I'm curious to see if Stoner is fit and competitive in Motegi.
Likewise for Hayden. I can only hope.
Should be a fun battle to watch between Pedrosa and Lorenzo, as I expect those two will gap the field. Stoner could be a spoiler, though, and I actually hope he is. I would like to see him win out to close his career.
Will Spies finish in the top five? No would be my guess.
If weather is an issue, of course all bets are off, though I would still favor one of the top two points leaders for the win.
Will engine life be a factor for the title hopefuls?
