I think there's a lot more to it than Nicky sucking. I think he should be commended for keeping his mouth shut. From what I hear Honda has shafted him royally.

+1

Honda shafted Rossi too. Honda doesn't care about the rider, they just care about the bike.

Nicky won his championship IN SPITE OF Honda. How did they thank him for winning them a championship? By building the next year's bike specifically for his teammate! Then they basically made Nicky the test bitch - here Nicky, test this part and make sure it will work right before we put it on Dani's bike. All the while, Nicky keeps his mouth shut and is the company guy.

Yeah, Nicky sucks. More like Honda sucks! I've been a Honda fan for years, but I hope they never win another championship! In fact, I hope Nicky does well on the Ducati. That way he and Vale can hand Dani his ass every week! (With Stoner in the mix, Honda will be fighting for 4th!)

A little from column A and a little from column B in my opinion. But will be interested to see how he does on a Duc.

I agree. He got shafted and he took it for a lot longer than anyone else would. Another rider who Honda put it to is Josh Hayes. He got Honda the Formula Extreme title, and let it be known that he wanted to move up to Superbikes, but they brought in Neil Hodgson instead.

This is correct. Honda is making a habit of shafting riders. They drove off the best rider in the world. Then as mentioned Hayden overcomes and wins the championship and they reward him by making him a test rider.

Like all such shitty business they will get what they deserve in time.

Interesting quote from Nicky today. When asked about Dani he said he doesn't know why everyone keeps going on about Dani and him. He said that they aren't teammates, they don't work together - "Dani does his thing, I do mine".

The change will do him good.

I actually think the duc will fit him perfectly and i have nothing against the guy and I'm actually a fan. I sometimes wonder why all this hate for Hayden when Hopkins continually gets a free pass. Hopkins was on a Suzi that was making progress and he jumped for the $$$ and now continually sits at the back when his bike is not loosing a chain or crashing. I give more leeway to Hayden than Hopper, who has won nothing in Gp.
