Could this be a response to Puig's comments about Schwantz? it's a brilliant way for Kagayama to launch his new team and it will be interesting to see how they perform, good luck to them.

Whatever happened to the old addage of respecting ones elders? Its truly appaling how many negative comments some of the legends get on here. Nothing wrong with speaking ones mind mind you but give respect where its due. Old or not, Schwantz and Haga have put in their time in both domestic series as well as international and both , even now are more accomplished and far superior riders than any of the lot commenting negatively about them on here. Last i checked nobody commenting on here is a GP Champion nor have they ever competed in the series.

One would think that the electronics side of the bikes will be something quite new to Kevin. But it's just made this race a must-follow all of a sudden. A great marketing coup. Even a demo lap would be good to see with Kevin on board, but a couple of hours?!?! If he won, I'd almost cry.
Is this for real?

Kevins words: I heard somebody say the other day that Colin's Ewards is going to quit at the end of the season, or not. Honestly I think that he should've quit two seasons ago.

Here's the pot calling the kettle black.

You should have stayed retired, after all didn't you quit racing because of injuries or because you were getting smoked?

Kevin better win or he's going to be considered a failure and going nowhere.

In reality he needs the money.

This is great news......wtf does it matter how well he does as long as he finishes right way up and enjoys himself. I'd imagine Suzuki will be keen to help these guys as well.
It's funny all these negative comments....if Ago had come back and done the TT aged 48 he would have been a hero!

They've got to have THE biggest collection of broken bones between them, maybe a collection of their old x-rays should be used as a collage paint job for the fairing......though they'd probably be struggling for space once Kagayama had offered his up.
