God willing and the creek don't rise, I'm in.

I'd love to see Rossi repeatedly return to the top step and be a factor in the championship next year, but it will be either a Marquez repeat or a Lorenzo return.

I'm with you in regards to Rossi.
I don't know how JLo can step up his game other than not breaking any bones.
The way he finished the season you'd think that would be enough but Mark will get even better for sure next season.

Ah the challenges of being a fan--Although we THINK MM will get better there are a myriad of scenarios that would make him a non-factor for next year; accidents, injuries, et al. Could next year be Pedrosa's year? Will Dorna level the playing field and give Nicky another chance? The thrill of anticipation!!

I'm rubbing my hands in anticipation to see how Redding and Hayden do on the Honda tomorrow. It'd be nice to see Aoyama get his mojo back to. I've got to find a new rider to cheer on now that Spies is retired. Glad I bought all that Spies/Ducati gear at Indy.

I'm wondering how much Redding is going to ride. He didn't look so good today.

As a Nicky supporter, I sure hope the RCV1000R is everything Honda claims it to be. Keep in mind though, Nicky is very methodical in his approach, and no doubt the bike will require considerable set-up. I'm not expecting to see Nicky at the top of the time sheets anytime during the 3 day test. Of course Nicky's incredible work ethic will no doubt help the Aspar team and Honda gather tons of data. I'll be happy to see steady progress over the 3 days.

Oh...and if Nicky ends up with significantly better lap times than Cal or Dovi, that will be a sweet bonus.
