Yeah, I thought that Stoner was prone to throwing the bike under the bus. From his track record, I think Cal will set a whole new standard that way.

Well, I think those bikes will suit him better than the Superbike, which he never rode "right." Will he be fast (and hungry) enough?

It's starting to look more and more that the key to success in Moto 2 is more down to the team, and their experience/ resources. There are some mighty fine riders in the class who are just permanently stuck in the midfield.

Good luck to him........

More importantly, how much did he pay for the ride?

I don't know, it seems like if you are on a Kalex or Suter and you've got the skill and ambition you can be near the front. All the guys at the front have a high pedigree and even new comers that you expect to do well (Zarco, Terrol) are doing well and guys like West and Elias (gone) and DeAngilis (sp?) sit midfield even though they are on good bikes probably because they aren't will to take the risks or have lost the fire.

So, by the laws of tweeting, then it has to be that team.

I think he was starting to get the hang of his R1. He'll not be heard from again in Moto2. I think Cameron Beaubier will be awesome on that R1, but he'd probably excel in Moto2 as well. So who takes over his R6 seat? I like Jake Lewis and JD Beach. They both have been pretty competitive with the Graves bikes. Gerloff will be a lot faster next season, so one of those guys needs a better motorcycle.

It will be very interesting to see how he fares.

For sure good equipment is the key. But there are some riders on great teams with great equipment who have completely faded out as the rest of the field catches up, equipment wise.

I am not a Josh Herrin fan, but I am open to him making me one.
