Badovini continues his march toward the front. He's shaping up to be this year's Carlos Checa--outperforming his factory rider counterparts. At this rate, he'll be in line for a full factory (supported) ride.

again Badovini, WOW! I don't know whether BMW Italia is at the same level of support from factory as BMW Motorrad but he outperforms them. Who is missing now it's Toseland but maybe he gave them some usefull ideas as Ayrton had mentioned before. Also Kawasaki/Sykes are up to my preferences:) Melandri will be an asset sooner or later, it's just a matter of time.

Bdovini is riding well, but his bike runs Magnetti Marelli electronics where BMW are using in house electronics. If the factory BMW team want to run at the front they need to use a competitive electronics package. Their in house stuff is good enough for superstock but not WSBK which has GP levels of electronics now.

So when will the BMW factory team be embarrassed enough to ditch the in house electronics for proven kit? Badovini has run circles around them the last couple of weeks.

I never understood BMW's logic for the in house electronics. They have went with a proven formula everywhere else - beam frame, nothing too fancy or exotic, reverse engineer Jap bike. They stayed conservative but went out the box with the electronics.

Keep an eye on Laverty lads. He's the fastest man out there in a lot of races. Just needs his tyres to hang on with him. If he can qualify well and go at the front instead of fighting through the field, he can win any race. He'll beat Marco any day!
