Honestly, I don't even know if Casey could ride that POS right now as it is. He was on a steady decline of win it or bin it and nothing in the middle his last 2 years at Duck. I hate to see Hayden go to WSBK or step down, as I think honestly if he was put on a competitive machine he WOULD be competitive again. He was faster or right behind Vale on the Duck. He faster or right behind Dovi on the Duck. Vale is good for wins, Dovi is good for podiums. That speaks volumes for Hayden.
Back to Honda on a Sat ride with factory backing, I would love to see this.
Also as for Hayden's help on Ducks market share. All the replica 848's sold out before they were even on the floor. He's pretty huge and has a shit ton of fans.
