Yeah. I think that fireball incident had to be the last straw!

I think he was going back to Japan and compete in there Superbike series. He was real popular in WSB, it would be nice to see him return to that series.

So now Edwards is riding on a competitive bike with a year's experience on GP tracks under his belt on an uncompetitive bike? Sounds like a master-stroke of tactics to me--no way he'd be top dog on a Honda that first year, so have him ride a different bike and see what the comp is up to while learning the rounds of GP racing. As an extra bonus, instill in him a sense of outrage to win and show Honda who's who. Plus Professional Wrestling-style soap opera of screwing him over first season in GP. Masterstroke on the part of Honda. I predict an Edwards, Gibernau/Hayden, Rossi1-2/2-3 finish next year. Should be exciting, anyway... Kudos to Rossi for putting cash ahead of glory and thus making 04 GP a much more exciting crazy-season spectacle. Although, Rossi was so far ahead and had so many come from way far behind podium finishes, its tough to see him in anything but the lead. Yeah, I'm looking forward to the 04 GP season...

Oh man. I wish I could actually GO to a MotoGP race now. It'd be great to see Hayden and Edwards duke it out while trying to hold off the rest of the field, including a Yammie'd Rossi ...

I don't think it was just cash Rossi was after. It's hard having a stigma attached to your abilities because of the quality of your ride. I think he really want's to prove he is one of (if not the best) GP racers of all time, and feels that doing it on a bike other than the accepted "best" is his way of proving it...
