Thats like hoping to win the lotto without purchasing a ticket, he is a decent rider in ama supersport but going onto the world stage to a team with much to little funding and a poor bike is a death sentence. He will be with them for probably 2 yrs at which point he wont be competitive with that bike on that budget and he will be lucky to get a job as a trackday instructor much less WSBK. I think it was a poor move on his part, going to that team what was he thinking? He is a Hayden he could have let his name by him a spot on the Suzuki team when it was obvious Max wouldnt return for 2010 if he had gotten out there earlier in the year and pushed his name around. I would take a big bet with anyone that you WONT see him inside the top ten all year.

Excuse me? "Lucky to get a job as a trackday instructor"??

We are talking about the same dude that finished TOP 10 in a Moto GP race on an inferior bike correct?

"decent rider in ama supersport"

you mean decent enough to win the championship he won right???


some people crack me up....

Hacking would have been my choice but they must be banking on the age and perhaps the existing fan base that the Hayden name may bring....

I hope he works out, He is actually a pretty good rider when he is on his game. But I think that all depends on the amount of money Kawi gives him for technoligy, They are known for being a cheap company to race for, Heck anyone could be a good rider if there team had alot of money.

I dont think so, cause the dmg is gonna go under with this crazy they are pulling but I think Hayden would have been under alot less stress and had alot better shot at better machinery in BSB.

Why do I have to send you a pm? Just post it up on the board here.

Ok....here's the deal. If I win the bet and Hayden finishes top ten in any race as you suggested.....I get to bang your chic. I'll even post the vid of it under the Video and Pic section.
