I do! But I kind of lost interest in WSS a bit after Lascorz went out. Luckily I did catch Imola though.

Anyway deserved champion, and of course a Dutch team winning the championship makes me proud.

It will be interesting to see how he goes on a Moto2 bike.....judging by Michele Pirro's performance when carrying an injury on his guest appearance he should be near the front.

The straights are going to seem long tho' after being on the much faster SS600 bike....

Moto2 is a serious test for him to see where his level is.

If he goes well, to ride in Moto2 next season could be a time waste and/or maybe better for him to try MotoGP before 1,000 cc next year.

His style is very close to MotoGP 800 cc engines and 1,000 cc machines can hurt him as in WSBK. Anyway let' s see what happens and I wish him best.

Agreed it will be a big test, however I don't think it will be a waste of time - assuming he has ambitions to be in MotoGP (and which world champ doesn't?) it will give him the opportunity to learn the circuits. Plus although they don't have the electronics Moto2 bikes have a much bigger range of chassis adjustments than a Superbike (let alone a WSS bike) so it will give him the chance to learn setup skills which won't have been developed in a career in WSS, but will be required in MotoGP.

Personally I can't wait to see how he gets on.

Superglue is going to get destroyed by the big boys in Moto2. This is a rider who fights dirty and then whines when people put a firm move on him. DeAngelis, Debon, Iannone etc will eat this punk for breakfast if he puts a move on them. Cant wait to see him get put in his place :-D

Nonsense,

MotoGP is the class for Kenan. I would like to remind you Motegi last week and the contest between Rossi and Lorenzo which I think the best of season in all series!...

This is racing and just the style of Kenan. Who can blame Rossi for this amazing moves? Otherwise it would be a boring race and I think Kenan is the man who can offer us similar great show!

Come on Guys

Accept the reality, respect Kenan and wish him good luck. That' s the fair play.
