I was just saying that signing Jorge would be a very Honda thing to do.
Cod psychology?

Maybe, maybe not. Just that J.Loís riding style best works with the Yamaha and the Suzuki. But that might not be enough. End of the day itís a factory contract vs a satellite contract.

True and that also raises not just the amount of technical support available to him as a decision making factor, but also the sting to his pride, which has proven to influence his thought process.

I'd probably beat up anyone that'd do that to me, but I don't have a road bike so we good

Agree. Pedro has helped developed this Honda that Marc is winning on; Marc seems like a guy who just takes what he gets and rides it (I have no evidence for my claim other than gut feeling). Pedro could help KTM. You get a race winner and a guy with experience riding what a championship bike is supposed to feel like, and for a discounted salary if Pedro wants to keep racing.

I will say this, I think Pedro could do damage on an M1. The RCV requires tires that are detrimental to him, whereas I think the M1 could be a natural fit for his style and dimensions.

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.

Honda just locked up the championship for the next few years.

Not only does Honda have the best rider in Marc, they have the most shrewd and savvy approach.

There were pro riders in Superbike (WERA) who did that - in the middle of races.
