What's wrong with that??? As far as I know Paul Bird will have full factory backup next year, besides I think the bike is not bad at all and world class rider like Chris V will be able to do some pretty good results with it. Maybe Shakey will ride with Kawa too. btw great times by Nori and Ben, is this an augury of fight till the end? :)

at first I thought,oh no. But then I thought maybe we're missing something, I seem to remember something in the press about the zx10 getting a big bang engine next year....Prehaps Vermi might know things that we don't........ :-o

The factory support for the Kwakas next year is going to be the best its been in years plus the MotoGP money is being redirected to WSBK along with Olivier Jacques the development rider. Shakey is also apparently very close to putting pen to paper alongside Vermeulen and Kawasaki are apparently going all out for a decent title challenge over the next 2 years....

I think I'd rather see Haslem as Vermi's team mate than shakey, or even Parkes for that matter(he hasn't done too much wrong this year) Contrary to some of the dribble that is posted on this site, shakey has had a very good bike this year and done very little with it :rolleyes:

Haslam would be better off moving to Ten-Kate on another Honda having spent the last few years on them. Now that Toseland and Crutchlow have slotted into Yamaha, Sykes looks likely to replace Kagayama at Suzuki, Kiyo may well be on his way back to BSB with Kagayama, Checa I think will be dropped and therefore will retire. Camier could go to Stiggy Yamaha, Bayliss (if the rumours are true) could go to Aprilia (not sure how he would get on with Biaggi). Byrne and Vermeulen at Kawasaki. Tamada will be out. Parkes may well be if his season end doesn't pick up.
Sterilgarda could well be out of it completely with no sponsorship. That just leaves the also-rans like DFX etc...
