Hoping they can get that traction control sorted and looking for a much better result from both Johnny and Leon next race, but either way Johnny will still give us a double at Assen even if they take all the electronics off!

JR is a fantastic guy and it is great to see a Northern Ireland man hold the flag in WSB as well as Eugene Laverty but i think it is great that JR has helped put some input back into local sports here in Northern Ireland.

with regards to WSB i would personally love to see him on another bike for a crack at the championship as i think that Hondas will never win at WSB level

Apart from my own personal thoughts a great interview and good to see on

Apparently there's been no breakthrough with the electrics during testing. I would say that Johnny has to get some serious performance targets included in his contract with the team. It's bad news seeing such a talented rider languishing down the order.

I just love Jonathan Rea and have rated him since his early days in B.S.B. Jonathan is honest, down to earth and passionate about bikes and racing and that is what makes a good rider! Every race with Jonathan on the grid is always going to be a good one!!

Very interesting interview I really like Johnny and believe if he had a better bike he'd be the man to beat.
As for his stint on Casey's bike when so many on this site gave him heaps and blamed him for Vale's woes, as he stated he didn't want to wreck the bike or himself not because he was afraid but because of his obligations to his team and Casey's team.
