Although I don't understand how this guy is still getting rides, I guess his 203 starts mean experience. The Honda is underpowered and so will be his results. I would love for him and the team to prove me wrong but that isn't going to happen. Until Honda puts the same effort that Kawi, BMW, and Aprillia ( along with 40 engines per season ), are they are destined for 5th in the championship. Its a shame really ...

I hope Michel likes hospital food. He may soon be in a bed beside Jonathan or at least buying crutches in the same shop as Leon.
I'm losing respect for Ten Kate. i don't know how they can justify asking riders to risk life and limb on a bike that isn't up to the job.

Could't agree more with tetley. These guys are on a bike well outdated and if honda are not investing i don't understand JR is so loyal . He must be on a very good contract. but you are risking all.
But he knows his own business best.!!!
