I couldn't disagree with you more. His interest is 100% genuine. The man rides a Ducati for pete's sake. Well, at least he was riding a Duc. His team's deal with Suzuki might restrict brands now for all I know... He has publicly said numerous times that he is hooked on motorcycle racing. He has attended numerous MotoGP events and is personally quite involved with his AMA team's efforts. He even plugged his moto-addiction on the friggin' Oprah show! You can't buy that kind of publicity gold. That kind of outside-the-motorcycle-industry involvement is EXACTLY what the AMA needs. And he's put together a fairly competitive satelite/privateer effort on top of it. Certainly no small feat, especially for a team so new. And that's (arguably) more than just money at work. Look at the lack of the Foggy Petronas Team's competitiveness in WSBK despite their big budget and high profile industry insider names. I say cheers to MJ for proving why he is such a winner in everything he does. No better class act out there, IMO. And Mike, if you're reading this, I'd ride with you any time! :D
