Personally would prefer to see Honda give Rea the bike be needs to win the Superbike crown instead of having to crash his brains out on a slug, but if he must be lost to GP, even without a Spanish passport, then may he ride the wheels off the thing and frighten a few people. He has the speed, he only needs the package, and maybe he can bring a little excitement and interest back to a class in danger of extinction through sheer boredom

Now that Spies is reportedly going to Pramac Ducati, JR's outings for HRC have become a genuine audition for the Gresini ride next year. Redding and Baustista are the only other candidates in the frame, so if Rea can make a good impression both here and at the next two race weekends, he could put himself in a very strong position to secure that ride for 2013.

No wonder he's 2 to 3 seconds off the pace.
Look at the photo.
The clods have sent him out on a road bike :p

(Well, its not as if anyone would be so stupid as to stick toy lights on a Moto GP machine is it)?:rolleyes:

That bikes gonna rip the stitching out of them super bike leathers.Think he needs to be dragged round by Danni for a few laps just for few good pointers.

2.6 off of Dani who's running round at record pace makes me think that come race day he'll be on it.
