Sensational? I doubt that with the Grillini team he could do anything sensational, most likely it will be a disappointment for him and the fans.

And I say this as someone who was a huge fan of Haga - I cheered him against Spies and was sad when he lost the title. It's bad to see how both fell away in a few years' time.

The first 2 generations of the BMW S1000RR are total crap. They were absolutely dogs. Not until Melandri came in and the Italians took over BMW WSBK did the bike morphed into a proper racer. That said I assume Grellini is using one of the first generations so I recommend Haga he's better off taking it to the drag strip. Because that where they belong.

From a die hard Haga fan.

mmm, i know he use to ask for big money, but i still dont understand why no team after Pata engage him for ride,
a Kawasaki, a Suzuki, a good bike no matter which, come a good weapon on his hands...in 2011 he play high level and fight for podiums (LeMans i think) and some victories, (Nurburbring, i know was raining, but, is a satellite bike after all)

anyways, hope it will earn him a longshot, a last chance for the king without crown

Nitro Nori Haga, the Samuray of Slide,
come on, Kawasaki, give him a Renegade Ninja!!
