A big shame, the race was really brewing up nicely. I admire his spirit though and think that in this case it was a better thing to crash (without injury) fighting for the lead than settling for second. You could see the same with Josh Brookes in BSB. Riders don't seem to mind so much as long as they given of their best.

No one likes to see riders crash, but I made an exception in this case. It gave me great pleasure to see the dirty riding cheating git sliding down the tarmac, it couldn't have happened to a nicer chap

I had to kill the feed when I saw him lose his front, but the bike isn't up to the task. Its like watching Ducati vs Yamaha in WSS, the R6 has every other bike by a mile when it comes to electronics and corner control.

I would love to see Kenan on an R6 next year, but that wouldn't be to good for the series. Hope Kenan has fun with the remainder of the year, but that R6 is just too good, and its really a no contest. Its like watching Marquez in MotoGP just hang around till the end and take off.

I will check out the race at Turkey, but that will be it for bikes this year, F1 looks about the only MotorSport worth spectaculating on about now, WSBK, WSS and MotoGP are pretty much over.

Good luck Kenan ! Dignity and Strength.

LOL your having a laugh, the Kawasaki is easily the best all round bike on the grid this season! The Yam is so old and had virtually no development for years until last month.
Its also got the most power (Kawasaki)

Well said Thorpedo.
PCXMAC the Kawasaki is easily the best bike this year and bear in mind that Sofuoglu has won his titles in wss by having the best bike each and every year.

Yup, they said the same thing about the Duc too. Its a shame there are so many ignorant 'fans' out there, but what good would the margins be with out them :)

Btw, Sam cant hold a candle to the ParkNGo team of 2011.

Btw, why does Scassa not even have a chance of a podium on his zx6r when he was challenging for the title in 2011. Lolz. You guys have no clue or are liars.
