I would like to check that out this year. Depends on what I've got going on. I bring my little girls with me so last year I took them to the aquarium on Saturday and did the races on Sunday.

Won't happen, he's tried SBK and Moto2 he says they are both not for him and prefers the 600 platform. Despite offers he has said he plans to finish his career there and mentor the other young Turk Toprak, who did move up to ZX10 STK1000 this year.

Really glad to see Nicky going fast on that Honduh...

If they can dial that bike in and get some better power out of it I think he'll have a good chance at shaking things up this season.

I think they are on the right track. With full factory support it can definitely be accomplished. It's highly unlikely that Hayden made the move to WSBK without factory catering, after all he wants to be the first MotoGP and WSBK champion.

Have to say I was impressed w Hayden. Wasn't expecting him anywhere near the top 6 or 7.

Don't forget AMA 2002.

He'd be the only person with the trifecta out of the U.S.

I could tell he was obviously a career 600 guy but didn't know why so that's interesting. Strange that he's so damn good on that 600 but doesn't fit elsewhere.

True. That would be exciting.

WSBK News - Hayden: Move to WSBK is no retirement party

According to this article 2016 will be a year to lay the foundation and maybe a new machine for 2017.

I agree very odd, 2007 WSS champ to 18th in WSBK in 2008, 2010 WSS champ to 17th in Moto2 in 2011 and back to WSS champ in 2012.

But when you see how long it took Sam Lowes to get acclimated to Moto2 maybe he dropped out prematurely.
