Got to say that I have always loved CS riding and even I admitted many a time there is NO-ONE faster on a bike than him (MM included).

This is a Pre-cursor to 2014 3 man Repsol team OR a One Man Team for Casey. All the MM replacing him so quick talk and even Rossi being competitive again has given Casey what he needed and lost a motivation to win again. I look forward to next year and seeing him back on the GP grid where he belongs not playing in cars..It will be great to watch him racing!! And see how MM can handle such a rider like Casey that can ride Beyond a bike when he wants (Ducati!!).

I bet he is breaking Lap records by then end of this test if it stays dry..Just hope he can mellow some of his more Outspoken/Unneeded comments at times!!

why must he mellow in what he says? isnt variety the spice of life? should everyone be happy larikins when obvioulsy some of then seem more adept thatn others? do we really need Lorenzos 2010 antics to return...LOL! when i was watching casey ride i didnt give a toss to what he would say after, some fans just watch the racing for just that.. a bloke riding the fastest motorcycles into submission, somthing Casey did so damn well.

In yesterday's article Marquez said it will be reality when Pedrosa and Lorenzo are back to full fitness, oh no no no Marc, reality will be next year when you're on a moto gp track with Casey Stoner for the first time, he'll show you how quick that Repsol Honda can really go!!

No, Casey and Honda are not seriously considering a race return. The multiple testing events, the carefully controlled media coverage, including 30 odd photos for only six laps, and having nearly his entire race team including chief mechanic fly all the way to Japan to set up the bike for him are just the "little things" Honda would do for any test rider.
I seriously suspect this is Honda's and Casey's way of gauging interest and speed. If he's quick (of course) and willing (very likely) we will see him back in MotoGP.
