I want to compete in MotoGP

I've been riding my Ninja 250 for 5 years. What are the next steps I should be taking in order to achieve this goal?

And then get a time machine, return to the time when you were four years old, and get yourself adopted by a wealthy Spanish family that encourages kids to race dirt bikes.

If your old enough to ride on the street, you already missed your chance. Motogp riders (and almost all successful racers) get their start when they are children.
Take some track days, go club racing, and marvel at the skill that motogp riders possess.

Maybe...... Just maybe.

You do need to get some Marquez DNA into your mix though.

Ride faster until you crash and break some bones that most people would consider "major".
Like a femur.
Or pulverize a vertabrae or 2.
You could get by with just dislocating your spine from your pelvis.

Then go see a doctor who, if he speaks English at all. learned it as a second or third language. Have him slice you open and insert rods, screws, pulleys, cables, plates, and/ or superglue.
Then go race again in 10 days.

maybe you could start by actually racing a few races and see how you fare compared to others and see where you stack up. if you win everything in sight, then you move up. repeat till you get to MotoGP. if you don't win everything at any point in your ascension, stop there and reconsider your plans.

Winning any motorcycle race requires a lot work. Who really needs that?

I suggest you get jollies by trolling on the internet.

Note the age of the racers at the top of their game.

Next note your age.

If you are older, be happy with club racing.

If you are a little younger, be happy with club racing.

If you are a lot younger, find yourself a 250 2t (either KTM or Aprilia) and go racing. As another said, you should be winning everything you enter. If not, enjoy club racing.

I do not have very much road racing near me, but I have watched 3 riders climb the ranks in off road racing. All 3 are AA riders and all 3 get help of some kind or another from a factory. They all still have FT jobs as their racing does not pay any bills, the factories just make it a little bit cheaper to win.

Be happy at the club racing level.
