I think they should choose a challenging/technical track to test that bike cause it got too many issues.I know Assen is their home-track but damn it,try something new.

"I think they should choose a challenging/technical track to test that bike".

What. You don't think that Assen is technical or challenging enough? I'm struggling to think of a track that better fits that description. Besides, being their home circuit means they have good bike information for there, as well as immediate access to technical resources from their workshop.

Wish they would calm the whole alex lowes thing down, he needs to work his way through the bsb thing and try to get back his mojo rather than swapping constantly and getting banged up, its certainly showing at present in his performances, poor guy is taking the offers as he feels he needs to but c'mon is this really of any help to him, same thing happened with a young James Toseland, too much to quick

Don't be so hard on "NumberXIII",

I know what he means and I will explain, ten kate honda have won 3 of the last 4 wsbk races at assen, so they have good settings for it so why not test somewhere they struggle

Because they are so familiar with Assen and how the bike should work there, it makes it easier to identify problems caused by the bike rather than problems caused by finding settings that work at an unfamiliar circuit.

Xaus coming back will achieve nothing. He will not get results and the experience will be of no value as he won't be in that team next year.
Better to let Alex accumulate experience and familiarity with the bike, in readiness for a full-time Ten Kate seat next year.

alex is no where near the level of wsbk,or even bsb yet,he is just filling a seat, as for rea ,start all over again,as nobody has been riding the honda fast enough to develop it and progress it, this year,while all the other teams have developed and progressed their bikes,tk (by hiring slow,and inexperienced riders)have not moved the honda package forward.i think this teams lost its way(in a competitive sense),rea will be way way behind,where he was when he got hurt,which was way behind.a total disaster from tk
