because he seems to be faster than Max, and he didnt get the best effort from Aprilia. That said, hes not as fast as Kenan or Casey but he can win races if hes given full factory support.

Rea hasnt done that well with the CBR either. Hes the only one whose adapted to the Traction Control, which seems to be seriously lacking on that bike.

Btw, electronics are ruining riders who dont come with enough investment, especially on the weaker bikes that have poor implementations. Get rid of TC, and bring in some better tires and WSBK will get that much better. TC will slow you down if you cant use it effectively.

About right in the poll again.

Got to be slightly disappointed, hoping for a solid 2013. It will be interesting to see where the factory focus their efforts post max. Many have said their support to max has been to the detriment of his team mates (not even including enforced team orders). Whilst I don't subscribe to this theory as much as the tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists amongst you, I expect aprilia to be more even in their support. That said, I expect guinters to be upto speed pretty quickly.....

Rca- popularity is not just based on wc position. Why not just look at the final standings if that is what you want?

Checa was disappointing relative to 2011. Surely you cannot be surprised that 7 riders are ahead of him when you saw him placed eighth!? Now stop trolling.

you obviously dont pay very good enough attention, and if you read Dork's comments he is contradicting me, alluding to my conspiratorial view, which is nothing but fact, as it took Laverty's side of the garage many rounds to figure out what was causing his power to choke on him. Gross negligence and the off chance only he was afflicted by this issue? At the very least it was clear Eugene was not getting enough attention. To solve something that should have been covered by built-in-tests, calibration procedures or simple trouble shooting methods.
