im here for the weekend and i have to say the weather is really bad. i know the bike is turning into a vicious animal, but (and i never saw the crash, was too busy studying the heineken), i would say it was more weather related than donkey of a bike related. there has been three or four offs today with people just rocking up to the campsite.
5mph crashes. nothing worse.

@newsman, thats pretty hard to believe, Max made his fortune with Aprilia, I cant see him ditching the second fastest bike, and best bike over race distance. The only other viable bike is the BMW, which is a lessor bike than the R1, from the factory. We all know the Kawasaki in Sykes hands is the fastest bike out there, but Pirelli only make one kind of tire (unfortunately for them.)

Aprilia started the season winning with riders that are almost unpaid compared to what Biaggi costs... and they do not want to mess up with their situation. Basically they do not need Biaggi atm

I think it is a disgrace a major manufacturer like honda can send two good riders out on a crock of s--t like the decrepid fireblade and expect them to perform miracles thus expecting them to take it to the limit every qualifying and race,shame!!!!!!

Looks to me like the same anti-Fireblade person is posting here again and again under different identities.
The Honda looks to be doing well enough in BSB. Perhaps it's the riders in WSB that are not up to snuff?
