Bit concerning this! Given that Birdy just a couple of weeks ago stated that Keith Farmer who has been unwell is retained? so it begs the question what is happening with Shakey? or is Birdy going to run a three bike team?
I am concerned for BSB as rumours abound re Alex Lowes possibly going to Moto GP with PBM if he goes and at the moment Shakey hasnt got a deal goes as well the championship next year will be pretty average.

Lets hope things get sorted quickly.

Really struggling to understand your points here guys.
PBM has announced they will stay in BSB next season with Kawasaki bikes and the two riders are Shakey and Easton. End of.
The Farmer issue was when Haga came in to ride shotgun for Shakey in the showdown rounds & PBM said that they would provide a third bike for Farmer for the remainder of 2013 if he wanted it (& was fit).
I don't think there has ever been any commitment made for Farmer to be retained for 2014.
MotoGP is another issue. PBM will be campaigning two bikes there and therefore he needs two riders. At present the most likely scenario is for M. Laverty to be retained and Alex Lowes to join.

Whether Alex Lowes goes to MotoGP or not, 2014 will be anything but average in BSB! Look at all the talent that has risen to the top this year, most notably TB46 and PJ99, besides Brookes and Ellison will both be hungry to improve on this year, and who knows what the likes of Easton, Farmer and Westy might pull out of the bag. Halsall Kawasaki have fast bikes and the GB Moto lads will be up there if they can find a few more horsepower.

Oh, and there's also the small matter of John Hopkins amd Tommy Hill...

I'm excited already! :)

As far as I'm aware all entrants in the Senior or Superbike classes must be on the FIM list of homologated motorcycles which would mean MotoGP or CRT bikes would not be allowed.
