Thanks. Don't really rate Roger-Lee. But thanks. He was really unimpressive on the old Pedercini bike even though it was the old pig of a bike.

@ PShooter

I don't think it's the worst they could do.


I have no doubt. I think him and Sykes would be a super team. With race winning riders comes that experience and input to develop the bike. Could even help Sykes a bit. I do hope Sykes stays up front this season. It looks like the faith of his fans is paying off. But I guess we'll see how the season goes.

Kawasaki refused to pay Pedercini the money they would lose through Saloms sponsors if he switched to factory team. Kawasaki also said they wouldn't help Pedercini find a stand in rider to take Saloms seat.

Wide Line
One assumes that the suggestion of Karl Harris was a joke as was Sean Emmett. What about Kyonari. Drag him back from wherever he is. Might just kick start him again. Cant believe hes retired ?

Kiyonari is a no-go. He's a contracted HRC rider in the Asian Road Racing Championship for this year as Honda want to win that title.

As many people have stated already, I think Loris Baz should get the ride. Yes, he isn't the greatest at getting off the line, but other than that, he's fast, consistant and can ride his way up through the field.

Depends on whether Baz or Lanzi have long-term contracts in their respective classes, but they'd both be worthy of a chance. Damien Cudlin has looked pretty good in the few rides I've seen him on though.

Hey you guys,remember Roger Lee has a brother. Tommy is fast smart and was screwed by the Yosh guys this year when they sold his seat to Chris Clarks daddy. His only issue is the same as Rogers, he does'nt know the tracks. Plenty of seat time on the 1k bikes. Should have won an AMA title, bad luck mostly.
