What is going on with Roger Hayden? Road Racing World just posted an article that states some really interesting information from a reliable source close to RLH and apparently HE is not having any issues and wants to race. But someone/something at Kawasaki is stopping the whole thing. And it isn't Attack Kawasaki, either. Absolutely f**king unbelievable.

Attack is the Kawi team this year, like Yosh is suzuki. RLH is contracted with kawi and that's how he's being F'ed by them.

Like the source said; RLH is ready and wants to race. It's the cock-jockeys at kawi that won't let him.

Hmm another Kawi decision brought on by the recession?
Since he has a 2 year contract, they have to pay him even if he doesn't race. So money shouldn't be the issue.

I think it is money, they may still have to pay him his salary, but that is still quite a bit cheaper than to feild a second bike every weekend. Racing at that level is EXPENSIVE, but fuck, Kawi is pissing me off with this racing effort this year, total shit sandwich:bs:

They are fielding the second bike anyway, except with a far less capable rider. So they have the expense with less expectation of good results.

Whatever the issue is I hope it can be resolved ASAP. I'd seen RLH in the paddock a couple of times last year and he was always the gentlemen, posing for fan photos and signing autographs. I was hoping after last year that he'd be able to come back this year strong.
