Is it still a "mid-life" crisis at age 40?

Nicky will be limited by the bike's abilities, (aka: a bike that came out in 2008 and has remained largely untouched since then) and hopefully not by his age or ability to race competitively.

Doesn't seem like he's to happy with being demoted down to WSBK.
I didn't get that vibe. Nicky is always all business. He'll be top 10 - maybe even top 5 next season on the bike as is. Hopefully Honda told him he gets a cool new toy next year.

The fact that he was able to find positives from 2 bikes that will hopefully turn into 1.

I only read that one article. I know Nicky is always politically correct but I'm hoping he can be competitive on that bike.

Like Noel said, its hopefully more a question of the bikes performance than his. And hopefully with a new Fireblade coming out and his input he will be successful again
