What a pile of toss...

Were they not watching BSB at Brands this weekend just gone ? Why aren't they calling Shakey Byrne to replace Xaus ? Season finale, go out with a bang and all that ?

Shakey has ridden the wheels off of that Firebucket all year, and was imperious at Brands on Sunday. He also flies at Portimao as we know.

Oh well... Ten-Kate obviously want a totally direct replacement for Xaus - someone who will tootle around at the back of the grid or more likely crash on lap 1.

What a joke.

Ur right John, you did make a joke.

I nearly fell off my chair laughing at the thought of 'Shakey' back in WSBK where he failed miserably.

Although, it is Portimao ... the track Byrne wishes he could roll up & carry around with him.

John - they have to pick someone who is available and willing to take the ride. Muggeridge fits the bill on both points although I agree he is unlikely to be running up front.

Dice - give it a rest - you seem to be as obsessed with knocking Byrne as John is with bigging him up!

Why would Shakey want to take it,Muggers is getting his excuses in early because he knows that he will have to ride that bike at 110% to get within a second of Rea's times,and if you do that you are gonna fall

There is only one man capable of riding that TK Honda at that level (and even he has trouble keeping it upright)So why would Shakey want to embarrass himself,or even worse,hurt himself for no benefit??

Shakey is no-ones fool-he knows the crack...

Its good for Muggas to be back, but not in this team, since many years we all know the 2nd rider is ****, not from hisself as rider but made by the team, the team put since many years the 2nd rider in the wrong direction ..sorry Karl wish you all the best but dont choose this....
