'I had quite a big slide through there [turn six] and it was hard to judge the grip. I didn't do a good job at all, so I'm not very happy' - Nicky Hayden

Motojunky - Are you kidding me? Silly?

If you think Dovi leading Hayden by only 10pts is silly - what do you think about Marc leading JLo and Dani by 39 and 59 points?

And where did 7 years come from? Hayden hasn't been at Ducati for 7 years, and he's been in GP for 10.

You're the only one who looks "silly" - when you don't have a clue what you're talking about.

Hayden's riding a turd painted red.

Don't get me wrong, I like Dovi and respect his riding. But 10 points adrift, while NH is on a bike that is even worse than AD's, and miss judges sloppy wet corner, does not make NH look silly.

Hey vilas46
Hayden 2003 rookie of the year, 5th overall
Hayden 3rd in 2005 with 1 win, 6 podiums and 3 poles
Hayden WC in 2006 with 2 wins , 10 podiums and 1 pole
Hayden still holds the lap record at PI even during the Stoner years, etc..............
You'll never convince me that Dovi is better in any way

@ Conrise.
O.K. brain fade on my part about the 7 instead of 5. But beening shown around the tracks by Dovi is embarassing considering the time he's been at Ducati. Is that a better word than "silly".
If he could get a competitive ride I would like him to stay, but that's not going to happen, so off to WSBK's. Look at the GP riders that have gone there after racing in GP's. Heaps even became World Champs.
Racing at the pointy end is what would drive me. Not being and also ran in Moto GP. But hey, everyones opinion is different.
Well said Vilas46.

Motofunky - You still don't know what you're talking about. Hayden did not have any competitive options in WSBK either. Prata and Ducati were really the only options he had when making the choice. Those are much worse than any middle of the pack ride in GP. Even though they're factory rides - they're middle of the pack at best. Prata won't win until Honda overhauls the 1000rr. And look where the Panigale is at. Your replies are still ... well... you can decide: silly or embarrassing. Either one fits. Dovi has qualified better than Hayden often this year. Dovi often goes backwards, and Hayden usually finishes ahead of where he started.

Vilas - Consider a few things.

Dovi beat Cal last year by 67 points
Dovi beat Pedro by 9 points (his last year at Honda)

A 10 point gap is not all that much - especially considering the points as you've layed them out. One DNF from Dovi would completely erase any lead...

Yep conrice I have no clue. But I know one thing. Trying to have a discussion with a Hayden fangirl is a no brainer.
Dovi is a rookie on the Duckati. And who said Hayden has to stay with Ducati if he goes to WSBK. Does no other team want him? Tell you anything. lol.

Aww, that's cute. I'm a fangirl and you're the one using "lol"

WUP - Hayden is over 1 second quicker than Dovi.

Yup, Dovi is really "showing Hayden around the track"

And as far as your last comment about teams and wanting him... God, you really don't know what you're talking about do you? It's more than just a team wanting him. Pay, competitiveness, desire, future plans, etc all come into play.

If Hayden would give up GP for WSBK, he'd definitely only do it for a top contender, factory team where he's NO.1. That leaves out Kawasaki (Sykes). Aprilia was only talking to him about a contract in GP, BMW pulled out, and then you had Ducati and Honda, which I already explained in a previous post. Those aren't great options compared to GP. Do you understand now?

If you think that literally no other teams want him - you're crazy.
