Sam stay in either WSS or try and move to Superbikes, in think moving to Motogp on a CRT bike would not be a good move.

We all know that you are a excellent rider and done excellent in WSS this season. Being on a CRT bike would be fustrating as you know it's just a different chassis with either a Aprilia or BMW engine which don't stand a chance a prototype Motogp bike.

If you were thinking about jumping ship then Moto 2 might be better move with a chance to get on a bike which Cal is on.

If you do decide to move to Motogp on a CRT bike, don't join Paul Birds team, as he will want to get rid of you the first chance he gets that's the way that bloke run's his team..

Would hate to see Sam rot away on a CRT. Even if you do well on a CRT you won't get a gig in Moto GP and dosn't really give you much cred in WSBK. Hope he stays in WSS or gets a run a WSBK.

For all his faults Buckmaster is a more professional manager/team owner than that chicken magnate.

Its a pity that Buckmaster cant bet the cash together to run Lowes in a PRT MotoGP team.

Lowes would do better there than having anything to do with PBM.

I am pleased that this year Simon Buckmaster has proved a lot of internet jockeys wrong, by proving that his team can run competitive bikes for top riders in WSS. I agree with him that if Jules Cluzel stays, then Kenan and Jules will be the favourites for the title in 2013.

I would quite like to see Lowes stay another year in WSS, which would make it an even better battle in 2013.

I understand that Lowes wants to make progress, however I don't think Moto2 would be the way to go - you need to bring a lot of money to the table and I don't think he would get a competitive ride.

He would learn a lot in CRT, but probably be forgotten and ruin his career.

A shame there are not more competitive WSBK rides available as I think WSS or WSBK would be the best route.

I am not going to join in with the knocking of Paul Bird and the PBM team (even though I would prefer that the Lowes twins not go to CRT).

It's easy to be jealous of a multi-millionaire businessman who is able to indulge to a very high level in his hobbies of rallying and motorcycle racing.

The world would be a less interesting place if we didn't have characters like Paul Bird who has literally put millions into the sport for many years often financially supporting riders in junior classes who don't even ride for one of his teams.

He also paid for Sykes salary out of his own pocket when Kawasaki weren't willing to employ him and what about his promise to Easton while recovering in hospital, to just get better and he would hold open a ride for him in BSB.

when you look at laverty and crutchlow winning all those races in wss,and setting new standards, and moving up to wsbk, fair enough,but lowes aint done anything much,who would want him on a faster bike,he should stay and prove himself worthy first,and make a name for himself

Bird has crapped on loads of people who have had contact with him, Starting with Hizzy and currently James Ellison.

FWIW he was also in court earlier this year for threatening to kill his wife.

Regardless of how much money hes put into the sport, he's not worth the potential trouble.
