colin, yer a nice bloke, give it up and go and spend more time with your family, it might be fun being paid to do laps but to what end, yer 40,go and do something else while you can, you are not going to heal after a big crash like the youngsters do, great pity and sad not to see you win a race in gp but its not going to happen now, go home, talk to the mrs and live a little, eat and drink what you like and want, have fun with your kids while their young, they dont stay like it for long, next thing you know is their all growed upped.
good luck in what ever you decide to do, you were always the best non champion champion.

Colin - I know you want a Yamaha motor... but the deal on the table quite frankly looks $hit.

Yamaha will only supply 3 motors for the season, and refresh 2 of them so (sort of) 5 for the year only out of 12 permitted.
Only they won't be as good as the 5 factory ones, and run an ECU there's no data solutions for.

Also, Yam will be retaining control of just how competitive and well-supported these motors are.

What sounds good about THAT deal? AVOID, AVOID!!!

I dont get what the 'privacy' stuff is all about. As for Colin, as long as he's happy making up the numbers, thats fine. This is being said with riders half his age competing.

The Privacy thing is because the doctors in Germany told us about Pedrosa's injury without Dani or HRC knowing they were going to do it. Apparently it is in the Dorna contract that they can tell us and the press wanted to know what the riders thought about it.
