Fair comment, you may be right. Guintoli isnt flying in WSBK either at the moment, but it may be settling in which is the issue. I think it is almost impossible, Spies maybe the exception, to switch series and be good first three tracks, Kagayama will struggle to adjust, what has happened so far doesnt help as it reduces track time.
I get the feeling Reynolds and Valentine know this is their best chance for years and are on the riders case, keeping him work minded too, they both look very serious at the moment, it has had a good effect on Hill that is for sure. He is impressive especially at Oulton. I think Valentine knows at anytime HM Plant could get it together and give them a tough time, both riders but especially Kiyo look very good, the set up hasnt looked good as they said. I cant see a challenge from anywhere else, good as Easton is he surely can only take the ocassional win.
The lead I think is bigger than camier's last year, it was about 78 points clear after the sixth track. Cant remember the third track difference.
Whats your thoughts on HM plant this year? Whats going on? Rea's bike is performing well enough, the Suzuki has the edge but the WSBK Honda is good enough to challenge.
All of the bike testing boys have been made fools of, raving about the Aprilia when the Suzuki and, BMW is starting to look, the class of the field, they never spoke about that happening.
