Awww man, Suzuki looks to be somewhere close to the pace but won't join the circus till '15.

Seems they might have come close to hitting a moving target at the moment, in two years the target will be that much further down the road.

Indy off the calendar after this year?

This is potentially interesting news for those of you in the US (and ties in with earlier discussion on this subject).

Nice shot, thanks. ^^^ If that's Pedrosa, he looks frighteningly comfortable. Wonder whether he'll put his hand up for a chassis swap.

Honda is already debuting the 2014 bike and thinking about using it immediately while Ducati is still futzing about with mild tweaks to the bike that didn't work last year.

And Yamaha is trying to figure out how many races they'll have to start from pit lane.

According to tweets, Pedrosa did 9 laps on the 2014 bike and decided there wasn't enough difference to start using it at Assen, and called it a test. Marquez is going to stay another day for more testing.

Would be interesting if Marquez decided to use the 2014 -- he might find something with it as the season progresses. Or not.

Kevin Cameron joked about Yamaha competing in "The pit lane class".

Maybe they can take one of VR's engines and give it to JLo.

It sure would be nice to have another rider or two fighting for podium spots.

Krop, did you ever hear any rumors of Hayden as a possible rider at Suzuki next year? I know you mentioned him going to WSBK next year. I only ask as it seems Hayden upped his pace last weekend and at the test and was thinking it might have had something to do with a possible motogp ride for next year with Suzuki evaporating and him now thinking he needs to show more pace in order to keep his motogp ride for another year. I know the guy is also trying hard but it seemed like he was really on his game last weekend. Well, until he crashed.

Krop mentioned that Nicky loves Ducati and Ducati loves Nicky.
The logical thing is for him to go to WSBK with Ducati.
