No one is doubting your awesome turn of spped Tom. I just hope that the teams worked hard to give you a package that doesnt melt the rubber so quickly...
If they can do that then Im sure youd be unstoppable most weekends.
I am super impressed with Toms form this year, really exciting rider to watch, and root for

We're at the half way point now in this championship so if Kawasaki are going to find a solution to this tyre wear problem then it needs to be now. Otherwise it's going to be 'close, but no cigar' for Tom and Kawasaki this year and that would be a shame.

Banter,this is the 2nd year of the new model zx10.A 20 year old honda would be a 900,so I think it's quite possible that the honda Rea is riding very well is not 20 years old.

BANTER.....Get some facts right first.

The ZX10r is a Gen 4, and is in it's second year of competitive racing, not 3rd.

The Fireblade franchise is indeed 20 years old, but, the bike is a 2012 version, which is a 2008 model with a few improvements.....
