If Johnny bought a pet duck it would drown itself

I wonder if he kicked the bike after the race today like in Germany?

I wouldnt blame him if he did.....

I understand these things happen (Checa at Miller for example) but theyre happening too often

No wonder he insisted on having Chris Pike in his crew as part of the new deal

what a display of defensive riding he showed in race 1, incredible. Nori really had no chance to overtake even with the slight straightline speed the Aprillia had over the Honda. Too bad in race 2 the battery died, but kudos to Honda and Ten Kate for developing this new system to give Johnny atleast a chance to fight up front. 2012 looks promising so far.... :)

Congratulations Jonathan Rea. two great rides, a win, and handled the immense disappointment of race two very well.

Yesterday LeisureSuit Larry was saying, posted on here, that the blade was an old shibby that would never do anything & next years version is cr4p to.

Lounge lizard Larry said the "Honda is so far behind the 8 ball that a slight 'evolution' will just not cut it."

Well if that is correct the Jonny must be a great rider.

BTW Ayrton Badovini is doing good work & Mark Aitchison beat the old Croc.

you've got in 1 sump rat Johnny is the best there is. I hoped he would move to another team because the blade was crap but it justs shows with a little bit of tweeking and Johnny's brilliance what can happen!

Johnny had race 2 all wrapped up by a country mile, had everyone well and truly beaten, but no one can beat bad luck, the same goes for Chaz Davies.

JR was remarkable today considering the CBR still has quite a power deficit compared to the other 4 cyl bikes,i noticed Eugene having to roll off before the top of the uphill climb cos he was gonna run into the back of the Honda on the 2nd lap of race 2.Good to see the wee man back with fire in his belly..

BTW,has "Stavros" not been on here to slag Jonny off yet?
