Interesting. But since Kawi doesn't run an AMA team and Tommy isn't up to the level of a WSBK rider, I doubt we'd see him on a Kawi anytime soon.

I don't think anyone is going to hire him after his behavior in the last two races in NJ. Not only did he refuse to help his team mate that was trying to win the championship (he finished ahead of him on Saturday) but, he almost took his team mate out on Sunday with a ridiculous attempted pass for the lead which resulted in taking himself out. Sure, it was the best racing of the entire season in NJ but, I wanted to throw my beer at the TV when I saw Hayden riding like that. It was pathetic. He needs to learn how to ride on a team before any team will even consider hiring him.

From what I understand Kawi is going to be backing the Cycleworld Attack team. I also would not be surprised to see Rapp on the Kawi.

Steve is fast on ANTHING but inconsistent from week to week and Tommy? On a factory bike he is a 3rd to ? finisher. On a factory supported bike :dontknow: I think he'd sit out like Roger.

Roger did do well though towards the end of the year and he has many yrs ahead of him.

Rapp was impressive for such short notice. Hope Kawi pulls it together. Also pulling for Beach!

Steve has ridden EVERYTHING. I met him when he was riding the cycle gear zx7 in Northern Cali many years ago. I hope Beach does well also, but I wonder if these kids get started to early and burn out:dontknow:

Tommy is not half the jerk Mladin was and he didn't have a problem getting a ride...albeit it was the same towards the end and he was winning. :dontknow: ....just saying I don't believe that will be a consideration for TH.

Yeah Beach looked really good in supersport and his first few races in superbike were strong until he went down 3 or 4 times. I think his move up to superbike was a bit pre-mature. I think he will come around.

I think he should have done the year in DSB then moved up but that's a moot point now. JD needs a solid mentor and he'll be at the front soon. I'd love to see it be Hayden but he's looking for a paid ride IMO and Attack doesn't have the budget for that. I honestly can't wait to see who the 2nd rider turns out to be. I'm ready for the 2012 season already.

I think that's what happened to Eslick at Mid Ohio when he didn't make it to qualifying.

So the golden age IS coming BACK :lol: As a dad I have to say I hope not for my son's sake. And it this a result of our economy? ... Now we are back to personalities. I like the NO cookie cutter riders. But can they keep it to groupies and rental car thrashings? No drugs.
