    My hope for 2015 is Dovi & Crazy Joe at Ducati and Crutchlow & Vinales at Suzuki.

    My hope for 2015 is for Casey to come back to Ducati, the Yamahas get a few tweaks, Hopper on the Suzuki, and LagunanSeca back on the schedule:freaky

    current Moto2 riders probably won't love the idea of lining up next to Marc Marquez.. especially the top guys, if the title still remains open, when the last race weekend begins in Valencia.

    2015 RCV by the looks of it. I can't see much detail from those grainy shots though.

    If he was smart he would. Closest thing to factory that's available right now.

    Now Smith's seat, who gets that one? Of the competitive bikes out there, that seat is up for grabs. He hasn't exactly set the world on fire with his time there. Pol maybe? A moto 2 guy?

    Anyone else think it is kinda crappy for Marq to ride in Moto2?

    I always considered Moto2 and Moto3 to be a support class for up and comers or folks who couldn't make it at the top. If Marq is beating the best at the top level is it fair for him to race a lower category with arguably less talent? Just because he can doesn't mean he should.

    Be like a Major League Baseball player going to play AAA or 450 SX champion racing in the 250 race.

    I think it would be cool to see but kinda unethical.

    No?

    It'll be two years since he rode one of those bikes. It'll be great to see if he still has it. I'm sure he will

    Is MM wants to win two ships in one year next year is the time to do it. His bike is so much better and come 2016 no one knows whos bike will work with the new tires.

    plus he is young

    I bet he could pull it off and would love to watch him try.
