A bird told me he may end up on a Tech3 KTM and retire in 2020.

But yeah certainly, the best bike on the grid is available and it seems that a lot of riders don't want it. And why would they? They're going to MM's team, and I'm not blaming the guy but you'll never be on equal terms with him. He's got the benefit that he was breed in HRC. Plus he's one of the best
I don't think it's just that they will be the second rider, it's that he has embarrassed Pedrosa on the same machinery and Pedrosa is a better rider than anyone other than Lorenzo who has been offered the ride.

I'd love to see Lorenzo on the Honda though.

Yeah but riders like Mir or Miller would love to be on the best bike and win some races, pump up the statistics, they're not going to challenge MM right away. They're still young and there's no pressure on them to beat MM, now Jorge is a different story because he's an established, multiple world champion so comparisons would be unavoidable.
BarryMachine and libby like this.

No one seems to want an HRC seat and if you ask me that's fucked up
Miller denied being approached by Honda. I guess we will be subjected to lots of disinformation in the coming days

How much younger than Marc are Jack and Joan?
I keep forgetting that Marc is still only 25.
