Is Reeds contract with Yamaha SX only or was it with an option to outdoors if he they both agreed on it?

If Reeds contract was for SX only and if the rumours are true that he is going to another team, then why couldn't he already be on a new bike and getting sorted ready for A1? Or even If it's Sx only deal does it still go through to October like the rest usually do?

maybe because he'll be riding a all new bike next year and he can't buy it yet/the team has none yet.

His contract may only require racing during the SX season, but it could also include representing the company until the "normal" contract end timeframe.

I'm going out on a limb to say that Reed calls it a career. Maybe we'll see a farewell tour, but I'm doubtful that we'll see him back for the full SX season. He hasn't ridden since Vegas (his own words); seems to be having a lot of fun focusing on his kids; would have to find a new team/deal; and hasn't had the greatest success these past few years compared to where he used to rank in the sport. I won't say that he "has nothing left to prove", as that is up to him. I don't see another race win for him, but would love to be proven wrong.

The guy loves the sport more than most, but at some point, the time comes to walk away from the racing and enjoy it in a different capacity. I could see him being a team manager or brand ambassador, but I've got my money on him settling into the moto dad role and maybe trying to get into four-wheel motorsports.

Hoping he stays blue, but I don't think he will.

I say Reed joins RCH on the new factory Suzuki for his 2018 SX farewell tour. wink

Wait isn't JGR taking over factory Suzuki?

I think he will either go to JGR or retire.

Dude was on fire in Vegas

Monster Cup? Don't contracts usually end Sept 30?

You probably wont see Reed riding much until the AUSX Open.

Hmmmm...I'm confused. Maybe RCH is Factory Yoshimura Suzuki...and JGR is Factory Suzuki.

Hell, I don't know.

Somebody clear this up, please.

That's a very good idea. Agreed.

I think reed may stay blue. He just wants to ride the new one first. I think he would do well on Ktm and the steel frame

No way he retires before the gates drop on A1, None..Zero.

If not for the drive to continue, Reedy is not about to hang it up right after two other high profile guys.. He's a showman, he'll go out when the spot lights have all refocused on 'The Chad'.

That and he's still got a couple records to lay claim to.. I think all time starts is one, and oldest winning rider might be the other.

More Chad = More entertainment.

RCH or JGR would seem the best fit for one more year, and he always liked the Suzuki. I've heard rumours of yellow but wasn't sure if his contract was up yet or if it went through to September / October like most.

I wonder if Reed and Stewart are playing a lot of golf together?

Ahhh, yes, I forgot about him nearing the record for most starts. Regardless, I'll stick to my prediction. He's got heaps of money, his health, a great career behind him, and a beautiful family to grow old with. Logic dictates that those things outweigh any upside of going racing again, but racing dirtbikes isn't exactly a logical decision to begin with.
