Good on him, if thats what he wants to be happy . . great!
As for those posters here that are expecting his return full-time, just remember the 3 main reasons he left (travel, PR commitments and CRT) and his underlying "clause" that there would need to be drastic changes for him to come back.
9 races on, what has drastically changed of those 3 main reasons? I would suggest . . .nothing. But I am assuming CS was telling it how it is when he made these comments....
One theory stated in an article on Superbikeplanet that does make some sence is this,
What has changed is that there is a young kid who stepped onto his bike and has blasted not only the opposition but many peoples memory of CS into oblivian (poetic licensing here but if you read the article its the same point).
Even Nakamoto has changed from "welcome back any time" (assumption being racing) to "not at the moment " (racing).
Stoner may simply be looking for another "15 minutes" so to speak?
