Kiyo had a horrible season last year on Ten Kate Honda and said it's down to him that results are poor.

Max says the opposite.

Excuse or not? Hopefully not. He proved he could be fast on Suzuki, but the past means nothing right now.

If CBR1000RR isn't an competetive bike, why is it doing good in STK1000 and leading BSB? "All the other Honda riders" is just Broc Parkes, who's had injuries in a team that's new to SBK.

Max just couldn't get himself to suit the bike. He should go ride something else, maybe a privateer BMW as jimmy says.

Private BMW or Yosh Suzuki?

Rea is unbelievable no doubt about that....but i think the best thing for Max is to leave after this year. No point wsting time on this bike coz he is talented. I hope Tosland can get back on the TK for next year

Leon Haslam did have some good results on the Stiggy Honda last year though, and both Checa and Kiyo took race wins (5 between them) in '08. Bike is clearly better suited to some tracks than others, but you could say that about just about all of the bikes, even the Aprilia.

I'm still not convinced Max is 100%, physically or mentally. He had 2 horrendous injuries last year and was binned by Alstare for not being fit supposedly.

"If CBR1000RR isn't an competetive bike, why is it doing good in STK1000 and leading BSB?"

Because STK1000 and BSB are not WSBK.

That's like saying since Sykes did the double in BSB on the Kawaskai that he should be doing the same in WSBK. That's ridiculous. STK1000 and BSB are not on par with WSBK - it's not even close.

Of course STK1000 nor BSB isn't SBK. But in those categories, CBRs are competetive against other bikes of the same tuning level. So Max can't just say that CBRs aren't competetive against others, which he seems to be implying by saying "All the other Honda riders".
