anyone who believes Kenan actually tried headbutting Foret has never ridden a motorcycle before, at the very least over 100mph. You just cant head butt someone like that, and you wont ever get it because you dont know what the forces are like on the bike, if he wanted to head butt Foret he would have done it right as they touched not when he was taking a good look over to give Foret a bad look. It amazes me how many people actually believe Kenan was trying to headbutt someone who was a good bike length away going that fast on a bike with that much wind and gyroscopic forces. ...

Sam's pace was insane, just like Sykes at Donington and Assen, Kenan looks like hes trying to make up a lot of times braking hard and just cant make the slower stuff work for him, hopefully he and his team can start getting that bike to work just a bit better, to get some better lines, drive and stability where it matters.

Dont like him and he is a danger to other riders with his dangerous overtakes and pushing people of the track.

One of the only riders who i do not like due to there dangerous riding style.

One of the best interviews from Crash. Sorry to hear about all his tragedy in his family. Keenan answered the questions honestly and with lots of details. He's a very talented racer and I hope him lots of luck in winning the Championship and would like him to take another shot at WSB on a competitive bike.

in Turkish sources i read Sofuoglu said that he will make test at the end of this month with Kawasaki Factory Superbike ZX10R at Japan and according to results, they will make contract for factory WSBK or not. but probably he will try WSBK again at 2014.

ZX10R proved his qualifying pace with tom but kenan always have amazing race pace so it will be great combination together i think. Tom sometimes can't keep his rhytm in the race but Sofuoglu can do this. (now brits vote this comment disagree now)

That would be great to see him on a good bike. Sykes must have signed a deal with the devil though, hes ungodly quick on that bike, and now that they seem to have a somewhat acceptable handle on the tires, and an advantage on some tracks, the zx10r seems to be the bike to beat in race trim, cant count out Aprilia, BMW seem to have a real nervous bike, where is the R1 ???? I have to think Sam Lowes and Rossi will be teaming up on that one when it happens, would be interesting to see Jorge jump ship to Aprilia :) One can only hope. And then Dani + Casey + JR on factory Hondas w/ V4s :)
