Tech 3 Yamaha? What? At least wait until he can get a better ride with probably more support anyway

He needs to take whatever he can get, superbikes has nothing left to offer him, motogp experience is valuable and real talent will always shine through.

he's already said a million times he won't go unless he gets a good ride. he definitely won't go to a team with dunlops. everybody put your keyboards away.

Nothing will come of it, no chance. Can't hurt Poncheral to ask all the same.

Tech3 wont have dunlops next year. Still I doubt JT will betray Honda and go to Yamaha, considering it's not even the official team.

Bad idea on all parts. JT should accept nothing except teams that get regular high finishes. It would make tech 3 look worse when he does badly too.

Although i am not opposed to factories taking risks and hiring extremely talented riders from less taped resources, i don't feel any superbike rider has a place demanding factory machinery.

I Ride: Has pedals
If JT accepts nothing less than a factory ride, he wont be in MotoGP in 08. It seems that most teams are fairly sorted with works riders. There might be some shuffling, but I cant see JT taking a factory ride from anyone not already in the series or coming from 250.

Tech 3 are rumoured to be on Stones next year, pretty decent rubber. I think it all depends on the deal Poncey has with Yamaha, 08 Yamahas with a few engineers from the factory could be quite competitive. At the moment its hard to say how good the Tech 3 machines are, they are riding on crap rubber, with fairly ordinary riders. These guys would be doing shite with Dunlop shod anything.

I think he'll end up on a satellite machine, assuming Burnett is talking to everyone what do you choose, D'antin, Poncey, Gresini, LCR, Montiron, Roberts.

Ok, so the last one was a joke.
