I'm going out on a limb and predicting that Corser and Kagayama on the Suzuki's are going to be a force this year.

I love Haga no matter what he rides. Is Garry McCoy in WSB this year?

It was only a matter of time, wasn't it?

Regarding McCoy, yes. Unfortunately he's on the Foggy-Petronas nail.

Now that he's glossing himself with a new handle he can re-hash all the same old crap from 4 years ago.

Ducati has two twins in the field and wins the pole and Nostradumbass thinks twins are inferior.

Re: The Empire (Japan) Strikes Back
I think it's great that we see all kinds of bikes in superbike. Having only Ducati was killing the championship, IMHO. Having said that, there are only 2 *competitive* Ducati bikes in the field. If you know something about Team Pedercini (those are the two DNF Ducati) you would know that the best they ever did in a field totally made up of Ducatis in the past few years is to finish almost in the top 10 with their top rider. I am actually a fan of Lucio Pedercini (their top rider), mostly because I admire the guts of a small company that year after year continues to compete without any chance of really winning. BTW, Lucio is the son of the owner of the team. When Superbike was at Laguna Seca I got to talk to him and some of the mechanics (I am Italian, so that's easy) and I can guarantee that's not a top notch effort: just not enough money and the bikes are older. But they do try hard.

Re: World Superbike for Dummies
Only two of those are factory rides Nostradumbass.

Last time I checked, you were aging too. You're only 4 years behind me, remember?
