I've always liked Corser a lot, at his best (a few years ago now) his Lawson like precision made him one of my favourites to watch. His record on a variety of different types of bike is amazing as he has raced on 6 different makes in WSBK excluding only Honda (for whom he earlier won an Aust Superbike title) and Kawasaki. I hope he gets the BMW to work for him and gets podiums.

BUT he has often seemed too vulnerable to bikes or tyres that are not exactly to his requirements, often leading to races where a promising first half is followed by a fade.

Yeah, the picky b*gger will probably be wanting ones that haven't been either melted or shredded.

Given that the BM eating its tyres was something of a limiting factor last season too and now there's a question about this season's Pirellis (what happened in supersprout anyway)? maybe he'd better slip Bridgestone a couple of quid?

I do still rate Corser.
But there are easier bikes to win on out there.
