Silly Season
 
According to Speedweek, Dovi has re signed with Ducati, and Maverick Vinales has signed 3 year deal with Suzuki. Jack Miller taking Bradls's bike rumor will not go away.

im all for jumping at opportunities, but miller going to motogp reminds me way too much of ant wests wasted career.

westy was (is) a really talented rider, but jumped to teams that were never going to be winners time and time again, so his full abililty has never really been shown. remember yamaha germany supersport? he could have had that title, but went to fuckng kawasaki gp.

i can see miller doing the same. wait your time out in moto 3 and moto 2 kid, bag some titles and then take a vacant factory seat in a few years. a string of wc's is going to look far better than a string of 5-10's to prospective employers. thats what i reckon anyway.

and one more thought, bradls seat wont be a free ride i would imagine, he more than likely wont have to pay a cent to ride in moto 3/2.

Miller has stated that he wants to win a moto2 title. To me that means he intends on doing a season in moto2.

What would you do if you'd been offered a MotoGP seat on a satellite RC213V?
Wouldn't it be stupid to knock back that offer?
It may not come around again.

yeah, i know what you mean, but to be motogp wc, you cant be riding a satellite bike. and if history has shown us anything, its that satellite riders remain satellite riders. whatever happens, it'll be a tough decision for him.

The rumour was for Bradl's bike wasn't it?

Same team Casey Stoner started in MotoGP with. That satellite ride was the start of a good path.

Crutchlow announced he is staying at Ducati. Julian Rider says Jack Miller has signed with Honda for 3 years, most likely 2 years on LCR, then take Pedrosa's seat if things go as planned.

Ianonne to stay with Pramac on identical bikes as Cal and Dovi. New rumor, A Espargaro to Suzuki to team with Vinales. Never did think Suzuki was going to go with DePuniet.

Stories everywhere that HRC have signed Miller for 3 years.

Where will Bradl go? Bautista should've gone before Bradl.

I'd grab Bradl if I was Herve to replace BS38.

Well if those rumors are trumors it would look like JL to stay with Yamaha...

Id prefer to give Ianonne a shot on the Tech 3
