That leaves only 9 raceless weekends

(10 if you don't follow AMA) between WSBK starting up at Phillip Island in February and MotoGP shutting down at Valencia in November. And there's a nice 13 week stretch of racing from April through the end of June

I can deal with that.

Looking forward to this season!

15 Rounds?

Hard to believe that with the on-going global economic depression, the Superbike World Championship has expanded! Is this the most rounds in the history of the series? Mr Buckmaster makes plenty of sense when he talks about the cost of logistics. That's what ultimately killed long-distance production racing in Australia in the 1980s - the cost of internal travel and accomodation for the crew members required to re-fuel, change wheels etc during a race. The organisers could not see this, so the long distance races died, taking the once flourishing Production racing scene with it. The same can happen on a global scale to Superbikes, and MotoGP.
