If the GSXR600 is such a competitive package how come hardly anyone including the TAS team is running one this season aside from on the Island.....Wasn't Michael Dunlop scheduled to ride one and then changed his mind?

Good to hear that Conor Cummins will be out tomorrow. I can't help but think it'll just be a run out for him though. He and Hutchy are both a bit out of sorts at the moment.

I also think it's a bit rich for Hector Neill to be berating Guy Martin's performances in the second Supersport race when the bike couldn't even finish the first one and the team couldn't change the rear wheel & tyre in the first super bike race.

The GSXR600 is definitely not yet up to scratch, for road racing purposes, in the supersport class. The super bike should be strong enough though.

I can see Guy moving for next year, hopefully back to a Honda.

The boss trying in vain to deflect the image of Suzuki being weak on the roads? Easy to do when you've only got one guy running (no pun intended). Suzuki are weak internationally at the moment, even with Factory Yoshi motors. If Guy criticised the team it'd be very different. I'd say Guy's been remarkably held back RE: team performance on TV.

My god you hold a grudge dont u daniel get over it. I agee with the above that the 600 is not a competitive bike on the roads something like 10mph slower than the wilson craig bike in a straight line not good. But the big bike as seen by Josh brookes on the circuits and alistair seeley at the nw200 is a very good package only difference for them is they are riding the pirellis every week Guy doesnt even ride the bike I think next year if he is still there more bike time is needed to learn the pirellis better. As for connor will be great to see him out hopefully next year he is fit and able to challenege for the win he has done the leg work in the superstock championship this year is just unfortunate with the injury.

the 600 aint that bad,its still holding the bsb 600 title, was flyin at the nw200,as was the superbike,the wilson craig bikes are faster than all the 600s,but they did not win either.
martin just aint up to it this year,he rode the same tyres last year too,an injured cummins is tas only hope for a podium,maybe one should ask why martin kept refusing to turn up at the rr tests while the restof the riders got on with the job of sorting out, and getting used to their bikes

bruce anstey rides the honda 3 times a year doesnt slow him down the 600 is slow compared to wilsons bikes but then not much can keep up with those hondas. The big bike is proven fast. You would wonder are the accidents they both suffered still playing on their minds

Dave I think the fact Josh brookes is leading the bsb championship and seeley winning at the nw200 on it proves the bike isnt sh1t. Just something not clicking with Guy and the bike unfortunately for him and the team.
