Probably coming from above his pay grade.

I do hope JL will return only after his doctors agree, that he is genuinely healed enough to race again.

He was healed enough to race again at Sachsenring. Just had bad luck. Neither Dani nor Ianonne were carrying injuries and they both got knocked out of the race, too.

Cal raced with no skin on his arms.

The sport awards points (and championships!) to those who can successfully negotiate the fine line between bravery, skill and folly. But there is still such a thing as pushing your luck and even huevos the size of Lorenzo's can't overcome physical weaknesses on hormones alone.

Cal will have some impressive scars but he'll still be able to throw ball with his kids in 15 years. I wonder how long it takes Miguel Duhamel to get up in the morning.

Yeah, Miggie...

He was a bit too brave yet such a crafty racer at the same time. Despite his overpowering desire, he still had a remarkably long career. No wonder he was such a fan favorite. He was like Superman on crutches. My only complaint was when he did that 'start-and park' Motogp at Laguna. He didn't want to ride that thing. Give it to a fearless youngster coming up. But hey, he was at the end of his line and it was an honor to be asked. He had to do it I guess.

I wonder how he's faring with his body these days. Hopefully, not too badly, but I always wondered if one leg ended up being shorter than the other after that last big broken leg. Jeepers, that was something to see him ride with. I'd say it was up there with anybody trying to come back from a debilitating injury. Amazing.

Assen was pushing his luck. He got lucky. Sachsenring was business as usual. He had no reason to not race. If he had a healthy collar bone, he would have broken it in the new crash.

I have read some Facebook posts where he played 45 holes of golf one day then rode his bicycle 50+ miles the next. And he doesn't seem to be punching a time card anywhere.

Motorcycle racing is a burly and sometimes brutal sport. If you are concerned about walking with a limp when you get older, it probably isn't the right sport.

Can someone explain to me how having a single tire supplier at Sachsenring saved money?

Single tire supplier rule isn't about saving money. Its about everyone having access to the same tires; which creates a different set of problems.

According to Bridgestone the single tire supplier rule offered three advantages, lower cost, improved safety and fairness.
If we factor in the cost of motorcycle carnage, rider injuries and lost championships, only one of those "advantages" remain. Everyone has to use the same tire, unless of course they are in the hospital.

Whatever benefits Dorna thought a single tire supplier would bring to MotoGP, needs to be compared to real and comprehensive data.

Bridgestone has provided tires for these tracks and weather conditions for years. They should know what they are doing by now. Are they trying to save money by minimizing the number of tire variations and making compromises?

quote from speedtv.com:

"
The same surgeon, Dr. Joaquin Rodriguez, who used eight screws to fit Lorenzo’s broken left collarbone with a titanium plate last Friday morning, used ten screws this Saturday morning, again at the Hospital General de Catalunya in san Cugat del Vallés, and, in an interview in Spain’s Tele5,
gave the rider the same advice: "He needs repose for four weeks in order for the bone to set"
He added, "I am pleased that Jorge has made the decision not to race next weekend."
"

The advice for JL for Sachsenring looks to have been the same as above. But that surgeon probably has no clue of anything, he just performed the two operations.
