See Ben Spies last season.

The issue with the handlebar position was just the tip of the proverbial iceberg for Hayden at Honda.

That is messed up!

That isn't going to happen, unfortunately. Nicky better hope the Duc improves and he puts on a show with it.

Crutchlow made kind of an interesting jab at Nicky regarding his own prospects to go to Ducati; he said Nicky was willing to do just about anything to stay at Ducati, including a very rigorous appearance schedule which very few other riders would be willing to agree to.
