Steady yet, encouraging start to 2009 for Kawasaki and credit must go to Paul Bird, results would get even better if Hacking was hired full time to replace Tamada, both Hacking and Parkes have the talent and competitiveness to drive the team forward. The best looking in-line four on the grid.

GET SOME FREINDS ZX10ROB tamada has been injured in every race except for two. Hacking knows miller better than enyone and in race two he was S***. he is a crazy rider that took off salom and salom was therefore injured. I bet you hacking will be sucking on tamada's plums after the next couple of rounds.

If we had sugo back again i bet tamada would be high up, so miller deosn't prove anything..... :-o

you have to be kidding me GET SOME FRIENDS. Hacking was racing! he was faster because he had the bike set up better than the other kawi boys. Yeah maybe he should've been more polite to the regulars who are just riding around trying to get some kind of points, but what resulted was another couple of rides to prove he can set up that bike to run with them. It's all about set up and how comfortable they can push the bike. Hacker has the skill. If you forgot, this is racing. if you're going to be polite in a competative sport, go play golf, that's a gentleman's game.

I think Hacking did not do badly at Barber, keeping in mind he is racing a similar bike in AMA. It was therefore the a calculated decision to use him for the other two rounds. However I do not think Hacking covered himself and the team in any glory with his below par performance. Looking at the other sub rider Sheridan Morias, he only races a super stock bike in his national series and to have scored the points on a very unfamiliar bike and beating Parkes...and he did race at most of the European tracks, maybe he would have been a better replacement rider? Hacker may have the skill, but does he have the drive? Tamada showed he has not raced in a long time and had a very silly off at Brno...
