Anyone else interested in KR's MotoGP plans?

Haven't seen this discussed, so I'll bring it up...

Hearing the teaser from King Kenny about his possible plans for next year has to be the most intriguing thing in quite a while. Anyone else kinda curious what KR has up his sleeve?

I recall seeing the rise of KR on the mile and half-mile dirt tracks in the early 70s (great battles with Gary Scott on the H-D), and count myself grateful that I saw him learn roadracing under Kel Carruthers' tutelage shortly thereafter. In the AMA "250 lightweight" race at Laguna in '74 (give or take a year) he was riding in technicolor with the others in b/w.

Oops, I get distracted. We all know what happened when KR went to Europe in 1978 (MotoGP, er 500cc title his first year). Then 79 and 80, too. Then he went on to have a bit of success as team manager/owner with WR, etc. Many of you know this history far better than I...(I may have a few facts/years in error).

SO...when I hear Kenny Roberts saying "look for big things from us" it gets my attention. The man knows a bit about riding, development, and management. What rider(s) is he contemplating? What bike? Sponsors? I'm more excited about THIS than almost anything else this year.

But I guess nobody else is interested...debating the NH/AD "pass" is more fun.
