It is amazing to see Tom's journey from an also ran to world champion. I rate him but I remember coupler or few years ago wishing and hoping he will do well and that Kawasaki will give him a good bike.... When they let him go at Yamaha, I was gutted for him because he had a good was just against the back drop of a brilliant season for Spies.....anyway He is here...the new King!!!!!

shamarone Convenient for Honda and Yamaha and even Suzuki that they can say that are not figthingh against Kawa in Oficial Mod, but was not Kawasaki that ask then to leave..I understand what you whant to say to me but If Honda and Yamaha and Suzuki are using the Publicity in Motogp to sell bikes and didnt upgrade there road models is there probleme.. i know that at least Honda or Yamaha or even Suzuki can lunch new models and maybe more competitive then the corrent Ninja but first they have to do that, thats why i say at the MOMENT the best Japonese Bike on the Market that is winning every review and that has been supported with racing Glory in Wsbk that use the Road models is the Ninja zx 10r, and for that they dont even need electronics because in BSB you can also see that who rides one Zx10r have one competitive bike.
