Makoto Tamada signed with Yamaha

signed with Tech 3 yamaha... granted not Gaulosis but its a step up for him and keeps him racing in the new 800cc class. The guy can run in the top 5 with a good bike sometimes, so maybe itll be a chance for him to step it up and see the podium a little.

You say Tamada, I say Tomato....He is a talented rider but he is gonna need the right team to make it go! Maybe the 800's will be good to him but he has more of a superbike riding style so?

Sete is too young to retire... i think he just got tired of getting owned after he was suppossed to be the next champion a few years ago then couldnt win again.
