He's getting some grief from the missus, that's all, new baby, Simoncelli last year, she's just throwing her weight around now she can't travel with him and he's a father.. He'll be back, he's only 25 or something.

Motogp is proper boring now, Moto2 is much better, i'd rather watch the Superbikes TBH.. If Cal wasn't fighting for Spies' ride next year i'd probably not watch it at all..
Currently run a 2012 DL650AL2 and a zx6rA1P

Stoner the Moaner can ride but a bit lacking in personality IMHO.

Stoners a great rider - even on 125's he was a bullet.
Can't understand why he would announce it now though - unless to get mega money offer not to retire.

He has been testing a V8 touring car over here in Aussie land with Team Vodafone. 

He is not happy with where things are heading with the motogp class.  :icon_scratch:

He is 26 so still young, i would like to see him go to F1.

He's got a new, young family.  Can't say I blame him.  It's a risky game-just remember poor Marco.
