"
Stoner enjoys the racing but not the motogp show - am I the only one that thinks he might enjoy WSBK more???"

no, he's pissed at the fact that the MotoGP world doesn't bow down at his feet...and since that's the case, he REALLY would not like WSBK

Besides since Spies has rejected a return to WSBK since he's been there and won it all, I wouldn't expect Stoner to go there for the challenge...that would be like saying that he still has to prove himself as a racer, like Spies

if you get the impression that Spies is now my hero for walking away from Yamaha and getting on a satellite Ducati, instead of, you know, quitting because he's had a bad season and is under pressure from the factory, you wouldn't be far from right. Good luck wherever you go, Stoner, just make sure that you go far enough.

"Put the 3 of them the same Honda, Yam or Duc and rossi would come LAST EVERY TIME"

You may well be right, but once they have won a good few world championships or well into their 30's, fans of the new riders of the day will say the same thing about Casey and Jorge. Be fair!

wes elmore lmao at your comment as Stoner had announced his retirement early in the season and Rossi rumors were much later but don,t let facts get in the way of brain fade .
If you liked mgp then you would want rossi lorenzo pedrosa and stoner all racing on good bikes as we are lucky to be watching 4 of the very best in the world right now. Rossi can,t ride a ducati on a yamaha he will be racing at the front although i think lorenzo has stepped up another level and will be able to beat him and Dani also seems to have raised his game this year

The only thing Stoner's p!ssed about with MotoGP is that hard work, talent and on track results won't earn you a good bike.

He (she?) who can generate the most revenue for the series and their team will get the best bikes. It's not that much different from other careers where the essential qualites of positions change as you move up the managment structure.

It's unfortunate that Stoner didn't grow into a complete MotoGP champion but remained the type of hard core computer programmer that you know can get the job done better than anyone else, but you never let him out of his cave to meet the investors. Carl Lewis admits to taking acting and speech lessons, even Schumacher had a personality coach.

If Rossi wins a race next year it will only be because Casey has gone.

That why boppers want him gone.

I'd like to see Casey & Vale both on competitive bikes.
JL/CS/DP/VR the aliens all on good bikes would be a great season.

@ bjr.
you need a character assassination coach bro , mabe even a master chef to help you stir the pot better.
on topic , its great to have stoner back and he seems very keen to unleash some speed , he will have no problem matching jlo and pedro , in fact i think he will make them have to raise there bar again , his only worry will be pain through race distance.
he was winning this race last year by a good margin before the tank slapper caught him out.
