For sure It's what Dorna wants, especially in light of the already depleted field !!

However, I am firm in the belief that it is ALSO what Marco would have wanted , and welcome this news !

Just hope they use the factory bike for a farewell appearance !!

The race will go on....

I wasn't a big fan of Marco and I wasn't concerned about his pre/post interviews or racing, but his accident hit me hard...I still can't believe he's gone:( Now I watched some of his previous interviews and races and paid more attention to him....I never seen his father until I saw the video of his father dropping the scooter and running towards his fatally injured son on the track....that hit me real hard. It's been over a week now and I'm slowly getting over it.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU GOT TIL IT'S GONE....So true!

1000cc next year and last race of the season...
There is no good reason why Honda shouldn't throw the last of their shiny good parts at Aoyama.
