James used his brains and race craft to win his 2 championships and is now using his brains agin with this injury. there is no need to return until he is 100% even if it means sitting it out all season. if you are injured then thats it. too many riders let panic set in and return too early. but i suppose he's in a no win situation with his haters whatever he decides to do !!

I hope it all goes well for James, and hopefully we can see him back to full fitness so we can see what he can do. Forget about championship points now, he just needs to go for some solid results before the season ends to prove that he can get the job done. He needs to at least match Badovini, but thats going to be difficult at the moment as Bodovini looks to be going really well. One things for sure, JT does not need any more bad luck, onwards and upwards.

Unfortunately we will never see JT's potential since he has be stifled his whole recent career by manufactures keeping him purposely off of full factory kit. We know when he has the kit he can dominate everyone but I honestly think people are afraid to give him the chance to ride on dominant motorcycles.

Well looking at Badovini, I don't think that factory BMW is any better than private team or at least not by miles. I bet Haslam is kicking himself for leaving Alstare.

Oh how the mighty have fallen I remember when JT's name in a title would guarantee 10+ pages of comments now look how few comments he gets. BTW he should head back to BSB he should be faster than most of the guys there so at least he can finish his career fighting for podiums vs top 15s.

Badovini has definitely set the bar for all the BMW riders. So JT will have a lot of catching up to do.

On another note as was mentioned here I wonder if JT heading to a National series, like the BSB, might not do him some good. Sometimes you need to step back to move forward.

Dude, give it a rest - I actually though you were joking. But you are serious??!!

For you to even lay the blame on the manufactures just shows how delusional you are. He was on a factory bike LAST YEAR. Do you think he should have replaced Jorge or Val at Yamaha in MotoGP? Did you think he deserved a factory ride in MotoGP at all? And before that he was on factory kit in WSBK with Ducati and Honda. So your rant is 100% invalid and without evidence.

And please don't comment on my tag because you don't know anything about it. It has 100% nothing to do with post or internet following or anything internet related at all.
