Other people have made the comment that BMW have a track record of pulling out just as things are going well - F1, BTCC, WRC etc. We met Leon at a BMW event in June 2011 and he was talking a lot about how well Kawasaki were going, and how unresponsive BMW were to comments he and Troy were making, to the point we were very surprised when he re-signed for BMW. I am gutted Melandri has the better of him at the moment, particularly after Donington, but my money is that he will turn up on a Kwak next year alongside Sykes. I can't see BMW going to MotoGP given that everyone else seems to be cutting costs and reducing their involvement - they still have things to learn in WSB before they should even think about tackling GP. Good luck Leon!
