Inspeed , sorry if you misunderstood my tongue in cheek comments as they were not directed at Tamada San , for whom I have the greatest respect and admiration , so dont judge bru , I wish him the best of luck for the weekend but honestly , with him not having ridden at this level for so long , and with the competition so tough he will have a tough time for sure

Re the above comment about how come not Alex Lowes, Honda know he fell off their bike when he was on it before and binned his ZX10 BSB bike the weekend, as he does most weekends, so why put him back on it ? He was neither fast or a finisher. Thats useless for the team and also a fact. Therefore Honda put one of their own old donkeys on it. This is why you boys & girls write on forums not work in the sport. But it does make it fun reading them !

I think Xaus should stay home full time for his sake and the teams.I think his days are done in WSB,seems to spend far more time on his Ars3 than on the bike these days,he must cost any team he rides for a fortune in repair bills.Or am i just being harsh ?

I think Xaus could rebuild his career for his final racing years as I believe that no rider is fully "past it" until they are at least 43 or 44.

Anyway, it's very nice to see Tamada-san back on the world scene and I hope he can mix it up with the rest of the field.
