He’s doing his own thing.

Obviously you do, since you clicked on the thread. The title is pretty self explanatory.

That was just bad luck ontop of poor preparation how that worked out. He was out of shape as he is every off-season basically. Then got injured when he was getting ready for RBSR and it made it hard to get his fitmess back or get any seat time on his new bike. He was also not supposed to be walking when he was racing the first few rounds.

So long as he doesnt get another injury he should be better off. I just hope its not his last race. I want to see him race the whole season.

I still think it’s amazing that Justin Brayton can snag a ride on Team Honda & win an Aussie SX at 35 (I think...) but Chad, a multi-time freaking champion can’t get a ride on a good enough bike to win at almost the same age bracket. I’m not a Reed hater. I totally respect what he’s done, but Brayton is super humble & is well liked in the industry...but Chad has made a career of burning bridges & dissing past sponsors. You’d think he’d learn, but apparently not. He pretty much has to roll on his on dime at this point. Pretty sad, if you ask me.

Well, let’s just say for funzies that JGR is his first time not to. Maybe he has a “no backstabbing” clause in their contract with him, I don’t know.

Don’t you think it may have something to do with JB showing more speed in general and winning a race/triple crowns/heats the last couple years?

Some, but Chad Reed is a huge publicity draw. He still has long autograph lines, and him just being in your team colors would be worth the money (you’d think) just for the attention it brings. For a team not to want to hire him for those reasons alone speaks volumes to me. Maybe they see him as being too high-maintenance rider than they want. Maybe he’s too hard to please & talks too much shit! Just guessing...

I'd say Chad has done a lot more winning in his career than JB so he is able to say what he feels. But lets not forget JB wasn't too complimentary about the bike he road for RMATV.

I also challenge the burn the bridge theory around Chad aswell. He has ridden for every manufacturer barring Honda twice. They all took him back a second time so hard to see where all these bridges have been burnt in his career. But whatever makes a good story i guess.

There’s never an excuse to be an asshole. Just saying. Like granny said: “You get more bees with honey than you do with vinegar.”

And as far as all those teams that he’s been with twice...if he left them with fond memories of their time together, why isn’t one of them offering him a ride?

Because they’re full. The only team with an opening was HRC, and JB was already under a Honda contract. Who else was hiring?

You call it being an asshole, Chad calls it telling it like he sees it. We want guys to speak there mind, but don't offend anyone in the process.

As far as him not having a ride i would say it is to do with his results, which is the way it's always been and always should be. The economy in the industry isn't that great either, theres a few guys going without at the moment. Yamaha, Kawi, Honda, KTM and Husky are all locked in with existing guys and Suzuki look like they may be out all together. Not sure how Chad's social media has much to do with that.

When you win Anaheim 1 you generally have performed well enough to get a ride the following year. Who else should have that ride in your opinion?

But everyone has a short memory i guess. Maybe he needs to throw up a couple of instabangers and get the "flying at the test track" talk happening.

You’re an idiot. Barcia won a race this year. And was 2nd in points last year before getting landed on.
