Nori Haga in BSB for 2012

http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle-...012/19959.html

When i first saw this, i was pretty sad. I still want to see Haga take a WSBK championship, but i think his time is unfortunatley close to over in that series. I felt like it was like taking a step back for Nori, but this could be interesting. It would be nice to see him on the podium more. BSB has always had a lot of great talent, but it seems like they are throwing in more and more. Hopkins last season and maybe Nori this season would be kind of cool.

Put Hopper and Nori in the AMA...now that top racing there!

He will always be Nitro Nori and a great racer.

I saw his name wasn't on the provisional entry list for WSBK the other day on that RoadRacingWorld.com article & figured he'd wind up somewhere else...glad to see he's still at it.

Yeah me too, i don't think it is definite yet. I think he was looking at going back to JSB too....

I just hope he does not retire yet.

I agree, Nitro Nori deserved a WSB title!..... as with Guy Martin and the TT
will be cool to see Nori Haga round Cadwell Park and the Mountain!
