Would like to see what Rea could do on another machine but that could also be a disaster as he has been on this one brand for so long. Anyway good stuff by Rea....

I have always preferred the Sunday racers anyway...Haga, Vale etc. Although I was thoroughly impressed by Sykes last year in pole domination as well as Spies back in 2009!

I think Haslem is officially blocking talent from the factory HRC ride. Honda will have a new bike and Leon has valid reasons but just can't keep up anymore. I'd really like to see Nicky Hayden in WSB. He can win races there, bring an American (on camera) there etc..

It's hard to tell how Nicky would go in sbk these days he wouldn't be riding against a bunch of numpties. Melandri is a good yard stick to measure him against they both last won a gp race back in 2006. Race winning potential yes championship winner would be difficult with the likes of Guintoli and Sykes around especially if he ain't riding a factory bike.

Go Rea!!!

Equally surprised that you got it on pole in Imola.
