can take any points off of Brookes or Shakey it would help.

Oulton was a one-off in 2004.

Nori could have been in with a shout this year if he hadn't binned it so often when running at the front. The pace is still there or thereabouts. Can't see him going anywhere other than BSB in 2013 so a few more podiums or even a win will do him the world of good.

Oulton was not on the WSB schedule, Nori did a wildcard there to help get data on the Ducati but it was BSB not WSB.

Still one of the best images ever tho :)

Tommy is going to need some help and i hope Nori is there to assist.

Take points off Brooks and Shakey, are you kidding?
He might take a point away from Walker. If he gets in the top ten he will have done well. Hes not fast enough. Retire the time has come.

If your too old retire, if you have a bad race your rubbish, if you don't come across right on tv it means your undeserving of a ride, if you have bad luck a d say what you think about it your a to@@er???
How bike racing has changed. Used to be about how good you are at racing that mattered!!!!

I think everyone was disappointed with what happened to Kiyo, especially given that he is still in his prime. I think everyone knows he had some personal issues too.
The above is not even close to Nori's career
Kagayama was almost constantly injured, he could trip over a paving stone and break his neck he was that unlucky. Admittedly, i believe he went on for one season too long in BSB.
Neither of the two had the same amount of success in WSB as Nori has had. And no offence to either of the other two but i think Nori was more talented and despite no title, more successful on the world stage.
Oh, i know how they are all similar.....they are Japanese and they raced bikes but thats where the similarity ends
