He's still better than 99.9 % of the people on here. But when it comes to mixing it up on track it always seem to go tits up.

All you web warriors crease me up. When are you all gonna realise that no one gives a f#%* about your bigoted opions apart from yourselves. Just keep watching/ reading about road racing but keep your opinions in your head. Have you nothing better to do ( like actually riding motorcycles) than typing about them. Get a life. X X

Now I'm confused.....

Hough.............am i missing something here?.............haven't you just typed an opinion..............about people typing opinions. There's a word for people like you you know!!! And surely you can't ride your bike 24 hours a day, can you? Well i know i cant, i've got 2 race bikes so that's me scuppered straightaway. But you probably have opinion on that........

Leecho as the owner of 33 healed up broken bones (i know i know, not enough time on the tit as a nipper) the worst to heal and slowest was my left wrist scaphoid bone, broke it in 4 places racing at Aintree, no horse jokes please, proper bored of them now!!! However the most painful injury , dislocated shoulder, fook me, that one brings water to your eyes. That was even more painful than the 7 breaks in the tib, fib, ankle and foot in my first (and as it turned out to be, last) parachute jump!!!

Your comments on JT, harsh mate, (especially 2 "lucky" WSB Championships, LUCKY? TWICE!!! have a word with yourself) but it's a fair one that it's gonna be difficult for him to come back to the top from here. Personally i'd love to see him come back to BSB, still think there are better times to come for him. Afterall, how old is Carlos Checa, Max B and how old was Troy B when he won his last WSB crown? It's not neccessarily a young mans sport these days. Glad Shakey, Kiyo, Tommy Hill and Hopper are all in BSB. He'd be a top BSB signing to go with all them others, once a racer, always a racer.

leecho/call child line

you are getting bullied on here mate ,your just not putting your case over, but don't buckle,look jt is not riding, well suprise suprise.he stated he doesn't want to come back until he is winning, well as thats never going to happen then retire,or as many say come home to bsb,i would love to see it,if you think this man can win a bsb race then you insult the standard that is bsb,hopper is no mug nor is byrne and that is this year,the last two or three seasons have been just as tough,the spiral is down and way out of control for this bloke to climb back ,but don't worry because according to jt he is an integeral part of next years bmw team,so wsb 2012 is a cert ? want to take that bet to ladbrokes jt fans ?

Toseland would never cut it at BSB now, perhaps the Triumph Triple challenge, he might JUST get a odd podium there.

Leecho - point taken.

Leecho maybe you're right, maybe he wouldn't cut it but i'm struggling to see how he's gone from front row of a Moto gp qualifying seession to 'Triumph Triple challenge' (cheers shepshep) in what, 3 years? (I think that 2nd place Moto GP qualifying was 2008 wasn't it?) Do you really lose 'it' that quickly? I think he's only 30ish also isn't he? A relative youngster still compared to many. I'm certainly not having a go at you in any way, shape or form, like others are, more just trying to figure out how it's come off the rails for him so quickly. But, point taken.
