Could have Casey doing a one off ride for Ducati at Philip Island next year.

Could happen & would be good to see Ducati winning again.

Make Val moaner very happy being passed by the Ducati next year especially if it was Casey on the Ducati!

Stoner at V8s? HE"S NOT GOOD ENOUGH! He'll moan to no end. He'll have his usual nervous breakdown with the bumping and grinding of bumper to bumper every weekend. A couple of races in, he'll be complaining how dirty Lowndes and Whincup drives! Spare V8 Supercars from this clown.

Stoner's 2012 remaining racing performances will be a keeper. It will become hard to find once they were gone from the Internet and the archive.

For whom just learn the excitement from watching Stoner's riding skills better get all of those archive when he ride for the Ducati. His riding was the most beautiful art of racing on a beautiful and wild racing machine.

"For a rider that has more than 110 motorcycle titles through out his life deserve enjoying his 27th years of age after achieving his personal goal. It happened his number was #27.
Perfect example of a successful sportsmen".

Bet you didn't say the same when Rossi left Yamaha with 46 victories under his belt.
Of course not.
And as for the 110 titles? Please do us a favour. The ones you get in Kellogs Cornflakes boxes don't count.
He has 2 that count. 7 less than the real succesful sportsman.

Why you begging us to mention about Rossi when analyzing Stoner's life.

Achieving 110 and actually almost 120 titles in his life is a lots and he deserve to take time digesting each and every one of it how much he has sacrifice and work hard since his childhood.

But if still insist to become Rossi's beggar, so be it. It's too many already a beggar with anti-social attitude like you didn't respect other people life. So, it's doesn't surprise me that everything you know is based on a hearsay due to lack of learning ability.

It may be possible that Honda will have Stoner on some sort of retainer to test their bikes for another two years, meaning that he's not able to ride anything else. If Honda are smart (and they are), then it seems likely that Stoner would be paid not to ride anything else in the short to medium term, much like Bayliss and Ducati.

Just a thought.

19 million should be back-payment for all the races won on Ducati,
this guy has nothing to prove.
Agostini & Hailwood most likely love this guy for humbling others...

Ok ok ok...

So he's a moaner? What does that make Rossi? I have NEVER EVER EVER heard ANYONE moan as much as Miss Rossi in the last two years. And at the end of the day they had a SH1T3L0AD to say about how there was NOTHING wrong with the Ducati, how they would just make it work, Casey wasn't riding it right... bla bla bla... AND THEN ROSSI RODE IT, and almost immediately the excuses and moaning and backpedalling started and never stopped until he QUIT to go back to, shock horror, the best bike (as Rossi fans love saying Casey was on at Honda). If Casey had spent as much time in MotoGP as Rossi on the best bikes all the time like Rossi did, he'd have just as many, maybe more titles...
