Did they originally kick him off the circuit because of smoking the ganj??

I mean, its not like its a "performance enhancing" drug like aderol or something for concentration or whatever...... odd

No, he has never been removed from competition, he just has way too wild of a time in the off-seasons. I hope he can get his crap together, his is by FAR the fastest of the Goberts.

As long as it doesn't affect the riding.... and hes not too burnt from all the ganj... he should be alright... I've never seen him race though, or if I have, I didn't know him by name. Thanks for the article

Heard of the Go-Show? Thats what he is referred to a lot of times instead of by name.

I said this in another thread
If you want to see some of the best racing ever, find someone with the DVD of the 96 WSBK season. Watch Go Show backing it in at phillip Island, and overtaking 2 and 3 deep around the outside!
