What do yall have to say about him?.......and yes i believe hayden won AMA last year...not suzuki.
correct. Roger Lee Hayden won the AMA Supersport Championship last year on a Kawi. and Jamie Hacking is finishing most races third this year behind the 2 rockstar makita yoshimura suzukis. Kawasakis'aren't bad, I'm sure Ben Spies would do just as well on the ZX-10 as he does on the Gixxer.

I don't think that he's saying that ONLY Italians ride Ducati, just that they "prefer" an Italian, and if they were talking to him, probably on a satellite team as a most likely scenario.

Makes sense.

LOL. If you follow Ducati you will know that they CLAIM that they will always have one Italian in their line up. Soooo since they have Stoner the Dingo that means Hayden will not replace Melandri. Now before you tell that is not true cause the Alice team doesn't have one then I will say they talk about their Factory teams.

WSBK - Troy Aus, Fabrizio - Italian
MotoGP - Stoner Aus, Melandri - Italian

However in 2004 they had Toseland Brit and Laconi french, soooooo who knows

Well, at least Laconi has a name that ends with a vowel... that's almost Italian!
