wow @dannyboy, hacker, I almost forgot about him! He is fast and was always aggressive. He would actually be a pretty good fit. I'd like to see a young gun though on the green meanie. Give those up and coming riders a shot. Sykes and the team have proved they can set up the bike. Good on Salom to stay put, I just hope pedercini can set that thing up better for him and tati.

what's encouraging for kawasaki here is that good riders will want the ride,when is the last time that happened?Hope Lascorz does get better and back on the kwak.

Loris baz would be an excellent choice. how about kwak start sticking by some young riders. they are lucky to still have sykes, if it wasnt for birdy he wouldnt have had the ride. small memories from those who knocked birdy and the team last year.

Or give mark aitchison a shot. he showed pace on the pedercini last year and was unfortunate lose his seat. he would have been quicker than salom or mercado or whoever.

Baz also got stiched up by rob mac and his sponsers in bsb so wrong to compare his results from last year.

@ thruxton neighbour

OF COURSE! Aitcho! He was fantastic last year. Not really knowing the tracks. And had a couple really strong rider considering. Besides, it's not like that bmw is gonna get him anywhere near Where the Pedercini bike did.

I wish we got to watch BSB in South Africa.
I unfortunately dont know Baz all that Well.

there is no way jonathan rea would take the kawasaki ride. one of the main reasons he stuck with honda this year is because he is trying to get a motogp ride somewhere on a honda. if he was looking for another team before the 2012 season begun, you can bet all of the top teams would have been all over him.
