Lots of names being bandied about Haga well do not think he is upto it saw him at thruxton at least i thought i did somewhere near the middle of the pack. everyone is talking about previous riders well its about time new blood came in or how else are our guys ever going to get to GP personnelly i would love to see Tommy HILL having a go, and as Bradley SMITH is suppossed to be going to GP next year stick him on a big bike and lets see how good he is, Sykes is showing the Kwacker is competitive it needs an aggressive rider to make the most of it its no good sticking on has beens or people winding down their careers Bring on the new talent and i hope that Lascorz can get through his terrible injuries and get back to the team

Fully agree about TOMMY HILL, Even Tempting Rea, I think Johnny would be unreal on the bike. Him and Sykes together would be constant podium fighters, definite championship contenders.

I DON'T AGREE about Bradley Smith. A young rider, yes, agressive, NO! I think Smith is the most over rated British rider out there. There is a whole wad of guys in BSB I would rather take than Smith.

Ideally, a fully fit Easton.

I lost respect for Vermeulen after his "I will only take a competitive ride" comment last year. Kawasaki stood by him and he basically coasted. He should've take a gap year to recover 'cause clearly the bike IS COMPETITIVE!

Damien Cudlin maybe... Any young AMA guys coming up?

What about Alistair Sealey?

The only rider name that is being mentioned that hasn't got a ride (as far as I know) is Damian Cudlin. I don't know much about him or how good he might be.

I can't see Nori Haga or Tommy Hill on the bike - they have recently signed for a Yamaha "Dream Team" to do the Suzuka 8 hour with a top Japanese championship rider. That will be very important to Yamaha so I very much doubt they could be released from their contracts - even if they wanted to be.
