So others don't know ?

Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure.

ALL riders damn very well know what's gonna happen if they try to squeeze their bike in where it won't fit, they still do it anyway.

@shrieker

theres a big difference between reas collision and what sofaglue did. Rea saw a opportunity to pass haslam, sure it was small but as a racer you need to go for it. The ensuing melandri incident was just the domino effect, it was unfortunate that melandri was there. Sofaglue on the other hand HEADBUTTED a rider on the straight!!! now how on earth can these two incidents be compared ??? get a grip man your blind following of that cheating turk is clouding your reason!

Not a great fan of him personally, but he's a great racer and adds excitement to the grid. I agree that he often goes a little far, but it sure gives us something to talk about. I really admire his aggression on track.

Besides, it's always good to have a baddie for the drama of things and now that Max is gone, Kenan can step into his dark shoes.

1) He didn't headbutt,

2) Calling him "cheater" shows how bitter you are. Especially when you add the "Turk" and make it "cheating Turk" unfortunately it makes you a bigot, plain and simple.

Haven't kept up with WSS, but am surprised to see Keenan back again. Tremendous SS racer, but time to move up lad. I'm thinking win a championship twice and you need to move up. Of course, that being said, everyone is entitled to a pay day. If no SBK team wants him, then what choice does he have?

At any rate, it will be better racing than MotoGP, again.

My comments keep being deleted. So much for freedom of speech. All I said was that I wished this objectionable little Turk would move on so we dont have to watch his spoilt behaviour or listen to his eunuchs voice again.

Kenan is probably more intelligent than the average crash poster. Considering how Kenan doesnt have a big name country behind him, hes done quite the amazing job to conquer the 'european' series in SS. Now if he can just get a good (factory) bike in WSBK that is not plagued with electronics issues and is handy on the brakes (Kawasaki) he can run top 5, after that its a matter of how much support he gets from sponsors and the team.

Kenan didn't headbutt no one last season. He explained it in a video and explained exactly what had happened and from the camera angle joe blow watched on the box made it look worse than it was. There wasn't any contact or malice intended. He was merely gesturing with his head for the other rider to give him space.

The Linfoot incident was unfortunate, shouldn't have happened but it did. Time to build a bridge and move on. Rossi took out Stoner at Jerez and went on to finish 5th like nothing happened. Everyone moved on.

Kenan is as professional, calm and talented racer as you can find. The guy is a triple world supersport champion and going for his 4th title. I believe next year he will taeke the step up to sbk but he is still a champion plying his trade in wss.

Bring on the new season and Phillip Island.
