    Now that Pedro has been kicked to the curb, I hope Kawasaki comes back to MotoGP.
    They are worthy of scorn and derision, the last time Kaw was in MotoGP they couldn't find their ass with both hands.

    New for the 2019 season. Aprillia gets a weight reduction to allow absorbent diapers for the engines. New team sponsor "Speed Depends" "For that faster old you". After 6 laps the rider will throw rod bolts to the crowd as momentos.

    Even better still, Dani wins his first world championship in MotoGP with Yamaha.

    Speaking of Puig, just watched Moojello again. The mouthful coming from Puig to MM on the grid was a little, err...wierd?

    Check it out. Strange shit.

    Right after the 5 min. mark? Right before Santi comes over and has a word?

    Don't think I'm able to pick up on what you're noticing, although mouthful certainly does seem to describe Puig's delivery.

    So 15 mins into a press conference that hasn't started you can already over hear Dani say he doesn't know his future when talking to side reporters. So why is there a press conference?

    Dani seems to have options but can't announce, as he hoped to, any firm plans.

    Basically no news.

    Uggghh...why not cancel the press conference if you don't have anything to say???

    In short, Dani said he wanted to have something to say but unfortunately he doesn't. He does have many options though.

    Looks like he doesn't wanna retire but Yamaha and Petronas are not offering enough money.

    Wish I wouldn't have wasted my time to watch the presser.

    And he said , more or less, two years ago he knew he wasn't going to continue with HRC beyond this year. That now would be the right time to look for something new.

    Dani smiled more in that press conference than I have seen from him in 18 years. Leaving Honda seems to be a big positive! I hope the Petronas/Yamaha deal comes through and Dani stays in GP and that he beats Honda like a drum. :D
