there there now:

"You bet, got you going alright did it not, bang bang incoming fire better take cover Mr Munch...bang bang"

Yet another cryptic answer with no real substance - are you in politics by any chance?

"Nice, the old post in another name trick to seem like old Chiefy has a supporter"

If you truly believe that I suggest request admin check my IP address against "Max Biaggi's syrup" - I imagine you wont, the same as you refuse to give a straight answer to a simple question

So, one last time, is JR consistent (bearing in mind hes second in the championship right now) or not (as you stated earlier)?

I await another jumbled, cryptic response........

So for those saying johnny isnt consistent i think his championship results speak for themselves
1st Year WSB 5th
2nd Year WSB 4th
3rd Year WSB 9th Missing 4 rounds due to injury
4th year currently 2nd not bad for being a loose cannon
And as for not having the know how for one on one battles haslam couldnt beat him on sunday and he out rode melandri at miller apart from the bmw BHP which melandri admitted was the only reason he beat him.
He also beat Haga and fabrizio to gain his first win in wsb.

there there now:

Fair play - I admire anyone who can admit a mistake

The Honda sucks - agreed
Johhny makes the difference - very much agreed
Aoyama can ride 4 strokes - agreed, but not anything like Johnny can

My point is that whilst Aoyama is no Rea, he is better than his results suggest and I believe thats due to riding a slow bike

Note I said slow, from watching Rea (particularly in America) he seems very comfortable on the Blade and they clearly have the chassis working well - its just a shame they cant extract a little more power from it

If they did I genuinely believe JR would feature on the podium every week

no doubt about it, despite the good form shown by Rea so far, Aragon is a horsepower track. If TK dont find a way to get more power out of the bike then that will be game over for em..

Jonathan Rea is without doubt one of the most talented and skilled riders there is - including those in MotoGP!! What Jonny does on that Honda is simply unbelievable! To see him correct himself immediately when he goes wide, sort the bike out and open the throttle to put him back where he was in the pack is awesome! The way Jonny overtakes on the outside and what looks effortless on the inside is brilliant, absolutely brilliant!!How people say Jonathan Rea doesn't deserve a championship win is beyond me as if anyone should be in the top position it is Jonathan Rea!! Imagine what he would do on a really good bike !!!???!!!
