@ RSMick. And just how many WSBK riders over the years got fast tracked striaght to a factory GP team?

1. Overall super bike riders haven't had the same opportunity as lower classes GP guys moving up.

2. WSBK machines and tech are closer to GP machines now than at any other time. That and the fact that just cos prev guys didn't make it does not mean that NO super bike rider can now does it?

Hardly a strong argument Mick - it's full of holes and not really fair to condemn riders who are clearly fast and not even had the opportunity to test a GP bike to write them off out of hand IMO.

Haga, Edwards and Baylis, Haga was a full factory bike with WCM and Aprilia..

Nothing to do with Factory though, as soon as they have been faced with setting a bike up (please don't bring electronics into it again) and doing constant laps without making a mistake they falter.

Equally with the Tyres though.
