Maybe Honda have had a rethink and realise some club racer road merchant isnt really a........LEGEND.
Out qualify the well conected hanger on the short circuit.......consider that done.

Now they do have 3 legends

i have to bite....Amor has out performed Donald for a couple of years now.Donald is rightly a reserve.Personaly i would have prefered Ryan Farquar "Mr Roads himself".It would have been interesting to see how he would cope in endurance.

If Ryan can hop on bike after bike at Olivers Mount in one day then I think he can handle some endurance racing. Why Honda would use a rider that's ridden Kawasakis exclusively (bar some rides on classic Suzukis) in the past few seasons is another matter...

Totaly agree re Kwak/Honda. My point was regarding Keiths standing as opposed Camerons. IMO Ryan is better than both.I realy dont believe the Irish Road Racers get the credit there talent deserves. BTW i have booked my weekend for Scarborough already

@ Richard Mushet, regarding the Kawasaki comment"Why Honda would use a rider that's ridden Kawasakis exclusively (bar some rides on classic Suzukis) in the past few seasons is another matter..."

Er which rider did you mean? Cam has ridden the Robinson Honda at the TT. Flying Ryan Farquar rides mostly Kawasakis. Doesn't he?

I must have lost something in the translation.
Who knows why Honda chose those riders?

Anyway good luck to Cam and all the real road racers.

I was only referring to Farquhar in my post, following up from the previous comment about how Ryan would do in Endurance racing.

As for Cam, he's had an indifferent season after coming back from his TT crash - would love to see him get back to form this season. Not sure what I think of Amor - especially after his comment about Sheene after breaking the Ulster lap record last year...

Same ridiculas RRR comments.
Cam has raced BSB superstock thats legues and legues above what the "irish road boys" have done and Irish superbike for that matter and back to the point for Amore, he has never raced anywhere near that level and couldnt and before the attacks watch what happens when he tries to qualify at World endurance and at a guess he's prob near 5-7 seconds alap of what Plater can do.
At least Cam as said has race sstock I personally think Amore would really struggle to get in the top 25 IMO
I dont get why the road fans cant see its a whole different ball game.

gg what utter bull/sh1t you talk,bsb superstock leagues above the irish road racers ,you must be fkn joking,some irish r.racers would win that title easy if they set up for it,you want to check the lap times at kirkistown,usually held by the tas squad with laverty or seeley (bsb runners)with the top road racers ?its very close,and the road racers are not on bsb spec bikes,remember a couple of yrs ago a young road racer duffing up laverty on a s/circut and making guys like brogan look slow,some of these r/racers were top circut riders in ireland before they choose the roads option,as for the honda legends team,? why was hutchy not nailed on for it before armor ffs,what did he say about bazza?
