Maybe John was tired of racing uncompetitive machines in motogp and wants to go back to winning in AMA? Who knows but I hope he makes it back into MotoGP.

I wouldn't say he's rubbish but I'm not sure he's the guy to develop a current GP bike. Not that it matters because I doubt if FB will do anything except make up the grid.

But the worse thing that could have happen to McCoy's GP career is the move to 4 strokes. He was spectacular to watch on the 2 strokes but he was no where on the 990s and didn't do half the job on Nakano in developing the Kawasaki. The 800s surely won't flatter his style. Unless he's vastly changed his style this project will be more hopeless than it already is.

Maybe the move to 1000cc's will fit him better.

Agreed that he really shone in the last gasps of 500cc racing but their demise allied to injury did him no favours for the upcoming 4stroke era. Won't be fast but may be spectacular if the electronics are nothing to write home about.

I would just like to say to "RawDawg" whoever the hell you are.
McCoy might not be the best rider in the world,but let's see you jump on a Motogp bike and let's all see what you can do.

Unless you can say anything thing that's not positive and Bullshit, i would not say anything at all, just abit of advice. :rolleyes:

Well not the best seat in the world but at least he's got a ride after being sh*t on by BE1 Triumph......and it gets his face in the GP paddock which could get him a ride in GP2 when this effort goes tits-up!
