If he were smart, he'd wait for the Monster Energy Cup like Villopoto is doing. The last place I would want to race if I were him is Unadilla. That track has his number.

I don't get it. I just watched a 6 minute video of him riding at Elsinore last Friday. Can't be that bad, surely

Not a shocker. I've been telling you guys this for a week.

They want to come back for the final three races. In the meantime, it'd be helpful if the Team Yoshimura Suzuki Racing semi was on the east coast, rather than at their race shop in California. It's a team decision.

Yep, come back while Dungey is in protective mode(actually, isn't he always in protective mode??) or when Dungey has already wrapped the C/ship up and won't be willing to risk it mixing it up with James. He'll be able to run up front and get that confidence back. A well healed Stewart with a little confidence on a good handling bike in SX 2013? Could make for an EPIC A1. Of course that "perfect storm" at A1 has missed the mark the last several years. There's always next year !!

I'm getting to the point where I think some people should sit and watch from the sidelines unless they have something worthwhile to contribute.

Well that gets rid of about 95% of people on this forum. It's obvious kjs and perry have their opinion on the subject, so let them have their opinion. I think people are just getting frustrated with this same old story with Stewart, whether it's true or not.

You know, I'd actually prefer that a lot of people who think they know what's up (or just like trying to stir stuff up for no reason) being replaced with people who really do know what's up. It'd make for much more interesting reading.

I definitely get where you're coming from. Like I said I think people are just getting ticked about the repetitive Stewart stuff regardless of truth. Leads to a lot of speculation without facts. Honestly, the only person that truly knows is James himself. The rest of us just speculate. Add this to the fact that there has been no motocross action in two weeks and you get rash comments from bored and anxious keyboard racers.

Or repetitive Alessi stuff. Or repetitve Dungey stuff. Or two-stroke vs. four-stroke. I was experimenting with drafting a post earlier today that said, "Jeez, who are you people, and when did the sport get so divided?"

What exactly "isn't right"? The bikes not up to his standards yet? His wrist still isn't right? Is it broken? He's not race fit? Or he wants to watch the dream team on the Telly and then come back?

I'm not gonna lie, but I sure missed seeing the kid ride at washougal this year. I don't get where people get off by getting all super mad that hes not racing southwick. There's still 2 gates full of really fast riders to watch. Chill out with that lame shit.

Same here. He'd have made the show better for sure. But Alessi and Dungey put on a pretty good show of their own...and the 250s have been stellar all season.

True story. I was just stating the main controversy but yes, same thing goes for the other "stuff" you listed above. Same side as you on this one.

Damm, I was hoping he was in. Was also hoping he would make the cut for Des Nations.

I just want him to return healthy and grow back to the confident rider that he was. I think it`s a smart desition to wait. Also, isn`t he riding for free this outdoor season anyway? IMO it`s a mature and well thought through choice.

I just don't understand how he's not ready to race, i would have thought something would be wrong in order for him to not be at the gate.
