Here we go. Shades of Hayden's dirt track injury last year and Rossi's motocross injury two year prior. Oh, and lets not forget Dovi's injury beginning last year.

Hope he can be fit enough to ride in two weeks time....though that's not nearly long enough for a fracture. BTW......he's wearing Arlen Ness leathers in the picture, with sponsorship from West Coast Choppers? Really? A Honda rider, sponsored by two of America's biggest custom HD chopper builders?

What do you want these guys to do in the off season,motox is a physical sport,yes it's possible to pick up an injury but that can be said about doing jobs around the house, Rossi once injured himself hanging curtains

Ivor Boob I don't think his last two employers would agree with you, what qualifies you to say he's a "good bloke"? He's got no ball's like you and all the other well wishers.

Sitting here typing one handed and in possession of a sick note due to the exact same injury as Hiro (and done in the same week), his ambition to ride in early February is unimaginable to me, that guy has balls, couldn't even imagine hanging onto a road going Gixxer 750 on part throttle at the moment, let alone thrashing a GP bike!! MASSIVE RESPECT!!!

@Superscouser

what make Aoyama such talented is the fact tha has proven himself, especially seeing how he was the 250cc World Champ, something which is rare feat for Japanese rider competing on the world stage.

Sure that might be alot, but I'm quite sure if he had the level of support/invesment similiar to that D. Kato he could've been something in the Motogp class. In fact I see him as being the heir to Kato.
