Vermeulen out for the rest of the year

Chris Vermeulen is going to sit out the rest of the season since he re-injured his knee at the Brno WSBK race. I wonder if Kawasaki will try to fill his seat or will they park the bike for the rest of the year? I would like to see Hacking have a shot at riding it. Could be interesting.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

I hate to be cruel..but get rid of Vermeulen now before the 2011 ZX10R comes on line. The last thing we need is a rider that is not 110% to be taking the new bike through it's paces. Buy his contract out and get another rider. WE NEED TO WIN. Enough of low-balling talent to ride Kawasaki.

It don't matter who you put on this years bike, its a fricking boat anchor, I am embarrased to call myself a Kawi fan. That bike should not be slow, they have had three full years of development on it, no excuse:headshake

Well Hacking in WSBK would get his ass handed to him. Did he win a race in AMA on the 10 at all? Go after Maladin or somebody for the testing and then try to get Toni Elias with some big bucks to switch over if you can. But hey my .02 is as good as anybodys because we all know Kawi will suck it up all year like they always do.

I don't think it matters who they get to ride the damn thing, it's a brick......hell anyone would be hard pressed to even be competitive on the kawi unless they got a 10 second handicap or something! you think that KHI is going to pay big bucks to try and get someone good to ride a bike that's not capable of keeping pace with the rest of the field? hopefully next year will be different BUT that remains to be seen. I love my kawi's but it has always pissed me off to watch the struggle outside the AMA....and even there we're still having hell.

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.
