thats because hes on a slower bike Sam, go back to PTR sam, and watch you crash your bike trying to keep up with Kenan. Please.

btw, Cluzel would have no problems beating you on the R6 either :) enjoy your parade this year, dont bother hating on people who manage to control the race on a slower bike.

and you would pick a GPX over an M1? Straight line performance is good, but if you cant make the tires last or get good grip in the turns, it means nothing. Sam's pace is good enough to win by 10+ seconds a race. Hes only sticking around for the 'fans'/cameras, he said as much during the post race interview if you were paying attention.

The Kawasaki might be the fastest bike in a straight line, but Lowes might be the better rider. Winning at high speed Monza on a bike that had no business winning against other bikes with a clear top speed advantage shows how good Lowes really is. Cleary though the bike is good enough at other areas to let Sam use it's strong points to his advantage. The bloke is bloody good.
