Vintage Haga on display a truly mega performance clawing his way back lap by lap setting faster and faster times passing rider after rider, oh and all that on a much more inferior bike. Rea did exceptionally well to hold him off he didnt make a mistake so credit to him, but he does owe alot to Honda horses for helping maintain an advantage on the straights. It made me cringe to hear that ill informed tard Hodgson claiming Haga's Aprillia would be quicker down the straights when that clearly wasnt evident Haga couldnt even get in the slipstream on the gas despite being so close. Besides if Hodgson has been watching WSBK hed see that the PATA Aprillia is one of the slowest bikes on the grid , even the privateer dukes are quicker!

WSBK is bettr than motogp for anyday and its the actual pinaccle of racing real bikes which will show off soon in a few years. Motogp is dying and only owned by Honda Yamaha. People are watching more and more sbk and eventually it will become more popular and motogp wil b only for virtual bikes fan. Rea did nice to be in wsbk. hes the best wsbk rider. He knows it. Its better to be a champion to be midfield in another international competition. Midfieldrs are always forgotten be it motogp or WSBK. so be in WSBK and be a Champion and make History. AL d best for 2012. New Honda cbr fireblade rocks.

Actually moto2 is the most interesting because bikes have same HP and hopefully next year with the intro of 1000cc and new teams motogp should return to it's former glory.

That wasn't vintage Haga at all. The Haga of old would have made 5 passes on Rea on the last lap alone, there wasn't a single overtake in the 9 or so laps Haga was behind Rea! Even F1 has more passes than WSBK these days.
