I really hope so. The more capable-of-podium-finishes brands/riders we get the better.

And Rins is a cool kid, we need more of those too.

All Suzuki need now is Vinales to return and they'd have 2 great riders.

Kinda yeah, kinda no. I mean he'd sure be fast but tbh I never liked the guy too much.

I'd LOVE to see Zarco take that seat.

2018 has to be one of the best seasons in two decades because of how that dynamic has changed. Everybody on the same electronics was a game changer, and as much as I might be pilloried for saying so, one brand of tires has been a good thing, though it would be better if they were Bridgestones. If Dorna don't do something stupid like go to 800s and just keep things as they are, we will be looking at a golden age in Moto GP.

Also, I can't wait till Moto 2 stops being an all Honda field.

I thought there were a few others in the mix like KTM, Suter, Kalex.

Yep, I like Rins. He had a rough first season even before it began after his big stack-in at Valencia testing in '16.
There were times in Moto2 when he as unstoppable.
Currently though Suzuki have their concessions back. Clearly they will loose them with Alex's current pace. I genuinely hope they can maintain position as and when full factory rules are imposed on them.
