Do you think they would push Petrucci or Miller up to the factory bike? Personally I would like to see Jack have a shot but that's just a nationality thing, I think both have probably earned the right to have a crack and would be a lot cheaper than a 'name' rider.

I agree...but what "name" riders are available right now?


MM is signed.

Vinales is signed, and we all know Rossi will sign (most likely a 2 year contract).

Every indication JLo will go to Suzuki.

I don't know what I think Dani should do (or what Honda should do with him.) In any event, when he departs, I think Cal deserves his seat.




So in the current market you have Zarco, Petrux, and Miller. Who would you take???



All three of these guys are in a tough spot because in reality, if they want a "choice" factory seat, (i.e. Yamaha, Honda, or Duc) they either get picked up by Ducati next year or they need to wait another two years.




Another perspective to consider is what you would do if you were one of these guys. Do you believe in the future success of KTM?? I sure do....
Thanks from Macattack

I can see Jack going to Ducati, Honda paid for his schooling, he seems to be over hurting himself, and the kid can flat ride. Besides their one and only world champion was Australian
so why not go with what works.
