Don't tease.
Most of Hayden's career has been on Honda. I remember when he went to MotoGP he said that since he was young he always wanted to ride for Honda and that his dream was to ride a Honda in MotoGP.

So it is seeming likely that Gresini is stuck with AB for another year?

The Indian MGP is toast.

Surely there must be another bone in there somewhere you can all fight over?
yes please move on, this was the one safe place from the ADV Tools ( lots on the board these days) go over to the MX thread with .......... lol

As long as Hayden finds a good bike and crew it will be all good, he's a class act.
They all have balls the size we can only dream about....................

Yes, contract is signed. Only way out is if he is bought out.

So we'll have three classes running under the MotoGP flag next year?
Factory/Customer, production GP/Constructor, and Marketing.

Honda need to team Hayden and Edwards. Fireblade sales would skyrocket.

From BSB Website

Jacobsen jumps to front row start
Jacobsen had his best qualifying performance of the season so far as the New Yorker claimed third on the grid for the opening race of the weekend. Jacobsen, the leading Tyco Suzuki, is now gearing up to improve on his top five finishes at Brands Hatch in his rookie Superbike season.
Jacobsen said: "It's great to be on the front row and great for me to be back at a circuit where I have been before on the Superbike because it means we are already up to speed and know our way around! I think we can still keep improving and get faster and then in the races I want to try and latch on to the leading guys and then give it my best shot."

Bradl will be on the podium three more times this year. - True, after hours access and Twitter photos with silly hats and animals.

Yamaha will exhaust their engine allocation and have to start from the pits. - False

Stoner will be racing next year in Moto GP. - False not even in the fantasy league

A Ducati will be on the podium this year. - True, stolen from the garage and lifted onto the podium using a camera crane.

A Ducati will be on the podium in 2014. - False, too heavy to lift even with the camera crane, and besides DORNA have employed guard dogs. All be it foofoo types handled by dandies, but dogs all the same. A guy could get peed on.

Nicky Hayden will be racing in Moto GP next year. - Yes as an Italian commentator.

Pedrosa will be world champ this year. - True, IF he brings the A-game the rest of the season.

Marquez will be world champ this year. - Hmm, could be... see above, his to lose right now.

Lorenzo will be world champ this year. - True, but only if he brings a bigger "A-game" than Dani, and provided his A-game is better than Marc's.

Rossi will be world champ this year. - False, unless those boys up there all take to plowing gravel. A lot, and Honda blow up all their motors including the ones they would use to start from pit lane.

Rossi will never be world champ again. - True, unless we count WSBK

Spies will never be on the podium in Moto GP again. - False, 2015 he'll get a satellite Yamaha and figure out to ride like Marc.
