What a year...and of course my boy took the title. I could review the whole year but I'm sure any of you that care are already fully abreast of this years highs and lows. As to my favorite riders the man isn't going anywhere, Hayden is going to ride a Melandri's Duc and kicking him down to the Kwak team. It really sucks that Kwak has done so horribly in MotoGP and the fact that they can't figure out the 3rd rider debacle makes it even worse. You'd think Kwak would just want a damn 3rd bike out there and not force the japanese rider issue...maybe they'll learn to get past it at some point. Anyway, there's a hope that Melandri will do something with the Kwak and Hopper will be at 100% for next year. He does good laps if he's @100%...time will tell. I would also like to say that it's a real pisser that Michelin is out for next year...I love their tires and it'll probably affect what we ride with them not in MotoGP anymore. I have horrible luck with Stones....and maybe they'll improve as a result Anyway...here's to new bikes, new riders on those bikes, and more fun and frolic next Spring.
