That's what I like about Shakey, he never gives less than his all. He's fast but the thing that gives him the edge is that his hunger never seems to change. I still wish that a far thinking competitive team would give him a ride in WSBK, I think he would still surprise a few people. When he was there last time he didn't have the equipment to succeed.

i know well about that Althea Ducati, maybe good part could be by Checa, ..., but to be honest, maybe that bike coulnt be the best for shakey,
i would like to see what he are able to do against all WSBK riders in a home race for him with equal machinery, four cilinder...

Yeah that Ducati 1098, never had much luck on that did Shakey... well, except for 2008 when he just blitzed everyone else in BSB.

Its just that in BSB he's a big fish in a small pond (and usually with a big backer too), stepping up a level, like many BSB riders, he's just not the best in the world or with the best backer.

Just because you are a British rider, doesn't make you world champion!

Anyway, I am fairly sure he'll be top of the pile in BSB this season and I look forward to it.
