Edwards talking with Kwak

Yes it's true...Edwards has been talking to Kwak and he'd take Ant West's spot (he's riding like shit this year). That would mean a 100% American squad in MotoGP...pretty sweet if it happens.

P.S. I'm still a Rossi fan BUT I still root for the Monster Kwak team as well ;)

That would be interesting. I rate Colin as a development rider.

I've been EXTREMELY disappointed with West.

He rode so well last year to get the factory ride and now he's sucking!

What bothers me most, is his ability to turn around and bad mouth his ride... He did it with KTM. Time will tell whether he does it to Kawi.

But back to Edwards, that would be very interesting... Though, if he stays on present form, I can't see Yamaha cutting him.

No shit Colin has been very quick this year, he just can not put it all together for the whole race.

Kawi would have to switch to Michilins. Or maybe run a split squad like Fiat Yamaha.

Has Anyone noticed that Hopkins isn't exactly up there either this year? Just want to point this out as I think Kawasaki haven't got the bike right this year and that is why both West (more so) and Hopkins are at the back this year. Look at Hopkins on the suzi last year, he was doing much better on that, as was west on the Kawasaki.

Once i thought more than two strokes was masturbation. Now I realise that 4 feel better, and who am I to argue with my feelings.

Isn't Nicky Hayden's contract up this year? We should try for him. I think he would be a better developement rider, look what he did for honda. Even though he has to take a back seat to Pedrosa's spoiled little ass.

I read somewhere that Ducati is interested in Hayden and they've even had talks.

I wouldn't blame nicky one bit for looking at ducks, i would. Has kawi switched over to pnumatic valves or are we still using springs. Thats what made the big diff. for yamaha. Honda never intended for nicky to be thier flagship rider and they have made that very clear. Especially when his teammate rams him when he is in contention for the championship. If i were Nicky I would look for a team that was going to put forth the greatest effort to back him as a flagship rider or an equal.

Kawi hasn't done much yet. And Hopper continues to struggle... I was really hoping he and Kawi would be more competitive this year...
