    Not to WSBK championship.

    I had posted that news here before the xbhp server crash. Here is the link.
    But I did not find any update anywhere after that.

    Those people who tell you not to take chances
    They are all missing on what life is about
    You only live once so take hold of the chance
    Don't end up like others the same song and dance

    well open invitation from Honda Hanspree. there is some talks on a possible wild card entry for the german round. only wait and watch.

    this is what i want to see in Qatar.

    Bayliss vs Rossi vs Biaggi vs schumacher vs simonchelli vs rest of the superbike pack.

    its a HOT HOT thing this year!!

    Yamaha coming with their monster but inexperienced riders, BMW and Aprilia are coming with the big dogs, and they don't want to mess up their premier litre-bikes!

    Ducati is the long standing big daddy of it all and they ain't gonna sit back & watch the action..
    They're all gonna jump in and fight! yeeehaw! lets go!
    Motorcycle Snaparazzi. Tourer. Motorcycle addict. And so many things more...
    Think you've seen crazy automotive action? Not till you've been here!

    Inexperienced Riders?? interesting... i would not call spies inexperienced. especially if you followed his career in the AMA and a bit in MotoGP. remember what Ben Bostrom and Nicky Hayden. not to forget guys like Scot Russel who have dominated championships on new manufactures with AMA experience.
    yeah it will be learning curve involved. but with spies...

    as far as tom Skyes is concerned. he too hails from the BSB championship. why do we forget Toseland, Fogarty, Hudson, Bayliss, Kagiyama, Ryuichi Kiyonari all in WSBK and most of them Champions and multi Race Winner. Ryuichi Kiyonari 2007 BSB champion. now we have shyne Byrne BSB 2008 champion on a ducati.. he raced MotoGP too with aprilia. is that in experienced too?

    not to forget Yamaha has enough of experience int heir staff and team that is one of the most experienced and can turn anything into a race winner.

    about the part that this season is going to be MAD yeah it will...
