I'm thinking cars later.

For now, Suzuki, KTM or Husky.

i think v8 supercars are out, he has packed up everything and it looks like he is staying in the USA,

after Stoner struggled in the supercar tier 2 car, and with the very limited testing that class allows i think he realized it would be pretty tuff,

He didn't like the yamaha at the end but loved it when he first talked about riding it.

Chad is a legend but he has done that with just about every bike he has ridden.

Davi has had some good SX rides. He's as legitimate as a lot of other 5-12 place riders who have rides.

Okay I'm a Reed fan, butt ffs I'm sick of his cryptic shit.

And of course half the posts after the statement are from people wanting to know wtf he is on about and if he is retiring or not.

Not that difficult to figure out, he's thanking the people at Yamaha for supporting him during his time there, and likely hasn't signed a new contract with another team as of yet. Was that really so hard to figure out?

Just a wild hunch here ( and a little bird said something ) But possibly taking over Blakes spot , while Blake moves to Redbull KTM? I was thinking Blake had one more year there?

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Yeah it was to be more clear in what I meant.
I am meaning a person can also thank the people they work with without leaving, and he just seems to always typically leave shit open to interpretation.

I get it....he's probably done with Yamaha and possibly without a deal and or retired.
