I've learned a new level of hatred for that BMW ! The Kawasaki is finally there in terms of the bike and the rider. Tom will figure out that he don't need to lead every lap and when he does he'll start leading the last lap on most every race. Leading is the hardest thing to do and toughest on your equipment. With no one in front of you to pace from you don't know how hard to push your tires and equipment and without fail you use it up when you could be saving it for the end. Now if you have the power and talent to gap the field by a large margin than leading is just fine but not when everyone has just about equal everything. A long talk with Tom about this and he'll be on top every weekend! Thank you Kawasaki for finally putting an effort into road racing and not spending every dollar you have on some dirt bike riding, ungrateful, disloyal, Drima-Donna ! ! Proud days for all us die-hard, loyal Kawasaki supporters are close at hand !!!!!!!!
