I Ride: A bicycle.
I'm having a laugh at the so called this should be good for 2019, 1 year ago what happened, day 1 Pedrosa was on top, day 2 it was Yamaha and day 3 it was Ducati, fast forward to the end of the season, Pedrosa retires terrible season, Yamaha, almost vanishes from the top step and Ducati wins the wooden spoon for 2nd.
Anyone want to have a bet as to what happens this season?
Me my monies on MM to embarrass the rest again, yet he was the number one crasher last year with 23.

Yes, it means nothing.

I think we're just hanging on to any sort of action before the season starts and meh, so we get a bit overexcited. We all know that it means nothing. But we can't help over analysing.

Well, I can't.

The start of a new season is amazing and anything can happen. So excited and so looking forward to it.

The lazy money is indeed on MM and bets against are a bit foolish given his run of form.
JLo cannot be ruled out, regardless of whether he's thought of as pouty and lacking personality.
The Suzukis finished last year so strong - I don't think you can rule Rins out altogether...
Ducati are progressing in leaps and bounds and were so close the last couple of years that they can't be ruled out.
KTM - looking good and were also getting faster last year
Yamahas - much as the riders irritate me, they "appear" to have made a step forward. I also cannot forget the year Maverick did brilliantly in testing then nothing, so who knows what can happen this year.

It's a new season and almost anything is possible. That's why it's exciting and that's why we wanna overthink everything and pin vague hopes on testing.

Folks can sit back and smugly know that testing means nothing and yet have their own guesses at what the season can bring. Folks can get over excited about practically meaningless testing while eagerly awaiting the actual season proper to start.

Neither are wrong

Agreed @Furiosa . Testing is a petri dish primed for speculation. We have been starved of Motogp action all through the off-season and finally the drought is broken with a taste of new rider/team combinations. I realise this, however I can't help but get sucked into trying to make assumptions either.

I Ride: DRZ400sm + KTM SXF450sm + 511SMR
Dovi has said in an interview that there's no way to evaluate the 2019 Hondas because MM, Cal and J-Lo are all injured.

Just as salient is that HRC will be behind in testing and refining the bikes until the main riders are 100%.
