Nicky moves to WSB

Guess we are all so overwhelmed by the new Gen that no one has mentioned this yet? Sorry if repost.

Beat me to it! Glad I didn't repost this.

My thread title was going to be....
"Washed up? Or smart move?"

Still not sure myself. But the Honda ain't competitive and I don't think Nicky will be able to do anything with it. So it just seems to me that Honda is basically forcing his retirement.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Honestly I cant follow WSB because I cant get it through my cable provider (miss it dearly though) so its too bad to hear that Honda is not very competitive. Im guessing Nicky didn't do this a few years back because it just might not have been available to him then. Sure wish he coulda made the move years ago though.
Fuggit, ....at least there's a new Gen out right??? lol

Yeah, I don't get it either and I really wish I did without having to pay MORE money to see them live. I've been trying to catch the youtube re-runs when posted, but even that's tough.

Honestly, I think Nicky is on the back-slide of his career. He hasn't been talked about much and hasn't been able to do much with his current ride. I'd like to think his MotoGP experience will help him in WSBK, but I don't think so. I think this move will be short-lived and not much more than a whimper in the paddock. I doubt the KRT boys are worried. Let alone the Ducati, Aprilia, and Suzuki teams either.

Wait, there's a new Gen out? When did that happen?

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Don't be hater's but I get every race and love watching Kawi kick some butt. I think Hayden still has a lot left in the tank. Its sad he has not had an A ride in Motogp for many years now.

That's what happens when you don't put in A Ride performances.

Don't get me wrong I'll be cheering for him, but he really hasn't gotten it done on the world stage and nobody in the current age cares about his exploits on a 1000cc V-twin against 750cc Inlines back in the day...

We will have to agree that we disagree. His 2006 World Championship was not what Honda wanted. They built the bike for Pedrosa and Hayden still won the championship on it. Much to Honda's disliking and even Rossi couldn't make the Ducati a winner. I think it still sticks in Honda's craw that he did win.
