Go Tom!

This season has been a true showing of what you and the Kawasaki can do in only the bike's second season. Can't wait to see how the end of this season plays out.

At this stage, him and Melandri are the guys to watch.

I know that the Ninja had a lot of potencial and its a damm powerfull bike=).. But i wish that rain for this race i wish a lot.. Normaly this track is very suit for the Ducati very hard to beat the red Team here.. But with Rain Tom is a master its more esay to use the Ninja here on wet condicion.. Man if he win both races i will be so happy, sht.. So many years waiting to Kawasaki become what they are right now a competitive Team.. I wach then since the time of Scoot Russel on the zxr 750 i wach Antony Gobert making miricles with that bike then come Yanagawa time, great rider but the Ninja was not very competitive.. Then come the ZX10r 2004 A damm great bike i was thinking was this the machine but no still the same then come the 2006 design and i was thinking Damm i dont like the bike loocks so much big why they think this will be better?? and they get one podium nothingh more.. then come other beast him 2008 beautifull bike allways think this bike is a winner but they have hard time,

Yeahbut it wasn't a special affinity for the Nurburgring circuit that gave Sykesky the win last year ..... Its because he has webbed feet and an unbelievable snese of feel for what that Kawasaki is telling him about grip when he's riding in a river.

I really hope he wins.

But if he does it'll be because he's become even more of an all round class act and the bike's getting really well sorted.

I am usually happy to see Tom win but last year i wasn't as it was Nori's only chance of a win until he binned it.....just like he binned it when Walker got the last win for Kawasaki a few years ago.

This year there is no Nori so go for it Tom, wet or dry :) Hope Loris does well too and if they are both on the bike next year i believe they could dominate as long as that Panigale doesn't come in and kick everyones **** out of the park! :)

@ Pizdoff

Agree fully. Nice post.

@ Cubikrube

I notice a funny pattern. A lot of us Sykes fans seem to be / have been Nori fans. I still would love to see him back.

I think it's so nice seeing some people finally getting behind Tom. GO 66!!!
