Neato! I wonder where Hot Sauce will end up? I bet NYK sure likes the fact that he won't be overshadowed by DV12 anymore.

That's akward, I remember reading somewhere that DV was signed to the MDK Honda team for 08 and maybe 09.

DV12 looks best on a blue bike. That's my final answer!

Tedesco is going to Honda. It's been in the works for some time now. I guess this is Suzuki's desperate attempt at finding a replacement. Personally I would have liked to see Suzuki grab a true privateer that is on his way up versus out. I'm sure this is a short term deal. Hopefully DV can put something together. His equipment is no longer a issue.

He looks wrong on anything but a YZ250 if you ask me.

Well, seeing how his equipment is only getting better, After he left Yamaha (which I think personally, was the worst decision he's ever done) it's been all down hill from there. First with racing a quarter of the Supercross season last year with the Bookoo Honda team, than switching to the privateer Yamaha team for the Nationals, and this year, getting on the best privateer team out there, he's certainly getting smarter, and on his way back up. But I agree with Loki, I do also think this will be a short term deal, and Suzuki should find an amateur on his way up in the sport than leaving. They did good with Ryan Dungey.

Perhaps it is their hope that they can get by with DV untill Dungey is ready to move up to a 450.

I think it is too bad that DV didn't have Roger Decoster's influence earlier in his career. If you read what Decoster said, it seems they look at DV as a rider to help develope the bike. He may have a pretty long career for that in the making. I don't think it was done with the idea that he would be making a serious title assault.

If you look at what recent racing results have brought as far as sales, you would think that winning races hurts your sales. 'See any huge numbers flocking to the Suzuki or Kawasaki dealers to buy yellow and green? Deals are plentiful on them in the 3 market areas I am familiar with.

In AZ there are a LOT of racers moving from Honda to Kawi because of their amazing contingency program. I have a Pro friend who rode Yamaha thumpers since the YZ400F came out in 98 and then he moved to a Honda for the 06 season. He then moved to Kawi for 07, as did the majority of the serious racers in the area, and he's made in the thousands off of the contingency program this year. Honda and Yamaha's contingency programs are crap. I'm not sure about Suzuki's program, but I think their issue with selling bikes has more to do with the reliability, or lack thereof, of their motors.
